The JMR DataMover is a high speed Enterprise-class data mover that allows users to easily transfer files across networks, whether locally, across the nation or around the world at very near line speed.
The system includes a 2U appliance running CentOS and the DataMover application, which uses TCP/IP for orderly accelerated transactions. The appliance provides dual GbE and dual 10GbE networking ports and includes a custom, easy-to-use GUI compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux OS.
A typical deployment would consist of two (or more) Data Mover appliances. A user goes to the simple user interface on one of the units, and selects the file or folder to transfer. The user enters the IP address or name of the other appliance(s). The hybrid software and hardware solution analyzes and configures the transfer to account for latencies and different file types, sizes and quantities; then, simply pressing the transfer button starts the transfer, while real-time transfer status and progress bar are provided to the user.
Typical transfers across a 10GbE fibre optic link are in excess of 925 MB/s across a 300mS latency transfer, and >1 GB/s with lower latencies. JMR has tested file transfers with both large and small files inclusive of media files such as DPX, large contiguous mezzanine files, and metadata files that typically choke even the highest bandwidth connections.
• Transforms: DataMover implements data transforms (compress, deduplicate, encrypt, and difference), in virtually any combination, during data movement. All of these features operate at full bandwidth, independent of latency introduced by the distance between the source and destination services.
• Links: Links are software abstractions of a WAN or LAN connection. There is no limit to the number of Links that may be established and maintained. Links are persistent, but use no CPU resources while not in use. Each Link describes the source and destination service, the additional data transforms to be employed, and may include the file system directories or lists of files to be transferred.
• Usability: DataMover moves files at line speed independent of file size or depth of directory nesting. It is easily embedded in all platforms including Linux/UNIX/AIX, Windows, and MAC OS X. Since it runs as a service, no code needs to be written and any program that addresses a TCP port for transfer can be routed through the DataMover service.
“Our DataMover appliance will set a new industry milestone in delivering unparalleled performance and convenience for the broadcast, video and digital cinema centric industries when tens of Gigabytes to Terabyte-sized files are constantly being transferred across the country and around the world,” said Josef Rabinovitz, president and CEO of JMR. “The cost savings in the reduction of transfer time per file for a given bandwidth, and the resultant benefit of being able to send more files in the same timeframe is a significant performance achievement.”
To help facilitate ease-of-transfer convenience, the system also incorporates a web-based directory which allows any authorized users to upload and download files with a simple browser plug-in.
