The new Flume data communication protocol takes a unique approach to addressing the effects of latency in long-distance data transmission. In addition to managing the data itself through compression, delta processing and error correction, Flume eliminates the impact of latency by transmitting a continuous stream of data without ever pausing to wait for acknowledgements from the data receiver. Transmission times are accelerated by 5X - 100X and these speedups continue at least linearly with added bandwidth. A second, optional mode of operation, transmits separate pieces of the data to be transmitted to different locations which can then exchange data among themselves to recreate the complete data at all sites.
