Data networking/data transfer tools

  • Data Networking/Data Transfer Tools
  • Data networking tools refer to tools and services that facilitate the ability of two or more computers to communicate together and to share data with each other. Data transfer tools refer to tools and services that manage or facilitate the transmission of data from one computer or device to another. For example, grid computing is a form of networking that harnesses the processing cycles of all computers connected in a network to solve problems that are too large for any one computer. In the Earth sciences, these tools facilitate the networking of large volumes of satellite data or climate model output data.
