Accelerating Open Data Access Archive at PSI

The primary goal was to offer the data downloadable from downloadable via the SCI-ED network, employing the Hercules file transfer system. This would lead to higher-performance downloads for these large-scale data sets. Before, the downloads over the 10 Gbit/s link were handled by the wget tool. The new implementation based on ScionFTP achieved speeds of around 8.7 Gbit/s and an overall speedup factor of 2.53x.
