Overcoming the bottlenecks of conventional synchronization

Replicating or synchronizing massive data stores over wide-area networks (WANs) presents serious challenges using traditional TCP-based replication tools. In many cases, performance significantly degrades as latency and packet loss increase due to greater transfer distances and the kind of network congestion that occurs with large transfers.

IBM® Aspera® Sync offers extreme performance and efficiency to overcome the limitations of conventional synchronization tools like rsync. It lets you scale up and out for quick, reliable replication and synchronization over WANs.

NI accelerates development by 95%

Using the patented high-speed transfer technology in IBM Aspera, NI was able to significantly accelerate its global software development pipeline by synchronizing large software builds between teams at 17 sites around the world from its centralized data center in Austin, Texas.

The deployment made development timelines and costs far more reliable and predictable while significantly reducing the risk of delivery. Now the company is more responsive to customers and develops innovative products and features quicker.

Attain high-speed replication and synchronization

Achieve massive scale

Harness the power of an architecture that enables synchronization of millions of small files or multi-terabyte files with support for concurrent sessions, clustering and multi-gigabit transfer speeds.

Sync more efficiently

Avoid unnecessary copying, as Aspera Sync can intelligently recognize changes and file system operations, instantly propagating them to remote peers and reducing your RTO and RPO.

Configure to your needs

Choose from several options that include unidirectional 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.
