How to Boost File Transfer Speeds 100x Without Increasing Your Bandwidth
It's hard to imagine that in an age where mere household broadband connections are already in the Megabits (or even hundred Megabits) per second, some large organizations still have to transfer files at unbelievably slow speeds. Slow file transfers may not be a big issue if one just sharing small, personal files. But if one working in an organization that has to process gigabytes of mission-critical data under a tight schedule, a transfer speed of just a few hundred kbps may not be acceptable, unless of course, nothing can be done about it. Well, for a long time, that has been the case for file transfers between offices of multinational corporations, universities, governments, research facilities, and other organizations separated by large distances.
