Achieve higher data transfer rates than TCP with literally no packet loss
GA tool which builds on the Sterling Commerce Connect and diminishes the network latency resulting in faster file transfer. Timely delivery of voluminous files is considered critical in business processes. Usage of TCP/IP protocol has its own limitations in terms of speed. IBM Sterling File Accelerator diminishes the effect of network latency on large file transfers for more efficient use of your existing large bandwidth line. The result of which speeds up the transfer up to four times faster compared to TCP/IP on the same high speed line. Sterling File Accelerator has built-in congestion control mechanisms that allow maximum throughput without impacting other business applications on the circuit.
It leverages all the reliability, automation, performance, and security that many now depend on in moving their business critical data. Existing customers will enjoy the simple configuration changes that are required to implement Sterling File Accelerator into their existing Sterling Connect:Direct networks.
Built on your existing investment, Sterling File Accelertor works as an alternate transport for our industry leading Sterling Connect:Direct file transfer solution
Sterling File Accelerator ensures that dramatic increases in speed do not create a need for dramatic changes to your infrastructure
It reduces delays in moving large files over high speed networks, and enables you to speeden up your file-based business processes and allows your business to be more responsive. This is accomplished by implementing a thinner and stateless protocol that works directly with your existing IP network
It regulates network traffic more efficiently by using flow-control algorithms that make use of normally-unused bandwidth
It handles today’s high-speed lines for multiple applications from voice to video as well as file transfer
It has built-in congestion control mechanisms that allow maximum throughput without impacting other business applications on the circuit, which ensures that we get the maximum value as well as speed from the investment in high speed circuits
