IBM Aspera is the Fastest of All Data Transfer Solutions on the Market
If you’re wondering why you should consider Aspera for business ERP, you should know that it is the fastest data transfer system on the market. Aspera can send up to 100TB of data around the globe every day to six continents (every continent except Antarctica).

Additional facts about IBM Aspera include:

  • It can send files up to 100X faster than FTP.
  • It delivers the fastest media streaming speeds with near-zero latency over the Internet.
  • It integrates with best-in-class security solutions from partners like Irdeto so that your data or media is transferred or streamed as securely as possible.

IBM Aspera Uses Patented FASP® Technology
Most file transfer solutions rely on the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) which was created in the early 1970s when the first personal computers were invented. As you can imagine, this nearly 50-year-old protocol was never intended to transfer the amount or quantity of data that a modern business like yours needs to transfer every day.

When TCP was created, it was designed to be reliable. That meant that it lined every file up in a queue, and sent one file at a time, ensuring the first file in line was successfully transferred before sending the next. While this reliability helped in the 1970s, it isn’t a practical solution for us in 2020. Today, global organizations need to transfer and stream large files simultaneously, and can’t operate efficiently with the bottlenecks created by TCP.

IBM Aspera is completely different. It uses its patented FASP technology – which stands for Fast, Adaptive, and Secure Protocol – to send multiple files simultaneously, while automatically resending failed file transfers.
