Aspera, Inc.: Aspera Delivers Major Advances in Its Core FASP High-Speed Transfer Platform

New Capabilities Allow Enterprises to Transfer, Synchronize and Stream Digital Content Across Distributed Cloud and On Premises Systems, Meeting Variable Demands in Real Time With Speed, Control and EaseARMONK, N.Y., April 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBM today announced at
NAB2015 that Aspera, an IBM company, is unveiling the next generation of its
unique FASP software platform for moving Big Data and media at maximum speed
and scale regardless of size, distance or network conditions. Multiple
breakthrough new capabilities and advanced features allow enterprises of all
sizes to meet variable data movement demands in real time with speed,
control, security and ease, and all capabilities are designed to move data
directly to cloud and on premise storage.

Advances in the Core Transport

* ascp4 is the next-generation Aspera file transfer binary introducing a new
architecture for ultra high-speed transfer of small files in addition to
large data sets. The architecture transfers up to one million files per
minute for even the smallest file sizes (e.g.<10KB) and achieves>5Gbps
transfer rates for global RTT and packet loss conditions (200ms / 2%).
* FASPStream transport expands Aspera's FASP transport technology for "live"
and "near live" data streaming. Aspera FASP is a patented transport
protocol for achieving highly efficient bulk data transfer over IP
networks, independent of distance and quality (round-trip latency and
packet loss). FASPStream expands this capability to provide a fully
reliable streaming protocol for in-order data delivery over Internet WANs
with excellent quality and negligible start up delay. Aspera will
demonstrate live video delivered over commodity Internet directly from
Times Square to the NAB Show Floor.

Advances in Aspera Direct-to-Cloud Transfer and Autoscaling

Aspera Direct-to-Cloud Storage
transfer capability moves even the largest (4K) media formats from source
directly to object storage destination with native I/O for all major cloud
storage providers: IBM SoftLayer Swift, AWS S3, Microsoft Azure Blob, Akamai
NetStorage, Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage, Google Cloud Storage, and
HDFS (beta). The solution outperforms other cloud storage "acceleration"
solutions for large files and sets of small files in sustained transfer
speed, aggregate throughput, number of concurrent transfers and CPU/memory
efficiency. Version 3.6 brings many new capabilities to all Aspera On Demand
products such as:

* Server-side encryption at-rest in addition to client-side, as well as
in-transit encryption
* Automatic determination of the cloud storage part size allowing for the
largest file sizes to be sent without specific configuration.
* New clustered transfers enable 10 Gbps+ transfers in/out/between clouds.
* A new AsperaTransfer Cluster Manager (ATCM) with Autoscale technology
providing elastic scaling, a multi-tenant access key system for security
and transfer reporting, and automatic high availability. The ATCM is a
cloud-infrastructure independent service created by Aspera that allows for
dynamic, real-time scale out of transfer capacity with automatic start/stop
of transfer server instances, automatic balancing of client requests across
available instances and configurable service levels to manage maximum
transfer load per instance, available idle instances for "burst" and
automatic decommissioning of unused instances.

Advances in Transfer Automation, Synchronization and Management

* A new Aspera WatchFolder Service is specifically designed to power
high-volume automated file and directory transfers with advanced features
for media workflows and content distribution.

Built onasperawatchd
, a new file system notification service, designed for speed, scale and
distributed change watching, watch directories can now cover huge file
systems and large numbers of watch folders. Collections of files and folders
can now be grouped into a single "drop" and transferred to remote nodes as a
single logical unit and controlling which files arrive last. "Growing"(in
progress) files are fully supported. A RESTful API enables programmatic
control for customized and automated processing.

* Aspera Sync 3.6 also integrates asperawatchd technology to capture changes
on any local or shared storage client host (CIFS, NFS, etc.) and aggregate
all changes in real time in a single snapshot for speed on very large file
systems. File attribute changes (Windows ACL, Unix ownership) are synced,
even when content is not updated, and LZ compression achieves high
performance on low capacity networks. Bidirectional synchronization now
works on cloud storage as well as block storage.
* Aspera Console 3.0 for Centralized Management is built on a new
architecture with the ability to precisely regulate reporting load as the
number of transfer nodes increases, dramatically improving scalability,
robustness, and timely transfer status for large deployments. Many new
settings and options have been added, includingadvanced email notification
triggers on any transfer attribute such as source and destination path,
Aspera Shares and Faspex user attributes, and transfer directories;new
managed node clusters allow managed nodes to be assigned to cluster groups
with shared storage to support automatic load balancing and failover of
transfers; and anadvanced search of transfer history searches by transfer
names, IDs, contacts, paths, and status.

Aspera will be demonstrating a preview of Aspera Files, a new SaaS offering
for global large data sharing built on this next generation platform, along
with its entire portfolio of high-speed file transfer, sharing and exchange
products at NAB2015 booth #SL9110. Detailed product features are available
