Data Expedition, Inc. Introduces SyncDat
"rsync" Alternative for Wide Area Networks
BOSTON, MA, August 14, 2007 -- Data Expedition, Inc. (DEI) has
announced SyncDat, the first automated directory synchronization utility
designed specifically to overcome the challenges of Wide Area Networking.
DEI's Multipurpose Transaction Protocol (MTP/IP) software technology
allows SyncDat to scan hundreds of thousands of remote files in minutes and
move changed data up to seven times faster than traditional "rsync" or CIFS
DEI introduced SyncDat at the LinuxWorld / Next Generation Data Center
Conference, in San Francisco. "LinuxWorld was the ideal venue to debut
SyncDat," said Dr. Seth Noble, president and founder of DEI. "We talked to
so many people who have felt the pain of trying to use rsync or CIFS over
File synchronization software scans local and remote directory structures to
find changes, then transfers only the updated files. Traditional solutions
were designed for Local Area Networks (LANs). When faced with the latency
and congestion of a Wide Area Network (WAN), they suffer tremendous
performance penalties. Delays in tasks such as content distribution,
backups, and data mirroring can impinge on business critical processes with
"LAN software can really thrash both the network and the local disks,"
explained Dr. Noble. "SyncDat makes much more efficient use of both,
letting it move data faster while at the same time reducing system strain."
SyncDat delivers point-to-point and client-server file synchronization in a
very small software package. Its features include AES encryption, system
authentication, bandwidth management, and support for a wide variety of
Trial versions of SyncDat, or any of DEI's software, can be obtained via
