Data Expedition and Primeur have signed a new technology partnership which will see technology shared with the Spazio FASTransfer.

Data Expedition is a developer of high-performance data transfer software, while Italy-based Primeur is a provider of managed file transfer, traceability, control and end-to-end security. Primeur said that it will use Data Expedition's patented MTP/IP(TM) technology for Spazio FASTransfer, a component of its Spazio Enterprise MFT/S secure managed file transfer solution, designed for speeding up the transfer of large files over long distances.

Seth Noble, president of Data Expedition, said: “We are pleased to be working with Primeur to bring integrated high-performance networking to the managed file transfer market. By combining our strengths, we are uniquely able to address the challenges of companies for whom large scale, real-time content exchange is of strategic importance.

"The MFT market is a natural fit for our technology and we look forward to working with partners like Primeur to bring our high-performance transport solutions to additional verticals and regions."

Edoardo Musso, CEO and president of Primeur, said: “The alliance with Data Expedition is part of a strategy of agreements with international partners in order to enrich the Primeur family of solutions with new added value functionality. By exploiting the innovative technology from Data Expedition, our Spazio FASTransfer product is well positioned for a constantly growing market such as that of digital content."

Primeur said that because of Data Expedition's proprietary MTP/IP technology, it can now guarantee high performance and reliability even when network conditions are challenging, as it can transfer files at a speed up to seven times faster than standard FTP on WANs, with tolerance for packet loss and network latency up to ten and 40 times greater than FTP respectively.
