Aspera, Inc.: EMBL Deploys Aspera to Support Collaborative Research Effort With High-Speed File Exchange

Leading European Life Sciences Lab Uses Aspera Transfer Technology for Fast and Reliable Exchange of 10,000 Terabytes of Research Data Each YearARMONK, N.Y., Oct. 06, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced
that the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), a leading research
institution, has deployed Aspera to facilitate collaboration between globally
dispersed EMBL research units and partner organizations through the secure
exchange of large research datasets. The solution reduces transfer times and
improves reliability for EMBL, partners and researchers exchanging data.

As Europe's flagship laboratory for research in the life sciences, EMBL
strives to enable scientists to collaborate closely between its five sites in
four countries - the main laboratory in Germany, and outstations in France,
Germany, Italy and the UK (EMBL-EBI) - and with partners throughout Europe
and beyond.

To enable researchers to access state-of-the-art technology and specialist
expertise, EMBL operates a network of core facilities, each dedicated to a
specific subject, such as the Advanced Light Microscopy Core Facility, the
Electron Microscopy Core Facility, or the Genomics Core Facility (GeneCore),
which acts in the rapidly expanding field of next-generation sequencing
(NGS).

Researchers from across Europe and beyond who send GeneCore their biological
samples for analysis benefit from faster turnaround times with Aspera
transfers. As soon as EMBL receives a sample, they process and analyze it,
index it with metadata and compile a comprehensive information package. The
results are then delivered back to the organization at high speed using
Aspera. The ever-increasing demand for and capacity of sequencing
technologies mean that the amount of data being generated - and consequently
the volume of data to transfer - is growing exponentially, making solutions
like Aspera crucial.

Aspera Connect Server enables authorized users to upload and download data to
EMBL's vast databases using the self-installing Connect web browser plug-in.
Researchers simply log in to the secure web portal, upload the digital data
to be distributed and send it to the respective partner, who can download the
data set using a high-speed FASPTM transfer.

The solution enables EMBL to distribute 10,000 terabytes of data each year
with security and dependability, even over poor connections or long
distances. Since its implementation, no data loss has been recorded.

"The Aspera technology proved to be not only extremely fast and reliable, but
also secure, as the sensitive data can be encrypted at rest and in transit,"
said Dr. Jürgen Zimmermann, Senior Engineer - Automation at EMBL GeneCore.

"Using Aspera, EMBL transports information packages currently reaching up to
30 gigabytes per sample to life sciences research institutions at speeds that
are up to 100x greater than previous rates. As a result, EMBL is able to
provide services faster than was previously possible, and clients gain
valuable time to work on a diverse array of projects, ranging from vaccine
development to publishing scientific articles," said Arnd Kohrs, sales
director at Aspera.
