IBM

It is best suited to products and companies which extensively use IBM cloud and other cloud hosted services by IBM. This is because since the existing interface is a little challenging to use, IBM's own products and platform is well integrated with IBM Aspera on Cloud and there's relatively little work for the integration team

Cons

IBM

  • 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)

vBoxx B.V.

  • To use vBoxx you have an interface as administrator. To add a user, you have to use another interface.
  • When you are accessing your files via the web (not via the sync folder on your laptop, pc or tablet), you have to download and upload the file, you can't change it without downloading it. Unless I don't know [how to do] it.

Implementation Rating

IBM

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

IBM

Aspera comes with IBM cloud so there isn’t really a choice. Since it’s built-in, it integrates well and there was no need to buy another solution. Therefore, I did not consider other options. It worked fine, gave access files, push data securely, and did it faster than standard HTTPS.

Not used but evaluated: Dropbox (not secure enough + American servers) Google (not secure enough + American servers) OneDrive (not secure enough + American servers) Tresorit (is secure and has European servers) VBoxx won because of the availability by mail, chat and phone. That is the only thing that counts during emergencies.

Return on Investment

IBM

  • 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.
