Overview

Top rule

IBM® Aspera® solutions are industry-standard applications that are purpose-built for moving large files, directories, and data sets over wide area network (WANs) with optimised performance, scaling significantly with on-demand cloud storage and computing capacity. The portfolio's innovative, security-rich data transfer tools can move data at optimal speed and bandwidth efficiency, regardless of distance or network conditions.

New ordering options and flexibility

IBM Aspera delivers a new bandwidth tier for transfer server with the introduction of the IBM Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server 2.5 Gbps ordering option.

IBM Aspera Sync Application has a new ordering option for unlimited files per Establishment in both clustered and non-clustered configurations that benefits high-end use cases.

In addition, both IBM Aspera Shares Application and IBM Aspera faspex Application, can now be purchased separately.

IBM Aspera software solutions can bring improved cost savings and efficiency gains to organizations that need to move large volumes of data over public and private IP networks. Designed to be easy to deploy, fully cross-platform, and compatible with all file types and network types, Aspera solutions deliver optimised levels of transfer performance to file-based workflows.

New program numbers have been created for IBM Aspera Shares, IBM Aspera faspex, and IBM Aspera Sync applications in order to simplify the part structure and separate them from their current program number of 5725-S60.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
