Scalable Synchronization of Big Data - Over Distance
Transferring, replicating, or synchronizing over wide-area networks (WANs) presents serious challenges using traditional TCP-based replication tools. The latency and packet loss over distance disrupts replication when relying on TCP, especially for larger transmissions such as big files and very large collections of small files.
To meet this challenge, we built Aspera Sync with extreme performance and scalability in mind. Built on top of our high-speed fasp transport, it overcomes the bottlenecks of conventional synchronization tools like rsync, and scales up and out for maximum speed replication and synchronization over WANs.
FASTBuilt on top of fasp, synchronization and replication is up to hundreds of times faster than rsync or other comparable enterprise-grade sync technologies, regardless of the size of data being replicated, or the distance between end points.
SecureEncryption in transit and at rest assures maximum security of business-critical digital assets, and data integrity verification guards against man in the middle attacks.
Highly ScalableHighly scalable synchronization architecture supports synchronization of millions of files and multi-terabyte file sets at multi-gigabit transfer speeds.
INTELLIGENTAspera Sync intelligently recognizes changes and file system operations, instantaneously propagating these to remote peers, avoiding what can be hours of unnecessary copy times.
SYNCHRONIZATION AND REPLICATION APPLICATION EXAMPLES
CONTENT DISTRIBUTION AND COLLECTION
Flexible deployment options allow you to create simple one-to-one or complex multi-site hub-and-spoke synchronization topographies to collect or distribute content, software updates and business data across remote, geographically dispersed locations, regardless of file sizes, locations and distance.
CONTENT AND SYSTEM MIRRORING
Completely replicate digital content across multiple locations offering additional access points to ensure the content is always available. Fastest possible transport with fasp, and continuous synchronization through OS notifications ensuring alternate systems are always up to date.
DISASTER RECOVERY AND BUSINESS CONTINUITY
With fasp-powered transfers, high-speed replication from primary to backup sites completes within small operational windows ensuring your data and applications are protected and you can meet your stringent recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO).
FILE ARCHIVING AND STORAGE
Improve the efficiency and utilization of your storage systems by moving inactive data from expensive high-performance primary storage to secondary remote storage.
DATA MIGRATION FOR DIVERSE STORAGE ENVIRONMENTS
Hardware and system agnostic, Aspera Sync can migrate an entire file system, or portions of the file system from aging or legacy storage to a newly provisioned storage system, preserving file attributes such as permissions, access times, and ownership. High-speed replication over the WAN ensures the migration completes in a fraction of the time of proprietary systems that use traditional protocols, minimizing system downtime.
