Due to many uncontrolled parameters such as … it is a difficult task to compare the performance of different protocols. For the same protocol, its performance can vary … To exclude these uncontrolled factors, we repeat the same test many times in a relative long time and then compare the mean, worse and best scenario.We also manually verified the performance on the iPhone …

What Happened to my Bandwidth? WAN 1000 Mbps Seattle • 170ms RTT • 0.001% packet loss rate ParisWAN Throughput is 1000MbpsMax TCP Throughput ~29MbpsWhere’s my 970Mbps? At 29Mbps 50GB transfer will take 4 hrs 1TB transfer will take 3.3 days
BIG-DATA and WAN TRANSFER WITH TCPTCP WAS DESIGNED IN THE EARLY 80’S • When data was small & bandwidth was limited • Fantastic for reliable data delivery • Not fast enough for big-dataTCP IS THE ENGINE THAT DRIVES • FTP, HTTP & HTTPS • RSYNC, SCP & DICOM • CIFS & NFSTCP DOES NOT LIKE NETWORK LATENCY/ RTT • Geographic distance increases latency • Network congestion increases latencyTCP DOES NOT LIKE PACKET LOSS • Loss is caused by congestion • Different network capacity • Wireless and satellite communications
So if TCP doesn’t work, what’s the answer?The Aspera Solution
Same WAN Scenario with Aspera WAN 1000 Mbps • 170ms RTT Seattle • 0.001% packet loss rate ParisWAN is 1000MbpsMax TCP Throughput ~29MbpsMax Aspera Throughput ~995Mbps (gain of x34)ROI measured in $$ cost of not using 971Mbps At 995 Mbps • 50GB transfer will take ~4 hrs • 1TB transfer will take 3.3 days • 50GB transfer will take ~7 mins • 1TB transfer will take 2.4 hrs

GETTING IN AND OUT OF THE CLOUDKNOWING WHEN TO CHOSE THE RIGHT TOOL
SECOND MAJOR BOTTLENECKS: LOCAL HTTP I/O1st Bottleneck - WAN 2nd Bottleneck — Data Center
CHALLENGES OF STORING BIG FILES IN THE CLOUD?BEWARE THE OBJECT STORE: • Not like traditional NAS or SAN • Bigger, better, but possibly much more complex • a.k.a. Google File System, Amazon S3, Hadoop Distributed File System • Simple read/write of data “blobs”, indexed by a key • Multiple replicas are distributed across storage for durability and optimized for access • Should work well for storing large numbers of filesUNDERSTAND CHUNKS, BLOCKS and BLOBS • You need to deal with chunks, blocks and blobs • “Chunk” sizes are small (64 MB/128 MB) • Large media files must be “chunked” (1TB file = transporting and reassembling 10,000+ chunks!) • Multi-chunk APIs impede workflow and are complex • Data I/O use the standard HTTP(s) protocol • VERY SLOW at distance • Single HTTP stream slow even locally (<100 Mbps).M&E/ BIG-DATA SERVICES WILL NEED A HIGH-SPEED BRIDGE TO THE CLOUD • Large files moved at full bandwidth capacity with global access • Overcome the WAN and storage bottleneck • Support files of any size or quantity • Transparent to the end user/data owner (GUI, command line, API, browser, etc.) • No hardware to support B2B, B2C, C2B workflow
ASPERA DIRECT-TO-S3 — LINE RATE ACCESS TO THE CLOUDUNRIVALED ASPERA PERFORMANCE • Built on Aspera fasp™ technology for maximum transfer speed • Regardless of file size, transfer distance and network conditions • Precise bandwidth control ensures the available bandwidth is utilized to achieve maximum transfer speeds, while being fair to other business-critical network trafficSEAMLESS INTEGRATION WITH S3 • Integrated with S3 multi-part HTTP for maximum “last foot” performance • Simple configuration of S3 credentials, for both shared and dedicated docroot • Transfers directly into S3 are seamless and transparent to userENTERPRISE-GRADE SECURITY AND RELIABILITY • Secure authentication with encryption in transit & at rest (AES-128, FIPS 140-2, HIPPA Compliant) • Packet-level data integrity verification • Automatic resume of partial or failed transfers • Full support for AWS S3 Service-side-encryption at restINTEROPERATES WITH ALL ASPERA HOST OPTIONS • Any platform (Windows, Linux, MAC, UNIX, iOS, Android) • Any Aspera Clients (CLI, Desktop, Point-to-Point, Mobile, Web, Embedded) • Any Aspera Servers (Enterprise, Connect, faspex)
