Overview

IBM Aspera® has taken a different approach to tackling the challenges of big data movement over global WANs. Rather than optimize or accelerate the data transfer, Aspera virtually eliminates underlying bottlenecks altogether using a breakthrough transport technology. This technology fully utilizes available network bandwidth to optimize speed and quickly scale up with no theoretical limit.

Transport

At the heart of our solutions is the patented IBM FASP® transport software technology — the groundbreaking protocol that optimizes the utilization of available bandwidth to help deliver superior transfer speeds, improved security, more reliability and exceptional bandwidth control.

Streaming

The Aspera FASPStream transport technology is a revolutionary alternative designed for error-free transport of any bit-rate video over any distance on unmanaged internet with near-zero latency. Built on IBM's patented FASP protocol, this streaming technology provides fully reliable in-order byte-stream delivery for live feeds and growing files over commodity IP networks.

Cloud

Cloud

Built into IBM Cloud™ offerings is the Aspera direct-to-cloud technology, which integrates the FASP high-speed transport with the underlying multi-part HTTP interfaces of the cloud object storage layer. These features enable faster file uploads and downloads on all major cloud platforms. Aspera cloud products also include key transfer management features such as pause, automatic resume, reporting and encryption over the wire and at rest.

Autoscale

The Aspera transfer platform includes autoscale capabilities for dynamic, real-time scale out of transfer capacity with automatic start/stop of transfer server instances, available idle instances, automatic balancing of client requests and configurable service levels to manage transfer load per instance. The functionality is complemented by a scale out data store for distributed collection, aggregation and reporting of all transfer details across the auto scale cluster.
