  4. 4. Solving Latency Issues 4 Every network suffers from latency Latency is an expression of how much time it takes for a packet of data to get from one designated point to another. Network latency is measured by sending a packet and receiving an acknowledgement. This round-trip time (RTT) is the “latency”. FTP is a very serial process. Each packet of data must be received before a new packet is sent = Decreased transfer speed FileCatalyst completely saturates the pipe by sending multiple blocks of data = Increased transfer speed Source File Destination File Data Packet Acknowledgments Source File Destination File Acknowledgments Visualize the flow of packets like water running through a hose. With FTP, there is a kink in the hose restricting the water’s flow. With FileCatalyst, the kink is removed and water can rush through unrestricted. | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2014
  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, 2014
  6. 6. Congestion Control Network congestion occurs when a link is carrying so much data that its quality of service deteriorates FileCatalyst traffic plays nicely with other traffic on the link: • Congestion control will immediately detect server receive rate and react • Aggression (how much link capacity FileCatalyst tries to continuously recover) can be tuned 6 to suit your network • Shares bandwidth with concurrent TCP streams • Releases bandwidth very quickly when congestion is detected • Quick ramp up to reclaim un-used bandwidth • Zero tuning required for links between 1Mbps up-to 1Gbps | © Copyright FileCatalyst, 2014
