Aspera Software Available Via EMC Select Program

Aspera, creators of next-generation software technologies that move the world's digital assets at maximum speed, has announced that its core transfer client, server and management software product line is now available through EMC Select, a program which helps customers easily acquire components that comprise an information infrastructure.
Aspera software offers large productivity gains in the enterprise through the ability to access, manage and move large volumes of bulk data over global wide area networks (WANs) at unprecedented speeds and with extraordinary bandwidth control.
At the core of all Aspera products is the patented asp protocol, which handles all file transfers with the highest levels of performance and delivers full bandwidth utilisation regardless of transfer distance and network conditions, unprecedented policy-based bandwidth control, as well as uncompromising data security and reliability. fasp is built upon a flexible, lightweight, embeddable and highly scalable software-only architecture.
Aspera software is capable of exceeding the WAN transfer performance and scalability limits of traditional CIFS and NFS protocols in network-attached storage (NAS) environments.
On Linux and Windows platforms, this NAS limitation can be addressed by using EMC Celerra with MPFS (Multi-Path File System). MPFS delivers high-performance read and write I/O of high-speed Aspera file transfers by using iSCSI or fibre channel protocols to directly access the backend storage subsystem.
In joint performance testing using Aspera software and EMC Celerra MPFS, large, multi-gigabyte files and data sets were transferred at 3 gbps over global WANs with worst-case internet conditions (300 milliseconds round-trip time and 5% packet loss) - this is over 1,000 times the speed of TCP-based transport protocols, such as FTP, HTTP, scp or sync under the same conditions.
Running in conjunction with EMC Celerra, EMC CLARiiON and EMC Symmetrix storage systems, Aspera enables the following; data-moving applications to work at global distances over commodity IP networks: file transfer to, from and between cloud computing nodes, data collaboration and sharing, high-performance computing, user access to centralised storage, FTP replacement, data management, migration, synchronisation, replication, disaster/recovery and more.
The Aspera Enterprise Server is a universal file transfer server for gathering and serving up files, directories and large data sets. The Aspera Connect Server adds a web front end to the Aspera Enterprise Server and provides browser plug-in client architecture, making it the ideal solution for web applications and large user collaboration. The Aspera Client and Point-to-Point desktop applications allow for transfer initiation and automation with Aspera servers.
Aspera Console is a web-based network-wide transfer management and monitoring interface; providing centralised control and visibility over a wide array of Aspera transfer nodes. All products can be run standalone or integrated into third-party applications or products using the asp SDK, a comprehensive software development kit providing web services, embedded native library and browser-based APIs.
Matt Mainstruck, Manager of the EMC Select Program, said: "Aspera software seamlessly integrates with the EMC storage portfolio. Aspera's asp WAN performance truly complements the benefits of EMC storage. We are excited to welcome Aspera to EMC Select."
Michelle Munson, Aspera President and Co-Founder, said: "Working with EMC, we can offer ultra-high speed file transfer and storage solutions that are capable of delivering unprecedented multi-gbps movement of large data over global, wide area networks. For customers in many industries, this is a game-changing proposition, allowing them to move terabytes around the world in minutes, rather than days."
Aspera client and server software solutions can be easily deployed on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux or Unix platforms.
The following Aspera products are available immediately through EMC Select: Aspera Client, Aspera Point-to-Point, Aspera Enterprise Server, Aspera Connect Server and Aspera Console.
