  3. 3. Corporate Overview What we do? • Provide Enterprise Grade Software solutions for moving large data around the world • Patent pending accelerated file transfers via our unique UDP based approach • Simplify complicated large file transfers for the enterprise end user. • Provide all the tools for fast integration into existing enterprise infrastructure • Provide all the management, security and monitoring tools required to move large data across corporate networks • Provide integration solutions with all major cloud vendors, including, Amazon, OpenStack and Windows Azure 3 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2012
  4. 4. TCP Overview • Provides reliability, error checking, ordered packets in a stream • Congestion control built in • Internet could not survive without it • Works well for most internet traffic, email, web browsing small ad-hoc transfers (HTTP, FTP, SFTP, SMTP etc) 4 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2013
  5. 5. Efficient Transport Protocol FileCatalyst transfers files at full link speed: • UDP with proprietary retransmission and congestion control • Patent pending algorithm built from the ground up in-house • Transfer rates up to 10 Gbps (with encryption) using commodity hardware • Not affected by latency and speed degrades, linearly with packet loss • Ability to fully leverage multi-core CPU architecture 5 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2012
  6. 6. File Transfer Issues with TCP • Flow control limits transmission window, causes dead air with high latency • Very aggressive in response to network congestion, cannot tune in application layer • Result is less than ideal performance on wireless, satellite, or long haul links • Can be tuned but still not ideal for many-one, one-many Data Packet 6 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2013 TCP is a very serial process. Each packet of data must be received before a new packet is sent = Decreased transfer speed Source File Destination File Acknowledgments
  7. 7. Acceleration with FileCatalyst • Ideal for bulk file transfer • Predictable - Can send at a perfect rate • Not affected by latency or packet loss • Congestion Control implemented in application layer • Tunable congestion control aggression • Instantly detect link capacity Source File 7 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2013 Destination File Acknowledgments FileCatalyst completely saturates the pipe by sending multiple blocks of data = Increased transfer speed
  8. 8. Bandwidth Improvement with FileCatalyst *NA = North America 8 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2012 Accelerating File Transfers
  9. 9. Demo of FileCatalyst Server and HotFolder
  10. 10. UDP File Transfer Considerations • Plays fair with other traffic on network • 10 Gbps file transfer, single stream. Found by independent study to be only solution to maintain 10 Gbps with high latency and packet loss. • High performance for many small files • Security, reliability, automatic resume • Automation tools, SDK, central management 10 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2013
