Aspera allows full-speed transfers of large files over distances where regular FTP or HTTP would be prohibitively slow. Options include servers, clients, web applications (Aspera Shares and Faspex), and a full management suite.

High Speed Transfer Technology

The Aspera transfer platform is the the most advanced software solution for file transfer, synchronization and streaming of digital assets, allowing users and enterprises secure high speed movement of all of their data over any distance, to any environment, with none of the waiting. Covering a wide range of server, desktop and mobile operating systems, Aspera provides the most modern and flexible options as Software as a Service (SaaS), Run-your-own Software in the Cloud (single tenant), and On Premise Deployments.

Central in a typical Aspera deployment, the transfer servers combine fasptransport with comprehensive transfer and user management for large-scale enterprise data movement. Running on premise or on demand in the cloud, they provide a highly scalable and secure transfer environment that supports files of any size, thousands of concurrent transfers, and an unlimited number of users.
