Overall Satisfaction with IBM Aspera on Cloud
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.

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.

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
