We switched from Signiant to Aspera about a year and a half ago, and have much better reliability and simpler interface and better throughput. Everyone has been much happier, both our clients that transfer stuff to us and ourselves internally having to use it regularly.

Subject: [SSA-Discuss] Your favorite UDP packet blaster!
Good day folks,
Since the talk about FTP last week, I am doing some research into FTP and data transfer alternatives.
Aspera, Signiant, and FileCatalyst.
Who's got the best product, and the best pricing model?
Right now I am leaning towards Signiant as to its cheap, annual subscription and not pay per GB like Aspera, and Filecatalyst is licensed per your on prem link speed I.e 500mb, 1GB etc. Also Filecatalyst is a perpetual license so thats nice.
Would love to know everyone's thoughts.
Main thing we want to be able to accomplish is provide our clients\vendors a portal to retrieve and push files. We would love to not have to worry about "uploading".
We also would love to buy into a tech that would allow us to leverage our bandwidth to get data upto the cloud for some cloud rendering down the road, kinda like Aspera ATS.
I have looked at the UDT and other opensource UDP solutions and we do not have enough dev power to complete something that would be elegant to our vendors and clients.
