The COVID-19 pandemic has cast a shadow over global economic and brought great impact on various industries, including the film industry. According to the data collected by Box Office Mojo, film industry are facing enormous crisis in front of COVID-19, not just because of the nearly empty cinemas, but also the way the whole industry works. When the crisis hit, they have to learn to attend events virtually and cooperate remotely, resulting in many new problems in team collaboration and data exchange, etc. On BaM live which was held by IABM on 22nd September, 2021, Raysync was excited to have Ben Cheung, VP of Raysync, led a discussion on how to speed up the global transfer for film productions, uncovering the impact COVID-19 has on the film industry and the importance of fast and cost-effective file transfer and its future development. In this live event, following topics are discussed: 1.Current situation of film production 2.What can be done to solve those problems 3.Case studies 4.The future of file transfer 5.Q&A: How do you see the future of file transfer services? At the beginning of the event, Ben analyzed the current situation of film production with some infographics showing the drastic drop-down of film box office and its revenues. Besides, massive changes were made in film production environment in order to keep the staff safe. Millions went home to work and used digital technologies to continue to execute their daily tasks. That's why a fast and cost-effective data transfer solution has become more and more important in long-distance team collaboration. What can be done to solve those problems? The data volumes that need to be shared and transferred in our daily work has soared, but the traditional TCP-based transfer solution can’t help to achieve high-efficient delivery. The best alternative UDP-based file transfer solution - Raysync Among the alternative solutions to FTP, most of them are either expensive or complicated to use. Based upon Raysync UDP high-speed transfer protocol, Raysync breaks through the bottleneck of large file transfer which satisfy enterprises’ file tranfer needs by building an intelligent transfer platform that processes and moves massive data at an unprecedented speed.

Introduction A point-to-point connection in telecommunications relates to a communication between two terminals or nodes. Point-to-point is shortened to P2P sometimes. In sharing platforms or in other data-sharing protocols between people, this use of P2P is separate from the use of P2P which means peer-to-peer. For instance, a telephone call when one phone is connected to another, and only the others could hear what one caller says. In contrast, this is a topology for point-to-multipoint or broadcast communication, where several nodes can receive information from a node. Additional instances of point-to-point links include leased lines, microwave relays, and two-way radio. For example, radio and television broadcasts are points-to-multiple. - Have you used P2P? P2P transfer is now widely used to share files by many enterprises in their work after LAN, FTP, and HTTP are outdated. - P2P transfer, known as point-to-point transfer, is an instant file transfer mode, which aimed to enable all clients to provide resources, including bandwidth, storage space, and computing capacity. P2P transfer technology has wide application scenarios, such as audio, video, and data sharing in various formats. - How does P2P technology transfer files instantly? Why P2P transfer is accepted widely by many enterprises? In this article, let’s start with these two questions and explore the answers to point-to-point transfer. Everything about P2P Transfer in One Picture With the growing number of IP cores combined on one chip, the system-on-chip architecture is able to deploy complicated applications. The enormous need for communication and the ample computing capability on the chip put a considerable burden on the architecture in communication. Scalable communication architectures are therefore needed to implement future systems efficiently. Two types of communication systems, namely point-to-point and bus-based designs have traditionally been explored. At the expense of the specific channels between all communicating IP pairs, P2P communication designs can provide the most communication performance. However, in terms of high complexity, expense, and design effort these designs are poorly scalable. By contrast, bus systems can connect a few dozen IP cores economically and eliminate the complexity of the system and the specific cables required by P2P systems. The traditional HTTP transfer is to copy data to the client via server, thus the transfer speed is restricted by the bandwidth. Especially in today's network environment, the large amount of clients connects to one server, the bandwidth of servers will be shared, and the bandwidth of clients is difficult to be fully utilized, resulting in low efficiency of overall data transfer. In general data transfer, client A and client B is essential to build a connection to the server, and then data will be transfer through the channel built by the server and data recipient. P2P transfer technology builds the direct channel between client A and client B, shorten the original upload-download "1+1" time to 1; Secondly, "client A-server-client b" is turned to "client A-client b", which does not transit through the server and does not consume the expensive storage space of the server. Figure 1. P2P transfer in one picture Cons & Pros of P2P Transfer P2P technology is popular in many industries such as film and media, Internet TV, telemedicine, it not only provides freedom and facility to data transfer but also integrates all potential Internet resources. In technical expert’s opinion, P2P transfer is a kind of instant technology for quick data moving and sharing, it is beneficial to creating opportunities for enterprises in today’s market environment driven by data. However, with 5G emerging and the continuous development of information technology, P2P transfer is undoubtedly a double-blade sword, so it’s difficult for enterprises to step forward. Cons: - Low cost: save the cost on the server. - Efficiency improved: remove the intermediate procedures and establish simple connections. - High stability: eliminate the server-centered single-point service in the past, form the decentralized P2P transfer organization, which solved the fault problem caused by the central single point. Pros: Network bandwidth resources are consumed in large quantities: The concurrent connection of P2P transfer makes the resources consumed in large quantities, it is easy to cause network congestion and reduce the performance of other applications. Inconvenient management: The P2P transfer is decentralized, the amount of users is huge thus it’s hard to take care of all users. Security risks of data leakage: The widely use of P2P transfer leads to someone use the loopholes in the system to invade user privacy and destroy data. Some criminals even add viruses in the P2P transfer process, which poses a threat to users' computer security. The P2P transfer technology is not strong enough to satisfy enterprises’ various needs, therefore, there must be a breakthrough. According to whether the clients are in the same network environment, the difficulty degree of P2P transfer technology is different. What modern technologies can be used to optimize and how to optimize? Let's continue to explore the principle of P2P technology and try to find a breakthrough. P2P technology upgrading Based on NAT+Raysync The transmission protocol of RaySync has abandoned the use of transmission messages as both byte counts and TCP protocol. With its revolutionary UDP transmission method, Raysync overcomes faults in existing TCP-based file transfer protocols . The transmission speed of FTP/HTTP is hundreds of times higher and is not reduced by the size of the file, transmit distance, or network difficulties. Raysync can offer secure internal and external sharing of data, enabling you to securely upload, download and edit files on a user-friendly interface. Send huge files via mobile devices and web browsers in every location and anywhere. Characteristics RaySync transmission protocol may make full use of a broad network of bandwidths for the fastest transfer of data. It can enable users in the huge data distribution application scenario to finish the big data transfer in the least time. The multi-channel parallel transmission feature of the link is supported by RaySync Transmission Protocol. When a client interfaces between point B and point A, a multiplicity of unrelated data streams can quickly be transferred in Parallel via the multi-parallel channel property. The transfer of these data streams does not require the handshake connection process, which considerably enhances the transmission in real-time. RaySync transmission protocol is UDP-based and may transit over various NAT devices smoothly. Here we divided into two situations for analysis: On the same network Assume that the internal network interface is 1000M, the LAN bandwidth is 10M, and the bandwidth utilization rate is 50%. Client A and Client B are in the same network environment, as shown in the following figure. If the traditional file transfer method is adopted, the A user needs to upload the file to the server first, and then B can download it from the server, there only 10M network bandwidth will be utilized in the whole transfer process. While through point-to-point transfer, A and B can directly establish a connection, file transfer makes full use of the network bandwidth of 1000M, and the transfer efficiency can be improved by 100X. Figure 2. P2P technology on the same network Raysync combined the P2P technology with Raysync ultra-high-speed transfer protocol, the network bandwidth is fully utilized up to 96%. The file transfer process is accelerated, the TB-level big data and massive data transfer have never been easier. Figure 3. P2P technology upgrading Based on NAT+Raysync On the different network Client A and client B are in two different network environments, and they need to try to connect with the target end to judge whether they can penetrate the network to establish communication. The P2P transfer between two clients will be different according to different clients. Several common P2P transfer methods through middleware include Relaying, Connection reversal, UDP hole punching. Through the following characteristic comparison table, we can simply grasp the characteristics and application scenarios of these methods. Table 1. Characteristics and compassion table According to the methods listed above, Raysync P2P transfer will try to connect with the recipient end in priority. If it is failed to connect, it will be connected by reverse connection or UDP punching. If it is still failed to connect, then the server transfers will be adopted. Raysync will automatically select the best transfer mode in the whole process, reduce the network burden and make full use of network resources. Besides, the P2P transfer based on UDP needs to consider the type of NAT, because the penetration ways of different NAT combinations are not consistent, some can penetrate, while some cannot. Figure 4. P2P technology on the different networks Digging deep into NAT penetration technology, Raysync combines more than 10 NAT penetration technologies with Raysyncb ultra-high-speed transfer protocol and simultaneously applies on P2P transfer. In practical application, the penetration effect of these 10 NAT combinations can meet the current P2P transfer needs. Even in the face of a few impenetrable situations, Raysync may still be able to improve the transfer efficiency and find the optimal solution for P2P transfer. A More Universal P2P Transfer through Innovation on Speed and Management Transfer acceleration ensures efficiency improving In the point-to-point transfer, the patented Raysync ultra-high-speed transfer protocol is adopted. This protocol can eliminate the bottleneck at the bottom layer, it is immune to limitation of the traditional network and hardware, fully utilize the network bandwidth, and realize ultra-low latency, high speed, and end-to-end output service, the transfer rate is improved by nearly one hundred times, thus easily achieves the safe, controllable and stable transfer of TB-level large files and massive small files. Figure 5. P2P technology on the different networks about penetration and acceleration Comparison of the point-to-point transfer efficiency Test environment: - Shenzhen-Beijing, network latency 35ms~45ms, packet loss rate 1% - Server: Alibaba cloud Shenzhen, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk - ClientA: Alibaba cloud Shenzhen, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk - ClientB: Alibaba cloud Beijing, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk 2GB Large File Transfer: Raysync VS QQ Test Results: It takes 689 seconds to transfer 2GB files from Shenzhen to Beijing via QQ, with an average transfer speed of 23.77Mbps; While takes only 173 seconds with Raysync point-to-point transfer, the transfer speed is increased to 94.7Mbps, which is 516 seconds shorter than QQ. 84393 Small File Transfers: Raysync File transfer is automatic For team collaboration, Raysync supports automatically receive point-to-point files from your partners. Compared to the traditional P2P transfer method, Raysync saves your time spend on manually file reception. The auto file reception can be realized with one click to enable the “Allow to receive transfer files from partners” button. A data asset is strictly monitored The admin user can monitor every single task in the admin console. Enter Raysync admin console – Point-to-Point transfer, you could view the point-to-point transfer account, IP, task name, receiver ID, country, states, city, total file transmission quantity, and transmission speed. In the meantime, it supports viewing the details of the point-to-point transfer task being transmitted and stopping the operation, and supports one-click viewing and downloading for historical transfer tasks. All files and individuals traceable, each P2P task can be controlled by the admin. The comprehensive upgrade made by Raysync on P2P transfer overcomes the drawbacks of file and user management, enables point-to-point transfer to better meet the enterprise needs, and helps enterprises manage data more efficiently. Bank-level data security Based on the needs of customers in industries such as film and media, IT Internet, Raysync adopts AES-256+TLS encryption technology between client and server to guarantee end-to-end data security. Aiming at the port problem, Raysync only needs to expose one port, which can meet all users' access needs and greatly reduce the risk of firewall port exposure; Hash verification protection is carried out at the transfer message level, file block, and the whole file to ensure the integrity of the transfer content. The optimization made by Raysync on point-to-point transfer, which has outstanding performance in performance, reliability, and security. The upgraded management design meets the needs of modern enterprises. As a one-stop solution provider for large file transfer, Raysync can be used as a tool for enterprises to realize fast file cooperation, and can also be used as an enterprise data management platform to provide data transfer services for industries such as film and media, finance, IT Internet, etc.
Data transfer has played an important role for enterprises to conduct business with its customers, partners and suppliers while acting as its foundation in mining data value. However, the emergence of the Big Data era has spawned a massive amount of data, while various data types and interactive scenarios have become increasingly complex, the efficiency and security of data transfer is also facing its challenges. If enterprises desire to continue extract value and create opportunities, the foremost priority is to tackle data transfer. Challenges: ● While the amount of data has skyrocketed, the transfer efficiency is still poor; ● Data types are diverse and traditional transferring methods are difficult to guarantee its integrity; ● Network environment is complex while the cases of data loss and leakage are increasing; ● Cross-regional and long-distance teamwork has increased, but high latency and high packet loss rate have also become prominent. The key to solving the challenges above is to find a first-class data transfer engine. This would eminently support enterprises to build a high-speed, secure, and stable environment for data transfer, which brings an edge to lead in a data-driven development. The Great TCP Bottleneck Transfer protocol is the foundation beneath every data transfer, in which TCP is the most commonly used IP transport layer protocol. Compared to other protocols, TCP is able to provide a more reliable service for establishing connections between specific network systems and applications. Originally developed in the early 1970s when networks were still local and data files were small, TCP served as the basic protocol which enabled data to move efficiently and reliably within the local area network with very small bandwidth. To maintain this reliability, TCP ensures that the application data transmitted in a single TCP connection arrives at the receiver’s application in the same sequence as when it was sent. Therefore, TCP uses an algorithm to establish the connection between the sender and receiver, creating transfer requests in turn, and splitting the data into packets, which are then sent separately through the network without the need for acknowledgement until reaching its definition limit. . The sliding window protocol is used by TCP to define the data buffer. Figure 1 below is a simplified diagram that demonstrates how TCP sends out small packets over the network and how TCP windowing controls how much data can be transmitted without acknowledgement. As the packets are delayed, TCP will then slow down the transfer rate with a smaller window size, which further limits the number of unacknowledged packets allowed. TCP algorithm is proved to be effective when data transfer occurs over a short distance while the network is not congested. However, when the round trip time of packet transfer is inevitably increased by distance, both the performance and efficiency shall be affected. Especially under the scenarios of long-distance, transnational transfer, the transfer of large files and massive small files will expose the drawbacks of TCP protocol: ● Low transfer efficiency, end-to-end transfer requires sequence acknowledgement, the data processing is slow; ● Increase of data loss rate and latency when large files are transmitted; ● Extreme congestion control throttling which results in unnatural throughput loss; ● TCP cannot guarantee its reliability, its file check mechanism is imperfect. In essence, TCP cannot be defined as a reliable transfer in the true sense of the word. Especially under the pressure of data volume and distant transfer, TCP is unable to guarantee the efficiency of transfer and yet it may expose enterprises to data security threats. Raysync – A Brand New Transfer Protocol Raysync’s high-speed transfer protocol is a core transfer technology developed by Shenzhen Yunyu Technology Co., Ltd. based on the UDP transfer protocol. This breakthrough technology does not simply optimize or accelerate data transfer but it takes a leap forward in the transfer technology to completely eliminate the underlying bottleneck while overcoming the limitations of traditional network and hardware. Raysync is able to fully make use of network bandwidth thus provides an ultra-low latency, high speed and end-to-end output service. The transmission rate can be increased by nearly 100 times, achieving over 96% of bandwidth utilization rate while easily adhering to the security, controllability and stability requirements for TB-level large files and massive small files transfer. Transport Layer: A Black Tech that Overthrows the TCP Protocol The TCP transfer protocol does provide a reliable data transfer under ideal conditions, but with its fixed throughput bottleneck, a prominent and serious condition would occur due to high packet loss and latency caused by a long-distance network transfer. Raysync guarantees reliability in the application layer with an innovative method that eliminates drawbacks such as low efficiency in TCP, packet loss, processing errors and unstable transfer rate. To ensure 100% reliability, Raysync adopts the best mechanism that accurately identifies and passes on the actual packet loss condition on the transfer channel. Application Layer: Best Alternative to FTP The FTP transfer protocol has been used for more than 40 years, but it is also a fact that the efficiency of FTP file transfer has been far less than the growth rate of data in the face of today's complex file exchange requirements. FTP is even worse in the file management tasks that enterprises urgently need today. In order to transfer files while maintaining security through FTP, this requires complex scripts, continuous maintenance, and even other applications to assist. All of which may cause time and money losses to enterprises by varying degrees. Basing upon UDP’s high-speed transfer protocol, Raysync breaks through the bottleneck of large file transfer which satisfy enterprises’ needs by building an intelligent transfer platform that processes and integrates massive data at an unprecedented speed. Fast, Secure and Reliable Large File Transfer System With its high-speed transfer protocol, Raysync provides all-around support for enterprises in large file interactions and cross-platform cooperation, achieving standardization within and between enterprises. Raysync’s intelligent data compression and intermittent transfer technology can also effectively reduce the network load, providing breakpoint resume and data verification to ensure stable and reliable data transfer. The intelligent management system is able to meet the business requirements of enterprises such as data interaction, sync and backup. Raysync makes sure to quickly integrate itself into existing OA, ERP and other enterprise systems, thus effectively reducing R&D costs to achieve data file linkage between business systems and operating system platforms, avoiding data islands. While Raysync has been continuously improving its file transfer acceleration technology, it also embraces the objectives of solving enterprise file transfer management into its scope of service to a full extent, building a smart file transfer system: ● Data Synchronization Supports two-way file synchronization that maintains the consistency of data across multiple devices, ensuring no redundant fragmented files are produced and multi-point data sync are efficient. ● Point-to-point Transfer Adopts user ID to achieve point-to-point transfer, eliminating intermediate transfer for rapid file-sharing. ● Standard Bank-Level Encryption Technology With the AES-256+SSL+Random salt high-density encryption algorithm, even the developers are unable to recover the root password through the stored ciphertext, making sure the data security is worry-free. ● Audit Trails Uses transmission logs and operations logs to supervise user behavior, easily trace all operations and file content, effectively control improper usage behavior and help enterprises to achieve better file management. ● User-defined Management User-defined management perfectly plots out the organizational structure, supporting group management by defining regions, departments, and role-based permissions that set authority to standardize enterprise users' operation. ● Intelligence Nodes Management With intelligence nodes management equipped, it supports unified management of all node machines in both the internal and external network environment to monitor and collect all operation logs and data synchronously. ● Hybrid Cloud Storage Raysync supports more than 10 mainstream storage methods including hybrid storage effectively to assist enterprises to store, backup, migrate and synchronize their files in an orderly manner.

IT & Internet Industry Challenges: One of the daily challenges faced by the IT & Internet industry is that massive data needs to be backed up synchronously at multiple endpoints. However, due to the tremendous number of large files, the connectivity issues between the transmission service and single file storage server could lead to the inability to fully utilize network bandwidth, instability and data migration issues. Solutions: ● Raysync applies intelligent distributed transfer to improve the speed of transfer several times and optimize the usage of network bandwidth. ● The Raysync data migration system supports multiple computer clusters for parallel transfer with a maximum transfer efficiency that could reach 100 Gbps. ● Built-in file verification and encrypted transfer technology guarantee end-to-end security, integrity, and consistency of data. This ensures that the whole migration process can be completed in a short time with a 100% success rate and zero failure. Financial Industry Challenges: Most financial institutions expand and develop through their branches, but this often leads to fragmentation of data and application environment. And when "organizational performance" becomes the priority of business development, it is necessary for them to collect a vast number of operation logs and integrate the data to improve the efficiency of business development. Solutions: ● Raysync’s admin console allows financial enterprises to quickly collect operation logs, monitor transfer logs, manage user groups, configure file permissions, etc. to promote the rapid improvement of its organizational performance. ● In the meantime, the AES-256+TLS encryption algorithm also plays an important role in the whole process, providing top-level security for the financial industry. Medical & Health Industry Challenges: The problem of isolated data islands has long plagued the health industry, potentially hindering the data analysis to improve the overall quality of medical and health services. In the meantime, the issues with transfer and data storage that is directly related to customers’ sensitive data and massive data generated from genetic research have also impeded the development of the medical and health industry. Solutions: ● Raysync’s large file transfer solution helps to integrate the data across different islands and systems, providing a unified data set for medical and health providers, researchers, and institutions. This is extremely convenient for the stakeholders to collect and analyze data to accelerate the leveraging of Big Data. ● In order to tackle the issues of transferring sensitive data, Raysync adopts standard bank-level encryption and an effective file management system to provide a secure environment for users retrieving the data and the data itself. With the evolution of information technology continuing at a rapid pace, enterprise data transfer is no longer a simple matter. Especially in such complex market conditions, enterprises should not only consider whether the transfer technology is powerful enough but should also take high-quality service guarantees into consideration when choosing the right solution.
