An Aspera Alternative That’s Easier to Use

MASV is an Aspera alternative that is as easy to use as email. In fact, we let you send large files as an email (or as a shareable download link). MASV’s intuitive and clean user-experience removes any technical complexities so anyone can get up and running quickly:

  • Easy drag-and-drop file and folder upload — up to 5 TB for a single file. MASV maintain’s folder trees so you don’t have to waste time zipping.
  • Even easier download for recipients. They don’t need a MASV account to receive files.
  • Effortless collaboration with MASV Teams. Create as many teams as you want and invite as many people to be a part of that team.

Each team account only requires a single payment method. Individual team members don’t need their own paid accounts to transfer files. We even keep an itemized log of every transfer (it’s a great way to bill transfer costs back to a client 😉).

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Aspera?
How does Aspera work?

IBM Aspera uses its own modified version of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) to deliver large files across a hybrid of cloud and on-premise servers. UDP is considered aggressively fast, so much so, that it is often blocked by IT firewalls for its tendency to soak up too much bandwidth and throttle others on the same shared network.

MASV is an Aspera alternative that leverages TCP rather than UDP, which makes it far less likely to be blocked by restrictive IT environments. TCP offers the same speed benefits of UDP with the added reliability of congestion control. And with MASV’s 300+ private servers located worlwide, there is very little distance between sender and recipient to ensure safe, reliable, and fast global transfers.

What is the best Aspera alternative?
