Frequently Asked Questions


SPIRAL-BOX offers a dual approach to lossless data compression: The cloud-based API on AWS efficiently compresses data, reducing storage and transfer costs by up to 99%. For decompression, SPIRAL-BOX is required, allowing offline access to original data without internet. Alternatively, the SPIRAL-BOX standalone solution handles both compression and decompression in-house using built-in GPUs, eliminating the need for the cloud API and internet connectivity. This makes SPIRAL-BOX adaptable for small-scale environments with standard NAS storage and minimal infrastructure, yet capable of scaling up and integrating with cloud services for larger workflows. SPIRAL-BOX ensures efficient and cost-effective workflow management, whether operating locally or in the cloud.

Data security is paramount at CENTRAL SPIRAL. SPIRAL-BOX incorporates stringent encryption protocols to safeguard your data during both transfer and storage. The combination of these robust security measures and our lossless compression technology guarantees the integrity and confidentiality of your data, offering you and your stakeholders peace of mind.


Why is High-Speed Data Transfer Essential?

High-speed data transfer is crucial for several reasons, significantly affecting operational efficiency, cost savings, and the agility of business processes:

  • Immediate Access for Enhanced Collaboration: Fast data transfer enables instant access to large datasets, facilitating real-time collaboration and seamless global workflows. This not only leverages specialized skills across different geographies but also reduces labor costs and eliminates unnecessary wait times.
  • Boosted Productivity and Satisfaction: The capability to quickly move substantial files is indispensable for maintaining smooth internal and external collaborations. This efficiency leads to improved productivity, heightened satisfaction among partners and customers, and allows teams to focus on their core tasks rather than the logistics of data movement.
  • Network Scalability and Flexibility: Rapid data transfer speeds are key to expanding network capabilities without the need for significant capital investments or extensive setup times. This scalability ensures cost-effective and efficient operations across the board.
  • Reduced Costs in Data Management: High-speed data transfers enable more cost-effective data storage and backup strategies by allowing for on-demand, geographically redundant storage solutions, thus reducing the need for expensive, continuous backup infrastructures.
  • Streamlined High-Resolution Data Transfers: For high-resolution content, fast transfer speeds are essential to efficiently move large files, dramatically cutting down on storage and network costs by up to 99%.

Illustration with SPIRAL-BOX: Our compression technology greatly accelerates the transfer of 10 TB of data. Instead of requiring 5.67 days on AWS, it can now be completed in a matter of seconds, thanks to SPIRAL-BOX high-speed data transfer capabilities. Furthermore, by utilizing the high-performance L40S GPU for decompression, the restoration of the 10 TB of data can be accomplished in approximately 26 seconds, thanks to its impressive operating speed of 391.48 GB/s
