The Starfish Ray is a light-weight footprint service installed on a client machine which enables the movement of data from a system behind the firewall to other cloud-based systems. Our cloud hosted Starfish software facilitates this movement of data. The Ray establishes a SSL connection (typically over websockets) to our hosted environment, then listens for requests. The Ray authenticates using a predefined Auth Token. After authentication, the Ray listens for requests from the server to pull or push data. This is always done in real-time - no data is ever stored on the server. This design enables database and legacy software to communicate with cloud applications without the need to open ports or punch holes in the customer's firewall.
