How the Content Ingestion Network™ (CIN) Works


The process begins when the user uploads a file from a mobile or local device.


The file is sent to the nearest Filestack Storage Location which are geographically distributed.


When the file reaches the nearest FIlestack Storage Location you are returned an immediately usable Filelink.


The file uploads asynchronously from the Filestack Storage to your permanent cloud storage location.


When the file reaches its final destination, the filelink will be updated to point to your cloud storage.
