How It Works
HOW IT WORKS
CloudDat for Google Storage consists of a VM hosted ExpeDat server integrated with a Google Storage back-end which streams data between ExpeDat clients on your machines and your GS bucket. ExpeDat is DEI’s high-performance file transfer software which uses our proprietary transport protocol to move data across public and private IP networks, overcoming distance, latency, and congestion.
Data moving between your desktop or server and your GS bucket never stops in the VM. It streams through in real-time without touching local storage. You can also use CloudDat to move data between GCP regions, and filesystem access is available if you want it.
The software and data are hosted in your GCP account, so you are always in control. There are no bandwidth or data transfer fees beyond what GCP normally charges for instances and storage.
