Embrace a migration solution that can handle big data growth

As workloads move to the cloud, it’s increasingly necessary to migrate or replicate huge data repositories and archives to, from and between on-premises data centers and any leading cloud.

But moving large amounts of data physically and over IP networks in required timeframes can be daunting. Traditional transfer software technologies are slow, unreliable and often impractical. Shipping physical disk storage is time consuming and can also expose your data to unnecessary security risks, such as loss or theft.

IBM® Aspera® offers a patented high-speed data transfer technology that uses your existing network to securely and reliably migrate large amounts of data at maximum speed. It supports four common migration scenarios: On premises to cloud, cloud to on premises, on premises to on premises, and cloud to cloud.

Providing fast and reliable data migration for breweries

AB InBev was looking for a fast, highly reliable, but cost-effective way of migrating massive amounts of data into its information systems, so it turned to IBM Aspera for its proven high-speed migration and synchronization solutions. The company has transformed significantly over the last few years through a series of mergers and acquisitions, which have resulted in a sprawling estate of technology systems and tremendous amounts of data, all of which had to be integrated into AB InBev’s existing infrastructure. The technology reduced the risks associated with large-scale data migrations and saved AB InBev valuable time while eliminating complexity.
