Radically Simple Data Mover That Does More

Enterprises, national labs, supercomputing centers depend on Zettar to move their data at speed and scale with automation, unleashing operational efficiency. We build data mover software solutions with deep tech.  They are radically simple, cloud-ready, and provide API-enabled automation.  


Our solutions are designed with cloud in mind right from the beginning. Use the cloud, including private cloud and hybrid cloud efficiently and economically. They work with compute and storage clouds, on-prem, hybrid, and public.

API-enabled Automation

The unique peer-to-peer architecture enables a dramatically simple RESTful API-enabled approach. Each zx instance has a built-in Web server and any zx instance in a cluster can be the management entry point - operating a cluster made easy.

Data Mobility at Performance

We enable moving data transparently at scale and speed between file and cloud storage, on prem, private, hybrid, and public. All are covered. Movements are always carried out at the maximum performance possible. Workflows are accelerated, always.

All in One

Zettar has all four products, zx-File, zx-Object, zx-Single-Site-Mode, and zx-Append-Streaming integrated into one, namely zx. The seamless product integration simplifies deployment and operation, provides consistent usage, and boosts efficiency. Note that the functionality of the last three high-value, logically separated products must be enabled with appropriate licenses.


zx-File supports any POSIX compliant file services, e.g. XFS, Lustre, NFSv3/4.  It bulk transfers data over digital connections of any speed across any distance.  To the best of our knowledge, it is the world’s only commercial data mover that has transferred actual 1PB production-like data, storage-to-storage, over 5000-miles in 29 hours with a 94% average bandwidth utilization (under a 80Gbps bandwidth cap) with full TLS encryption and checksumming.  It can replicate data sets incrementally, even those with hundreds of millions of small files.

zx-Object supports AWS S3 object storage and true compatibles. It transfers data objects over digital connections of any speed across any distance. It supports the advanced AWS S3 multipart REST APIs with high concurrency resulting in both very high reading and writing performance. Used in conjunction with zx-File and/or zx-SSM, the trio enables you to move data among file and object storage services in numerous combinations with ease.

zx provides highly efficient and rich ways to interact with storage services. It integrates a unique single-site mode (SSM) that enables moving data among different locations, even zx is only running at a single location. For example, exchanging data with an external collaborator who is not (yet) a zx user; interacting with AWS S3 or compatibles directly.

Recent advances in all aspects of computing have made it possible to stream modern machine generated data from multiple sources through various stages of online and near line processing. This results in rich multi-dimensional datasets that can be made accessible for processing using a hybrid cloud. zx-Append-Streaming facilitates such a modern workflow model.


zx is the only deep tech-powered, the most modern scale-out petascale-proven data mover software available in the market.  Its peer-to-peer enabled scale-out architecture, simplicity, robustness, capabilities, and efficiency are proven with production deployments, many world records, and winning of a highest level international competition – the two month long, grueling Supercomputing Asia 2019 Data Mover Challenge.

Simple to Use

Once setup and configured, to users of zx, either via its built-in Web UI or its RESTful APIs, the effort is much less than using typical CLI data mover tools or other competing products owing to zx’s unique peer-to-peer enabled scale-out architecture and its seamless product integration. It transparently supports both file and object storage in a simple, consistent, and efficient manner. Please Request demo and see for yourself how easy it is to use zx. Our live demos show both the intuitive built-in Web UI and API powered automation.

Peer-to-Peer Enabled Scale-Out

zx is one of the only three scale-out data mover software applications (the most modern one) that have been funded by the U.S. DOE Office of Science. Owing to its unique peer-to-peer architecture, running a cluster is as simple as running a single instance - the multiple zx instances are self-organizing and self-healing. Rich run-time statistics and connection graphs are all included. The architecture also provides the highly desirable linear scalability.

Highly Efficient

With zx's seamless product integration, assuming sufficient storage throughput available, a decent CPU model, fully populated CPU memory channels, enough available network bandwidth, and normal file/object sizes, a single data transfer node running zx can comfortably push/pull 70+Gbps or beyond. If two nodes are employed at each end, such a set up not only has the potential to go beyond 100 Gbps but also provides high-availability (HA) at the same time. High-efficiency translates into high ROI.
