Seven times faster data transfer on WANs
- 100% utilization of assigned bandwidth.
- Results are typical for real-world* customers.
- Performance achieved for any data type, including compressed and encrypted.
- Gains over TCP increase as networks become faster, longer, or less reliable.
Two to six times faster transaction rates
- Modular design minimizes network overhead.
- Reliable transactions in one round-trip: no three-way handshake.
- Minimal server-side overhead, even stateless servers.
- Direct memory access minimizes internal data copying.
Ten times better reliability
- TCP becomes inoperable when packet loss rates reach about 5%.
- MTP is capable of operating with loss rates as high as 50%.
- TCP error recovery is very slow and forces the flow of data to stop.
- MTP keeps the data flowing while error recovery is in progress.
- TCP tends to flood the network and is highly disruptive to other traffic
- MTP carefully monitors and adjusts its performance.
Built-in control and support
- TCP performance cannot be directly controlled.
- MTP allows applications to configure throughput, latency, etc.
- TCP performance cannot be directly monitored.
- MTP reports detailed statistics on every transaction.
- TCP is not supported: there is nobody fixing bugs or providing guidance.
- DEI fully supports MTP/IP.
- Time critical tasks complete more quickly.
- Network dependent resources are more fully utilized.
- Network dependent people spend less time waiting.
- Existing network investments provide a greater return.
- MTP enables tasks that were impractical with TCP's performance limitations.
- MTP can do more with fewer resources
- MTP often performs as well on the commodity internet as TCP does on
expensive, dedicated lines.
- MTP reliability means less dependence on redundant data paths
- Less down time
- Higher congestion tolerance means less vulnerability to third-party attacks.
- Lower overhead means less vulnerability to direct denial-of-service attacks.
- Better control helps detect problems before they become serious.
- Built in encryption framework allows flexible, transport-level, security.
- Active support by DEI means a fast response to emerging threats.
- Applications can use larger data sets.
- Interactive applications can offer richer interfaces.
- Support more varieties of networks and hardware.
- Explore the possibilities of a faster, more reliable Internet!
* "Real-world" means real customers using our software on their production networks and comparing the results to their previous data transfer methods. It does not mean lab-tests, emulators, or comparisons to ancient, crippled TCP stacks. Anybody can "dial-a-result" to claim 100x or even 1000x with canned tests. We don't.
