We have been talking about data integration, but that doesn't mean we all understand it. It seems simple to talk about data integration, but when we explain the definition, we will find many different explanations. In order to avoid obscuring the concept of data integration, today we will start from the common data integration types in 5, and have a deep understanding of data integration. The definition of data integration According to the definition given by China Science Communication, data integration is to logically or physically concentrate data with different sources, formats, and characteristics, so as to provide comprehensive data sharing for enterprises and make data more valuable. IBM pointed out that "data integration is the integration of technology and business processes, which realizes the integration of data from different sources into meaningful and valuable information." 1 Data Consolidation ETL pulls data from sources, transforms it into an understandable format, and then transfers it to another database or data warehouse. The ETL process cleans, filters, and transforms data, and then applies business rules before data populates the new source. 2 Data Dissemination Data dissenminationj is the use of applications to copy data from one location to another. It is event-driven and can be done synchronously or asynchronously. Most synchronous data propagation supports two-way data exchange between source and target. Enterprise application integration and enterprise data replication technologies support data dissemination. EAI integrates application systems for the exchange of messages and transactions. It is often used for real-time business transaction processing. The integration platform as a service is a modern approach to EAI integration. EDR typically transfers large amounts of data between databases, instead of applications. base triggers and logs are used to capture and disseminate data changes between the source and remote databases. 3 Data Virtualization Data virtualization is an inclusive term used to describe all data management methods, which allow applications to retrieve and manage data without technical details related to data, such as its format or physical location. Data can be viewed in one place, but cannot be stored in that place. Data virtualization can retrieve and interpret data, but it doesn't need a uniform format or a single access point. 4 Data Federation Technically, Federation is a form of data virtualization. It uses virtual database and creates general data model for heterogeneous data from different systems. Data is aggregated and can be viewed from a single access point. Enterprise Information Integration is a technology that supports data union. It uses abstract data to provide a unified view of data from different sources, and then presents or analyzes data in a new way through applications. In the face of the high cost of data integration or excessive security and compliance problems, virtualization and federated authentication are good solutions. 5 Data warehouse Data warehouse is a strategic collection that provides all types of data support for the decision-making process at all levels of enterprises. It is a single data store created for analytical reporting and decision support purposes. Provide guidance for business process improvement, monitoring time, cost, quality and control for enterprises that need business intelligence. The data warehouse is integrated, and the data in the data warehouse comes from scattered operational data. The required data can be extracted from the original data, processed and integrated, and unified and integrated before entering the data warehouse. We will find that no matter which integration type is mentioned above, it reflects a key point. Data integration needs to achieve integration through data exchange between applications. Since data exchange and transfer are involved, it is suggested that you can enter two systems, namely Raysync large file transfer system and SDK integration system, and actually experience several stages of integration work.
In the era of information explosion, enterprises are more dependent than ever on obtaining, distributing and utilizing all kinds of information to promote their development. At the same time, if you want to gain and maintain the position of industry leader, enterprises must have ways to make full use of available data. Achieving the above goals is a complicated process, and one of the most critical components is to ensure the secure file sharing among employees in the enterprise. If employees can't share information conveniently, quickly and safely, the data will probably lose its greatest value, thus damaging the overall competitiveness of enterprises. With this in mind, Raysync Transmission, as an enterprise-level file transfer expert, shares three skills for enterprises to realize secure file sharing. 1. Select High-quality Software Tools To ensure effective and secure file sharing, enterprises must choose high-quality file transfer tools to ensure the integrity and security of data. But what complicates this option is how to pick out the safe and effective file sharing tools in the market. What should enterprises focus on when evaluating file sharing solutions? In addition to the need to protect corporate data from network attacks such as malware and viruses, these solutions must also be easy for employees to use. This is often overlooked by enterprises. Many enterprises choose high-quality file sharing solutions that cost a lot of money, but it is difficult for employees to use or take more time, so employees will inevitably tend to use simple file sharing tools that make their work easier. Although these third-party software has low security or has not passed security inspection at all. Only by giving priority to the user experience can enterprises find a secure file sharing solution, which really provides advanced data protection and is efficient, convenient, reliable, and easy to operate. For example, like Raysync Transmission, both file sharing and file transfer can be quickly controlled and accepted by employees. 2. Create a Security-oriented Culture As mentioned above, employee adoption of secure file sharing tools is essential for guaranteeing that corporate data remains secure. A big part of achieving this goal is creating a security-oriented culture throughout the company. With the passage of time, employees will become laxer and laxer about the content of the rules, and the decline of the compliance with the rules will gradually increase the risk of data leakage. Enterprises need to establish a sense of information security, including data acquisition, transferring, sharing, editing, application, etc., and through stage training, continuously strengthen this sense of security to create a safe information environment. 3. Regular Review Once a secure file sharing solution and related policies are in place, it is critical for firms to actively monitor security and user activities in regard to data protection. Here we can refer to the functional design of Raysync, external chain monitoring, etc., and deeply control the direction of internal file transfer and data management and control, so as to realize safe file sharing. At the same time, the data threats faced by the company also include external cybercriminals, and the continuous development of science and technology also brings system loopholes that are not checked and filled in time under the system upgrade. At present, even the most advanced secure file sharing program may not guarantee the information security of enterprises in a few years. Therefore, enterprises must regularly review solutions to ensure that they meet all security requirements.

The primary objective of ISV customer support is to detect a client’s underlying problem and solve it quickly and efficiently. Obviously, time regards control as a hard indicator for evaluating excellent suppliers and is directly linked to customer satisfaction. Similarly, for many independent software vendors, time is both an opportunity and a challenge. When there is a network obstacle and the operation process is slow, the customer wastes precious time. Although it is not necessarily an ISV's technical problem, it will still show dissatisfaction with your software. After discussing with many cooperative enterprises, we found that for ISV, network obstacles often occur in the process of exchanging large data files with customers. If you want to be ranked as the top ten of file transfer software, the most important thing is to exclude the obstacle in file transfer. As the leading brand enterprise in large file transfer, Raysync gives some constructive suggestions on this issue: - Optimize the Transfer Performance The traditional TCP transfer protocol is a connection-oriented, reliable, byte stream-based transport layer communication protocol. The following figure shows the measured data transferred at Raysync Transmission. In the TCP environment, the latency and packet loss of FTP network file transfer are compared. The problem is apparent in the picture above, the increasing of latency and packet loss casue the decrease of the network throughput. Under the international network environment with a latency of 200 milliseconds and a packet loss rate of 10%, the TCP transfer speed is only 50KB-100KB/ sec. This kind of transfer efficiency is very difficult for large file transfer itself, not to mention meeting the demand of large-scale trans-provincial and trans-national long-distance data transfer. ISV optimization of transfer performance is the fundamental to improve transfer efficiency. - Improve the Network Bandwidth Utilization Rate To grasp the meaning of network bandwidth, we should make it clear that the network bandwidth is not equal to the network throughput. The available network bandwidth determines the potential speed of data moving, while network throughput stands for the actual speed of data moving. - Strengthen the Security Protection If it said that the transfer efficiency of large files is the inspection standard of ISV technology, then security prevention and control is the test of software usability. Whether it is an enterprise or an individual, when choosing a software, they will definitely ask about the control measures for "safety", especially for data transfer. The transfer process accounts for a large proportion of the data leakage events in the past decade, and the causes of data leakage are even more difficult to prevent. For more research on large file transfer, it is suggested that you can refer to the actual case analysis of Raysync Transmission in the file transfer industry.
MFT means managed file transfer. The term MFT began to appear in the mid-2000s. in the field of file transfer, it is a brand-new method of data transfer that enterprises have begun to use, and it is clearly distinguished from "file transfer protocol" in the 1980s. As defined by Gartner, “Managed file transfer software and services enable users to manage and monitor file transfers within and between organizations.” In this definition Gartner uses “manage” and “monitor” to highlight and explain the key differences between MFT and FTP. - Manage – means to manage all file transfers using one interface across all business units, operations, systems, applications, partners, etc. - Monitor – means to monitor all file transfers in one centralized location which in turn means better governance, compliance, and reduced IT costs. Driven by increasingly stringent privacy regulations and the need to quickly transfer and track files globally, many organizations are in the process of replacing their legacy FTP systems and moving towards MFT solutions. In fact, managed file transfer solutions are gaining the most momentum. Here we explain to you what does MFT means? At present, we easily find that no matter in the fields of health care, government, technology, or media, the information now will inevitably move around. In some cases, such data may have to leave the organization's security controls to enter customers or other business systems. The traditional file sharing way can comply with personal needs, for example sending private messages or videos. But this kind of way does not comply with the enterprise needs. MFT is dedicated to creating a more secure and efficient IT environment within the enterprise. Enterprises that use MFT solutions often deal with sensitive information on a regular basis, making security the core of their business functions. Managed File Transfer, as the acronym implies, is a service that manages data and ensures its security during transfer. Enterprise organizations often use it, and it can get rid of slow and temporary methods such as FTP and HTTP. In the final analysis, a good MFT solution should simplify your transfer process and comply with security standards such as SSL encryption solution provided by Raysync Transmission). A good MFT solution should include: 1. The secure connection. 2. Encrypt data being stored or "still". 3. A reverse proxy that acts as a pass-through and does not write any unencrypted data to the server. 4. The ability to support an organization's security policies, such as password expiration or SSL.
FTP traditionally has been the most common way to exchange files over the internet for years. FTP-FTPS-SFTP seems to be an update of FTP, but is this real? Or as everyone has said, that the progress of new technologies has made FTP obsolete? If you are currently using FTP and looking for an alternative that provides visibility, control, and automation while improving security and manageability – this article takes a deep dive into what FTP is, its attributes and gives you the info you need to consider replacing FTP with a better file transfer solution. File Transfer Protocol is a method of transferring data files from one computer to another over a network. As one of the original programs for accessing the information on the internet, it was developed in 1971 as part of the U.S. Department of Defense’s ARPANET protocols and thus predates both the TCP and Internet Protocol . FTPS and SFTP FTPS and SFTP are two separate protocols used as secure alternatives to traditional FTP. Often mistaken for each other, these are two very distinct protocols with different pros and cons: FTPS is an extension to the commonly used File Transfer Protocol that adds support for the Transport Layer Security and the Secure Sockets Layer cryptographic protocols. SFTP is a secure alternative to FTP and is often mistakenly used to specify some kind of Secure FTP, by which people most often mean FTPS. SFTP is a binary protocol in which all commands are packed to binary messages and sent to the server, which replies with binary reply packets. Why Replace FTP? Since FTP is typically used to solve a single problem or meet a specific application requirement, it usually results in multiple discrete deployments with no central management and control — leading to many business challenges for enterprises, which is not visible at the surface. Here are some driving factors for replacing FTP: Security There are a number of risks associated with using native FTP such as having FTP port open in firewalls and a lack of encryption. Exchanging information without the necessary security features could lead organizations to face massive fines in the event of a breach or a public relations disaster. Lack of Visibility When sending files via FTP, the sender has no way to verify whether the recipient received or downloaded the file or not. Also, since FTP doesn’t maintain an audit trail of system actions such as who downloaded or transferred files, organizations don’t have detailed proof of user actions. Storage Overhead FTP doesn't allow sender to automatically expire or delete files. The file will be deleted until the IT administrator delete it, consuming significant storage space and incurring unnecessary costs. Cumbersome Workflow It is difficult and complexed to manage FTP, if you want to send the file to a new contact, you need to set a new FTP account. Because the users have no right to access the FTP server, thus they need to repy on the help of the IT administrator to create the new accounts, retrieve forgotten passwords and remove accounts for those who no longer require access. Alternative to FTP As the enterprise-level file transfer expert, Raysync replaces the FTP server via the secure file sharing platform, and builds the ultra-high-speed transfer engine to realize all internal and external file transfer management of the enterprise and fast and safe file distribution worldwide.

Raysync Proxy Acceleration can be integrated through the standard Proxy protocol. The original application system of the enterprise does not need secondary development. Technical departments do not need to use multiple user names and passwords to establish personal FTP connections. Users only need to know the e-mail address of the recipient to send data at high speed and safely. Raysync Proxy can be run as a process alone, with extremely low resource consumption, CPU consumption of less than 20% at 100Mbps data throughput, and memory consumption of management structure of single connection of less than 30KB.

In times of high speeds, the transfer of information is, perhaps, the fastest speed method. Indeed, it takes less than 1 second to send a picture to your friend. However, in order to send large amounts of data, fundamentally different solutions are needed. Modern business, if we are talking about developed enterprises with a lot of workers, is in dire need of prompt exchange of large amounts of information. Generally, the effectiveness of commercial processes as a whole may depend on the speed of obtaining and processing important information. Speed at all times was an indicator of progress. In ancient times, it took a lot of time and effort to migrate from place to place. Since the taming of animals, this process has begun to accelerate. Nowadays, the progress of high-speed transportation tools such as high-speed rail, freight trains, and freighters is constantly promoting the level of social productivity. If someone now asks to transport a few tons of goods from Beijing to Guangdong by carriage, the service provider is likely to say: "We do not deal with psychos!". Speed has become the indicator of the progress of human civilization. Moreover, the transfer of information flow also requires increasing data transfer speed to develop towards modernization. If we think deeper of history, we can recall that 25 years ago, the information exchange we saw was carried out with the help of fax, floppy disk, and laser disk. With the help of innovative technology, the speed of information exchange has achieved great progress unimaginable in previous centuries in this field in just 25 years. Centralized cloud services began to act as data storage, and such an "invisible warehouse" provided storage and receiving capabilities without using bulky and expensive physical media. But if we are talking about to deal with and transfer the important business information, the solutions mentioned above are actually useless. And the matter is not even in the absence of an adequate level of security of data transferred from public cloud storage, although this is also a very important aspect. Assume that some working servers of a large company need to be synchronized quickly to exchange information. If this operation is performed through the public cloud, it will take a lot of time for each server to download the relevant information. Especially for the financial, film and television, internet, and manufacturing industries, this method simply cannot meet the demand for data transfer. Relied on the self-developed Raysync high-speed transfer engine and Raysync Proxy protocol, Raysync Transmission supports the mainstream cloud storage platforms. With the 10 Gigabit bandwidth, it can satisfy all your TB-level large file transfer and massive small file transfer needs. Under normal circumstances, the server works as a whole, which can receive and distribute data, and automatically connect storage and transfer as a unified whole, which works together without affecting each other. In data security, Raysync Transmission adopts the bank-standard TLS+AES-256 encryption. In file management and control, the central control on access authorization, transfer monitoring, outgoing traceability, and other fine settings make the data completely transparent and traceable. Personalized settings add security to the whole process of file transfer and storage, which effectively promotes the business development of enterprises. As approaching of 5G era, as the vanguard of data acceleration, Raysync Transmission will always provide efficient, safe, and stable file transfer solutions for enterprises.
