Data Transport Appliances

Monkeybyte is a data transport solution that uses custom in-house built appliances to transfer large amounts of client data.

Using Monkeybyte helps address common challenges with large-scale data transfers including high network costs, long transfer times, and security concerns. Transferring data with Monkeybyte is simple, fast, secure and can be a significant saving on time and bandwidth.

Simply get in touch with your project requirements and an appliance will be delivered to you. Once on-site, attach the appliance to your network, configure IP or default to DHCP and start copying. We can also tailor the appliance to your specific project & infrastructure requirements.


Lease one or multiple units by day, week or month. We supply, transport and securely delete data on completion of the migration project. Transferring data with Monkeybyte is simple, fast, secure, and significantly saves on bandwidth usage, cost and availabillity. Can also be supplied as a stand-alone Veeam or Zerto box for pre-seeding your virtual machine data.


All appliances are custom built and racked into industry standard heavy-duty robust moulded or trunk style road flight cases, depending on weight. Ready to use and ship as is. We can also arrange secure transport of the Monkeybyte between client sites and assist with setup or simply supply for your internal project use and collect on completion.


Boxes support NFS, iSCSI and CIFS out of the box. With connectivity ports offering multiple 1 GBE or 10 GBE connections and link aggregation options spanning adaptive load balancing, LACP (802.1AX) & active/passive for failover. Boxes can be sent pre-configured for your specific requirements or client configured on-site.
