Aspera, Inc.: Aspera Files Will Bring New Levels of Large Content Sharing and Collaboration In The Cloud

New SaaS Introduced at NAB2015 Enables Fast, Easy and Secure Exchange of Any
Size File-Based Media Content and Big Data Combining Multiple Cloud and
On-Premise Storage Systems

ARMONK, N.Y., April 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBM today announced the
introduction of Aspera Files, a new SaaS platform byAspera, an IBM company,
that allows any organization, small to large, to establish a branded
web-based presence for the fast, easy and secure exchange and delivery ofany
size file-based media or data between end users across separate organizations,
combining multiple storage platforms. Content can be stored and easily
accessed in multiple cloud and on-premise storage systems, and sharing
between users and trusted organizations is as easy as drag-and-drop
regardless of where the content is located. Built on Aspera FASP transport
technology for distance-neutral transfer of large data over the Internet, the
platform will break all the enterprise barriers of conventional file sharing,
enabling high-speed access, delivery and exchange of any size data, at
distance, regardless of network conditions.

The requirement for today's enterprise to conveniently ingest, exchange, and
distribute file-based digital media content and big data fast, securely, and
with the "scale-up" capacity of cloud platforms is at an all-time high. Media
companies and enterprises at large are creating more high-resolution content
and data sets than ever, with increasingly shorter turnaround times in highly
competitive markets that also depend upon secure inter-company collaboration.
Until today, no single application platform has existed that can solve all of
the major barriers of the file exchange problem in this environment.

Aspera created Files to meet these requirements:

* Simplicity - Companies small and large can easily sign up, establish a
uniquely branded web presence under their "Organization" and be immediately
operational. Branded "Workspaces" can be created under each Organization
for project-based content sharing within a community of users. Sharing is
as easy as drag-and-drop regardless of where the content is located, on
multiple on-premises storage systems or across remote cloud infrastructure.

* Convenience -Users can share files with any authorized individual or group
by simply selecting the item, the target user or group, and the appropriate
access level. Shared content appears automatically in the Workspaces of the
target users with the appropriate permissions. Users can also select
finished content from any authorized storage location and send it to the
Inbox of other users or groups. Recipients are notified when a new digital
package has been received, and they may browse and download specific files
or folders in the package, or download the entire package itself.
* Performance - Built on top of Aspera FASP and Aspera's Direct-to-Cloud
storage technology, direct ingest, transfer, exchange and storage of even
the largest (4K) media formats occurs at maximum speed over the longest
long-haul global WANs to both on-premises and cloud / CDN "object" storage.
The platform supports storage and transfer of content in all major
commercial and open source cloud platforms-IBM SoftLayer Swift, AWS S3,
Azure Blob, Google Storage and Openstack Swift, and will be extensible to
major CDN cloud storage in the future-and supports traditional (SAN/NAS)
storage on premises via Aspera servers and clusters.
* Security - Aspera Files delivers complete security of content across
authorized users within each Organization, with third-party partners, and
with trusted organizations. The platform introduces a breakthrough
distributed content access control system that enforces content sharing
permissions on behalf of content owners and securely authenticates each end
user's access through a delegated OAuth authorization and secure access key
system. Content transfers may be encrypted on the wire and at rest, with
optional client-side and server-side encryption.
* Scale - Built on the new cross-platform Aspera Cluster Manager with
Autoscale, Aspera Files can easily scale up with new transfer server
instances in an Organization's location of choice, on premises or in the
cloud, to meet variable demand in throughput and storage. The distributed
self-scaling clustering technology automatically adds new transfer nodes as
transfer load increases, automatically moves heavily utilized transfer
nodes into an unavailable pool, and automatically spins down surplus nodes
when transfer demand subsides.
* Customization - Both Organizations and Workspaces allow for custom branded
logos and lightweight custom re-skins. A platform API allows organizations
to leverage native content sharing, transfer and scale out properties
within their own media management systems.

Aspera will be demonstrating a preview of Aspera Files, along with its entire
portfolio of high-speed file transfer, sharing and exchange products at
NAB2015 booth #SL9110.
