Limitations of the TCP/IP protocol make it very difficult for a single application to saturate a network connection.
But S3 Browser Pro allows you to upload and download your files using network connection at the full speed!
How it works for large number of small files:
Pro VersionPro version allows you to upload and download multiple files at the same time
Multiple files are uploading/download at the same time. Each TCP connection is working at the full speed. In sum you are getting the speed you're paying for!Screenshof from NetLimiter that shows how network connection is used by S3 Browser Pro
Free VersionFree version is limited up to the 2 simultaneous uploads
Only two files are uploading or downloading simultaneously. Free version allows up to the 2 concurrent uploads or downloads. For example you are paying for 2Mb uploading speed, but in fact each connection is limited by the protocol, let's say up to the 256 Kb. In this case you are using only 512 Kb of 2048 allowed.Screenshof from NetLimiter that shows how network connection is used by S3 Browser Freeware
How it works for large files:
Recently, Amazon S3 introduced a new multipart upload feature.
You can now break your large files into parts and upload a number of parts in parallel. If the upload of a part fails, you can simply restart it. You can improve your overall upload speed by taking advantage of parallelism.
Multipart upload feature is enabled by default in S3 Browser Free and Pro. All files larger than 5 Mb will be uploaded via multiple parts in parallel.
Multipart download feature is also supported by S3 Browser Free and Pro!
But as you already know, Free version is limited up to the 2 simultaneous transfers.
