What is BitSpeed Velocity
BitSpeed™ Velocity is a suite of software applications that accelerate, ensure and secure file transfers. It maximizes your existing bandwidth to achieve 100% utilization of your existing WAN or LAN network. Velocity can make any two servers anywhere in the world transfer files as though they were sitting side-by-side. If your company has large file transfers between locations over a WAN, BitSpeed Velocity can save you significant time and money.
Who should use Velocity?
If your company transfers large files or large numbers of files between locations over a wide area network (WAN) BitSpeedTM Velocity can save you significant time and money.
What are the benefits of Velocity?
Save on bandwidth costs
- BitSpeedTM Velocity will make your existing file transfers more efficient.
Save time and money for your users and customers
- Velocity delivers your important data in less time improving customer satisfaction, increasing employee productivity and improving your organization’s bottom line.
Break the Latency Barrier
- Problem: “Latency between my sites makes file transfers painfully slow.”
- Solution: BitSpeedTM Velocity removes latency from the equation. In fact, the higher your current latency is the faster BitSpeed Velocity will accelerate your existing file transfers.
Maximize Existing Bandwidth
- Problem: “I have to buy more bandwidth to meet my company’s demand.”
- Solution: BitSpeedTM Velocity is more cost effective than buying more bandwidth. Transfer more files in less time without spending more for expensive bandwidth.
Move Data Between Systems
- Problem: “How do I get files from Windows systems to my other servers?”
- Solution: BitSpeedTM Velocity supports seamless file transfer between many Operating Systems, including Windows, Linux, HP/UX, IBM AIX, IBM I, Sun Solaris, NonStop NSK and more.
Reduce Transfer Time
- Problem: “It takes too long to get my data from here to there!”
- Solution: BitSpeedTM Velocity accelerates your transfers, maximizes your existing bandwidth usage and reduces the amount of data sent. Flexible transfer scheduling saves even more time.
Solutions in Speed & Security
Organizations of all types struggle with network bottlenecks in large file data transfer, security of data in flight, and disaster recovery.
If you have large files that need to move quickly and safely between locations, BitSpeed™ Velocity is a cost-effective, high-return solution for bandwidth optimization and acceleration that can eliminate the transfer bottlenecks without demanding a huge investment in big WAN Optimization solutions.
With industry-leading data security features and transfer rates many times faster than standard transfer protocols, Velocity solves file transfer and recovery problems quickly and affordably: Velocity installations usually pay for themselves in just five months. That’s an ROI any CFO would love!
For organizations that are striving to manage bandwidth costs, network latency and congestion, and file transfer and restore demands, Velocity software may be the first, best solution to adopt.
The key to speed is the ingest of files from field and studio production; the movement and distribution of workflow content on a LAN and over a WAN. Use Velocity to dramatically reduce time and increase efficiency, as well as media file backup – store a copy of the data remotely for disaster recovery (files, database images, et al.)
Medical imaging storage and transmission needs are growing quickly, especially with the advent of higher quality 3D imaging. Velocity ensures complete, secure file transfers for output from Medical X-ray, Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound, Nuclear imaging, Radiation therapy, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and other medical imaging systems.
Fast data transmission is a key element of seismic data acquisition. Having a fast and accurate transmission (no error rate) ensures that a seismic data acquisition station can send seismic data correctly. Turning around exploration data in hours instead of days is a huge cost savings.
DR (Disaster Recovery)
Speed up and secure movement of large files and repositories between data centers.
Institutions are working hard to protect sensitive financial information. High-speed transmission and encryption of files is the most effective method for protecting sensitive data traveling over WANs. Plus, transmission lines are expensive, and Velocity can double the efficiency of current leased lines.
Data transmission between government departments and agencies must be secure as well as fast. Velocity’s file transfer solution provides the speed, data guarantee and security necessary to demonstrate compliance with government and industry regulations including the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), GLBA, and Sarbanes Oxley (SOX).
There are dozens of use cases for accelerating and ensuring data for global organizations. These include: Accelerate delivery of databases and files sent by middleware (ETL, ERP); meet document archive requirements; enable faster secure transfer to and from corporate and public clouds; FTP files server consolidation; DR of large files, e.g. databases; File Synchronization for regional hubs; enablement of fast server image and VM movement.
