Jabil speeds global collaboration with IBM Cloud

18 May 2016 Armonk - Jabil Circuit, a supply chain management and electronics manufacturing company, has deployed high-speed file transfer solutions from Aspera, an IBM company, running on the IBM Cloud to enable global users to send and exchange high-value design and engineering files quickly and reliably.

Jabil manages customers' supply chains from product development through design engineering to final manufacturing. As Jabil's business has grown, so too has its need for faster exchanges of increasingly larger design files - such as CAD models and circuit diagrams - with global customers, peers and partners in order to bring innovative products to market quickly, reliably and securely.

Jabil selected AsperafaspexOn Demand to simplify collaboration between geographically dispersed team members, partners and customers. Using Aspera, Jabil is able to transfer files of unlimited size and quantity, and even entire directory structures, with reliable delivery times and accurate transfer completion time estimates. On Jabil's most difficult production transfer, 124 GB worth of data spread across 3,400 files from several sub-folders was sent securely over the public Internet in less than 5 hours.

WithfaspexOn Demand, Jabil can utilize the one-step Direct-to-Cloud technology to improve the transfer speed of design files to and from IBM's Object Storage offering. By leveraging platform-specific features and Aspera’s patented FASP technology that is natively integrated into Object Storage APIs, users can effortlessly exchange files at high speed to other internal and external users.

The solution replaces their legacy MFT solution, which was costly, slow and impractical for the massive data sizes and volumes they required. In addition, the legacy solution limited transfer file size, which required the sender to split up and compress large files and folders before sending in pieces to recipients. This made the end-to-end process of sending large files and folders much more complex and time consuming.

"As a company dedicated to providing better, faster and cheaper services to our customers, we knew we needed a new solution more aligned with our service objectives", stated Dan Eng, Director of IT at Jabil. "We found the answer in Aspera. The solution's speed, security and ease of use enable us to provide quality service to our valued customers."

"The advantage of runningfaspexdeployed on the IBM Cloud is the unlimited scalability and flexibility offered by the integrated solutions, so Jabil can streamline their file exchange processes and enable global accessibility for effective collaboration on projects", stated Michelle Munson, CEO and co-founder of Aspera.
