  4. 4. © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2015 What is FileCatalyst? FileCatalyst transfers files at full link speed: UDP with proprietary retransmission and congestion control Patented algorithm built from the ground up in-house Transfer rates up to 10Gbps (with encryption) using commodity hardware Not affected by latency and speed degrades, linearly with packet loss Ability to fully leverage multi-core CPU architecture Integration with leading Cloud Storage like Amazon S3
  5. 5. © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2015 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 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 Data Packet
  6. 6. © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2015 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 Destination File Acknowledgments FileCatalyst completely saturates the pipe by sending multiple blocks of data = Increased transfer speed
