How to Solve the Slow Transfer of Tens of Billions of Small Files?

small fi

In life, various applications such as Internet social networking, audio and video, e-commerce, scientific experiments, and so on are constantly producing tens of millions, hundreds of millions, or even tens of billions of small files. The understanding of massive small files is usually defined by quantification. Files with a size of less than 1MB are called small files, and those with a number of millions or more are called lots of small files (LOSF).

Difficulties in small file transfer

The transfer of massive small files is quite different from that of large files. The performance consumption and bottleneck of transferring large files are attributed to bandwidth, while the transfer of massive small files is different. Because the filehandle needs to be opened/closed frequently in the transfer of massive small files, but there is very little content to read and write after the files are opened, the bottleneck of the transfer of massive small files lies in IO performance.

Mass small file transfer is a recognized problem in scientific and technological circles, and many technicians have been working hard for it. The following are two solutions given by Raysync, the leading brand of enterprise-level large file transfer.

Breakthrough point of massive small file transfer solution

1. I/O read-write optimization technology

I/O Input/Output, Raysync utilizes excellent I/O read-write optimization technology (reliable, operable, and scalable), supports up to 5000 read-write capacity per second, provides efficient support for massive small files, and provides high-speed transfer support services for massive files.

2. High-speed Transfer Protocol

Raysync has independently developed high-speed transfer protocol, which breaks through the transfer defects of traditional FTP and HTTP and can effectively improve the existing transfer efficiency, reaching more than 100 times the traditional data transfer efficiency, ensuring the high-frequency and extremely fast transfer of massive small file data.
