YADE uses a Virtual File System (VFS) as an interface to access and transfer files from source systems to and target systems.
- The VFS works as a layer that encapsulates details of individual file transfer protocols such as FTP, SFTP etc..
- The VFS brings a major shift in perspective: file transfers are not effected from a local host to a remote host or vice versa, instead transfers are a effected as copy or move operations between any VFS source system and any target system.
- The VFS allows to use any combination of source system and target system for file tansfers.
The Virtual File System allows more flexiblity flexibility when integrating new protocols. Get in Contact with the SOS if you face requirements to require support of additional protocols.
