Techniques for file Synchronisation: A Survey

Santosh Kumar Majhi, Gyanaranjan Shial


We are inhabiting in the information age.Large amount of data of the order of Terabytes, Exa- bytes and Zettabytes are of contents are transported from one gimmick to another.The bad news is that the network bandwidth provided by internet providers is determined.It will take long time to remove all files among different computer organization. The immediate solution is to synchronize the files in a better way in the clusters of a computer system which will consume less bandwidth and will give faster file synchronization operation. The main problem of file synchronization is to transfer media files in a bandwidth efficient manner. Apart from this file need to be transferred in small time, so that the client should not wait for file transfer to happen. There is a very wide research on this topic in Rsync [1][7][3]. For this we need to develop some synchronization technique between institutional hubs, so that files can be transferred from any remote location to the institutional hubs in less time and in a bandwidth efficient manner. And simultaneously the files need to be transmitted to the student tablets with all the required privilege. After all, the aim of the project is to transfer the updated content to the student tablets and corresponding institutional hubs and deliver content like quiz materials, video lectures, class notes, application software along with collecting student response with less effort and in less time
