Warp speed Data Transfer (WDT) is an embeddedable library (and command line tool) aiming to transfer data between 2 systems as fast as possible over multiple TCP paths.
GridFTP was designed to use parallel TCP streams. It was later extended to use UDT but that never became a popular option. There are C libraries for both the client and server side. However it started out as a research project and many white papers were published on it, thus I was asking if you were familiar with those concepts and curious if they helped in this effort at all?
You mentioned that you do not have to traverse NATs which has me more curious about the target for this protocol. At first I was assuming that this was for wide area transfer to general internet users, but now I think it is for local area transfer for internal components. This is a very interesting effort and I would love ot read more about it. Can you point me at anything?
Thanks for the reply!
