UDT (UDP-based Data Transfer Protocol)

UDT is a UDP-based protocol for bulk data transfers over high-speed (1 Gb/s and above) wide-area networks. It was used in the winning entry, “Transporting Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data using SECTOR”. to the Supercomputing'06 Bandwidth Challenge in November 2006, with a sustained transfer rate of 8 Gb/s over a 10 Gb/s network path. UDT has been integrated into newer GridFTP releases.
