Compounding this challenge is that all applications are not created equally.
Heavy-data transfers is becoming a more common business requirement in several industries. For example, in the video production workflows require transferring raw video files between global partners. These files can be easily hundreds of gigabytes in size and take 10+ hours per transfer.
Another example, is the enterprise backup-restore, and disaster recovery cloud service market. High speed data restore from the cloud is far more critical than high speed data backup up to the cloud.
Disaster recovery and business continuity services are also delivered by these providers. Backing up data centers and cloud VM infrastructure, protects enterprises from natural disasters, data center downtime, denial of service attacks, etc. Having hot, remote standby, failover locations means having to get the most current heavy-data snapshot fast to the affected locations.
Lastly, new distributed computing models are emerging. For example, instead of moving heavy-data sets to remote cloud VMs in some cases it might be quicker to move the compute to the data.
Unlike proprietary UDP file transfer solutions, LiveONE is more cost effective and has no complex techie setup.
Unlike CDNs or other middle mile networks LiveONE is not limited to just oneway HTTP data flows but can support virtually any transport protocol including bi-directional UDP.
Unlike affordable file sharing services, LiveONE can deliver Heavy-Data many times faster.
