Catapult technology– High WAN and LAN data transfers
XDT’s innovative Catapult technology has redefined networked LAN and WAN transfers and review. Its Catapult suite of products delivers unprecedented point-to-point performance by utilizing standard LAN and WAN networking infrastructure. The Catapult® protocol addresses the shortcomings of common network protocols such as FTP, NFS and CIFS and bridges the gap between local and wide area transfers, which extends to remote review of uncompressed frame sequences, JPEG2000 transit compression and Autodesk StoneFS integration.
Using any standard network interconnect, Catapult® Server is capable of delivering the same local throughput performance of storage arrays between local or wide area network connected systems. Speeds of up 1GB/s can be reached over a single 10GbE connection.
