About Zettar

Zettar Inc. delivers a GA-grade, scale-out, petascale-proven, self-organizing, self-healing, self-orchestrating, and self-syncing hyperscale data distribution software solution capable of multi-100+Gbps. Modern IT is driven by the four giants: storage, computing, networking, and hyperscale data distribution. Zettar aims to be at the heart of the 4th giant.

Unlike all other commercial data transfer software, all of which belong to the legacy (decade+ old) Managed File Transfer (MFT) category, Zettar zx has a ground breaking design and establishes the brand new "hyperscale data distribution" category for modern digital businesses. Zettar is a US National Science Foundation (NSF) funded startup in Palo Alto, California.

Zettar has deployed its solution at a well-known research university, a US DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) project, a hyperscale Web property, and more. Many use cases involve the moving of multiple petabytes of data over distance.

Zettar Moves Petabyte Datasets at Unprecedented Speed via ESnet

Each end only employs a modest two-node cluster consisting of two inexpensive 1U commodity servers with 4x10Gbps unbonded Ethernet ports (thus 2 x 4 x10Gbps = 80Gbps - the bandwidth cap)

Zettar zx generated 1/3 plus of ESNet traffic
