Aspera Shares

Aspera Shares provides a simple and intuitive way for companies to share content in the form of files and directories, of any size, within their organization or with external customers and partners.

Easy-to-use Web Interface 
A single Web interface provides consolidated access and easy navigation across distributed files and folders. Users have powerful search capabilities to locate the files or folders they need, and initiate a high-speed file upload or download. Basic operations can be performed on a single file or folder, or on a collection of files and folders and all actions are logged and viewable in the activity feed.

Powerful security and access model
Administrators have granular control over which shares, directories and files each user can access, as well as the operations the user is allowed to perform. The security model is administered through a single management point combining authorization, user management, and access control.

Support for private, public and hybrid clouds 
As companies adopt the Cloud for on demand storage, they are often faced with the choice of where to place their most important digital content. With Aspera Shares, they have complete flexibility in where the content is placed. Whether it is stored in an existing datacenter, a remote office, or public cloud storage such as Amazon Web Services S3, Aspera Shares can consolidate all of the content and provide seamless access across all the nodes, hiding the physical location from the end user.
