The service allows users to transfer, exchange, and deliver data from any location to anywhere with anyone. The application is always on and available from anywhere. The software and infrastructure is managed by Aspera, allowing companies to focus on running their business. Licensing is subscription based and includes the cost of the software and the hardware. We update our SaaS software on a continuous basis so you always have access to the latest and greatest features, and never have to worry about upgrades.


Our software packaged as cloud-ready images is available as Aspera On Demand (AOD) and allows you to deploy any of our core transfer, distribution, exchange and sync software on the Cloud platform of your choice, with a flexible usage-based licensing model. AOD is available as virtual machine images that you can spin up, or as software binaries that you can install on bare metal servers. AOD is available on all leading cloud platforms including IBM Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.

aspera cloud technologies

Direct to Cloud Technology

.Built into every one of our SaaS and PaaS offerings is the unique Aspera Direct-to-Cloud technology which integrates the FASP high-speed transport with the underlying multi-part HTTP interfaces of the cloud object storage layer to enable the fastest file uploads and downloads while adding key transfer management features such as pause, resume, reporting and encryption over the wire and at rest.


Using Aspera Transfer Cluster Manager with Autoscale technology, the software self-scales transfer capacity for virtually unlimited transfer capacity (100 Gbps) per storage region. This includes automatic start/stop of transfer server instances, automatic balancing of client requests across available instances, monitoring and restart of all critical services on the server instances, and configurable service levels to manage maximum transfer load per instance, available idle instances for "burst" and automatic decommissioning of unused instances. The technology is infrastructure independent and works on all major clouds.


The Aspera transfer platform is the most advanced software solution for file transfer, synchronization and streaming of digital assets, allowing users and enterprises secure highspeed 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.
