​StorageDNA Integrates ExpeDat To Boost File Transfer

StorageDNA is integrating Date Expedition’s ExpeDat into DNAfabric for accelerated data transfers in media and entertainment workflows.

DNAfabric is described as a subscription-based, data services platform for users to better manage data across disk, tape, WAN and cloud. ExpeDat is based on DEI’s proprietary Multipurpose Transaction Protocol (MTP/IP), which automatically adapts to network variability without human guidance

Examples of how DNAfabric utilizes ExpeDat for remote transfers are large-scale storage mirroring across sites, synchronizing data from on-premise to cloud storage, and creating a hybrid data pipeline for cloud editing, transcoding and AI.

Tridib Chakravarty, President and CEO of StorageDNA: “ExpeDat maximized every long-distance link we threw at it. From testing site to site, on-premise to cloud, and inter-cloud and intra-cloud workflows, ExpeDat was able to fully saturate these all network paths."
