Transmit data at rates considerably faster than with traditional TCP-based protocols like FTP and SFTP. GoFast channels broadcast data packets between clients, servers, and agents using the lightweight User Datagram Protocol (UDP). This protocol:
- Guarantees file delivery
- Encrypts file transmission
- Compresses files to minimize bandwidth
- Lets users create workflows with GoFast tasks
With GoFast, commands are sent over a secure SSL/TLS control channel to indicate details about the transmission such as the file names and sizes, encryption ciphers and compression settings. Files are then broken into multiple parts and transferred over UDP data channels between the GoFast client and server.
GoFast provides for fast, guaranteed delivery, encryption, and compression and is ideal for streaming content that requires high throughput, such as live video and audio.
