Aspera Introduces Aspera Drive and Faspex 4.0

2013 NAB SHOW, Booth SL9716—April 4, 2013— Aspera, Inc. (http://asperasoft.com/), creators of next-generation software technologies that move the world’s data at maximum speed, today announced the introduction and preview of a new file sharing experience that brings together the best of Aspera faspex (http://asperasoft.com/software/web-applications/faspextm/), Shares (http://asperasoft.com/software/web-applications/aspera-shares/), and Sync (http://asperasoft.com/software/synchronization/) technologies into a single unified platform for project-based file collaboration.

Unlike the myriad of “Drive”, “File Sync” and “File Sharing” services on today’s Internet, the Aspera platform allows for transfer and synchronization of files sets of any size and any number with maximum speed at any distance, with the full access control, privacy and security of Aspera technology. An innovative architecture allows for deploying on-premise, on the cloud, or a hybrid combination for complete flexibility.

This new experience, introduced as “Aspera Drive (http://asperasoft.com/whats-new-at-nab2013/product-previews/)” and “faspex 4.0 (http://asperasoft.com/whats-new-at-nab2013/product-previews/)”, brings remote file browsing, transfer, synchronization, and package sending and receiving fully integrated ino the Desktop, Browser and Mobile platforms with a natural project-based collaboration model.

Users enjoy maximum transfer speed, security, and distance-independent collaboration and can access and exchange “big data” with ease from their environment of choice. Aspera veterans will recognize how the user experience builds on Aspera Connect (http://asperasoft.com/software/transfer-clients/connect-web-browser-plug-in/), Cargo (http://asperasoft.com/software/transfer-clients/cargo/), Sync (http://asperasoft.com/software/synchronization/) and Mobile (http://asperasoft.com/software/mobile-apps/), and unifies Shares and faspex on the backend to achieve a revolutionary file sharing experience.

Aspera Drive – Desktop-based file sharing and collaboration

Aspera Drive brings together all transfer and synchronization paradigms of the new faspex 4.0 backend directly into the desktop file explorer:

· Users can browse their Projects and authorized Shares, and easily share files and directories of any size by drag and drop from the desktop to their Aspera Shares, right-click to sync a local folder with a Project, or right-click to send files and directories to other Project members and users as a faspex package.

· To receive new files to their desktop, users can subscribe and automatically receive faspex packages via their Inbox, Sync any new files in their Project Shares, or simply download new files by drag and drop from a remote Share to a local folder within their Drive view.

· With the new Aspera Drive for Mobile and faspex App for Mobile, iOS and Android users can browse their Projects and Shares, and upload and download files, or send and receive packages with email integration.

· Users can have one or more unique authenticated Drive accounts with each faspex provider supporting simultaneous access and collaboration concurrently within the same Aspera Drive installation.

Next-generation faspex - Web-based file sharing and collaboration

Faspex 4.0 is a web application tier that combines all of the file sharing and package sending capabilities of Aspera faspex and Shares, and deploys in conjunction with Aspera Enterprise Server(s) in the enterprise or on the cloud to power the Aspera Drive file-sharing ecosystem.

A new project-based approach combines users and user groups with file and directory resources (“Shares”) into project collaboration spaces. Projects can have custom metadata, with third party dropboxes for ingest of content and metadata, and custom branding by project, making it ideal for third-party file sharing, ingest and delivery.

· Users can browse their Projects and Shares, and transfer, send, or sync files and directories via Aspera Drive on the Desktop, faspex browser interface using the Aspera Connect browser plug-in, or from the mobile app - and recipients can immediately be notified of content availability via email.

· User management flexes across enterprise users and third parties with support for multiple directory services, federated authentication and single sign-on, and third-party invitations.

· Transfer policies such as bandwidth preferences, priorities, vlinks, and security settings can be configured by users, groups, and also by Project.

· The Aspera Node API has been extended to support Shares-based access control for browsing, transfer, and sync in addition to the existing API for faspex package sending, receiving and package info.

Drive and faspex Apps - Mobile file sharing and collaboration

The Aspera Drive and faspex 4.0 experience extends to the iOS and Android mobile platforms with full compatibility with the faspex Mobile App for iOS and for Android, and a new Aspera Drive for Mobile app that allows the user to browse Projects and Shares, and upload and download from their device using fasp.

Aspera will be demonstrating a preview of Aspera Drive and faspex 4.0 at NAB in the Aspera booth SL9716, and expects to make available a beta in Summer 2013.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
