Univa and Aspera to Collaborate on Cloud Computing Solutions

LISLE, Ill., April 20, 2010 -- Univa UD, a leading provider of cloud management software, announced today that Aspera Inc. and Univa will leverage both companies' technologies to deliver seamless, end-to-end private, public and hybrid cloud resource management and large bulk data transfer solutions for cloud computing customers.

"We're taking the concept of data mobility in the cloud to the next level," says Gary Tyreman, senior vice president of products and alliances at Univa UD.

Aspera develops breakthrough software transfer technologies to achieve optimal performance and cost savings using existing network infrastructure. Aspera's fasp technology enables Fortune 500 corporations, Hollywood studios, major broadcasters, life sciences organizations and government agencies to move terabytes of data on a daily basis as a core part of their business process.

"Having both Univa UD and Aspera's fasp as a combined solution brings cloud computing infinitely closer to the end user," says Diego Dugatkin, vice president of product management at Aspera. "We are looking forward to bringing cutting-edge cloud solutions to market with Univa."

Univa's leading product for private, public and hybrid cloud management, UniCloud, allows application users to manage physical and virtual infrastructures at scale and achieve an unprecedented level of application and data mobility.
