Thank you for accepting our interview! Would you briefly introduce yourself? Mario: My name is Mario, I’m a chief IT manager of O2 Pós in Brazil. And we have finding over internet some software to improve our FTP client to send you some data for our client, and we tested Raysync and it was very good. Raysync: Could you share with us your use case in data transfer? Mario: We have a small client that we need to send the data, the videos to them and we were using another large file transfer solution. We have a playback video that’s okay but the speed of the transmission is not so good. And Raysync it's very fast and best than the other large file transfer solutions. In a little over four months of Raysync usage, O2 has already transferred about 26 advertisement and entertainment projects. The transfer time had a considerable improvement. Uploading files that used to take 2h to 3h, now take between 20 to 40 minutes with Raysync, greatly improving our workflow with major players such as Netflix, Amazon, and HBO. Raysync: May us know currently how big is the transfer volume in your post-production project? Mario: About five terabytes. Raysync: The collaboration between and across the teams is important in post-production, could you please elaborate on how your team achieves high-efficient collaboration? Mario: Basically communication. On a weekly basis, we send for O2 Play, our film distribution division, Masters, Trailers, Artwork and Extras. The content we send is usually heavier and the migration to Raysync was essential in terms of file transfer speed. Another entertainment project that was one of the first featuring Raysync was the Gramado Film Festival, and the experience with receiving and uploading movies files was great in terms of organization, user creation, and speed as well.

With the iteration and development of information technology, the information and technical barriers between traditional media in different forms, such as newspapers, television, and radio, have been broken, and the boundaries between traditional media and new media, such as the Internet, have been gradually dissolved. For media organizations specializing in content production, audio transmission, video transmission, text, pictures, and other file contents are the cornerstone of their survival and development. How to quickly realize content collection, production and distribution is the source power for the industry to maintain its leading position. This year, the bubble of broadcast media has certainly expanded, and new content forms are appearing in the whole industry. Obviously, remote collaboration and other new productivity methods must be implemented in the workflow to make the production successful. What needs to be emphasized is how the industry will continue to develop with the help of acceleration tools. Media producers have noticed an increase in workload. Each department needs to produce media materials with different stages and huge data volume, and smooth collaboration and effective data migration are needed among departments. These files will have different sizes and formats, so it is necessary to use fast file transfer tools to deal with files of any size among various departments of the enterprise. Before introducing a solution similar to the large file transfer system with radium speed, many enterprises had the problem of low team productivity. Of course, enterprises can study appropriate tools, but it needs to invest a lot of manpower, material resources, and money. Some companies choose to simplify this process, but it also leads to data confusion, leakage, and other security issues. Choosing suitable tools can actually provide the correct direction and guidance for enterprises. Raysync will guide big data enterprises to complete correct file transmission steps. Raysync large file transmission system is a popular transmission tool in the whole film and television media industry. It is a set of server and client applications, which can accelerate point-to-point file transmission at a speed of up to 10 Gbps. This will ensure the delivery time of film and television materials and media materials. In addition, it is inevitable to choose a fast data migration tool between many media files based on object media and the size of these high-quality files.

The new energy industry is developing rapidly. New energy electric vehicles, solar appliances, wind energy, ocean energy, biomass energy, nuclear fusion energy, etc. The development of the new energy industry is conducive to the optimization and upgrading of chemical enterprises, accelerating the development of science and technology, and emerging more and more world-class chemical enterprises. Most of these multinational chemical enterprises adopt a globally integrated management mode, distributing raw materials, R&D, production, and sales links around the world according to the advantages of different regions. All branches need to keep close contact, and transnational large file transmission plays an important role in it. However, the process of transnational large file transmission will be affected by many unknown factors, such as transmission interruption and transmission error. If the data leakage and business loss of the enterprise are caused by the imperfect file transmission mode, it will cause immeasurable losses to the enterprise. Solving the problem of transnational large file transmission and ensuring the efficient, safe, and complete transmission of data to the destination is the top priority of business development. 1. High-speed and Stable Raysync Transnational Large File Transfer On the premise of 100Mbps network bandwidth, 10GB files will be transmitted from Beijing to Beijing, Nanjing, and the United States respectively. 10GB files were distributed from Beijing to Beijing, Nanjing, and the United States by using Raysync. The transmission distance was from near to far, and the average upload and download speed were 12.26MB/s, and the longest transmission time was 849s. It takes only 15 minutes to upload or download 10GB of files from China to the United States. 2. Multi-platform Supported and High Performance Index Performance indicators: - The transport connection between a single client and server supports 1Gbps. - 10Gbps is supported by a single server. - Through load balancing, it can support up to 10Gbps. Adopting the patented high-speed transmission protocol, in the LAN environment with low latency and no packet loss, the system will automatically choose TCP for transmission, and on the Internet with high latency and packet loss, the system will automatically choose UDP for transmission. It can automatically adjust the transmission speed to the optimal state in the face of any network latency and packet loss.
The circulation of data has made some progress at the government level, especially since the 21st century, with the help of the power of science and technology, the collected data are more abundant, and the analysis based on these data can help decision-makers make more scientific decisions. For example, the city's mobile phone signaling data can accurately reflect the traffic congestion in each section of the city, and the traffic management department can optimize the traffic route accordingly. Data can help government departments make scientific decisions in advance and provide more convenient and comfortable services for residents. However, these big data managed by the government are heterogeneous, multi-source, massive, dynamic, and isolated, which also makes government agencies face severe challenges. Raysync simplifies the tedious IT management process for the government, and at the same time, ensures the security and controllability of documents. Ensure the security of data during transmission: Raysync adopts AES-256 and SSL encryption algorithms which are standard in the industry to ensure the security of confidential files, policies, and other key information documents; Without fear of packet loss and latency, even the remote confidential cooperation of government departments and unreliable location information transmission can be safely and reliably completed. Accelerate inter-departmental cooperation to fully share the data of government agencies: support the rapid transmission of information across regions, and easily realize inter-departmental and inter-organizational cooperation. Make data easy to manage: government agencies have a large number of departments and users, and Raysync provides user management functions for management to realize hierarchical authority restrictions. A single user interface simplifies the transfer process between departments and various organizations.
Aiming at the problem of the transnational transmission of large files, we break down the problem into two small problems, so it is easy to draw a final conclusion. The factors that influence the transnational file transfer: Clarify the size of the enterprise's files Considering the problem of cross-border file size is mainly due to the high latency, high packet loss, and transmission interruption in cross-border transmission. FTP, the earliest open-source transmission tool in the market, supports transnational file transmission, but the speed of large file transmission can not keep up with the demand of large file transmission of enterprises; E-mail, network disk, and other transmission methods are also convenient. Transnational transmission is also faced with the same problems, such as limited speed and limited file size. Only small file transmission can be realized, and it cannot be considered in the case of massive small files. The fundamental needs of the required file transfer are clarified, and we can go to the next step to understand the influencing factors of the transnational file transfer. Small file transfer: mail and network disk can be easily solved. Large file transfer needs to consider factors of different aspect: transfer speed, stability, security, and ease of use. Raysync is equipped with the tool software of Raysync ultra-high-speed transmission protocol independently developed by Raysync, which perfectly explains the influencing factors and solutions of transnational file transmission, large file transmission, and massive small file transmission from the following seven aspects. - Data Synchronization Supports two-way file synchronization that maintains the consistency of data across multiple devices, ensuring no redundant fragmented files are produced and multi-point data sync is efficient. - Point-to-point Transfer Adopts user ID to achieve point-to-point transfer, eliminating intermediate transfer for rapid file-sharing. - Standard Bank-Level Encryption Technology With the AES-256+SSL+Random salt high-density encryption algorithm, even the developers are unable to recover the root password through the stored ciphertext, making sure the data security is worry-free. - Audit trails Uses transfer logs and operations logs to supervise user behavior, easily trace all operations and file content, effectively control improper usage behavior and help enterprises to achieve better file management. - User-defined Management User-defined management perfectly plots out the organizational structure, supporting group management by defining regions, departments, and role-based permissions that set authority to standardize enterprise users' operation. - Intelligence Nodes Management With intelligence nodes management equipped, it supports unified management of all node machines in both the internal and external network environment to monitor and collect all operation logs and data synchronously. - Hybrid Cloud Storage Raysync supports more than 10 mainstream storage methods including hybrid storage effectively to assist enterprises to store, backup, migrate and synchronize their files in an orderly manner.
