Abstract / Description of output

This paper presents a new data synchronizing transfer tool called FAST (Flexible Automated Synchronization Transfer) which allows facilities for reliably transferring multi-channel data and metadata periodically from rock physics experiments to a repository and a database located in a remote machine. FAST is compatible with all operating systems, and allows for different types of transfer operations by selecting a different transfer protocol. FAST is very easy to set up and requires little oversight during operation. It copes automatically with interruptions to local operations and communications.
