Couchdrop cloud SFTP and MFT dashboard

Not another SFTP server

SFTP wasn’t designed for the cloud. We changed that. Creating an SFTP server has never been easier to manage or use thanks to Couchdrop. Your server is created automatically at sign-up with no config files to manage and works directly with your existing cloud storage.
