IBM Aspera on Cloud provides the fastest way for media companies to securely and reliably move large content globally across on-premises and multi-cloud environments. It provides seamless access to data wherever it’s stored, enabling users to collaborate in a secure environment that tightly controls access to content and application functionality.

Large files and data sets are transferred across the storage environment using Aspera's patented FASP® protocol, which overcomes the limitations of TCP and physical disk shipments to move content at maximum speed regardless of network conditions, physical distance between sites, and file size, type, or number.

With full visibility and control over the Aspera transfer environment, users can:
• Manage transfer activities, storage usage, and digital packages.
• Monitor activity logs and service alerts.
• Manage membership in workspaces, user groups and shared inboxes.
• Easily create a uniquely branded web presence.

New automation functionality enables users to quickly build and configure event-driven transfer workflows using an easy-to-use graphical workflow designer. Organisations can streamline content delivery workflows by automatically triggering transfers with an action such API calls, operator manual intervention, file-arrival events and shared-inbox file submissions. Workflows can also issue notifications of a transfer. The new capability enables you to integrate Aspera Orchestrator and Aspera on Cloud workflows

While media organisations are increasingly adopting hybrid-cloud workflows that use a combination of public cloud, private cloud, and on-premises storage and compute resources, moving content has become more challenging. For example, files are often stored in multiple clouds and on-premises systems. Traditional transfer technologies are slow and unreliable, and physical disk shipments are impractical, often exposing data to unnecessary security risks.

IBM Aspera on Cloud overcomes these challenges by allowing media companies to securely and reliably move content across on-premises and multi-cloud environments at unrivalled speed.

Users can securely collaborate with anyone around the world, as enterprise-grade security protects content as it’s shared and exchanged. 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.

Aspera On Cloud is available in numerous cloud data centres across the world and in several languages. It’s available to order online as a pay-as-you-go option, or an annual pre-committed volume rate plan.

Major film studios, post-production companies, and broadcasters rely on Aspera on Cloud to reduce their production cycles while securely delivering high-resolution media worldwide, to provide consumers with their best content, faster and more efficiently than ever.
