Filestack

Filestack

Filestack is file uploading software designed for cloud usage applications. The company behind the software was founded in spring, 2012, by four MIT students who wanted to do away with the "upload" button and make it obsolete. The team won a grand prize of $100,000 in May in the MIT 2012 Entrepreneurship Competition. The software reached 1 million file uploads by November, 2012, 10 million in 2013 and 100 million in 2014. The company is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, and has an office in Krakow, Poland. Notable customers of the software include TED, Zenefits, Monster, SendGrid, Virgin, SlidShare, Teachable, LearnZillion, 500px, JibJab and Food Network.

Filestack Reviews

Many services and loads of software give users the ability to upload photos, for one reason or another. Developers have many choices when it comes to picking how users will accomplish this. They can program a feature themselves, but why do that when highly functional software already exists? Filestack is perhaps the highest quality example of uploading software that developers can implement into their applications or websites. According to the Filestack website, of the 1.4 trillion files uploaded to the cloud each year, about 20 percent of them fail to upload. Filestack removes that risk with its own patented technology. Last year, the company unveiled its Content Ingestion Network, which uses multiple nodes around the globe to ensure that a file is uploaded to an application or site no matter what is happening. Filstack touts upload times that are 10 times faster than traditional methods. The built-in content intelligence feature can resize and optimize images to the specifications of the application, convert the file to an appropriate format and even add tags, filters and adaptive metadata, all on the network layer. Of course, the most important feature to a developer would be the software's integration into their application, and it's nearly seamless. Filestack's fully customizable UI provides deep integration to really make it feel like it was designed just for that app.
