Aspera Showcases New High Speed Transfer Software

Aspera FASP 3.6 offers new performance, multi-tenancy and hybrid cloud or on premise transfer capabilities.

The FASP 3.6 platform has new stream APIs to enable high-speed predictable transfer of live video and data streams over WANs. Read and write file data as an input or output stream, rewrite sections of files during transport, and transport live video over long distance networks.

A new Aspera transfer system allows tenants to privately manage storage for Aspera transfers via a new access key system, and all public and private cloud storage systems, as well as SAN/NAS/local storage are supported.

A new ‘ascp4’ transfer application combines multi-threaded IO with the FASP protocol to transfer at 1 million files per minute, the equivalent of 10 Gigabits per second for DPX files transferred around the world.

New multi-node transfers allow mass data transfers to cloud storage clusters (e.g. 120 Terabytes migrated per day).

A new cross-platform directory watch folder service with fast, scalable file system notifications automates file, directory, and growing file transfers, supports ordered delivery of files and metadata, and centralizes management in the Aspera Console.

Aspera’s high-speed transfer with cloud storage now supports ten different object stores, adding HDFS, IBM Cleversafe, NetApp Cloud and the AWS GovCloud, to SoftLayer Swift, AWS S3, Azure BLOB, Google Storage, Akamai NetStorage, and Limelight Object Storage. Many new features enable faster performance and better security and functionality, including the Autoscale Transfer Cluster Manager software that automatically scales the number of Aspera server nodes for client transfer demands up and down based on user-defined policies and SLAs.

Demonstrating Aspera integration on NAB stands are 5th Kind, BASE Media Cloud, CATDV, DimetisFirefly Cinema and Fortium TechnologiesIrdeto and JOUST.
