I am seeing what i think is a transfer speed of 300 per second on a wan link can this be right?

this seems way to fast for a WAN , can any wan link achieve speeds like this ?

What is your connection specs? which direction is the transfer?  Are you getting data from external sources or are you uploading data to an external source?
Where are you transferring data from or transferring data to could make a difference as well.

this is in both directions , I have moved a 100gb and a 600gb and they will take this is a VMcenter stretch datacenter , running over OTV on the same VLAN

this is going from one ESXI to another ESXI

300Mb (Megabits) or 300MB(MegaBytes)?

Please note that if is 300Mb then it is 38MB so if you have site to site connection over 40+ Mb connection, it is possible.

And what is the link speed between the sites?

Also, is there a WAN accelerator on each site?

There are many different connections.
T1/E1 1.5Mb/sec
T3
DS1 1.5 Mb/sec
DS3 45 Mb/Sec

OC
etc.
Then you have the Async DSL, ADS, IDSL, FIOS, etc.
What are the distances between the location from and to which you are transferring.
This might be a POINT TO POINT LINK for the organization.

Fiber connections.

If you're worknig at a large corporation or in higher education, you might just have those speeds.  I had a 1 Gb connection on Internet2 for several years at a previous employer.  It was limited to 1 Gb only because my network card and the LAN it was on was gigabit.  I sure the main link was 10 Gig when they first installed it.  They had multiple Gigabit links between buildings.

You could really do a lot with those speeds.  If only the US Telcos had upgraded when they were given those tax breaks, we wouldn't be about a decade behind trying to play catchup.

Then you probably have multiple 1Gb or single 10Gb.

NAMEWITHELD12Author Commented:
yup , thanks all , I just wanted to see if what I am seeing is possible before I present to my company some facts , they have a lot of money and can afford great bandwith , but I was surprised  about the speed
