SmartSync®

SmartSync® is built for IT 2.0, the data world of today, not IT 1.0, the provisioning-based, bandwidth-based world of 20 years ago. It recognizes that most data transfers today involve over 90% unchanged data and 10% or less changed data. That’s the reality when global teams use huge databases for document sharing and project management. To support this new IT 2.0 reality, SmartSync®

  • Moves only the data you change to as many places as you need—even hundreds or thousands of them—and then synchronizes it to ensure a perfect mirror.
  • Uses advanced compression and transport technologies to minimize the bandwidth needed to transport that data.
  • Saves massive bandwidth and provisioning costs, and slashes data transport time and costs.
  • Preserves the fidelity of the data, even when there are unexpected interruptions.
  • The result is true lossless data transmission—delivery is guaranteed even with multiple interruptions because the transfer seamlessly picks up where the connection was lost, instead of starting  over from the beginning.
  • Improves customer and partner loyalty by slashing latency and increasing reliability in business-critical customer-facing online experiences.
  • Is the perfect complement to WAN and Application Accelerators because it identifies exactly what has to be changed and feeds only that changed data into the accelerators.
  • Is the only solution that architecturally solves the problems of slow transit time, low fidelity, high latency and high cost, all of which are incurred when you are forced to transport or retransmit an entire file/BLOB, not just its smaller unchanged portions.
  • The continuing exponential explosion in data and information mandates an architectural, IT 2.0 solution.
  • Enables you to deploy applications and use collaboration in the cloud without the problems of bandwidth utilization, performance, reliability and latency.

 

The Ironhawk SmartSync® DCS Platform™ is no longer designated as a Munitions Item under which it was subject to the licensing jurisdiction of the U.S... Department of State. The U.S. Department of Commerce has formally notified Ironhawk that the SmartSync® DCS Platform™ is now classified as EAR99 (and no longer classified as a Munition). It is available immediately to meet the demands of the international community.

SmartSync® Benefits:

  • Reduces file transmission times up to 90% by sending small files and utilizing transport that supports starting where left off upon reconnect.
  • Reduces file thrashing by eliminating the send, fail, resend cycle.
  • Reduces bandwidth consumption up to 90%.
  • Reduces file storage utilization up to 16x.
  • Keeps version control.
  • Works with security protocols and encryption.
  • Intelligent sync knows whether to Delta Encode, Compress or Not Compress (if receiver does not have SmartSync®) based on receiver.
  • Software only solution. Fits on any platform (Unix, Linux, Windows).   Very small CPU and memory footprint.
  • Increases productivity.
  • Increases application quality and reliability.

 

The SmartSync® DCS Platform™ provides for creation of a space and time efficient data distribution network. SmartSync® can be shimmied into an existing system to improve its network performance and resilience. A new system being developed can bind with any of the available SmartSync® interfaces (Java, SmartSync Shell, etc.) to use it as application data transport layer.

Make Your Organization IT 2.0 Compliant With SmartSync®

If you or your customers deal with massive amounts of data, and you frequently update only small portions of it—and/or you have a bandwidth-constrained environment—IT 1.0 applications and transport systems are wasting your bandwidth, inflating your costs, harming your customer experience due to high latency, and limiting your growth. You need the SmartSync® DCS Platform™, the only IT 2.0 compliant solution. Deploy the Ironhawk SmartSync® DCS Platform™  today. Contact Ironhawk Technologies and start experiencing the performance advantages, cost reductions, provisioning savings, and increased customer loyalty possible only with SmartSync®.

There are four SmartSync® Product Categories:  (Read More)

  1. Mobile
  2. Client
  3. Station (Peer-to-Peer)
  4. Server

SmartSync® supports two logically distinct distribution models:

  1. Store Oriented Distribution: data publisher and consumer communicate by writing to and reading from an agreed upon location (path) inside a content-store
  2. Mail/Message Oriented Distribution: data publisher and consumer communicate by sending to and receiving from an agreed upon location (queue) at a Node

SmartSync® supports both distribution models over two distinct connectivity models:

  1. Client-Server: This is the classical hub-and-spoke network model where multiple clients connect/collaborate via a server
  2. Peer-to-Peer: In this connectivity mode all nodes in the network are equal peers and connect directly to each other.

SmartSync® Server enables Client-Server connectivity model, whereas SmartSync® Station enables the Peer-to-Peer connectivity model.
