Cross-Domain Application Synchronisation

Through a patented concept called ‘Application Synchronisation’, TurbineSync supports a range of use cases in the commercial and government data environments.

TurbineSync consists of low and high side components separated by a high assurance data-diode (unidirectional optical device). TurbineSync uses a novel algorithm to provide a pseudo-synchronous exchange of information one way through the diode. Applications on the receiving side of TurbineSync believe that are connected across the diode and interact as though they have a bidirectional link.

TurbineSync has been used in the following use cases:

•    Cross-Domain NMS. With the use of TurbineSync, a government department was able to monitor its entire network including the unclassified infrastructure and multiple security domains using a single NMS system.
•    Video Streaming. TurbineSync allowed another organisation to capture live video feeds from unclassified sources and pass them into a classified domain in real time.
•    GIS and database Publishing. Large GIS files and databases can be synchronised through TurbineSync for use with applications without having to interact with the sensitive and protected production facility.
•    SharePoint Replication.  TurbineSync provides a mechanism for synchronising full fidelity SharePoint sites across security domains.
•    Web Site Synchronisation. TurbineSync is able to replicate website content through the diode to allow users in a protected or isolated domain to view information from the Internet not normally available in that domain.

TurbineSync consists of a pair of security matched hardware and software instances that connect either side of a data diode.  Turbine is data diode agnostic.
