Enable high-speed global sharing of virtually unlimited-size files and directories
IBM® Aspera® Shares is a simple, intuitive web application that enables globally dispersed internal and external users to quickly share large files and whole directories on servers located worldwide. Aspera Shares provides secure access to a consolidated directory view with a single web interface for all available data content stored on multiple server nodes across diverse infrastructures, including enterprise datacenters, public clouds and private clouds.
IBM Aspera Shares offers a:
- Consolidated and transparent content view to seamlessly manage file transfers across all nodes.
- Feature-rich, easy to use interface that provides intuitive, simple browsing across nodes, folders and files.
- Powerful security and access model provides administrators with control over the configuration settings for different Shares, directories and files.
- Highly scalable solution that offers a flexible multi-tier architecture and accommodates data stored in private, public or hybrid clouds or on premises.
Consolidated and transparent content view
- Enables deployment as a single server solution or a separate web application that can consolidate multiple server nodes into a single view.
- Allows management of user access and file transfers across all nodes while hiding the physical location from the user.
- Provides exceptional flexibility for where digital content is stored.
Feature-rich, easy to use interface
- Provides intuitive, easy-to-navigate browsing across nodes, folders and files.
- Supports direct drag-and-drop transfer among shares, allowing users to move files among globally distributed locations with ease and speed.
- Enables simple pause and resume for transfers.
- Provides powerful built-in search capabilities to easily and quickly find the right content.
Powerful security and access model
- Gives administrators a single point of control over which Shares, directories and files are visible or accessible.

Highly scalable solution
- Supports large, high-speed transfers of single files, individual directories, or batches of files and directories of virtually any size regardless of transfer distance.
- Provides greater flexibility and scalability with a multitiered architecture that decouples Aspera Shares from the content file stores and underlying transfer servers or nodes.
- Supports nodes deployed in private data centers, public or private clouds, or any combination, with a single web interface that consolidates all content.
