It is used internally to transfer production logs, critical app data and resources. The engineering department uses and maintains it from time to time, the transferred files are accessible to some other concerned department(s) like internal analytics. Fast data transfer, especially for app resources and a cache backup are some problems this works best with.

Aspera On Cloud is used to deliver sizeable media files (often upwards of 20GB) in as fast a manner as possible across large WAN connections. Using this technology helps us to get our product to our clients that are located on distant continents so that they can meet their broadcast deadlines. This would be impossible with simple FTP methods--the transfer would be too slow.

IBM Aspera is being used to exchange Broadcast video files along various metadata files and auxiliary files among the European Broadcasting Union members. We have about 25 contributing members from different places in Europe and even from Japan, Canada and other places. We have about 50 members receiving the packages prepared depending on their requests.

We are using it primarily in my department to transfer large media files from one person to another for review. It's primarily needed due to the increased need to work from home, but is useful even during regular times.

IBM Aspera has been the most favorable file sharing and cloud transfer solution that my company has used. It is very reliable and efficient when it comes to file sharing and file transfer. My company is in the online retail sector, and we have multiple software that we use and that are a part of our operational model. Some of the software we use deals with sales, logistics, CRM, HR, etc. We require a reliable tool to share files on software installation, and these files also include authentic information that is sensitive and cannot be disclosed to unauthorized personnel. IBM Aspera for us, is the fastest file sharing solution in a highly secured environment. The embedded protocols meet our security standards and speed requirements. Most files that we transfer take a huge amount of space and IBM Aspera allows us to transfer those huge files very quickly. It's a fast-paced transfer tool even when the internet speed is not that high. Aspera makes sharing large size files over the internet very easy.

We are using it to transfer data within the organization and between external parties. It addresses problems like file collaboration, sync, automation, and migration needs. The support of large files also is helpful. Structured and unstructured data files also a benefit. Moreover, since this is in the cloud, we don't have to have our own servers to host this.

IBM Aspera On Cloud is a solution used by our company to fulfill complex, bespoke file sets in excess of 300 GB. The business requirement is that we fulfill these packages in a single business day, globally. It's quite a challenge to do so in an industry where security is tight and connections are varied. The FASP Protocol in Aspera helps us meet our goals, both allowing us to turn around our workspace contents quickly, and offering the absolute fastest, safest connection possible. It meets both our stringent security standards and our speed requirements.

The organization I work for made the decision to purchase Aspera and have it integrated with a new Workflow Management system for their Graphics Department. As the Graphics Department was sending large files to different artist and project leaders, they required a very fast, reliable system that supported large files to be uploaded and downloaded with speed and with the integrity and quality of the file intact.
