Komprise Hypertransfer for Elastic Data Migration

Owner: Komprise

Focus: Accelerates the transfer of unstructured data files to the cloud

In December Komprise debuted Komprise Hypertransfer for Elastic Data Migration, a tool for accelerating the movement of unstructured data files—including user data, electronic design automation (EDA) files and other multimedia workloads—to the cloud while strengthening cloud security.

Hypertransfer for Elastic Data Migration accelerates data migrations, particularly for data sets with large file counts, or small files or workloads using the SMB (server message block) protocol—data transfers that the Campbell, Calif.-based company says can take as long as weeks or even months.

Such data transfers are a challenge because the SMB protocol requires lots of back-and-forth “handshakes” that increase administrative traffic over the network. Hypertransfer for Elastic Data Migration uses dedicated virtual channels across a WAN to minimize WAN roundtrips, mitigating SMB protocol “chattiness” and accelerating data transfers, according to the company. Komprise says that tests using a data set dominated by small files showed migration times 25 times faster than other alternatives.

Hypertransfer for Elastic Data Migration is targeted at enterprises with petabytes of unstructured data in file storage and the need to tier or migrate data to lower-cost cloud storage.
