The Bandwidth Calculator

Have you ever been in a situation where you have had to move a large amount of data from one place to another but was not sure how long it would take? Maybe you just want to backup your exciting data and want to plan so things go as smoothly as possible. Thankfully, now there is an app for that. The Bandwidth Calculator is a calculator and data solver for iPad that calculates the amount of time it takes to move data from one place to another given a set of restrictions (size of your pipe, …). It can solve your data problems so you can spend more time figuring out more important things.

The Bandwidth Calculator is great for working out various scenarios to see what your options are. You can easily select pipe size, define the amount of data your want to transfer, your compression ratio, and your PL efficiency. Obviously, the higher your compression ratio, the sooner your data will get transferred. Considering that reaching 100% efficiency is not always possible, you may not be able to get the most out of your resources. Thanks to this app, you can account for all that.

The calculator is easy to use and fast. The solver feature is perhaps even more handy. It can show you the size of data pipe you need to transfer your file in a certain amount of time. Let’s say you want to transfer 99 TB of data over 3 days. The app not only shows you the minimum pipe size to get the job done, it suggests which types of connections can actually handle that load.

The Bandwidth Calculator is a simple calculator that does what it promises and saves you time in the process. Whether you are interested in finding the right way to transfer your files at a specific speed or just want to calculate how much it takes to do the job given your resources, The Bandwidth Calculator has you covered. A wonderful tool for network admins and disaster recovery professionals.
