These cloud storage products deliver sufficient space to store data and access and have an array of ways to transfer this data and keep it secure. IBM Aspera on Cloud focuses on the transfer and makes it a lot faster mainly due to its patented tech and altered UDP protocol. Since most of production code uses IBM services, it was natural to go with IBM Aspera on Cloud.

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.

My company used Dropbox before we implemented Aspera. When it comes to file security we felt more comfortable in Aspera. The file transfer speed especially uploading and downloading files using Dropbox was very low. We found it not that reliable when it came to file transfer. Aspera, when compared to Dropbox, was very fast and reliable. It saved us a lot on the internet bandwidth, where we could go with a medium to low-speed internet. Another issue with Dropbox is its lack of flexibility in integrations. It is hard to integrate Dropbox with other software this makes file storage a big challenge, you have to manually save the file in the Dropbox.

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.

They are all good services as well for smaller files, but for large files using a service like Aspera is imperative since otherwise, you have to start an upload/download all over if it stalls or fails.

Other services were very barebones and did not offer storage options. The option of not using on-premise storage for a transfer solution is a game-changer. We can rely on the distributed node advantage for data protection and speed, while still maintaining the integrity of our software packages and not worrying about size requirements.
And the speed. Not even a contest. Aspera gives us more speed than we can use, and our clients get the benefit of being able to transfer content whenever and wherever.

Aspera works with external entities that don't have Google accounts. Its a less of a headache to integrate or force people to use Google products.

File size is not limited with Aspera on Cloud. Also, the speed is really, really fast compared to others. Finally, the security features make it more reliable than other products.

Aspera Managed File Transfer racks up evenly against its' competitors. I use different programs to share and upload media to different affiliates, however this program seems to be one of the most popular in the industry. This could be due to the ease of use, and the fact that media is able to be shared in a very fast time frame.

Initially the organization depended on services like Dropbox and Google Drive to share and store files for the graphic department as well as use their own private servers for storage. However, the speed for uploading and downloading wasn't reliable. Plus it lacked the central console for a birds eye view of the exchanges to keep track of what the users were uploading/downloading. The speed for Aspera has been unbeatable compared to other systems, plus its a very reliable, dependable system for large file to be shared in time.
