Trailer Park Aspera Case Study
Trailer Park Aspera Case Study
Enabling Marketing Clients to Submit Project Materials at Maximum Speed
“The two major reasons we need Aspera are for security and performance.”
In the past, Trailer Park had used standard ftp to complete transfers to and from their media clients. But ftp proved to be slow and unreliable due to the inherent bottlenecks in the underlying protocol. When the ftp system spontaneously crashed one day after a maintenance window, Trailer Park recognized that it was time to make a switch.
Of key concern for a new transfer solution was security. Trailer Park undergoes periodic reviews by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to examine their site security and compliance with the security guidelines set forth by the organization.
Trailer Park also wanted to attain greater visibility and control over the transfer environment, having experienced issues with bandwidth saturation in the past when they used a transfer client to send and receive content via their customers’ transfer servers, which provided them little ability to throttle transfers.

Transfers over the satellite connections are consistently 6-8 Mbps with Aspera (at full available bandwidth capacity) and ramp up to 40 Mbps+ when the vessels move into the WiMAX zone where bandwidth capacity increases, making transfers noticeably much faster
In my 17 years of experience of working on large scale IT projects, the Aspera deployment was the most successful I’ve been involved with and it imposed the least amount of inconvenience to our users and customers.
“Thanks to Aspera, file transfer speeds have improved 144% making it easy to meet court mandated deadlines and better serve our clients.”
Together the solutions significantly accelerate the turnaround time for data processing while at the same time solving the data throughput issue.
We wanted a solution that would work for a broad range of people, not just those with technological expertise. Using Aspera, anyone can upload or download data easily.
We can deliver content faster and more efficiently using Aspera. It would be hard to manage without it.
