Segmented File Transfer

Segmented File Transfer

Segmented file-transfer (also known as multisource file-transfer or swarming file-transfer) is the coordinated transmission of a computer file sourced from multiple servers to a single destination. It can be applied as well when downloading the same file from the same server in various parts, like some download managers do. A computer program downloads (retrieves) different portions of the file from various sources simultaneously, and assembles the file on the destination computer data storage device.

Famous quotes containing the words file and/or transfer:

    A common and natural result of an undue respect for law is, that you may see a file of soldiers, colonel, captain, corporal, privates, powder-monkeys, and all, marching in admirable order over hill and dale to the wars, against their wills, ay, against their common sense and consciences, which makes it very steep marching indeed, and produces a palpitation of the heart.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I have proceeded ... to prevent the lapse from ... the point of blending between wakefulness and sleep.... Not ... that I can render the point more than a point—but that I can startle myself ... into wakefulness—and thus transfer the point ... into the realm of Memory—convey its impressions,... to a situation where ... I can survey them with the eye of analysis.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
