Global File Distribution
Today’s modern enterprises require real-time collaboration across global sites. Data created in one location must be available for consumption or modification in multiple sites around the world, fast.
Challenges with global data distribution
Traditional Replication Methods
Includes utilities such as rsync, FTP, DFSR, and Robocopy
Leads to multiple versions and data loss across different locations
Becomes expensive due to excess capacity requirements
Traditional Remote Access
Lowers performance from centralizing your data and accessing it from multiple remote sites
Increases costs as enterprise WAN requires lease lines or MPLS links
Drives latency when enterprises use site-to- site VPN over public internet link
The Network is the Bottleneck
Challenges with LAN protocols (SMB/NFS) not working efficiently with latency issues
Large bandwidth requirement for data access across the source and target sites
Though technologies such as WAN optimization may improve performance it ultimately does not solve the problem
