  5. 5 Creating next-generation transport technologies that move the world’s digital assets at maximum speed, regardless of file size, transfer distance and network conditions. OUR MISSION
  6. MARKET /INDUSTRY TRENDS 6 Big Data Explosion • Exponential growth in data sizes • Mix of file sizes—but larger files becoming the norm, 4K media files on the horizon ? Diversity of IP Networks—Media, Bandwidth Rates, and Conditions • Variable bandwidth rates (slow to super-fast) • Bandwidth rates increasing—costs decreasing • Network media remains diverse (terrestrial, satellite, wireless) • Conditions vary—all networks prone to degradation over distance Global Workflows—moving files and Big Data over WANs • Teams are increasingly geographically dispersed, increased offshoring • Over distance, network conditions degrade • Contemporary TCP acceleration solutions not designed for big data transfer and replication Cloud Computing Grows Up • More choices: IBM SoftLayer, AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google, OpenStack • No longer a niche – Netflix (transcoding), MTV (global video distribution), BGI (genomic sequencing)
  8. Distance degrades conditions on all networks • Latency (or Round Trip Times) increase • Packet losses increase • Fast networks just as prone to degradation TCP performance degrades with distance • Throughput bottleneck becomes more severe with increased latency and packet loss , • The path between 2 end points is never a straight line ? TCP does not scale with bandwidth • TCP designed for low bandwidth in 1970’s • Adding more bandwidth does not improve throughput Alternative Technologies • TCP-based - Network latency and packet loss must be low • Modified TCP – Improves TCP performance but insufficient for fast networks • UDP traffic blasters - Inefficient and waste bandwidth • Data caching - Inappropriate for many large file transfer workflows • Data compression - Time consuming and impractical for certain file types • CDNs & co-lo build outs - High overhead and expensive to scale 8 CHALLENGES WITH TCP AND ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGIES The TCP Bottleneck
  9. Maximum transfer speed • Optimal end-to-end throughput efficiency • Transfer performance scales with bandwidth independent of transfer distance and resilient to packet loss Congestion Avoidance and Policy Control • Automatic, full utilization of available bandwidth • On-the-fly prioritization and bandwidth allocation Uncompromising security and reliability • Secure, user/endpoint authentication • AES-128 cryptography in transit and at-rest Scalable management, monitoring and control • Real-time progress, performance and bandwidth utilization • Detailed transfer history, logging, and manifest Low Overhead • Less than 0.1% overhead on 30% packet loss • High performance with large files or large sets of small files Resulting in • Transfers up to thousands of times faster than FTP • Precise and predictable transfer times • Extreme scalability (concurrency and throughput) 9 THE SOLUTION: FASP™ FASP Overview
  10. 10 FASP® – PERFORMANCE BREAKTHROUGH • FASP transfer speeds are not affected by distance • Performance scales linearly as bandwidth increases • Equally supports large files and large sets of small files Benchmark Resources
  11. 11 EASY TO PROVE
  12. FASP® – MANAGEMENT WITH ADAPTIVE RATE CONTROL Extraordinary bandwidth control • Automatic, full utilization of available bandwidth • Protection of other network traffic with “fair” policy • Allows “bursts” in TCP traffic and reclaims unused bandwidth as it as it becomes available Real-time prioritization of transfers • Highly-concurrent transfer stacking • On-the-fly, per flow, user and job prioritization • Concurrent transfers adjust bandwidth consumption on the fly, allocating available bandwidth based on transfer priority System-wide monitoring and reporting • Real-time progress and performance analysis • Real-time bandwidth utilization • Detailed transfer history, logging and manifest 12 FASP Summary

  17. Aspera for Microsoft SharePoint © 2014 IBM Corporation 17 Aspera for Microsoft SharePoint © 2014 IBM Corporation 17 Every day, SharePoint users are challenged… UPLOADING … to transfer large files and data sets… to collaborate with global colleagues… to adopt new workflows… …assuming that they even try You deserve to never struggle again
  18. Aspera for Microsoft SharePoint © 2014 IBM Corporation 18 A macro-level view of SharePoint’s challenging future The number of SharePoint licenses shipped as reported by Microsoft1. However, low rates of user engagement and adoption (~50%) diminish the value. A key source of SharePoint dissatisfaction is the painfully slow and unpredictable transfer speeds of large files and data sets over distance by distributed groups of users. Limited125 Million Slow SharePoint has file size and storage limits that restricts its use. This concerns IT as the projected amount of data created and copied annually is doubling in size every two years and by 2020 will measure 44 zetabytes.2 SpeedScale Size 1 2 2014 EMC Digital Universe Study with data and analysis by IDC, April 2014 - Key Takeaway • Enterprise IT can benefit greatly by improving SharePoint, which has ~80% market penetration in Fortune 500 companies Key Takeaway • User experience and collaboration could be improved considerably by simply improving transfer speeds to save users time Key Takeaway • File size and storage limits are becoming increasingly problematic as file sizes and volumes grow at an accelerated rate Many enterprises are significantly invested in SharePoint, but widespread adoption an emerging use cases are often hindered
