Dualog® Drive is more than just a simple file transfer. You can now easily synchronize files or folders from any shore location to an entire fleet or group of vessels, or from any vessel to shore. The system allows for example maintenance systems or other IoT-enabled devices to send status reports to shore-based personnel for review. One client can be set up to receive files or folders from multiple sources, effectively streamlining the process of managing complex reporting environments. Exchange tasks can be initialised, managed and monitored from the Dualog® Cloud Platform. Reporting tools add an extra level of control.
 
 

Efficient use of bandwith

  • Global deduplication optimises bandwidth usage
  • Only changes are sent
  • Pattern recognition across files
  • Compression
  • Resume on transfer interruptions

Bandwidth restrictions will always place a part when you operate on the oceans where satellite is often the only viable option. With Dualog® Drive you can rest assured that files are handled in the most efficient manner. By utilising advanced byte pattern recognition, Dualog® Drive effectively eliminates redundant data to be transferred. We also use state-of-the-art compression to minimise file sizes. The ability to resume transfers is a necessity when working under tough conditions.
 

 

Set up the system in just a few, simple steps 

  • Easy to set up and distribute often used tasks
  • Wizard helps even unexperienced user’s add new tasks
  • Live monitoring
  • Gather insights through simple reports

Dualog® Drive is a breeze to install. Fleet-wide configuration makes it easy to set up and distribute often used tasks. Adding new move, sync or share tasks are easy, fast and straightforward, and wizards helps even unexperienced user’s through the process of setting up data exchange tasks. Administrators can use the live monitoring feature to have instant overview of data transfers. Reporting tools make it easy to gather insights on the total impact of data exchange between ship and shore, or spot abnormalities and other issues that requires attention. 
 

 

Security & encryption you can trust

  • Built-in encryption
  • Authentication of clients ensures data privacy
  • Apply policy templates across the entire fleet
  • Files are stored in a fully redundant tier 3 data centre

Dualog® Drive features a built-in end-to-end encryption that safeguards confidential documents and files from unauthorised access. Industry-level authentication of clients ensures data privacy. Furthermore, admins can create and apply policy templates across entire fleet, ship group, ship and even down to each individual user. Files are stored by Dualog® Cloud in a fully redundant tier 3 data centre with an uptime of 99.9 %*.
 

 

The Dualog® Drive protocol optimizes data traffic by knowing what data already exist on clients and server

 
Dualog® Drive uses a global deduplication method where file patterns are identified and treated as chunks of data, effectively reducing the amount of data to be transferred. When working in low bandwidth conditions, this is a critical feature.
