How to Improve File Transfer Speed?
In recent years, the increase in file size and number has brought challenges in file transfer. Firstly, files are transferred across borders, with serious packet loss and delay; secondly, it is also very difficult to transfer terabytes and petabytes of big data and move very large files. It requires users to spend hours or even days. The file must first be downloaded from the source system to its local desktop . Only after success, can upload to the target server begin. Traditional file transfer methods are far from meeting the needs of enterprises for high-speed, complete, and secure file transfer. The performance and security of file transfer have become obstacles to the rapid development of many enterprises. The high-speed Internet connection can help increase file transfer speed, but high-speed Internet connection has a certain threshold. Advanced file sharing technology is required to process large files, that is, those files with time-sensitive information need to receive data as soon as possible. The latest report shows that from 2016 to 2023, the global hosted file transfer market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6%. With this growth, cloud-based file transfer solutions will receive attention, File sharing is necessary for international companies to create a collaborative environment. It ensures that everyone can access the latest mission-critical information, whether in remote offices or branch offices. Raysync high-speed data transmission is developed using proprietary technology based on the User Data Protocol , which can increase file transmission speed and reduce data packet loss. Using the file transfer protocol can also optimize the transmission speed. The use of UDP-based technology can maximize bandwidth utilization and overcome the possible bandwidth limitations of other protocols . In addition, intelligent routing technology is used to monitor network conditions and select the fastest transmission path with the highest success rate. This allows companies to simultaneously transfer large files to multiple global locations, 100 times faster than other methods.

What are the Reasons Why Big Data Does not Work?
The value of any organization's technology integration depends to a large extent on the quality of its big data for digital transformation machines. In short: big data can achieve digital transformation, anyway, this is the goal. So how can big data technology bring success to enterprises in the grand plan of things? It turns out that it is not as good as hope. Optimistic expectations for big data may exceed our ability to actually execute big data. The latest research on the UK online consulting and consulting platform shows that 70% of big data projects in the UK have failed. The study goes on to say that almost half of all organizations in the UK are trying to carry out some kind of big data project or plan. However, nearly 80% of these companies cannot fully process data. However, this is not news. About three years ago, Gartner, a leading research and consulting company, reported similar situations on a global scale and predicted that 60% of big data projects in 2017 would fail the early implementation stage. Worse, this forecast is too conservative, because 85% of big data projects that year ended up flat. So why do so many initiatives fail to meet expectations? When trying to drive value through big data projects, what measures can be taken to increase the likelihood of measurable success? The promise of big data, despite the fact that so many organizations are still working on big data projects, there are some reasons. Volume and speed——Data explosion: exponential data from more sources from increasing speed of creation Diversity——Mobile and IoT terminals, the proliferation of traditional data types and the massive increase in the amount of unstructured data Accuracy——As the saying goes: "Garbage in, garbage out." Big data projects are only as good as providing data. Value——The white rabbit of big data. Discovering influential insights or new value streams for the organization is the biggest challenge. It is a symbol of differences in potential income and competition. Value is the reason for entering big data in the first place. The continued potential of analytics and the prospect of deliverables have turned big data into a multi-billion dollar technology industry in less than a decade. This has a lot to do with McKinsey Global Institute’s 2011 bold prediction of big data: “Big data will become the key basis for competition, providing support for a new round of productivity growth, innovation, and consumer surplus, as long as there are correct policies. And the driving force is in place." The idea is that almost every company in every industry is located in the large, diverse, scattered, and disorganized enterprise data left in traditional systems and infrastructure. In the gold mine. Generated by a business. In order to obtain this treasure trove of information, each company needs specialized access and analysis tools to properly connect, organize, and ultimately transform it into a digestible and analyzable form. Assuming success, the big data infrastructure is expected to provide: Connect and unify all data sources Generate powerful business insights Allow predictive decisions Build a more efficient supply chain Provide a meaningful return on investment Comprehensively change every industry Although the potential of big data has been proven to be successful in many cases , the final state of big data required by most organizations has proven to be a difficult problem.

Raysync Pay-as-you-go provides efficient and controllable services of accelerating the transfer of large files, ultra-long distance and transnational network data transfer, and meets various transfer requirements of enterprises. Case study: An intelligent technology company urgently needs to transfer 8TB of R&D data to the Swiss branch, and there is no urgent need for big data transfer at ordinary times. Customer demand analysis: 1. "Urgent" demand: R&D data needs to be distributed to the Swiss branch as soon as possible and put into production immediately. If you mail the hard disk or the traditional FTP transfer method, you can't meet the customer's demand for the timely delivery of the data. 2. Cost control requirements: The companies’ big data transfer has the characteristics of low frequency. The company has not set enough budget for the big data transfer project. After understanding the data transfer solutions in the market, it is found that a set of software needs to cost hundreds of thousands, which will cause serious waste of resources and financial resources, which is inconsistent with the needs of the company. 3. Flexible requirements: Just like the urgent transfer of 8TB files to Switzerland this time, we can't predict whether the next large file transfer task will also be affected by unexpected factors, that is, the transfer software pay-as-you-go plan is the best choice for enterprises. 4. Data security requirements: Production R&D data is the lifeblood of enterprise production and operation, and its importance is self-evident. In the process of transfer, due to poor network environment and long transfer distance, it may lead to low transfer efficiency, and file transfer security loopholes are more likely to occur. The leakage of R&D data will bring a devastating blow to enterprises. Considering the need to transmit enterprise R&D data overseas, the company has high requirements for the security of the transfer process. 5. Requirements for easy-to-use: The company's big data transfer frequency is low, the interface is simple, the operation is simple, and the convenient and fast transfer software is deployed, which will greatly reduce the time cost for employees to learn to use the software, and the work of data uploading and downloading will get started faster. The Raysync server is deployed at the Nanjing headquarters of the company, and the team members of the Swiss branch can log in to Raysync through IP address and port number, so as to easily upload and download the production R&D data. Compared with the traditional FTP transfer, the timeliness of Raysync transfer is improved by 96%.

Fast Data Transfer — How to Speed up the Process of Enterprise Modernization
In times of high speeds, the transfer of information is, perhaps, the fastest speed method. Indeed, it takes less than 1 second to send a picture to your friend. However, in order to send large amounts of data, fundamentally different solutions are needed. Modern business, if we are talking about developed enterprises with a lot of workers, is in dire need of prompt exchange of large amounts of information. Generally, the effectiveness of commercial processes as a whole may depend on the speed of obtaining and processing important information. Speed at all times was an indicator of progress. In ancient times, it took a lot of time and effort to migrate from place to place. Since the taming of animals, this process has begun to accelerate. Nowadays, the progress of high-speed transportation tools such as high-speed rail, freight trains, and freighters is constantly promoting the level of social productivity. If someone now asks to transport a few tons of goods from Beijing to Guangdong by carriage, the service provider is likely to say: "We do not deal with psychos!". Speed has become the indicator of the progress of human civilization. Moreover, the transfer of information flow also requires increasing data transfer speed to develop towards modernization. If we think deeper of history, we can recall that 25 years ago, the information exchange we saw was carried out with the help of fax, floppy disk, and laser disk. With the help of innovative technology, the speed of information exchange has achieved great progress unimaginable in previous centuries in this field in just 25 years. Centralized cloud services began to act as data storage, and such an "invisible warehouse" provided storage and receiving capabilities without using bulky and expensive physical media. But if we are talking about to deal with and transfer the important business information, the solutions mentioned above are actually useless. And the matter is not even in the absence of an adequate level of security of data transferred from public cloud storage, although this is also a very important aspect. Assume that some working servers of a large company need to be synchronized quickly to exchange information. If this operation is performed through the public cloud, it will take a lot of time for each server to download the relevant information. Especially for the financial, film and television, internet, and manufacturing industries, this method simply cannot meet the demand for data transfer. Relied on the self-developed Raysync high-speed transfer engine and Raysync Proxy protocol, Raysync Transmission supports the mainstream cloud storage platforms. With the 10 Gigabit bandwidth, it can satisfy all your TB-level large file transfer and massive small file transfer needs. Under normal circumstances, the server works as a whole, which can receive and distribute data, and automatically connect storage and transfer as a unified whole, which works together without affecting each other. In data security, Raysync Transmission adopts the bank-standard TLS+AES-256 encryption. In file management and control, the central control on access authorization, transfer monitoring, outgoing traceability, and other fine settings make the data completely transparent and traceable. Personalized settings add security to the whole process of file transfer and storage, which effectively promotes the business development of enterprises. As approaching of 5G era, as the vanguard of data acceleration, Raysync Transmission will always provide efficient, safe, and stable file transfer solutions for enterprises.

Grasping Bandwidth and Throughout, How to Fully Utilize Network Bandwidth?
In the era of big data, the volume of data is growing day by day and the types of data are varied. As a result, big data interaction faces severe speed challenges. Returning to the essence, whether the transmission of TB-level large files and massive small files or both, network bandwidth utilization is the key to improve the data interaction efficiency. In order to ensure the rapid exchange of content, many enterprises spend a lot of money to improve the bandwidth, hoping that with the full use of network bandwidth, any network latency and packet loss will disappear. Although bandwidth improving is important in file transmission, there are so many ways to uitilize the network. There are many factors that affect the success rate and speed of transmission, the most important of which is to distinguish the difference between bandwidth and throughput. Bandwidth vs. Throughput Firstly, we need to know, network bandwidth isn't equate to network throughout. Available network bandwidth determines the potential maximum speed of data movement, while throughput is the actual speed of data movement. If files are moved in a long distance or crowded network environment without an appropriate software solution , throughput may be much lower than bandwidth, because the standard Internet transmission protocol TCP has obvious limitations. Upgrading the network without acceleration software is like moving from a country road to a highway while driving a scooter. If the transportation organization allows, it can drive at ultra-high speed, but the vehicle only keeps the same slow speed on a wider road. Indeed, many enterprises spends most costs in improving network bandwidth, but the actual transmission speed only get tiny imrovement, that made them depressed. How to solve the problem network bandwidth utilization? Internet enterprises may sometimes forget that purchasing more bandwidth is not the only way to speed up file transfer on the network or the Internet, and may not even be the best way. Choosing an effective solution has the same effect on the success rate and transmission speed of file transmission as enjoying private or public dedicated network. Facts have also proved that investing in the right file transfer solution is usually much better than spending money to upgrade bandwidth, after all, inferior transfer mechanisms may never fully utilize bandwidth. Of course, in the revolution of bandwidth utilization, it is always affected by multiple factors. Our newest customer case - Foxrenderfarm. Raysync Transmission helps it to solve the difficulty in transmission of the bulk of files, which explains the factors that affects the file transmission efficiency. With Raysync Transmission, your investment in greater bandwidth won’t go to waste. Our solutions ensure that bandwidth isn’t a conundrum anymore.

HELP! We are surrounded by unstructured data
The global unstructured data is increasing at a rate of 50% every year, and with the development of the Internet and the arrival of the 5G era, unstructured data is now growing more rapidly. What’s unstructured data? Unstructured data is information that either does not have a pre-defined data model or is not organized in a pre-defined manner. Unstructured information is typically text-heavy but may contain data such as dates, numbers, and facts as well. At present, the recognized data in the industry reveals that structured data only accounts for 20% of the total data, while the rest is unstructured data including office documents, pictures, audio, design documents, etc., accounting for 80%. In other words, we are all "surrounded" by unstructured data. What is the potential value of those easily overlooked unstructured data? The unstructured data has a very staple commercial value. When we gather scattered unstructured data together, we will form complete data sets of users, commodities, contents, brands, etc., and form complete asset views and business views. After data gathering, we can analyze the data from different angles. We can go deep into the market to view the development prospect of the whole industry. And the unstructured data is remarkably attractive, a very perfect data table is more attractive than a one-minute short video. The popularity of short videos over recent years is enough to prove it. Why has unstructured data not received enough attention? Looking behind, we did pay more attention to structured data. However, we did not intentionally ignore unstructured data, but were affected by some factors and had to shelve our exploration of unstructured data: 1. The storage technology isn’t mature enough, the bulk of data is discarded The cost of data storage is high, the old data is always quickly replaced by the new one. 2. The scale of the data is too big to transfer The value of the data will fully emit during the process of transferring, the transferring of the bulk data needs to overcome various influences including distance, network environment and so on. Unstructured data brings us new chances! Due to the decreasing of storage cost and increasing of transfer technology, the accumulation and application of the unstructured data become possible. Raysync supports free switching between local storage and third-party cloud storage, it can satisfied the management requirement of data in multiple branches. Raysync is dedicated to meeting the needs of large data transmission within enterprises or with external partners, providing efficient and controllable large file acceleration transfer, ultra-long distance and transnational network data transfer. As an integral part of the big data industry and even the main component departments, unstructured data will bring unprecedented development and opportunities once it is developed and mined. We will get a more completed and vibrant world when we can fully utilize and grasp the data.
