Processing Across A Network

TraceFinder can store batches on a remote mapped drive on a companies network.

One issue that may arise is latency/slowness of the network itself. Remeber the processing occurs on the local PC, so files and results have to read and written to disk by passing through the network.

If the storage disk is very far away or the network has heavy traffic, processing will slow down.

A remendy of this is to locate the storage server within the building of the laboratory or have a dedicated line.

Also TraceFinder 2.0 and above can be installed in a Cloud configuration where the processing and storage are on a remote server, with multiple instances capable of being hosted. This allows the user to see via a browser the application and process and review results without the latency issue.
