System and method for optimizing performance of File Transfers based on the organizational structure

File transfer systems are tools of choice for sharing content in efficient and secure

ways. The popularity of these mechanisms, also often creates performance issues, since transfer of content is often gated by network performance , software performance, and other technical factors.

Common solutions to these problems include the introduction of faster networks , installation of powerful hardware, and applying complicated caching techniques. The drawback of these solutions is increased cost.

The novel solution is a method to optimize the file transfer performance based on rules related to the organizational structure in which the transfers are taking place. In many cases, the performance needs for a content transfer mechanism are determined by the roles and hierarchy of the people in the organization and the specific types of the communication. The method evaluates pluggable rules against the organizational structure and parameters and assigns corresponding priority levels to individual file transfers.
