Do you want to transfer the data from an external source like the internet?
Do you need to consume data from an external source such as the internet, use the authorized cloud hosting data, or use the collected data sets from the research you made, etc., to your system’s storage?
Do you have a lot of data to be used in your projects?
Do you have massive data sets to transfer to your systems’ storage?
Are you concerned about how to safely and securely shift data into your systems?
Why is Data Transfer needed?
Researchers at the Advanced Light Source, the Sensor project, high energy, genomics or astronomy, computer applications, Data Sciences projects, Big Data Analysis etc., need to transfer large amounts of data to complete calculations and get results in a relatively short period of time.
Past Vs Present Challenges
In the past, the physical shipping of hard disks full of data was the fastest option. Now, the data sources are multiple and distributed, which makes scaling, speed and spanning resources between multiple sites to storage a challenge. To overcome these challenges, DTN is used.
What is a Data Transfer Node?
Data Transfer Nodes are dedicated systems built to facilitate high-speed file transfer over a secure network.
