Users of the GTMaritime's GTReplicate data replication solution for ships can now make use of SharePoint functionality, following the roll-out of further product enhancements to improve ship-to-shore communications and fleet wide data management.

GTMaritime sees this as a first step in providing full cloud storage integration, giving customers with connections where and when they need access to stored data. The new feature allows users to seamlessly integrate existing operational processes and synchronise data between SharePoint and vessels using GTReplicate, and upload data directly to SharePoint. 

Cloud storage integration within GTReplicate removes the time lags that can occur when IT departments alone are responsible for file transfers. Instead, remote employees can send and receive data to and from vessels wherever they are, without needing support to transfer files on their behalf.

Mike McNally, Global Commercial Director, GTMaritime, said: “Throughout 2021 we have seen an increase in demand for GTReplicate, which has coincided with more people working remotely and the need to make data transfers more efficient and secure. Our new Cloud Bridge feature provides users such as fleet managers and superintendents with greater autonomy, control and access to vessel data. Delivered using our FastNet data transfer platform which has been specifically designed to optimise and prioritise data streams between ship and shore, GTReplicate customers benefit from the enhanced security functions and efficiency provided by FastNet. Benefits include break point recovery to handle interruptions in connectivity, bandwidth throttling to enhance user experience, file compression to reduce bandwidth use, and delta transfers to update files with only the changes in data automatically where required. As an integral part of GTReplicate going forward, these features will also apply to SharePoint.”

GTReplicate is a data replication solution which allows IT managers to configure, monitor and execute simultaneous file transfer tasks from a central location. Its use is claimed to reduce time and IT administration requirements which can, in turn, reduce costs for the user and ensure greater levels of regulatory compliance.
