New Accelerated Encrypted Upload Functionality

New Accelerated Encrypted Upload Functionality

GunTRAC Version Update

Updated code has been released to handle file uploading utilizing the Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration features now available for S3 storage. Some file sizes are significant depending on what was is either uploaded to GunTRAC or what is generated by the logbook engine. In some cases, gigabytes. The act of encrypting and transferring data to S3 services in large file cases causes considerable delays with large A&D transactions, in many cases we are seeing a 300% increase in transfer speed for permanent storage.

Transfer Acceleration takes advantage of Amazon CloudFront’s globally distributed edge locations. As the data arrives at an edge location, data is routed to Amazon S3 over an optimized network path.

In addition, we have implemented a redundant process for uploading to backup edges from the primary cluster. It is our intention to accelerate the file upload process as well as provide a more robust and reliable system.
