  5. 5. FTP / 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) 5 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2014
  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, 2014 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, 2014 Destination File Acknowledgments FileCatalyst completely saturates the pipe by sending multiple blocks of data = Increased transfer speed

  9. 9. FileCatalyst Protocol 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 • Features that reduce amount of data transferred (Compression and Incremental (RSYNC) ) • Security, reliability, automatic resume • Automation tools, SDK, central management 9 | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2014
