Aspera file transfer

Pro2col are proud to be partners with Aspera, part of IBM Software. Aspera, founded in 2004, is a pioneer in the enablement of high-speed, data-intensive workflows throughout the enterprise. Whilst there are other software vendors with accelerated file delivery protocols, in our opinion, none have managed to build out such a complete portfolio of products on top of their industry leading delivery protocol, FASP.

The Media & Entertainment industries were some of the first to have benefitted from Aspera’s fast file transfer solutions, where time-critical delivery of large files and volumes of data is key. Since then many other industries have adopted Aspera’s solutions to move data over long distances, challenging network conditions (including satellite), or where other technologies can’t handle terabytes or petabytes of data. This includes solutions for enterprise IT, games and software development, engineering and electronics, governmentlegal & eDiscovery, financial services, life sciences, media & entertainment and oil & gas to name a few.

Aspera has a mature and fully featured portfolio of on-premises applications and cloud-based services to satisfy the file delivery requirements of most organisations.  If your organisation needs to move large quantities of data and network conditions are challenging Aspera can help. To ensure you select the correct software package or cloud service, speak to one of our experienced file transfer consultants on 0333 123 1240.
