ExpeDat Links
If you can click a link, you can use ExpeDat!

You've spoken and we've listened.  Over the past several months we've received great feedback from existing and prospective customers wanting an easier way to download data using ExpeDat.  While our command-line and GUI interfaces have always been well-received, we recognized the need to have a web-based option. 

With ExpeDat Links, a user simply clicks a link, whether emailed, embedded in a web page or form, and ExpeDat will handle the rest.  This option is a perfect way for non-technical users, remote employees or contractors, and corporate partners to get the high-performance benefits of ExpeDat without having to fuss around with a graphical interface or command-line client.

DropDat
Drag & Drop Functionality for Seamless Uploads


DropDat is one of our newer ExpeDat client applications.  It is included for FREE in any ExpeDat server license purchase, as are our other client applications: movedat, MTPexpeDat, and our newest option, ExpeDat Links.

DropDat allows administrators and users to create "droplets" which send any files dropped on them to pre-configured locations.  Pre-configured droplets can be distributed to end-users to provide a one-step file ingest mechanism.  Multiple droplets also can be created to represent different destinations and configurations.

Once configured, a droplet requires no user interaction other than dragging files and folders onto its icon.  Each droplet is a light-weight, self-contained file transfer application that can be sent to end-users, via email for example, and placed on desktops or in work folders.

This approach takes the guesswork out of uploading files for any end-user.  It's the perfect fit for remote employees in the field uploading video in the news industry, DoD/Intel community users, and for Digital Dailies, among many other uses.

Please contact Data Expedition to learn how The Associated Press is using DropDat to ensure expedited delivery of field reporter's filings to their London and Washington, DC bureaus.

Spotlight: Managed File Transfer
MTP/IP Integration Strategies

Managed File Transfer (MFT) vendors have historically focused on areas like compliance, risk, and governance.  Oftentimes this leaves the issue of performance to their end-users.  And because the majority of MFT vendors utilize TCP-based transport protocols such as FTP, SFTP, and HTTP, the issue of under-performing data transfers is almost inevitable.

Couple the inherent issues of TCP and WAN data transfer with the explosive growth in data sets, and we have traditional MFT vendors finding themselves expanding their portfolios from a transactional-based world to wanting to provide solutions to new verticals dealing in large data sets.  Generally speaking, these prospective customers need to move their large files across the world in as near-to-real-time as possible.

These challenges often force MFT end-users to cobble together alternatives to better their MFT software's performance, such as using WAN optimization hardware or throwing additional bandwidth at the problem.  Of course, both of these "fixes" have significant costs associated with them and are less than elegant solutions.

Rather than placing the burden on the end-user to adopt costly measures in order to obtain efficient and expedited data transfer, many MFT vendors have found enabling technologies, like Data Expedition's Multipurpose Transaction Protocol (MTP
/IP) and our ExpeDat software.

By relying on experts in the area of high-performance data transfer and leveraging Data Expedition's ExpeDat software and MTP/IP technology, MFT vendors are now providing their end-users a high-performance data transfer experience with very little changes to their current workflow.  Further, the
embedding and integration features built-in to standard ExpeDat make it easy to deploy along side existing MFT software, often with little or no source level modification.
