High-speed synchronization over global distances

FASP transfer allows for maximum transfer speed regardless of file size, distance or network conditions. Sync continuously detects the precise available bandwidth to transfer at maximum speed, while being fair to other critical network traffic. Users can view transfer progress and performance with a view of global Sync sessions and activity, and monitor remote synchronization with Console. Data is delivered reliably to shorten replication and recovery times and accommodate network interruptions.

Flexible and powerful options

IBM® Aspera® Sync supports uni- and bidirectional sync and one-to-one, one-to-many and full-mesh synchronization in both push mode and pull mode among peers over WANs and LANs. The feature distributed event collection system offers the fastest possible captures of file system changes on clusters of ingest servers and high availability deployments. Aspera Sync also supports Windows bidirectional synchronization with open files and enables one-time replication and continuous synchronization.

Highly scalable architecture

The Aspera Sync architecture provides optimized performance that supports millions of files and multi-terabyte file sets. It supports concurrent synchronization session architecture, clustering and multi-gigabit transfer speed.

Efficient file synchronization

Aspera Sync detects local changes and compares them to the file system snapshot without having to check with remote systems. It offers bidirectional and unidirectional mode deduplication to detect multiple copies of a file at its source. It saves transfer and storage capacity by creating links to a single copy of the file at destination and provides fast scanning to detect scan mode changes for large data sets. In addition, it replicates file moves and file renames on the source and target.
