Komprise, the leader in analytics-driven unstructured data management and mobility, today announced the availability of Komprise Hypertransfer for Elastic Data Migration, which accelerates data transfer to the cloud while strengthening cloud security. As enterprises migrate more file data to the cloud, IT organizations face many barriers which cause migrations to often take weeks to months. SMB workloads such as user data, electronic design automation (EDA) and other multimedia workloads contain lots of small files and are a particular challenge since the protocol requires many back-and-forth handshakes that increase administrative traffic over the network.
Komprise Hypertransfer optimizes cloud data migration performance by minimizing the WAN roundtrips using dedicated channels to send data, mitigating the SMB protocol issues. According to recent tests performed by Komprise, Hypertransfer improves data transfer rates across the WAN by 25x over other alternatives for SMB datasets with predominantly small files. Komprise already delivers 27 times faster performance for NFS migrations. Komprise Hypertransfer also strengthens security and defense against ransomware by not accessing cloud file storage over the network during data migrations, since data transfers from source to target over private channels.
“Enterprises need to move file data to the cloud to cut costs and unlock strategic value. “With Komprise Hypertransfer you get measurably faster SMB cloud data migrations—shaving weeks off migration timelines while minimizing the chance for errors or data loss. Komprise Hypertransfer makes cloud migrations feasible.”
