Cloud file transfer added to XChange

Marlink has introduced XChange Cloud, a file storage, transfer and synchronisation system running on the company’s XChange IT and communications management platform.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}XChange Cloud allows files of any size or type to be shared across a fleet of vessels, which Marlink suggests could be useful for applications such as storing and sharing status reports from on board engine monitoring systems, for example.

Once transferred, the shipping company’s on shore ERP system would be able to access the reports via the system and begin any automated actions, such as ordering spare parts for the next port call or automatically warning the fleet manager about any technical issues, without manual intervention.

Should a ‘pushed’ status report (or any other file) become lost or damaged it can be recalled using a file redundancy feature built into the system, which stores a copy of each file on both sides by default.

XChange Cloud is segregated from the public internet and accessible only with approved credentials, to ensure security of the data stored.

“In combination with Sealink VSAT services and our extensive portfolio of business critical solutions, XChange is a cost-effective, easy to manage gateway to maritime digitalisation,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime, Marlink.

“Its latest solution, XChange Cloud is a secure, straightforward platform that allows our customers to facilitate the increasing need for sharing electronic files as part of daily vessel and fleet management operations. As our latest digital solution, it will help to introduce more efficient business practices across the board.”{/mprestriction}
