Technology

While many companies and academic institutions have tackled the WAN data movement problem, they have chosen to optimize or accelerate the data transfer rather than solving the fundamental bottlenecks that exist in the underlying transport itself, yielding solutions that provide some relief but are still limited by design.

Aspera took a different approach: solving the problem by eliminating the underlying bottleneck altogether. This allowed us to create a breakthrough transport technology that can fully utilize the available network bandwidth, transfer data at maximum speed, and scale up as needed with no theoretical limit. This philosophy of innovation is fused into Aspera’s DNA, and built into the core technology and software products that fuel the company’s consistent and rapid growth.

TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGY

At the heart of our solutions is our patented fasp™ transport technology – a breakthrough transfer protocol that leverages existing WAN infrastructure and commodity hardware to achieve speeds that are hundreds of times faster than FTP and HTTP, and delivers end-to-end security, 100% reliability and exceptional bandwidth control.

PLATFORM ENABLEMENT

Aspera’s technology is available for deployment on a wide variety of application delivery platforms. Mobile users can take advantage of fasp-AIRTM technology to transfer data at high speeds to and from their iOS and Android devices. Cloud and NAS platforms benefit from extreme transfer scalability of Aspera transfer servers and web applications for private and public storage and computing clouds. A comprehensive suite of web applications and components enables high-speed web-based data transfers for a variety of business use cases.

DEVELOPER RESOURCES

Aspera’s high-performance fasp™ transport technology can easily be embedded thanks to a comprehensive software development kit featuring SOAP web services and Javascript APIs, as well as cross-platform libraries for Mac, Windows and Linux (Java, C++, C#, .NET). A subscription to Aspera Developer Network provides users with comprehensive and up to date libraries, documentation and user guides, and detailed code samples.

“On the surface, the other technologies looked like they may do the trick, but when we looked at the hard numbers, they didn’t hold a candle to what Aspera was delivering.” Shane Zucker, Chief Marketing Officer at Aviate
