Aspera Launches On-Demand High Performance File Transfer to Amazon Web Services

October 14, 2009 by  

Hosting Blog EMERYVILLE, Calif. – Aspera Inc. today announced the immediate availability of Aspera On-Demand, high-speed file transfer software that enables users to rapidly transfer large file data to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Aspera’s fasp™ technology enables Fortune 500 corporations, Hollywood studios, major broadcasters, life sciences organizations and government agencies to move terabytes of data on a daily basis to AWS.

With Aspera On-demand for AWS, users have the freedom to transfer files at their full bandwidth capacity with the assurance that content will be transported and stored reliably and securely. Aspera’s bandwidth control allows users to automatically protect other IP traffic on their WAN link and apply relative prioritization to individual file transfers.

“We continue to see a great number of customers working with extremely large datasets in the Amazon Web Services infrastructure,” said Steve Rabuchin, general manager of developer relations and business development for Amazon Web Services. “Many of these customers are already using Aspera’s data transfer technology within their own data centers and we are pleased that they are now able to leverage that same technology to move data into and out of Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3.”

Particularly useful for data-intensive applications – such as video transcoding, media asset management, 3D animation and visual effects rendering, genomic sequence processing, large database hosting and more – Aspera On-demand for AWS will benefit any workflow involving data transfers to and from the cloud, and between remote infrastructures. As an example, users will be able to transfer tens to hundreds of gigabytes per hour to AWS, from any global location.

“Over the past few months, our customers have been increasingly asking about how Aspera software could further enable their cloud strategy,” said Michelle Munson, Aspera president and co-founder. “By offering Aspera’s high-performance file transfer technology as an on-demand option for AWS users, our goal is to enable organizations to use their existing tools to move large datasets into AWS.”
