“We’re seeing upwards of 500 megabits per second of throughput up to the cloud, which, depending on some variables, is an incredible improvement above just standard FTP or HTTP.” A transfer of a one-hour DNxHD video file that could take 10 hours over FTP, now completes in less than 26 minutes using Aspera. On top of high-speed transfers, Aspera’s patented fasp transfer technology encrypts files in transit and at rest, assuring bulletproof security for business-critical content.
