If you need a software solution for your business to transfer files and data and stream content at high speeds, we want to help. When it comes to the best solutions, Media Shuttle and IBM Aspera are often compared against each other. As professionals with over 10 years in the industry, we’re here to help explain the differences between them and the benefits.

Media Shuttle vs IBM Aspera

Signiant’s Media Shuttle is primarily a Managed File Transfer provider, offering advanced automation, tracking, and regulatory compliance features. Their data transfer acceleration technology provides limited performance gains, and falls back to traditional TCP-based data transfer as needed. Their pricing emphasizes multi-year annual contracts based on subscription or maintenance.

IBM Aspera produces a variety of streaming video and file transfer tools. They enable companies to securely and reliably move big data and large files across on-premise and multi-cloud environments at unrivaled speeds. No matter the file size, transfer distance, or bandwidth, they help companies achieve the fastest possible transfers with predictable delivery times. Their pricing model is very flexible based on bandwidth, product, amount of data transferred, and number of files being accessed so you can personalize it to your company needs.
