Transfer between Devices
As the Internet of Things (IoT) era is coming, all embedded devices such as home appliances, mobile devices and wearable computers, etc. can connect to the internet and process data. INNORIX IoT enables these embedded devices to exchange files with servers in the fastest and most perfect way.
Rapidly Increasing Amount of Devices and Files
High-definition video cameras and display devices as well as various unmanned devices are being frequently launched with high performance processors and high speed wireless communication capacity. In the past, these were just independent unmanned devices however recently these devices are able to connect to the internet, exchange files back and forth with each other and provide entirely new features.
However, before we get the opportunity to take advantage of innovation, file transfer issues between unmanned devices and servers have been the biggest challenge due to low-speed, frequent transfer failure and high cost. INNORIX IoT clearly resolves these file transfer issues of unmanned devices.
Devices that produce a lot of Files Daily
Even if it is not the IoT era, a lot of files have been accumulated and created daily in the process of financial and retail transactions. A lot of unmanned devices such as production facilities and security systems in various industries also experience these issues. However since there is no proper solution to exchange these files, this issue is now recognized as an obscure problem.
Temporary transfer methods cause low-speeds, unstable transfers, security issues and high operating expenses. High operating expenses are big concern of management. As a result, they are wholly inadequate to meet the transfer demand that has been increasing. As a specialized file transfer product for unmanned devices, INNORIX IoT clearly resolves these issues. INNORIX IoT improves management convenience and significantly reduces operating expenses, enabling organizations to be wholly prepared to meet the transfer demand.
Servers that Must Exchange Files with Many Devices
Devices such as set-top boxes, digital billboards and traffic systems need to communicate and exchange files with central servers. However, exchanging files with distributed devices is impossible without a specialized solution. Temporary methods cannot handle a variety of exceptions while transferring in the live operating environment, making organizations eventually reduce and limit their transfer throughput.
INNORIX IoT is designed to automatically respond to and process various file transfer issues as well as completing transfers. It is possible to completely eliminate transfer uncertainty and significantly reduce operating expenses. Featuring two-way transfer, servers can transfer files to distributed devices by the push method and these devices can also pull files from the servers using only minimal traffic, making it the most efficient transfer way.
File Transfers between Servers
INNORIX IoT is specialized for file transfers between servers; it can transfer ultra large-sized and mass files between servers in the fastest way. INNORIX IoT transfers files even in unstable network conditions, high server loads, etc. in the most reliable way and resolves all kinds of troublesome transfer problems between servers.
Urgent Need to Improve File Transfers
All companies have many servers. In these servers, a lot of files that PCs cannot process are constantly integrated and large-sized system and log files are created. However, with existing alternatives, they have never assured a perfect transfer and take a long time when transferring large files between servers. In order to work smoothly, more files have to be transferred between more servers. However, for companies that have not prepared for this situation, this issue still remains as an irresolvable mission.
File Transfers are faced with Limitations
The mission to transfer only 10,000 files is never easy because there is no appropriate solution to transfer files between servers. However, in business environments, more than millions of files are being integrated, stored and created in servers every day.
Response delays due to transient server load lead to transfer failure. Additionally a network's natural errors and losses exacerbate these problems. As more amounts of files are transferred more often and the size of files is larger, more files will be lost or altered while transferring. Then these transfers will fail.
At present, the only transfer alternatives are FTP or the system synchronization command. Due to the inefficiency and instability of these alternatives, it is a better choice for companies to move physical data storage devices (HDD and USB, etc.) through logistics services. In order to improve these situations, if companies depend on an engineers' experience and force additional efforts and sacrifices from engineers, it does not fit in with the effectiveness that companies want.
Limitations of System Commands
Current business environments are very different from when system commands (sync or copy) were developed. However, companies that do not have an alternative depend on system commands. In order to utilize system commands, engineers have to search for appropriate instructions on the internet and apply the methods and then verify the results. If some problems occur, engineers have to resolve the problems themselves. Engineers who have experienced this situation, they will remember the anxiety and inconvenience.
Despite all the engineers' efforts, system commands can utilize only a small part of server performance and network bandwidth. Due to the low-speeds, the commands cause only disappointment. Additionally, when the number of files increases, a drastic speed reduction is inevitable.
Limitations of FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
Due to the name "FTP (File Transfer Protocol)", it probably is used often for transferring files. The way of using FTP is quite ridiculous, engineers install FTP server software in one of two servers and connect to the other server and execute FTP commands, and they then connect to the first server again and check all transfer results one by one. Although security issues seem to resolve themselves using SFTP, its speed is much slower than FTP. Moreover SFTP and FTP still cause many security problems because both have lax user authentication and require all servers to open additional ports.
Although the inconvenient use and management of FTP is very similar to system commands, there is no hot folder feature that can detect new folders and files thus, engineers have to do repetitive tasks and spend too much time on the same file transfer mission. Additionally, it cannot assure a perfect transfer and transfers only at low-speeds.
Synchronization and Backup Solutions
Despite the high costs, companies are using synchronization and backup solutions for some important purposes due to the importance and convenience of synchronization and backup. Inconvenience and the anxiety caused by system commands can be resolved with these solutions, intricate and complicated configuration options are new difficulties.
These classical concept solutions were developed a long time ago and new options were added continuously. It is the reason why they are very complicated to use. Additionally, they concentrated only on synchronization and backup functions, producing slower file transfer speeds than system commands and FTP. As a result, these solutions cannot deal with current companies' environments that need to transfer large and mass files between servers.
Physical Storage Movement
In order to transfer files between servers, system engineers have to choose traditional methods and they have to accept inconvenience because there is no solution. Although system engineers overcome all kinds of transfer problems with their experience and trial and error, the low-speeds make engineers frustrated.
In most cases, moving physical storage is faster than spending more time and effort, especially if it is a long distance transfer. For this reason, in order to avoid complex problems, almost all companies move physical data storage (HDD and USB, etc.) between domestic and international borders through logistics services. Even if low-speeds and high costs are ignored, it is a very dangerous method and challenges the security enhancement effort of companies, putting important files at risk of serious security and loss.
Server Additions and Their Complexity Issues
In the live working environment, files have to be transferred between 2 to more than a dozen of servers. This mission gives engineers a lot of stress and wastes companies' time and cost. Although, file transfer issues between servers are dealt with by experience and patience of the engineers once or twice, there is a limitation that they cannot be flexible and overcome new exceptions that will happen in future.
Improves Awareness about File Transfers
In order to transfer files between servers using traditional methods, a lot of prerequisites are needed. However, these methods transfer files at low-speeds and produce only disappointing results in comparison to the preparation time and effort. As a result, companies plan to transfer files between servers only in special situations. INNORIX IoT fundamentally improves this awareness about transferring files between servers.
With INNORIX IoT, companies can easily plan to transfer more files between more servers regardless of existing limitations whenever needed. At the same time, system engineers and administrators can entrust the time-consuming and troublesome mission to INNORIX IoT. Featuring the file transfer status monitor of INNORIX IoT, companies have the opportunity to experience the most advanced innovation to improve business efficiency.
Transfer between Virtual OSes
Today, with virtualization technology, companies are instantly creating and using new virtual OSes all the time regardless of the location of physical servers and places. INNORIX IoT enables a few administrators to easily command file transfers between more than hundreds of virtual OSes and to easily monitor these file transfer statuses through various devices such as PCs, smartphones, tablets, etc.
Unprecedented Amount of Virtual Environments
Virtualization is innovatively converting static OS concepts to dynamic OS concepts. As systems are integrated with virtualization, the need for physical hardware has significantly decreased. As a result, spaces and costs are being reduced and business efficiency is being maximized. Many companies fully understand these advantages and have actively introduced virtualization. Thus, an unprecedented amount of virtual environments is increasing.
Virtualization Work Starts from File Transfers
Although with virtualization technology companies can easily create more than hundreds of virtual OSes a day, in order to start work, administrators need to transfer and install working software and files first. In this situation, INNORIX IoT features the fastest and most convenient file transfers between virtual OSes. As an essential product in the virtualization era, INNORIX IoT maximizes the advantages of virtualization.
Resolves FTP problems
Development teams, who are doing projects in virtual OS environments, file transfer issues are a big headache. In order to apply developed results, developers have to transfer result files to all virtual OSes. However, when the result files are updated, they have to connect to all virtual OSes using FTP. Then they have to upload the result files and then check all files' dates to make sure. Even if cumbersome and repetitive work processes are ignored, if there are many virtual OSes and frequent updates, human errors will occur in process of transferring and completion times will be longer. Furthermore, FTP always has additional problems such as unstable transfers, low-speeds, critical security issues, etc.
As a specialized file transfer product for virtual OSes, INNORIX IoT clearly resolves all these issues. INNORIX IoT features convenient file transfer control and highly reliable flawless transfers, enabling the development team to concentrate more on their development and to utilize virtualization efficiently.
Resolves Shell Script problems
In order to overcome cumbersome and repetitive update processes, some system engineers are using shell script. For example, after files are transferred to server no.1, these files will be automatically transferred to other servers. Due to various exceptions while transferring, transfer failure and file loss can occur anytime. Whenever transfer failure occurs, developers have to improve their shell script. Even if the developers apply the shell script files to all virtual OSes and check everything to make sure, the new script cannot respond to new exceptions. As a result, even the developers cannot trust their shell script.
INNORIX IoT features Advanced Transfer Stabilization Technology that is designed to respond automatically to a variety of exceptions and to assure a perfect transfer. As a result, while transferring, various exceptions such as response delays by transient loads, inherent and expected file alterations between different OSes, etc. can be completely handled by INNORIX IoT without any administrator intervention. INNORIX IoT fundamentally improves unstable and inconvenient transfers of shell scripts, enabling companies to have flexibility, immediacy and efficiency when it comes to the purpose of virtualization.
Integrates All Files Virtual OSes Have Created
It is not easy to integrate all files that many virtual OSes are creating. Without arduous processes such as connecting to every virtual OS, transferring and checking all files, INNORIX IoT integrates all files from all virtual OSes to central servers in the fastest and most reliable way according to prescribed methods.
Transfer Files between Different Virtualization Systems
There are various virtualization systems in the market. Due to the differentiated advantages of each virtualization system, companies are using various systems depending upon their needs. Bundled file transfer features in virtualization systems have a fundamental problem that they cannot support the transfer of files between different virtualization systems. Apart from these problems, there are other problems such as inconvenience of use and low-speeds, etc.
Innorix is not a virtualization system provider and as a specialized File Transfer Company, it supports all kinds of virtualization systems to transfer files without any limitations.
High-speed File Transfer
Other file transfer methods are limited in the speed due to: the geographical distance between the origin and destination, delay in the response of the standard protocol and inefficient data exchange. Although companies have high-performance IT resources, due to non-hardware limitations, they cannot fully utilize these resources such as high-performance mass storage/server, high-capacity network equipment and high-bandwidth networks.
Featuring INNORIX IoT software-based transfer technology, these limitations can be easily overcome without network bandwidth expansion. This innovative technology can transfer all kinds of files at high-speeds and also maximize utilization efficiency of the company's IT resources.
Furthermore, additional features such as optimizing packets, intelligent compression and transferring mass files at high-speeds and various file transfer features enable INNORIX IoT to transfer files more quickly, even in unexpected environments that have not been predetermined.
High-speed File Transfers for devices
In existing standard transfer methods, UDP transfer loses a lot of data while transferring so it unnecessarily uses too much bandwidth and requires opening many ports, resulting in threatened security. TCP transfer is very slow due to the inefficient communication methods. INNORIX IoT drastically improves these TCP low-speed problems and provides high-speed file transfer rates that are up to 30 times faster even in situations like low-bandwidth, high-latency, high-loss and other hostile environments.
Expands Limited Transfer Capacity
File transfer speeds in existing transfer methods are greatly affected by the devices, OSes, types of software, network conditions, overload of servers and etc. In order for the existing maximum speed to be exceeded, INNORIX IoT expands transfer capacity at the software level, making file transfer speed the fastest in any environment.
Optimizes Transfers by Interval
INNORIX IoT analyzes various transfer environments (file sizes, transfer distances and network conditions, etc.) and automatically optimizes transfers. According to the transfer environment, INNORIX IoT determines the most optimal data size and data arrangement, as well as exchanges data back and forth with the server in each every environment, as result of these actions, INNORIX IoT can transfer files at the fastest speed in any transfer environment.
Most Ideal Transfer Method
Other transfer methods can only utilize minimal capacity so bandwidth is wasted, as a result file transfers are always slower and take a longer time. In addition, they cause various transfer problems such as frequent transfer failure, etc. INNORIX IoT can utilize optimal capacity, enabling file transfers to be quickly completed and the network to be cleaned up much faster. INNORIX IoT fundamentally resolves the issue of having too many files remaining in the network for a long period of time. Therefore, more files can be exchanged in the same network without changing any IT infrastructure.
Large and mass file transfers
The file size and number of files are continuously increasing in current business environments. However, files are not being exchanged when it is needed because most companies still use previous temporary methods and to transfer files.
INNORIX IoT is optimized to transfer large files. If users and administrators chooses any files (document and large files, folders, etc.), INNORIX IoT will transfer anything to anywhere in the fastest and most convenient way without any limitations. It also clearly eliminates repetitive efforts and the time wasted that users put in to the transfer of large files, making it possible for the productivity of the whole organization to be dramatically improved.
Large File Transfer
Due to all different kinds of technical difficulties, almost all transfer methods limit file sizes. INNORIX IoT is the only way for companies to transfer files of all sizes from small size to large-size 100GByte as well as very large-size more than 10TByte without any limitations between devices in a single process.
Overcome Various Transfer Limits
INNORIX IoT changed HTTPS that is being used in all web-based business systems to RHTTP (Reliable HTTP) which is a proprietary technology that INNORIX developed so that INNORIX IoT can transfer files in any network environment without any security threats. INNORIX IoT is the only way in the industry to transfer large and mass files in all OSes such as Windows, Mac, Linux, UNIX and Embedded OS, etc.
Speed, accuracy and perfection are important requirements in all enterprise business environments. But in the current business system, file transfer methods between web browsers and servers are imperfect. As a result, these methods cannot perfectly meet the needs of companies. In the current environment, after a file transfer begins, all users can do is sit around and pray for the file to be completely transferred.
Generally, in typical business environments, when a file transfer is interrupted by unstable network conditions, server load or other various reasons, the user has no choice but to start the transfer again from the beginning. When a transfer has failed after many repeated tries, the user has to start from the beginning or try to seek other alternatives. The user has no choice but to be tolerant and accept inconveniences.
INNORIX IoT fundamentally resolves all of these incomplete and inconvenient issues. While transferring, INNORIX IoT responds automatically to a variety of exceptions that occur and assures a perfect transfer. Moreover, INNORIX IoT provides security and integrity. INNORIX IoT can perfectly meet the mission-critical needs of companies that are required in business environments.
Unstable Issues in Existing Environment
Situations, in which file transfers fail, occur countlessly within a day and can sometimes happen repeatedly to the same devices. Although the above situation has not taken place, current file transfer methods have never assured a perfect transfer. Various security policies, network environments, server/device types and OSes have applied more pressure to these unstable situations.
Built-in Scenarios to Combat Obstacles
When carrying out a perfect file transfer mission, if system engineers only rely on traditional methods, they have to use all kinds of server technologies and detailed monitors. Even if they find the causes of failure, it is very difficult to devise fundamental solutions that can respond to a variety of causes. It is also not easy to find a proper solution in general situations, such as transient network disconnections by unstable network conditions or response delay of servers.
INNORIX IoT has built-in scenarios that automatically respond to a variety of situations while transferring. After the transfer is started, even if problems occur, INNORIX IoT automatically analyzes all situations and it completes the file transfer on its own. Unless the network has been completely disconnected between client and servers, or unless the servers have not been recovered, INNORIX IoT automatically completes transfers without any user and administrator interventions.
Flawless Lossless Transfer
In all business environments, Flawless Lossless Transfer is a required feature that enables every single file to be transferred without any file loss. However, in existing transfer methods, lossless transfer is not taken into account, as a result, as more files are transferred, more files are lost.
Most engineers do not want to accept this fact about file loss but it is an ongoing inherent problem in the live operating environment. When only a few files fail to transfer among the files being transferred, companies have to invest unthinkable time and costs to find the one failed file. Even if the transfer is restarted from scratch, unstable situations will still remain and the same situations can happen.
Devices and servers cannot respond to all requests and the loss of files occurs often due to various environmental constraints. With flawless transfer structure, INNORIX IoT can resolve these problems so that hundreds of thousands of files can be transferred without any file loss or additional delays.
Double Integrity Verification
File alterations occur due to malicious attacks or inserting malignant codes into files while transferring. In order to prevent them, the INNORIX IoT verifies the integrity of the files twice (each block of a file and then the whole file again).
Even if an altered part of a file is detected, only the altered part will be automatically retransferred so that more accurate and reliable transfers occur. This guarantees safety and convenience.
File Transfer Test Center
As a file transfer specialized company, INNORIX operates file transfer test centers for continuous monitoring and improvement of the quality of file transfers. INNORIX conducts tests in all network environments and all OSes in major cities of North America, Europe and Asia around the clock, 365 days a year.
Secure File Transfer is Becoming More Important
Important information that can affect businesses and organizations is in files. All kind of organizations are exchanging files both in-house and externally with a vast range of organizations. While transferring files, malicious alterations and stealing of files can happen. It is the reality that many organizations do not even know that files are being stolen.
Organizations face difficulties when estimating the scale of damage when security breaches occur. Although they can identify a leak, these files which include pertinent information from financial institutions or businesses can be difficult for an organization to assess. Security experts recognize and emphasize the impact that this can have on businesses thus reinforcing the importance of secure file transfers.
Today, investment in security systems for organizations is at an all-time high. To ensure the best security, companies are pouring both money and manpower into security solutions. However, during this process; the security of file transfers has not kept pace with other security measures. This creates a potential security threat to companies on a daily basis.
Changing Purposes and Methods of Security Threats
Recently, there has been a definite change in the security threats that have been attacking organizations. In the past, threats such as DDoS have directly affected service operations. Recently, there is only a trace of evidence that files are stolen but the threats do not negatively affect the service operation. The threats have been producing many questions: 1) Why did they target the service? 2) What is their purpose, for political or commercial reasons? 3) What is the country of origin?
We know for sure that former attacks led by black hat hackers crippled only the service operations. These people continuously have collected important information and organized with groups who have malicious intentions towards organizations and bureaucracies, we do not know when they will use the information and what their purpose is. Hence, many organizations are concerned about the secondary damages.
Relatively Weak File Transfers
All different kinds of security solutions have already been introduced and have been used to protect against 1) direct attacks 2) detect and treat malignant codes and viruses 3) protect document and database, etc. Except the file transfer area, IT security has been continuously strengthening. Thus, more security threats are present because the file transfer area can be exploited easier than other IT areas.
Transfer Business Files over Wireless Networks
Many people use laptops and wireless networks in order to work, however in-house security can never protect file transfers. Although wireless networks have security issues when executing file transfers, wired networks experience the same threats. In addition, if companies exchange files daily, they definitely need file transfer security solutions.
Increasing Security Threat Situations
Security attacks have grown more sophisticated over time. Year by year the number and scale of attacks have been increasing. Attack methods are also more intelligent with the improvement of security solutions. Recently due to organized domestic attacks as well as attacks from emerging countries, whole threat situations have been rapidly increasing.

Advanced Encryptions for All Files
Before starting to transfer files, INNORIX IoT applies advanced encryption algorithms to all files. The encryption ensures that intact files are maintained from the devices to the other devices. INNORIX IoT protects all file transfer processes and it also protects from server leakage, enabling all processes to be perfectly protected.
High-speed Large File Encryption and Decryption
Unlike small data, in order for large sized files to be en/decrypted, it takes a considerable amount of time. As a result, users waiting time will depend upon to the size of the file. When the waiting time increases, business efficiency decreases. In order to resolve this problem, INNORIX IoT features high-speed en/decryption that is up to 20 times faster than existing methods. Although the speed is faster, the triple layered encryption protects all files and is much more secure than any other methods.
