IBM Aspera on Cloud
While media organisations are increasingly adopting a hybrid-cloud workflow that uses a combination of public cloud, private cloud, and on-premises storage and compute resources, moving content has become much more challenging. Files that need to be exchanged are often stored in multiple clouds and on-premises systems. As organisations have found, sending large media files via traditional transfer technologies or physical disk shipments is slow and unreliable, and can expose data to unnecessary security risks.
IBM Aspera on Cloud is a new hosted service that overcomes the file transfer challenges of the hybrid cloud by allowing media companies to securely and reliably move their content across on-premises and multicloud environments at unrivalled speed. Available for online purchase in the IBM Marketplace, users are able to self-provision the service and connect it to any market-leading public cloud (IBM Cloud, AWS, Azure, and Google), private cloud platform, or on-premises storage.

Wherever content is stored, Aspera on Cloud offers a simple user interface for accessing all of it. A file-system–like structure allows users to easily move folders across data centres and cloud platforms using drag-and-drop. They can deliver large files from on-premises or cloud storage out to clients and partners, and invite them to upload content directly to their storage locations.
Regardless of network conditions, Aspera on Cloud offers unrivalled performance for transferring large files and large collections of files across any distance. The service fully utilises available bandwidth, allowing transmissions to achieve substantially higher speeds than traditional network transfer technologies. Hosted in numerous cloud data centres across the US, Europe and Asia Pacific, Aspera’s unique direct-to-cloud transport technology moves content from the client all the way into the cloud storage layer, ensuring high-speed transfers and immediate post-transfer data availability.
The Aspera on Cloud web interface provides complete visibility and control over the Aspera high-speed transfer environment. Available in a variety of languages including Spanish, French, Traditional & Simple Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, the application allows users to manage transfer activities, storage usage, and digital packages in real time. Membership in workspaces, user groups and shared inboxes is controlled by a powerful access control model managed by service administrators. New automation functionality helps organisations quickly configure event-driven transfers, which can streamline content delivery workflows.
Enterprise-grade security protects valuable content as it is shared and exchanged with collaborators located anywhere around the world. The service authenticates users upon login, encrypts data in transit and at rest using strong cryptography, and verifies data integrity to protect against man-in-the middle attacks.
