Chelmsford, Massachusetts – FilePilot Software Inc., developers of innovative file management solutions, today announced the availability of the latest version of FilePilot Copy, the industry’s fastest file copy software for data migration, disaster recovery, backup, and other file copy projects. An evaluation copy of the software is available free of charge from the company’s web site at www.filepilotsoftware.com .
With this latest release of FilePilot Copy, IT professionals can now control bandwidth utilization during a copy operation with bandwidth throttling and synchronize files and file folders between different locations. FilePilot Copy can also copy the attributes and ACLs of files as part of the copy process and does so with unprecedented speed. To quote one current user of the product, FilePilot Copy copies as fast as other products update.
Richard Knowles, President of FilePilot Software and co-founder said, “This latest release incorporates functionality that was driven by our customers. When developing FilePilot Copy, we looked at the current state of data migration and file copying and the biggest issue we found was that the entire data migration process hasn’t changed in 10 to 15 years. The result is that speed and functionality have not kept pace with storage technology. Doing file copies is not sexy, but it is an absolute requirement. So we felt it was time for some new thinking.”
Since its launch this past August, FilePilot Copy has introduced a number of file copy firsts; including drag and drop copy design for copying files between servers or servers to NAS/SAN; visual and active validation of file systems and space requirements before data is moved; and most importantly – unprecedented speed.
“While speed may seem like a simple thing, in reality it isn’t”, said Charles Beddoe, FilePilot’s Vice-president of Engineering and co-founder. Adding, “We have found the secret sauce and can, for example, not only copy files between systems faster, but condense the time for a final copy cut over, often called an ‘update’ copy, by a factor of ten or more. ” States Beddoe, “This is where we have a distinct advantage, in fact, large scale customer testing has shown that final cut-over copy operations for 60TB of data can be completed in less than 8 hours.”
FilePilot Copy dramatically increases operational efficiency by reducing the time to copy files, allowing IT personnel to focus on initiatives that add value to the business. The product finds speed by managing bandwidth and using the Windows operating system more effectively, as well as by incorporating a whole new way of walking the file tree structure, among other product trade secrets.
