Aspera Ships Enhanced Versions of Sync and Console
LONDON --(Business Wire)--
Aspera (News - Alert), Inc., (http://www.asperasoft.com/)
creators of next-generation software technologies that move the world's
large data at maximum speed today announced the immediate availability
of Aspera Sync (http://asperasoft.com/software/synchronization/)
1.4 and Aspera Console (http://asperasoft.com/software/automation-management/aspera-console/)
1.7, delivering a complete end-to-end solution for high-performance
synchronization and replication of today's largest big data file
stores-from millions of individual files to the largest file sizes.
Aspera Sync 1.4
Aspera Sync is purpose-built by Aspera for high-performance, scalable,
asynchronous file replication and synchronization. With Aspera fasp (http://asperasoft.com/technology/transport/fasp/)™
high-speed transport and an innovative fast snapshot technology, Aspera
Sync solves the fundamental bottlenecks of rSync over the WAN, and
supports the most common enterprise-class use cases such as offsite
replication for disaster recovery, content distribution and collection,
file archiving and storage, and full system migration.
New features include:
Centralized reporting and management in Console - The latest release
includes full integration with Aspera Console 1.7 for global
visibility into Sync sessions and activity across the entire network
providing real-time reports on synchronization progress, per file
status and throughput. Sync sessions can be paused and resumed, and
bandwidth priority and speed can be modified on the fly from the
centralized Console web interface.
Advanced file handling - In addition to rich include and exclude
filters, Aspera Sync offers full support for soft and hard links,
options for the preservation of access time, user and group IDs, and
support for configurable user and group ID for the target system.
File-level de-duplication - Duplicate files on the source system are
identified and Aspera Sync instructs the target system to create a
hard link rather than resending the fle eliminating unnecessary
transfers, reducing sync times and reducing storage use.
Universal support for virtual iNode - Support for virtual iNodes in
file systems that do not have constant iNodes, improving file system
Expanded platform support - Aspera Sync now supports Mac OSX and
Solaris, in addition to Windows and Linux.
Aspera Console 1.7
The latest version of Aspera Console centrally manages all Aspera
transfers across cloud, on-premise and hybrid deployments. Additional
features and capabilities include:
Performance improvements for Hot Folders management - A major set of
enhancements dramatically improves Console's performance when used to
manage large sets of Hot Folders.
Support for Active Directory - Console's integration with Active
Directory enables single sign-on for Active Directory groups and
users, creating a more unified and consolidated security environment
Integration with iTunes Transporter - Operators can now configure the
Transporter host as an Aspera transfer node so that its transfers can
be monitored and managed from Console.
Advanced user auditing - New capability for auditing users' activity
enhances security by enabling Console administrators to track logins
and logouts, failed login attempts, session timeouts and concurrent
New report templates - Console's collection of pre-defined report
templates has been expanded to include additional reports for
bandwidth usage by user, node and peak usage.
