IBM Aspera Alternative with ¼ of the cost

MASV is an Aspera alternative, just as fast but only costs $0.25 per GB and doesn’t require any software or browser extensions.

Unsatisfied with Aspera’s high prices and lack of flexibility, Apache jumped ship to MASV for all their large file transfer needs.

“MASV is file transfer without all the stuff that makes file transfer painful.”

Best Aspera Alternative with No Time-Consuming Setup Or Plugins To Install

There’s no firewall tweaking necessary with MASV: Since it’s TCP-based and not UDP-based, it’s far less likely to be blocked by restrictive IT environments. When you use MASV, you have the opting of sending and receiving files in your browser, or using the lightweight desktop app. We’ll never force you to download software or install browser extensions to use MASV. 

MASV Send Large Files

MASV Is Way Easier To Use as an Aspera Alternative

MASV’s browser-based software is just as easy to use as email, if not easier. If you can send an email, you can send a file with MASV with no training or support. Anyone can get up and running quickly since MASV’s intuitive workflows remove technical complexities that can cause delays in software like Aspera.

And with MASV, your recipients don’t even need to log in, making it the best Aspera Alternative.

Be More Competitive By Only Paying For What You Use

Forget about costly monthly subscriptions: pay-as-you-go pricing is a big reason why MASV is popular with small- and medium-sized businesses and freelancers.

“I was really sold on the pay as you use it model. This is very attractive to us as we never know how much data we will use or what method the client will want to use to deliver the files. So having the ability to say we can send big files fast but it will cost you x amount is great!”
