Fast File Transfer and Backup

Replicate gives an additional option for data-hungry organizations to manage their data. Replicate is ideal for uploading files to cloud storage and making replica copies of files in one or more secondary locations for extra backup security. Replicate is also a fast, effective, lightweight method to copy or transfer files between sites.

An alternative to real-time sync, save your files and have them replicated on a set schedule to a secondary site as a read-only share. With its lightweight overhead, the file transfer can be enhanced for further speed and bandwidth optimization. This results in faster file transfer across the board, with smaller files seeing up to a 2.5x speed improvement. Replicate runs in parallel with Sync, allowing multiple workloads to be handled on the same appliance, with real-time Sync taking priority.
