Overall Satisfaction with IBM Aspera on Cloud

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.
  • 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.
  • I would like more easily scriptable workflow support - perhaps some Python libraries?
  • Email notifications when data quotas have been reached
  • I would like to see the price difference between Standard and Advanced come down.
  • Positive impact: we are able to satisfy the requirements of clients who reside in India and China
  • Positive impact: we are able to deliver files to tight deadlines
  • Positive impact: we will be able to automate workflows in the future
IBM Aspera on Cloud is well suited to deliver files across global distances--especially where workflows involve data being used by different workforces due to economic circumstances. For example, if you work in Post Production, you might use it for transferring digital film plates to be worked on by your cheaper workforce overseas.
