Aspera announced the immediate availability of the latest version of its core high-speed transfer products (fasp) and SDK, for both on-premise and Aspera On Demand cloud-based subscription service.
Support for passing an arbitrarily large number of individual source items to an ascp transfer session allows all Aspera client and plug-in products, ascp command line usage, and third-party SDK usage to pass billions of unique individual files and directories to a fasp session for transfer.
It also has the ability to uniquely rename each source item at the destination and to secure the session with the Aspera token authorization independent of number of items.
The high-speed direct-to-cloud transport is now enhanced with fully integrated support for browsing and transfer with Aspera On Demand servers for Microsoft Azure and Azure Blob storage. Multiple features in the new a3 transfer binary allow for line speed transfers of even small files through the new inline metadata transmission and multi-I/O architecture, and incorporate fast inline compression.
The latest version of Aspera's Multi Language Connect 3.1 Web browser plug-in now supports simplified Chinese, Japanese, French, and Spanish in addition to English. The transfer plug-in automatically sets the language based on the system's language settings and is fully compatible with the Connect 3.0 APIs for embedding fasp transport in modern Web apps and all Aspera Web applications.
A major new release of Aspera's SDK, version 3.1, is now available on the Aspera Developer Network. The faspmanager SDK for embedding Aspera fasp client and server capability in third-party applications has new Java and .NET versions that support all Aspera ascp options of the fasp 3 generation.
The new faspex 3.0 automation API for creating and sending new packages, querying status, and discovering and downloading new items via the faspex REST API is also available.
