2020-03-24

In 2014, someone asked in Quora how is the fastest way to transfer the 10GB large files over a long distance? The question has been changed in 2019 to inquire the fastest way to transfer 10TB large files. Exploring this phenomenon, we find that the difficulty of big data transmission in long distance has been lasting for several years. And the requirement for data is surging, the file size has upgraded to 10TB.

'I recommend you to arrange three men with three copies to take three flights and have the data sent, before that they'll need to pray to Buddha, Laojun and Jesus.' That's a reply from the ID 'DEYAMI', who also proves the truth of the dilemma: 'it is not a joke, it's real, that's what we did when we move our data center in 2011'.

In conclusion, the replies can be divided into three types. To send the data in person is the first one. The second method is simple, you can mail the data directly to the destination. The last one relies on the business transmission software, such as the Aspera of IBM and Raysync transmission of Raysync.

For the first two methods, no matter which one we choose, the first step is the same, that is to copy the data to a hard disk in advance. Can you imagine the capacity of 10TB? That is very huge. Never mind how many files there are and how many time should cost, during the whole transmission process, you’ll need to pray that there is no leakage and damage to your files.

The cost of sending hard disk personally:

  1. Hard to guarantee all the hard disks without damage
  2. High cost on the transportation and labor fee
  3. The time cost is too high to estimate

The cost of delivering the hard disk:

  1. Hard to guarantee all the hard disks without damage
  2. The freight is high to afford
  3. The delivery duration is inestimable
