Aspera Product


Aspera offers a complete portfolio of client-server software solutions that enable individual users or automated business processes to access, manage, and move bulk file-data with the highest levels of performance when combined with high speed Symmetrix, CLARiiON, and Celerra Unified storage platforms.

Aspera maximizes efficiency and bandwidth investments through a patented protocol called fasp. fasp is specifically engineered to move bulk file data over distance. Aspera’s unique value proposition delivers fast, secure, reliable, and controllable access to file data over a metro, national, or global WAN.

Aspera enables user productivity and enterprise efficiency through client-server, client-storage, server-server, or storage-storage interactions, which can be an integral part of an adhoc or file-based workflow.

Silver Peak Replication Acceleration
With Silver Peak's replication acceleration, customers can protect 20X more data over existing WAN infrastructures. This delivers the following strategic benefits:

  • Meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPO)
  • Improve the reliability of offsite replication
  • Increase geographic distances between data centers
  • Lower disaster recovery costs by over 60%

Silver Peak’s Replication Acceleration works with SRDF/A and can accelerate any other IP-based protocol. The solution is delivered as virtual software (VX series or the VRX series) or as a standalone appliance (NX series).

Global Management System (GMS)
A platform for the deployment, management, and monitoring of a Silver Peak-enabled WAN, GMS gives detailed visibility into WAN performance statistics, application analysis, and tools for the configuration and management of Silver Peak NX Series appliances.
