Dynamic resource balancing
One of the unique benefits of Zinstall is the transfer speed during the migration. How is this speed achieved?
Data transfer between two machines depends on many resources. These include CPU and RAM speeds, hard drive read, write and seek times, and the network channel bandwidth itself. To achieve the optimal transfer, these resources must be balanced to optimal correlation.
Another contribution to this complexity is the difference between the source and the target PC. Since we are dealing with machines that may be several years old, they are usually substantially underperforming as compared to the target machine, complicating the resource balance.
Should the CPU/RAM be utilized at full capacity, this will influence the network speed negatively. Likewise, if we try to provide full channel utilization on an underpowered machine, it may lack the computational resources to provide the raw migration data at the same time. Both cases result in an unfavorable impact on the migration performance.
Zinstall employs an advanced balancing algorithm that dynamically determines and tracks the computation/network performance ratios, and balances the available resources. Throughout the migration, the application tracks the CPU, RAM, and network utilization on both the target and the source machines. Whenever one of the resources is slowing down the process, others will be throttled accordingly to resolve the bottleneck and facilitate the smooth flow of the migration.
By balancing the resources, and using smart compression algorithms,
Zinstall may sometimes achieve transfer speeds beyond channel
capacity. We value your time - and do our best to use it
