2014 NAB SHOW, Booth SL8511
Aspera, Inc. (http://www.asperasoft.com/),
an IBM Company and creators of next-generation software technologies
that move the world’s large data at maximum speed, today announced that
Aspera Drive (http://asperasoft.com/software/transfer-clients/drive/),
a new high-performance file sharing and synchronization solution, is now
available to all customers. The powerful and easy-to-use platform, built
on the unique Aspera FASP (http://asperasoft.com/technology/transport/fasp/)™
technology, combines high-speed secure transfer, remote browsing and
synchronization of any size data from the user’s desktop to any content
location – on premise and throughout the cloud.
Organizations using today’s file sharing services to improve data access
and document sharing face the inherent limitations and risks of these
services. File size limitations, slow performance over the wide area
network and concerns over content security have limited enterprise
adoption to simple collaboration scenarios.
Aspera Drive overcomes these limitations with a powerful and secure data
sharing and collaboration application and backend platform. Teams can
securely browse, sync, send and share files and directories of any size
directly from Windows Explorer and Mac Finder, with maximum speed at any
distance with full privacy and access control. Content is securely
transferred from its native location with transparent browse and sync
control in the desktop.
The FASP transfer platform, which powers the Drive file-sharing
ecosystem, eliminates the trade-off decisions across access, security,
infrastructure and cost. Customers have the flexibility to deploy
in-house on dedicated infrastructure, in the cloud with virtual servers
and storage, or using hybrid infrastructure combining on premise and
cloud. These options allow organizations to take full advantage of
storage and bandwidth at any location, retaining full control over
security and service levels, while enjoying the fastest possible access
and transfer times.
“Aspera Drive brings the power of Aspera FASP directly to the desktop of
users across the enterprise,” said Michelle Munson, Aspera co-founder
and CEO. “The elegant end-user experience preserves all of the speed,
security and reliability of Aspera technology and provides it to any
individual in the extended organization.”
Aspera Drive – the Desktop Experience
Aspera Drive enables the transfer and synchronization capabilities of
the Aspera High-Speed Transfer Platform directly within the desktop file
· Users can remotely browse shared files, and easily move those files
and folders between platforms with a simple drag and drop from Windows
Explorer and Mac Finder.
· Users can directly synchronize any network file system or local
directory with remote servers and other Drive users, or mirror content
from remote sites.
· Large files or entire directories can be delivered as faspex (http://asperasoft.com/software/web-applications/faspextm/)™
packages to remote project teams by simply right-clicking and entering
the recipient’s email address. Users can also subscribe and
automatically receive faspex packages to their Drive Inbox.
· All data remains secure with a powerful and flexible security model
combining authorization with enterprise Active Directory/LDAP,
fine-grained access control and encryption over the wire and at rest.
Next Generation Web and Platform Experience
Aspera Drive is powered by Aspera’s latest high-performance digital
delivery platform, which unifies all of the file sharing and package
sending capabilities into a web application tier that deploys in
conjunction with Aspera high-speed transfer servers on premise or in the
· Native support for direct transfer to IBM SoftLayer, Google Storage,
OpenStack Swift, Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure Blob enables direct
high-speed transfer to, from and between cloud and on-premise
infrastructure. The deep integration with the object storage APIs adds
transfer management features including pause, resume, encryption over
the wire and at rest, and HTTP fallback.
· The platform supports access control, integrated remote transfer and
· The new auto-scaling platform scales transfer capacity in real time
with automatic start/stop of transfer server instances, automatic
balancing of client requests, and configurable service levels to manage
transfer load, “burst” capacity and decommissioning of unused instances.
· Share-to-share transfer, upload, download and synchronization
incorporate the Aspera Shares authorization and access control, and are
available directly via a new Shares API.
Aspera will be showcasing Drive and its entire suite of high-speed
transfer software and services at NAB 2014 at the Aspera booth (SL8511).

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
