Earlier this year IBM partnered with research firm, Vanson Bourne to gather insight into the top challenges facing IT in 2014. We asked 460 IT professionals** from around the globe (US, UK, France, Germany, South Africa, India, Australia); What issues are you experiencing in moving Big Data?
Here are the top issues:
- Multiple moves to share
- Bandwidth control and allocation
- Success rates or SLAs
Please comment to this blog with any other issues you are seeing in your business.
Why do these problems exist?
The answer is actually quite simply that the traditional TCP-based transfer tools like FTP/HTTP, were not designed for the efficient movement of large files. They do not fully utilize the available bandwidth, whether over WAN, wireless or satellite connections. These transfer options suffer high latency and packet loss which dramatically worsen in less than optimal network conditions.
Thankfully, there is a solution that solves the issues of speed, distance, simplified sharing, bandwidth control, and quality of service. The solution is the FASP protocol developed by Aspera, an IBM Company. Aspera FASP technology actually performs best in the face of large file sizes, long distances, and less than optimal networks.
