Transport

Aspera's software moves the world’s data at maximum speed, regardless of file size, transfer distance or network conditions. 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.

FASP®

The most universal and open core transport technology available today, Aspera's patented FASP transfer technology is an innovative software that eliminates the fundamental shortcomings of conventional, TCP-based file transfer technologies such as FTP and HTTP. As a result, FASP transfers maximize the utilization of available bandwidth to deliver unmatched transfer speeds and to provide a guaranteed delivery time regardless of file size, transfer distance or network conditions. It supports all high-speed data transfer and automation scenarios across many industries that rely on the exchange, processing, storage and distribution of large data.  Learn more

a4

Aspera's A4 (a.k.a. Ascp4) is a next-generation file transfer binary that ships in version FASP 3.6 and greater alongside Ascp to introduce a new architecture for ultra high-speed transfer of small files in addition to large data sets. The architecture transfers one million files per minute for even the smallest file sizes and achieves > 5Gbps transfer rates for global RTT and packet loss conditions. Learn more
