Technology has transformed the oil and gas industry by improving the capability to find, extract, and process data more efficiently than ever before.

These technology improvements have led to an explosion of data that in most cases still relies upon physical shipments of tape and hard drives.  Internet bandwidth has become more available worldwide, and when paired with the appropriate transport technology, data can be moved quickly and efficiently over the WAN.  

Aspera’s patented fasp™ (Fast, Adaptive, Secure, Protocol) transport technology can leverage existing WAN infrastructure to achieve speeds hundreds of times faster than traditional protocols such as FTP, while delivering end-to-end security, 100% reliability, and adaptive bandwidth control.

Join this webinar to learn how Aspera solutions are transforming the industry.  Aspera's CEO, Michelle Munson, will be joined by Greg Hess from Landmark to discuss Landmark's transformative cloud infrastructure combined with Aspera high speed data transfer technology.

In this session learn how FASP transport technology can leverage your existing infrastructure to:

  • Achieve speeds 100s of times faster than traditional protocols
  • Deliver end-to-end security for your systems
  • Ensure 100% reliability and adaptive bandwidth control
