Afrostream Boosts Video on Demand Service With High-Speed Transfers From Aspera on IBM Cloud
Dec 15 15
IBM announced that Afrostream has deployed solutions from Aspera, an IBM company to speed content delivery to its cloud-based Video on Demand (VOD) platform. The solution unlocks the benefits of the IBM Cloud, streamlining Afrostream’s data-intensive workflow beginning with media uploads from studios and content providers through final distribution of African movies and TV shows for streaming by fans across the world. To gather quality entertainment for its customer base, Afrostream signed content deals with major studios and independent American, African and British distributors, which submit terabytes of digital content via Aspera to the company’s data center every day. By implementing Aspera On Demand, Afrostream has increased the volume of aggregated content to 1,000 hours per month. Once content lands on Afrostream’s storage on the SoftLayer infrastructure from IBM, files undergo processing, quality verification and transcoding into different formats for multiple devices before they’re finalized for streaming. The Aspera solution has reduced content turnaround times from three days to less than 12 hours, so the latest TV shows and movies are made available more quickly and reliably on Afrostream’s platform for streaming from fans’ preferred devices.
European Molecular Biology Laboratory Deploys Aspera to Support Collaborative Research Effort with High-Speed File Exchange
Oct 6 15
IBM announced that the European Molecular Biology Laboratory has deployed Aspera to facilitate collaboration between globally dispersed EMBL research units and partner organizations through the secure exchange of large research datasets. The solution reduces transfer times and improves reliability for EMBL, partners and researchers exchanging data. As Europe's laboratory for research in the life sciences, EMBL strives to enable scientists to collaborate closely between its five sites in four countries - the main laboratory in Germany, and outstations in France, Germany, Italy and the UK (EMBL-EBI) - and with partners throughout Europe and beyond. To enable researchers to access technology and specialist expertise, EMBL operates a network of core facilities, each dedicated to a specific subject, such as the Advanced Light Microscopy Core Facility, the Electron Microscopy Core Facility, or the Genomics Core Facility (GeneCore), which acts in the rapidly expanding field of next-generation sequencing (NGS). Researchers from across Europe and beyond who send GeneCore their biological samples for analysis benefit from faster turnaround times with Aspera transfers. As soon as EMBL receives a sample, they process and analyze it, index it with metadata and compile a comprehensive information package. The results are then delivered back to the organization at high speed using Aspera. The ever-increasing demand for and capacity of sequencing technologies mean that the amount of data being generated - and consequently the volume of data to transfer - is growing exponentially, making solutions like Aspera crucial.
Globecast Uses Aspera to Speed Global Content Submissions and Deliveries
Sep 9 15
IBM announced that Globecast has deployed high-speed file transfer solutions from Aspera. The technology has been deployed to further improve the speed and reliability of large media file submissions from global customers as well as deliveries to multiple worldwide distribution channels. To support the growing global demand for their services, Globecast initially deployed AsperaEnterprise Servers and Clients so broadcasters, studios, post-production houses and ad agencies could submit their large media files quickly and easily. Once ingested, content is edited, sent through quality control, adapted to comply with local regulations and delivered via Aspera for transmission by local cable or regional satellite providers.
