High-Speed Transfer Server for IBM Cloud Private 

IBM Aspera has released its flagship High-Speed Transfer Server for IBM Cloud Private (ICP). At a push of a button, a highly available, self-healing cluster of Aspera transfer servers can be provisioned within ICP. This release has rearchitected Aspera’s transfer server into modern microservices that leverage Dockerization and Helm provisioning. You can now move data rapidly and securely into and out of ICP environments. The Aspera transfer cluster for ICP can also optionally be tethered to the Aspera on Cloud SaaS to provide web applications for data delivery and distribution and to enable data movement across any cloud environment (both public and private clouds).

Use cases for Aspera for ICP

Journey to cloud

Aspera is the perfect companion on your journey to the cloud. Due to the wide swing of workload complexity, most enterprises use a blended strategy of bare-metal machines, virtual machines, public cloud, and private clouds. Aspera delivers support in all of these environments to provide a consistent experience to transport and secure your data, regardless of your environment and where your data resides. Because of this consistency and reliability, many enterprises and industries have standardized on using Aspera for their data transport needs.

Application modernization

Containers, Kubernetes, and microservices are proven to deliver speed and simplicity, and they are being adopted rapidly. Use Aspera to take the data your legacy applications depend on and transfer it efficiently and securely to your modernized microservices and containerized versions of those applications.

Traditional transfer technologies bridging these environments are slow and unreliable, and physical disk shipments between them are time-consuming and expose data to unnecessary security risks. IBM Aspera overcomes the data transfer challenges of the hybrid cloud by allowing companies to securely and reliably move big data across on-premise and multi-cloud environments at unrivaled speeds. The IBM Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server for ICP is the fastest way to transfer, exchange, and deliver data from any location to anywhere with anyone.

Workload migrations

While the cloud offers many benefits, moving your data to the cloud can be challenging. Traditional transfer software technologies are slow and unreliable, and shipping physical disk storage is time-consuming and exposes your data to unnecessary security risks. Aspera offers high-speed data transfer that uses the public internet to securely and reliably migrate large amounts of data to, from, or between any major cloud.
