Core FASP TRANSFER STack

The core Aspera FASP transfer stack forms the foundation of every Aspera transfer server software application whether it is deployed on premises or consumed in the cloud. These robust and scalable services are built on top of the FASP™ high-speed transfer protocol, and support high speed file transfer, fast synchronization and high quality streaming of video and data.

The transfer software stack consisting of the FASP protocol, transfer services and higher function transfer, sharing and exchange applications, offers a complete solution that guarantees performance regardless of transfer distances, file sizes or network conditions. With optimized cloud I/O for cloud deployments, and comprehensive transfer and user management, the software moves large data sets over the WAN with unrivaled speed (100X faster than FTP or HTTP), flexible bandwidth control, 100% reliability and bullet-proof security.

ASCP and NEXT GENERATION ASCP4

Aspera's ascp is the core file transfer binary that ships with every version of Aspera transfer client and server software to deliver the fastest possible transfer speeds regardless of file sizes, transfer distance, or network conditions. ascp4 introduces a new architecture for ultra-high-speed transfer of very large collections of small files.  WHAT'S NEW

Node (asperanoded)

The foundational service for managing all transfer authorization, initiation, control and reporting for single server nodes and clusters, asperanoded provides a multi-tenant cluster-aware service and RESTful API for managing all core services in the transfer stack.  WHAT'S NEW

FASPStream high quality data and video streaming (coming soon!)

Aspera FASPStream transport service consist of a set of binaries and API which provide access to an Aspera high-speed transfer "pipe", powered by the FASP protocol to enable File-to-Stream, Stream-to-File, or Stream-to-Stream transfers. 

Aspera's new FASPStream product line, a turnkey solution created from the ground up by Aspera, has the potential to revolutionize the way live and near-live video is transported. The new FASPStream software applications use the FASPStream transport to stream live video with broadcast quality over commodity Internet networks, globally, with glitch-free play out and negligible startup time.  WHAT'S NEW

watchfolder (Watchd and watchfolderd)

Asperawatchd, a new high-performance file system notification service monitors the file system for changes and updates an internal snapshot with a novel architecture that scales up for fast change notification in file systems with up to 100 million items. It can be deployed across distributed sources and can work with Aspera Sync and Aspera Watchfolder for super-fast change notification and snapshot updates.

This new cross-platform directory watchfolder uses the new fast, scalable file system notifications to automate file and directory transfers. It also supports transfers of growing files, ordering of files as packages and advanced filtering. WHAT'S NEW

DIRECT TO CLOUD STORAGE (ASPERATRAPD)

Aspera pioneered Direct to Cloud storage high speed transfer - a technology that moves data directly to and from the object storage using Aspera FASP with no gateways. Implemented via fast in-memory communication between the FASP session and the asperatrapd service, the technology provides the most advanced solution for high-performance secure transfer, synchronization and streaming of large data sets to, from and between all major cloud and object storage systems. WHAT'S NEW

Aspera Sync (async)

Aspera Sync, Aspera's synchronization application for high speed detection and synchronization of file system changes provides one-way and bi-directional synchronization between all storage environments: local disk, NAS, SAN and cloud object stores. WHAT'S NEW

New Aspera Event Journal (aejd)

Starting with Enterprise Server 3.7.4, the Aspera Event Journal will ship as a new service providing a fast and flexible foundation for logging all Aspera application events -- from transfer details to application events -- in one common log format for easy consumption for auditing, troubleshooting, notification and analytics. The logformat uses the fast protobuf schema and a chunked transfer encoding for speed. AEJ includes a number of small compiled tools for fast and easy processing of AEJ-formatted logs for direct stream based insertion into splunk, kibana and other popular stream based log aggregators. WHAT's NEW

Autoscale Cluster Manager (atcm) and ScaleKV (asperascalekv)

Aspera's award winning cluster manager provides is an essential management system for provisioning, monitoring, managing and auto-scaling of Aspera transfer clusters. Designed to work on the top of the Aspera Enterprise Server stack in the cloud, the Autoscale cluster Manager is a fully API driven management system. Administrators have a comfortable web UI and corresponding set of APIs for all necessary cluster management tasks.  WHAT'S NEW
