EGI Data Transfer allows you to move any type of data files asynchronously from one place to another. The service includes dedicated interfaces to display statistics of ongoing transfers and manage network resources.
Data Transfer is ideal to move large amounts of files or very large files. The Data Transfer service has mechanisms to ensure automatic retry in case of failure
The EGI Data Transfer is based on the FTS3 service which is a low level data movement service, responsible for reliable bulk transfer of files from one site to another while allowing participating sites to control the network resource usage. The software is open source to transfer data reliably, in a robust manner and at large scale between storage systems using protocols such as HTTPS, WebDav, GridFTP and SRM.
FTS3 provides a sophisticated and easy to use web interface for transfer management and monitoring, and a data management software, to delete files efficiently, optimising resource usage by enabling adaptive concurrency, reuse of connections and a smart retry mechanism.
