STORAGE VISIONS 2014

Join Aspera at Storage VisionsJanuary 5 & 6, 2014 in Las Vegas, to discover the latest storage technologies and methods that improve performance, efficiency, and reliability.

Michelle Munson, CEO and Co-Founder of Aspera, will be presenting during “Taking It To The Streets: Getting Content Where it Needs to Go” on Monday, January 6th at 8:00am. The session will address the growing challenge of moving digital content as the size of content continually gets larger and will also explore the future of storage for aggregation and delivery of content. Register here

RECORDED WEBINAR: ESAC & NCI

In case you missed our recent webinar, “Case Study: ESAC and National Cancer Institute Advance Research with Aspera High-Speed Transfers,” a recording is now available online. Get an insiders view of how ESAC has added Aspera's high-performance transport capabilities to enable fast and secure sharing of large proteomic data sets from NCI's Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) data portals, reducing data delivery times and lowering overall program costs. Michelle Munson, CEO and Co-founder of Aspera, was joined by Karen A. Ketchum, PhD, Director at ESAC for the presentation. Watch the video

PHASE II INTEL RESEARCH COMPLETE

Aspera has announced the results of a research project that Aspera Labs, the research arm of Aspera, has done in collaboration with Intel Corporation to investigate ultra high-speed (40 Gbps and beyond) data transfer solutions built on Intel® Xeon® processor E5–2600 product family-based systems and Aspera’s fasp transport technology.

The research focused on an experimental integration between Aspera fasp and  Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel DPDK), which makes it possible to directly access the network interface controller, bypassing the kernel networking stack. Using Intel DPDK, Aspera was able to boost single-stream data transfer speeds to 40 Gbps. Read more

CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT: RDSI

The Research Data Storage Infrastructure(RDSI) Project, working closely with the Australian Government’s National Research Network (NRN) Project, is deploying solutions from Aspera to move large data to, from and between nationally-dispersed storage nodes and high-performance computing centers to strengthen Australia's capabilities in data-intensive research collaboration. 

Funded through the Education Investment Fund under the Super Science (Future Industries) initiative, and led by the University of Queensland, the RDSI project has received a $50 million in federal funding to provide data storage and collaboration infrastructure for Australia’s research community. The project is intended to assist institutions and researchers to more easily and effectively access, use, manage and share large holdings of research data, enabling Australian researchers to address issues of increased scale and scope. Read more
