backup streams

A connection between the PureDisk client and the PureDisk content router through which data is sent. In case of multistreaming, the client establishes multiple connections to the same content router and distributes the total volume of backup data over all available connections. Multistreamed backups (vs. single streamed) increase the aggregated throughput from client to content router, thus allowing backups to finish sooner.
