Cubby is great to just drop a file in and share it with another user

IBM Aspera on Cloud

If most datasets are file-based and they are sizable, like 10-100 GB, then Aspera is worth connecting. It is built into IBM cloud and so no additional purchase. If your data is already in a multi-cloud environment, then the speed to movement is probably already resolved and Aspera would not be needed.

Pros

Cubby (Discontinued)

  • Extremely easy to use.
  • Cross-device syncing is the best feature.
  • Allows for offline sync between devices (DirectSync).

IBM Aspera on Cloud

  • Ease of use: the Graphical User Interface doesn't require technical know-how to operate
  • Delivery Receipts: this allows us the confidence to know our files have reached our customers
  • Activity Monitor: lets you know how much data you have used, which is important for budgeting reasons.

Cons

Cubby (Discontinued)

  • Critical mass of users
  • It could be more recognized
Miguel Angel Merino Vega | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Aspera on Cloud

  • Track upload/download usage OVERALL to know how much space is left
  • Track cloud storage overall to know how much space is left
  • More easily send single links to users for download, rather than full access (I know it is possible, but it is not intuitive)

The LogMeIn company has always been very helpful and quick to respond to all of our support requests and just "how to" question we may have.

The support from IBM is fast and reliable. Very knowledgeable engineers provide you with the support on Aspera. We had a very good experience when opened tickets and we were able to get our issues resolved quickly. Most solutions are provided within a day so you can expect a quick turnaround time. Overall, the support has been very good.

The service provided by the authorized vendor was excellent. It was a good collaboration between the vendor IT team and internal IT team. They provided us with a timeline and we verified and approved that timeline. Daily stand ups and weekly meetups were conducted to update the internal team on progress. They were able to deliver all deliverables on time also, they conducted both alpha testing and beta version testing in time. Overall, they were able to complete the implementation in the given timeline.

Alternatives Considered

Cubby (Discontinued)

Cubby is especially new in the market and is contemplating its business focus. They have adapted what their predecessors have created and implemented significant improvements in safety, performance and availability.

IBM Aspera on Cloud

Aspera was used by most of our members (but not all), IBM consultancy was able to help for setting up the infrastructure in a couple of hours. This was quick and effective. We were able also to use quickly the ASPERA API with external tools to make exchanges between Aspera sites.

Return on Investment

Cubby (Discontinued)

  • Has helped our team immensely in collaboration.
  • Flawless syncing, DirectSync, version control and other features are a big PLUS!
  • It's worth the investment and recommended for bigger teams as well.

IBM Aspera on Cloud

  • Aspera has changed the way we do business. We are now able to share huge file sets electronically, saving on external drives, shipping costs, time, and effort.
  • Our industry is very slow to commit to electronic alternatives to physical media. In less than three years, the positive results of using this service have caused over 70% of our user base to fully commit to electronic delivery, with the number of physical fulfillments quickly being driven toward zero.
  • Transfers within our own company, which formerly relied solely on FTP/HTTP transfer drives that would take days now take minutes with Aspera. Our software team relies on the speed and accuracy of the transfers.
