What is IBM Aspera
IBM Aspera offers a redundant, highly scalable architecture that securely and reliably transfers your data up to hundreds of times faster than FTP and HTTP.
Now you can experience a revolutionary approach to tackling the challenges of big data movement. Instead of optimising or accelerating data transfer, the power of IBM Aspera exists in its ability to completely eliminate underlying bottlenecks using a breakthrough transport technology.
This technology fully utilises available network bandwidth to maximise speed and quickly scale up with no theoretical limit.
Key features of IBM Aspera:
Bandwidth control – this is provided by the bandwidth utilisation algorithm in FASP. This provides fast and automatic discovery of the available bandwidth, ensuring it is used to its full capability.
Configurable ‘fair play’ to standard TCP traffic – while any available bandwidth can be filled by FASP, it also has an intelligent adaptive transmission-rate control mechanism that scales down to ensure fairness for TCP traffic. It will then automatically ramp up to maximise unused bandwidth.
Flexible and open architecture – interoperable file and directory transfer between all major operating systems and cloud platforms are supported, providing a complete, modern software API.
Reporting and monitoring – enjoy end-to-end transfer progress and detailed performance statistics for real-time monitoring and reporting, as well as custom pre- and post-transfer processing.
