IBM Explains IBM Aspera On Cloud
IBM Aspera on Cloud is intended to overcome the file transfer challenges of the hybrid cloud.
IBM Aspera on Cloud is a new hosted service for media organizations increasingly adopting a hybrid-cloud workflow that uses a combination of public cloud, private cloud, and on-premises storage.
IBM says that traditional transfer technologies bridging these environments are slow and unreliable, and physical disk shipments between them are time consuming and expose data to unnecessary security risks.
IBM Aspera on Cloud is intended to overcome the file transfer challenges of the hybrid cloud by allowing media companies to securely and reliably move their content across on-premises and multi-cloud environments at unrivalled speed.
“Whether content is stored on-premises or in the cloud, IBM Aspera on Cloud offers a simple user interface for accessing all of it,” describes the company. “A file-system–like structure allows users to easily move folders across data centers and cloud platforms using drag-and-drop. They can directly send large files from on-premises or cloud storage out to clients and partners, and invite them to upload content directly to their storage locations. Access to such transfer functionality and configured content stores are protected by a powerful access control model managed by service administrators.
“By fully utilizing available bandwidth, transmissions achieve substantially higher speeds than traditional network transfer technologies. Aspera’s unique direct-to-cloud transport technology moves content from the client all the way into the cloud storage layer, ensuring high-speed transfers and immediate post-transfer data availability.”
Among features is the ability to drag-and-drop files and folders to transfer to any storage location or to share with other users and groups, to extend Aspera on Cloud access to the desktop, browser and mobile applications; and store and configure access to transfer nodes located in their data center or in platforms from AWS, Azure, and Google.
