When companies are transferring files over long distances, when they choose traditional FTP, network disks, etc. to transfer large files, in addition to slow speed, they often encounter transmission errors, transmission interruptions, and resuming transmissions. Although the traditional FTP transfer method supports the batch transfer of folders, when the number of files is large, in addition to the very slow speed, there are often problems such as missing files, file content errors, and inconsistent file numbers. When the file capacity increases and the network environment becomes worse, the efficiency of file transfer and data exchange is low, and the security is poor. If the file is larger, usually a lower method such as express hard disk is used, which cannot meet the requirements of enterprises to obtain files on time. Seriously affect the overall operating efficiency of the enterprise. This type of data transfer requires the use of data transfer protocols to ensure efficient and rapid transfer on high-speed networks. Several new data transfer protocols based on TCP or UDP have been introduced, and some comparative analysis and research have been carried out on such protocols. There are currently several data transfer protocols and congestion control mechanisms GridFTP, FASP, QUIC, BBR, and LEDBAT, which are potential candidates for comparison in various scenarios. These protocols are designed to make fair use of available bandwidth among competing streams and provide reduced packet loss, reduced delay, and fast data transmission. In this paper, the behavior and performance of the data transfer protocol in various scenarios are explained. These scenarios include transfers with various file sizes, multiple streams, background, and competing for traffic. The results show that FASP and GridFTP have the best performance among all protocols in most scenarios, especially for long-distance transfer with a large bandwidth-delay product . Due to the nature of its current implementation, QUIC has the lowest performance, which limits the size of the transmitted data and the bandwidth used. TCP BBR performs well in short-distance scenarios, but its performance decreases as the distance increases. The performance of LEDBAT cannot be predicted, so a complete evaluation cannot be performed. Comparing the performance of the protocol with background traffic and competing traffic shows that, except for FASP, most protocols are fair and radical. In addition, QUIC and FASP, which have the highest CPU utilization, are used to measure the resource utilization of each protocol on the sender and receiver. The performance of LEDBAT cannot be predicted, so a complete evaluation cannot be performed.

Introduction A point-to-point connection in telecommunications relates to a communication between two terminals or nodes. Point-to-point is shortened to P2P sometimes. In sharing platforms or in other data-sharing protocols between people, this use of P2P is separate from the use of P2P which means peer-to-peer. For instance, a telephone call when one phone is connected to another, and only the others could hear what one caller says. In contrast, this is a topology for point-to-multipoint or broadcast communication, where several nodes can receive information from a node. Additional instances of point-to-point links include leased lines, microwave relays, and two-way radio. For example, radio and television broadcasts are points-to-multiple. - Have you used P2P? P2P transfer is now widely used to share files by many enterprises in their work after LAN, FTP, and HTTP are outdated. - P2P transfer, known as point-to-point transfer, is an instant file transfer mode, which aimed to enable all clients to provide resources, including bandwidth, storage space, and computing capacity. P2P transfer technology has wide application scenarios, such as audio, video, and data sharing in various formats. - How does P2P technology transfer files instantly? Why P2P transfer is accepted widely by many enterprises? In this article, let’s start with these two questions and explore the answers to point-to-point transfer. Everything about P2P Transfer in One Picture With the growing number of IP cores combined on one chip, the system-on-chip architecture is able to deploy complicated applications. The enormous need for communication and the ample computing capability on the chip put a considerable burden on the architecture in communication. Scalable communication architectures are therefore needed to implement future systems efficiently. Two types of communication systems, namely point-to-point and bus-based designs have traditionally been explored. At the expense of the specific channels between all communicating IP pairs, P2P communication designs can provide the most communication performance. However, in terms of high complexity, expense, and design effort these designs are poorly scalable. By contrast, bus systems can connect a few dozen IP cores economically and eliminate the complexity of the system and the specific cables required by P2P systems. The traditional HTTP transfer is to copy data to the client via server, thus the transfer speed is restricted by the bandwidth. Especially in today's network environment, the large amount of clients connects to one server, the bandwidth of servers will be shared, and the bandwidth of clients is difficult to be fully utilized, resulting in low efficiency of overall data transfer. In general data transfer, client A and client B is essential to build a connection to the server, and then data will be transfer through the channel built by the server and data recipient. P2P transfer technology builds the direct channel between client A and client B, shorten the original upload-download "1+1" time to 1; Secondly, "client A-server-client b" is turned to "client A-client b", which does not transit through the server and does not consume the expensive storage space of the server. Figure 1. P2P transfer in one picture Cons & Pros of P2P Transfer P2P technology is popular in many industries such as film and media, Internet TV, telemedicine, it not only provides freedom and facility to data transfer but also integrates all potential Internet resources. In technical expert’s opinion, P2P transfer is a kind of instant technology for quick data moving and sharing, it is beneficial to creating opportunities for enterprises in today’s market environment driven by data. However, with 5G emerging and the continuous development of information technology, P2P transfer is undoubtedly a double-blade sword, so it’s difficult for enterprises to step forward. Cons: - Low cost: save the cost on the server. - Efficiency improved: remove the intermediate procedures and establish simple connections. - High stability: eliminate the server-centered single-point service in the past, form the decentralized P2P transfer organization, which solved the fault problem caused by the central single point. Pros: Network bandwidth resources are consumed in large quantities: The concurrent connection of P2P transfer makes the resources consumed in large quantities, it is easy to cause network congestion and reduce the performance of other applications. Inconvenient management: The P2P transfer is decentralized, the amount of users is huge thus it’s hard to take care of all users. Security risks of data leakage: The widely use of P2P transfer leads to someone use the loopholes in the system to invade user privacy and destroy data. Some criminals even add viruses in the P2P transfer process, which poses a threat to users' computer security. The P2P transfer technology is not strong enough to satisfy enterprises’ various needs, therefore, there must be a breakthrough. According to whether the clients are in the same network environment, the difficulty degree of P2P transfer technology is different. What modern technologies can be used to optimize and how to optimize? Let's continue to explore the principle of P2P technology and try to find a breakthrough. P2P technology upgrading Based on NAT+Raysync The transmission protocol of RaySync has abandoned the use of transmission messages as both byte counts and TCP protocol. With its revolutionary UDP transmission method, Raysync overcomes faults in existing TCP-based file transfer protocols . The transmission speed of FTP/HTTP is hundreds of times higher and is not reduced by the size of the file, transmit distance, or network difficulties. Raysync can offer secure internal and external sharing of data, enabling you to securely upload, download and edit files on a user-friendly interface. Send huge files via mobile devices and web browsers in every location and anywhere. Characteristics RaySync transmission protocol may make full use of a broad network of bandwidths for the fastest transfer of data. It can enable users in the huge data distribution application scenario to finish the big data transfer in the least time. The multi-channel parallel transmission feature of the link is supported by RaySync Transmission Protocol. When a client interfaces between point B and point A, a multiplicity of unrelated data streams can quickly be transferred in Parallel via the multi-parallel channel property. The transfer of these data streams does not require the handshake connection process, which considerably enhances the transmission in real-time. RaySync transmission protocol is UDP-based and may transit over various NAT devices smoothly. Here we divided into two situations for analysis: On the same network Assume that the internal network interface is 1000M, the LAN bandwidth is 10M, and the bandwidth utilization rate is 50%. Client A and Client B are in the same network environment, as shown in the following figure. If the traditional file transfer method is adopted, the A user needs to upload the file to the server first, and then B can download it from the server, there only 10M network bandwidth will be utilized in the whole transfer process. While through point-to-point transfer, A and B can directly establish a connection, file transfer makes full use of the network bandwidth of 1000M, and the transfer efficiency can be improved by 100X. Figure 2. P2P technology on the same network Raysync combined the P2P technology with Raysync ultra-high-speed transfer protocol, the network bandwidth is fully utilized up to 96%. The file transfer process is accelerated, the TB-level big data and massive data transfer have never been easier. Figure 3. P2P technology upgrading Based on NAT+Raysync On the different network Client A and client B are in two different network environments, and they need to try to connect with the target end to judge whether they can penetrate the network to establish communication. The P2P transfer between two clients will be different according to different clients. Several common P2P transfer methods through middleware include Relaying, Connection reversal, UDP hole punching. Through the following characteristic comparison table, we can simply grasp the characteristics and application scenarios of these methods. Table 1. Characteristics and compassion table According to the methods listed above, Raysync P2P transfer will try to connect with the recipient end in priority. If it is failed to connect, it will be connected by reverse connection or UDP punching. If it is still failed to connect, then the server transfers will be adopted. Raysync will automatically select the best transfer mode in the whole process, reduce the network burden and make full use of network resources. Besides, the P2P transfer based on UDP needs to consider the type of NAT, because the penetration ways of different NAT combinations are not consistent, some can penetrate, while some cannot. Figure 4. P2P technology on the different networks Digging deep into NAT penetration technology, Raysync combines more than 10 NAT penetration technologies with Raysyncb ultra-high-speed transfer protocol and simultaneously applies on P2P transfer. In practical application, the penetration effect of these 10 NAT combinations can meet the current P2P transfer needs. Even in the face of a few impenetrable situations, Raysync may still be able to improve the transfer efficiency and find the optimal solution for P2P transfer. A More Universal P2P Transfer through Innovation on Speed and Management Transfer acceleration ensures efficiency improving In the point-to-point transfer, the patented Raysync ultra-high-speed transfer protocol is adopted. This protocol can eliminate the bottleneck at the bottom layer, it is immune to limitation of the traditional network and hardware, fully utilize the network bandwidth, and realize ultra-low latency, high speed, and end-to-end output service, the transfer rate is improved by nearly one hundred times, thus easily achieves the safe, controllable and stable transfer of TB-level large files and massive small files. Figure 5. P2P technology on the different networks about penetration and acceleration Comparison of the point-to-point transfer efficiency Test environment: - Shenzhen-Beijing, network latency 35ms~45ms, packet loss rate 1% - Server: Alibaba cloud Shenzhen, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk - ClientA: Alibaba cloud Shenzhen, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk - ClientB: Alibaba cloud Beijing, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk 2GB Large File Transfer: Raysync VS QQ Test Results: It takes 689 seconds to transfer 2GB files from Shenzhen to Beijing via QQ, with an average transfer speed of 23.77Mbps; While takes only 173 seconds with Raysync point-to-point transfer, the transfer speed is increased to 94.7Mbps, which is 516 seconds shorter than QQ. 84393 Small File Transfers: Raysync File transfer is automatic For team collaboration, Raysync supports automatically receive point-to-point files from your partners. Compared to the traditional P2P transfer method, Raysync saves your time spend on manually file reception. The auto file reception can be realized with one click to enable the “Allow to receive transfer files from partners” button. A data asset is strictly monitored The admin user can monitor every single task in the admin console. Enter Raysync admin console – Point-to-Point transfer, you could view the point-to-point transfer account, IP, task name, receiver ID, country, states, city, total file transmission quantity, and transmission speed. In the meantime, it supports viewing the details of the point-to-point transfer task being transmitted and stopping the operation, and supports one-click viewing and downloading for historical transfer tasks. All files and individuals traceable, each P2P task can be controlled by the admin. The comprehensive upgrade made by Raysync on P2P transfer overcomes the drawbacks of file and user management, enables point-to-point transfer to better meet the enterprise needs, and helps enterprises manage data more efficiently. Bank-level data security Based on the needs of customers in industries such as film and media, IT Internet, Raysync adopts AES-256+TLS encryption technology between client and server to guarantee end-to-end data security. Aiming at the port problem, Raysync only needs to expose one port, which can meet all users' access needs and greatly reduce the risk of firewall port exposure; Hash verification protection is carried out at the transfer message level, file block, and the whole file to ensure the integrity of the transfer content. The optimization made by Raysync on point-to-point transfer, which has outstanding performance in performance, reliability, and security. The upgraded management design meets the needs of modern enterprises. As a one-stop solution provider for large file transfer, Raysync can be used as a tool for enterprises to realize fast file cooperation, and can also be used as an enterprise data management platform to provide data transfer services for industries such as film and media, finance, IT Internet, etc.
File transfer between internal and external networks and multinational organizations is a major problem faced by enterprises in their business development. As we all know, the transfer of large files is very challenging. Some common problems related to the transfer of large files include the following. Time limit When performing digital file transfer, it needs to be completed within a specified time. Failure to do so will result in loss of transferred files. Lack of visibility When users find it difficult to view what happened to their files, the error rate increases. These inefficiencies and delays are more costly than simple errors, because they may hinder the development of business and destroy the achievement of key business at the same time. Both of these situations are not conducive to income generation and enterprise development. Restricted file type The software used by many companies is industry-specific. Sadly, this particularity puts them in the category of restricted file types for file transfers. System compatibility Whether large file transfer software can support a large number of devices from different partners and customers with different functions is onerous and complicated. Generally speaking, most companies do not have the ability to effectively support such large-scale file transfers. Dissatisfaction, poor user experience and data loss are just some of the problems. Data security and compliance Data security and compliance are challenges that arise when using temporary file transfer methods. Due to the inadequacy of these file transfer methods, companies find it difficult to maintain the visibility, security, and control they need. The result is a data breach and huge fines paid to regulators. File size limit One of the challenges of file transfer is the size limit, because some software uploads or shares have file size limits. Even after compression, etc., many large files cannot meet this limitation. Integration with existing solutions Infrastructure components are the key to some companies' integrated ways of managing file transfers. Problems that want to adapt to new protocols, technologies, and business processes may hinder this integration. It even makes file transfers less secure, non-compliant operations, and files out of control. High cost The cost of a large file transfer platform can be high. Email is the preferred medium for many marketers, but it is difficult to find an email program that can accommodate large file transfers. This is why reputable large file transfer software is an inevitable choice for many companies. Finally, in order to contain these problems, Shenzhen Yunyu Technology has been deeply involved in the field of large file transmission for many years, independently developed the Raysync transmission protocol and created the large file transmission-Raysync transmission platform. The Raysync transmission platform can help companies efficiently send and easily manage large files. The platform is easy to use and can be directly integrated with the company's existing systems. All users only need to create an account to complete large file upload, download, and synchronization sharing.

Since the advent of the digital age, companies have begun to realize the importance of accessing more data. The more information available, the better for the organization. Data has always been and will continue to be the king. Correct data entry can provide more information about the challenge and help build better solutions. Companies are gradually realizing that obtaining more data through third-party partnerships can help create better growth opportunities. However, for sharing data between companies, three important factors must be kept in mind: 1.Data sharing must be mutually beneficial to both organizations 2.The benefits of data sharing must outweigh the risks 3.Trust in data sharing remains fuzzy Although this is a no-brain company willing to share data, only if it is mutually beneficial, what people need to take care of, how safe is the transaction? Without proper security measures, data sharing between companies may be at risk. In a centralized data sharing model, this risk increases exponentially as data owners lose control of their valuable assets. Without proper security controls, ensuring compliance is definitely a problem. In order to solve these unique problems in data sharing, companies have to consider newer technologies for data sharing to avoid unauthorized access. Companies interested in adopting modern file sharing and collaboration solutions usually consider two options. The first choice is to stick to the end. Company safety is the most important issue. By making it difficult and time-consuming to share information, this option affects the level of collaboration an organization can perform, thereby minimizing productivity. The second option is to choose to move forward at full speed because the company encourages the sharing of information and promotes collaboration. This strategy allows employees to easily collaborate inside and outside the organization, thereby increasing productivity and revenue. The danger of this choice is that it greatly increases the possibility of loss of sensitive data while also failing to comply with global data protection regulations. However, there is a third option, which neither hinders data loss prevention efforts, but also allows as much collaboration as possible. This choice is called secure data collaboration, and it is becoming an information security strategy in our modern era. What is Secure Data Collaboration? Secure Data Collaboration is sharing data securely and efficiently between two parties. The BAE system has a good definition: secure data collaboration and dissemination is an electronic information sharing capability, in which two or more parties can safely exchange data with each other in an encrypted software environment—for example, for project collaboration or dissemination Sensitive information-while always maintaining control of its data. The key here is that SDC is not "encrypting the data itself", nor is it "preventing collaboration." SDC exchanges data securely in an environment that is already secure and globally adopted . Before every organization in the world accelerates its migration to the cloud in 2020, one might argue that these environments are not that easy to access; how many Global 2000 organizations worldwide deploy and use OneDrive? Fast forward to 2021. In the past year, M365 has been adopted faster than anyone expected. As a result, most organizations have access to these secure cloud containers and are now ready to become modern collaborators. It is in the process of transition to modern collaboration that SDC will overturn traditional information security solutions. The following are three main reasons: Traditional information security solutions are based on the precautionary assumption: locking data or preventing data from leaving the organization is disabling collaboration, not enabling collaboration. This attitude does not apply to modern collaborators who want to increase productivity and provide services to customers. However, SDC is based on the assumption that the organization wants to use three shared data RD parties; they need to help manage access control to secure containers . Secure data collaboration is built from the cloud to the cloud: Information Rights Management and Data Loss Prevention were originally built to support traditional enterprises, mainly operating locally. Modern collaboration requires security solutions built specifically for the cloud from the cloud. Collaboration is constantly changing, and on-premises solutions are not adaptable. SDC needs a solution that assumes changes. Productivity is always more important than security: this has been an ongoing debate since the advent of information security; however, last year it has been proven that organizations will ensure that their employees remain productive at all costs. We believe that those organizations that need to spend another five years to "go digital" will do it within a few weeks, and accepting security controls will play a certain role in catching up. Traditional information security solutions that continue to set barriers to productivity will no longer solve the problem. SDC is focused on truly achieving this balance for its users. Many organizations are struggling to share data internally across departments and externally with partners, suppliers, suppliers, and customers. They use manual methods, such as sending spreadsheets via email or performing batch processes that require extracting, copying, moving, and reloading data. These methods are notorious for lack of stability and security, and most importantly, when the data is ready for consumption, it is often out of date. Secure data sharing is a feature of the Raysync data cloud, which enables organizations to share supervised real-time data without the need to make copies and move data. If you want to know how Raysync provides modern solutions to protect your company data while supporting employee collaboration, please contact us to arrange a demo. The Raysync team will write more articles on secure data collaboration in the coming weeks, and we are happy to share more progress on this topic.
The best file synchronization software allows you to back up your files for access from any device, whether at home, in the office, or on the road. File synchronization solutions are often an integral part of backup software to make it easier to manage and restore data when needed. Nowadays, file synchronization software solutions are delivered through cloud services, making it easier to synchronize, save, and protect data. Although there is a general solution for cloud storage, the advantage of synchronization is that files can be updated in real-time, so you always have the latest copy of what you need. In addition to storing and synchronizing data, most synchronization solutions come with additional tools not only to manage your saved data but also to manage user access and permissions to allow file sharing and collaboration with stored files. This is especially important because many office environments now allow collaborative use of documents, but for security purposes, correct user permissions are required. In addition, enterprise file synchronization also uses very strict security protocols to ensure that data is always protected and reduce the possibility of data leakage and malicious access. In summary, here we show what we believe is the 11 best file synchronization solution currently available. 1. Raysync Raysync is a large file transfer software. Whether it is a PB-level large file or a million-level small file, Raysync can efficiently meet the requirements of enterprise data synchronization transmission and file synchronization transmission, and accelerate the efficient operation of enterprise business. It has excellent data synchronization performance and efficiency, overcomes various limitations of traditional data synchronization tools and file synchronization tools, and performs fast and safe data synchronization through WAN and LAN. Enterprise-level Reliability Raysync can transmit new files on the base of full bandwidth and can satisfy enterprises’ requirements to ensure the integrity of file transmission under any distance and network environment. Mass-scale Synchronization Raysync leverages the architecture to synchronize millions of small files or petabytes-sized files and supports multiple concurrent sessions, clusters, and 10 Gigabit transmission speed. Smart Synchronization Raysync recognizes file update status intelligently to effectively avoid retransmission of the same file, reduce unnecessary synchronization and improve efficiency. Flexible Configuration Raysync supports operations such as one-way and two-way synchronization, timing synchronization, encryption or no encryption, modification time reservation, source files transmission only, synchronous deletion, etc. 2. Microsoft OneDrive Microsoft OneDrive is a popular version of the online Microsoft 365 suite. Although it is worth considering as a standalone product, if you do own Microsoft 365, then it may become an indispensable choice. As a standalone version, OneDrive provides 5GB of storage space for free and provides additional backup options for home and business users. For home users, only a monthly payment can get 100GB of storage space. However, OneDrive only appears when you use OneDrive as part of your Microsoft 365 subscription. Both the personal version and the commercial version provide a very large 1TB storage space and comprehensive applications. This can be used to back up any folders on the computer, regardless of whether they are office-related or not. Files stored in OneDrive can be used on most devices, such as Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS devices. However, please pay attention to your OneDrive settings, because some files are only stored in the cloud by default, not on your device or computer, which may cause problems when working offline. However, in general, OneDrive provides the most generous and extensive file backup and synchronization solution. Whether you are a home office user, a small business user, or running a business, OneDrive provides an excellent daily file synchronization solution for business files. 3. Sync.com As one of the more complete file synchronization solutions, Sync.com, located in Canada, provides three different plans for corporate users. The first tier, Business Pro Teams Standard, provides each user with 1TB of considerable storage space, which can accommodate 2-100 users. All tools used to manage backup and synchronization provide unlimited data transfer. The next level is Business Pro Teams Plus, which is priced per user per month. It is also suitable for 2-100 users, and each user has 4TB of storage space available. There is also a multi-user management panel, which can be transferred in the synchronization account, and centralized billing to cover all users. Business Pro Teams Advanced increases the storage space for backup and synchronization files to 10TB per user and adds live chat support as a feature. All plans come with sharing and collaboration options, 2048-bit RSA, SSL/TLS encryption, version history and recovery, and remote wipe and lock . 4. GoodSync GoodSync is an established company that provides file synchronization and backup software services. The setup is very simple, you only need to install the software, select the target files and folders, and then set up the automatic functions for backup and synchronization. That's it. The simplicity of use hides the fact that this is a powerful solution in several different forms. One is GoodSync servers, which provide backup and synchronization for Windows and Linux servers. The other is the GoodSync file server, which allows the specified files and folders to be backed up and synchronized to the private cloud, and provides various rules and automation options to ensure easy management of everything. No matter which type you choose, there are home and business editions, and the home edition offers a free package with limited features. However, we will focus here on business solutions, which provide many standard features, especially multithreading, block-level data transfer, and local and remote file support. The file server option allows unlimited connections and users. 5. Syncplicity Syncplicity is easy to install on a Mac or PC , and it can back up folders and files of your choice to the cloud. After configuration, it works transparently. The personal version provides free 10GB of storage space on an unlimited number of devices, and 100GB requires a monthly payment. Even this layer is equipped with enterprise-level features such as secure mobile editing and PDF annotations-you can also choose your public cloud storage location , in addition to real-time document version control and backup. The business plan is similar but adds additional features for collaboration and group user control for file sharing. Enterprise plans to provide more advanced features such as AD integration and single sign-on, as well as MDM integration and remote wipe of any user device. The file synchronization and access functions are excellent, you can synchronize any folder, and you can fine-tune the content that can be excluded. However, there is no uniform pricing for this, you need to contact Syncplicity for a quote. 6. Resilio Sync Resilio Sync has an interesting background story: it was spun off from BitTorrent Inc, which means it has peer-to-peer technology as part of its DNA. P2P is a tried-and-tested and trustworthy protocol, especially useful for sending large files quickly. It is one of the very few services compatible with Linux and a large number of network-attached storage solutions . Unlike most of the content we covered here, Resilio Sync is not a cloud-based file synchronization solution. Instead, it relies on the synchronization process of devices connected in peer-to-peer mode. There are free versions and paid products, which can link all your devices, have a one-time sending function, selective synchronization function, and the function of automatically adding folders to all devices. You need to install it on all devices you want to sync. Sync Business will better serve enterprises. This is a subscription service where each user has unlimited devices, file-level deduplication, data reduction, end-to-end encryption, and server support. Resilio Connect is an enterprise-level version of Sync Business, providing WAN optimization and advanced management functions. 7. Google Drive If you are a small business or individual user, as a basic backup, synchronization, and sharing solution, it is difficult to beat Google Drive. Google Drive provides backup and synchronization for individual users, it just does what it says. Copy files from your computer, smartphone, or memory card to the cloud. Find your files on Google Drive on most desktop or mobile devices. All versions of Google Drive, whether it is a personal, professional, or enterprise version, support documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, as well as video and audio conferences. The simplicity of Google Drive is hard to beat. It is easy to use, and the backup and synchronization functions can be used to back up files to PCs and USB drives in the cloud. Where it fails is that it can’t really compete with Microsoft 365’s generous OneDrive storage, let alone Microsoft’s office tools. However, as a simple and easily accessible synchronization solution-if, this is what you need-Google Drive is one of the best options worth considering. Other cloud storage and synchronization software solutions IDrive is another popular backup and synchronized file storage solution, and its basic level provides 5GB for free. There are paid personal editions and commercial editions. The personal edition 5TB storage is cheaper, and there is a discount for the first year. Commercial options of 250GB and above are more expensive, and discounts are also available for the first year. SugarSync provides file and synchronization storage solutions for personal and business users and has built-in additional security protection to protect offline stored files, as well as permission options. Personal plans start from 100GB, while multi-user enterprise accounts start with 2TB storage and can accommodate up to three users. More than a dozen active users need custom quotes. SpiderOak provides many cloud storage options. Although they provide services for home users, they pay more attention to the needs of business users, especially when online collaboration may be required for file usage. A personal plan for the SpiderOak One platform, providing 150GB of storage space. Enterprise users can choose different versions, but enterprise storage requires at least 500 users. Apple iCloud is a service for macOS and iOS users, providing 5GB of online backup for free. You can choose to pay to upgrade to 50GB, 200GB, or 2TB, and provide family sharing options. However, it is strange that Apple does not use its own servers, but uses cloud storage from Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.
There was a time when everyone was used to working in an office or at home-basically in one place. However, with the advent of smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other smart devices, the workplace has transcended boundaries. The only thing that can prevent you from working from almost anywhere now is the inability to access work data. File synchronization is a technology designed to solve this problem by accessing data across multiple systems and platforms. File synchronization refers to the process of updating data files across multiple devices in real-time. More than one person can work on the same file or project in different locations, even if they are miles apart. There are two types of file synchronization processes: one-way and two-way file synchronization. In one-way file synchronization, data files are updated from a single source to multiple target locations and platforms. But no data is stored back to the source. In two-way file synchronization, various locations and platforms work together, and two-way communication is established between each pair in the system. Most people confuse file synchronization and backup, but the two are completely different processes. One of them cannot replace the other, and in most cases, you need to rely on both of them. In file synchronization, the same data is updated across multiple locations and platforms. It allows the team to work on one project without having to be in one place. The concept behind this is that every time a file is saved on a device, it will be uploaded to the server online. Then the system connected to the network constantly checks for file updates and downloads files when newer versions are available. On the other hand, backup is primarily a way for companies to protect data by copying information from one location to another. For example, you can copy the contents of a laptop to an external drive. The backup data will not be accessed by anyone for any collaborative work but is kept in one place so that it can be used to restore the system in the event of any crash. Backup is only to protect data assets and ensure business continuity without any major troubles. File synchronization is indeed the gospel of working on multiple devices at the same time. People can use file synchronization to collaborate completely flexibly without relying on the inconvenient back and forth e-mails. File synchronization and file backup: what is the difference?
