  40. 40. ©Genie9www.zoolz.com Speed Technology: After years of research and development, Zoolz utilizes state of the art technology for lighting speed backup and performance • Global Deduplication • We check the file unique hash to see if a file like it been uploaded or not (not supported on custom encryption) • Compression and machine level encryption • All files are compressed and encrypted in a single step before uploaded using a resource friendly algorithm that is super fast. If you download a file from the web, Zoolz will use on- the-fly decompression and decryption to restore the file in its original format • Grouping • To save multiple server requests and upload, all small files are grouped and sent in one batch • For example, if you got 1000 small files (1 KB), instead of uploading each file (creating 1000 uploads and 1000+ requests) Zoolz will group them in a 1 MB batch and send only 1 file with 1 request, reducing the backup time from 1000 to 3 seconds, and everything is done on the fly, with zero knowledge • Multiple threads (Optional) • The use can choose multiple thread to utilize the entire network’s bandwidth.

  42. 42. ©Genie9www.zoolz.com Global Deduplication: Deduplication works on 3 levels; • Machine, • Company, • Global. Files are checked for duplication before they are processed and uploaded, the file will be compared with a hash to make sure there is no reference before uploading If the files are encrypted with custom encryption, the files will be checked, however, in most cases no global reference will be found
  43. 43. ©Genie9www.zoolz.com Cold Storage Technology • Cold Storage is a very low cost storage service, it provide same features as any cloud storage like instant upload, browsing, search, previews for photos and raw images • The only difference is that it takes around 3 hours for the first file to be restored then everything will go instantly • For example: If you upload 1 TB and you requested 1 file, it will take 3 hours for the file to be prepared. However, if you restore 1000 files, the first file will take 3 hours, then everything will be recovered instantly • During these 3 hours (Warming Period) you can shut down your computer, and once its on and Zoolz starts, it will restore the files without intervention Cold Storage = Instant Normal Storage + 3 Hours delay in restore time
