[IBM Aspera on Cloud] took a long time to upload large files but when it did, it was easy to send out.

Maximum Speed

We have absolutely benefitted from the speed of IBM Aspera on Cloud: of our approximate 170Mbps upload bandwidth, we can get on average around 150Mbps into the Cloud storage provided. So, realistically, a 40GB upload of our media files takes about 30 minutes. From there we then send it for delivery to our clients in India and China. There are two fantastic benefits. Firstly, Aspera on Cloud is able to push the files onwards through its network at speeds of nearly 400Gbps. Secondly, in terms of total data transferred, you only have to upload it once, and then you can push it to as many client downloads as you want.

Maximum Speed

We did not analyse the actual transfer rates as this was not the main criteria for us. Indeed the transfers were fast and we were able to launch many transfers at the same time (some were queued). At the end, all the transfers were completed after some hours. It was interesting to be able to launch all the transfers at once and see the day after that all has arrived perfectly.

Yes - even working from home I can set the bandwidth in such a way that it doesn't choke the internet for other uses, which is very useful. Most other upload and download services just go as fast as they go. For a large file that takes several hours to upload, it's great to have the option to slow down the transfer, and therefore still be able to do other bandwidth-intensive tasks simultaneously.
