Searching For A Simple Option…

Is “not” being IBM a selling point? We think so! FileCatalyst provides the same high performance and scalability that you get with IBM Aspera, but without the massive price points and … we’re not IBM. With FileCatalyst, you are dealing with a company that is large enough to serve enterprise customers, but still small enough that we can react to your needs. If you are looking for an accelerated file transfer solution that can do everything Aspera can, but is reasonably priced, and has customer support that actually cares, then you have come to the right place.

Key Differences


Don’t get lost in the overwhelming enterprise catalogue of budget busting IBM prices and upgrade fees. FileCatalyst has multiple licensing options that are suitable for small, medium, and enterprise-scale businesses. Our prices are actually reasonable and are suitable for both short and long term projects.


FileCatalyst solutions are simple to install and maintain, yet have the same performance, security and scalability of IBM Aspera. FileCatalyst has only 3 main product groups that perform the same tasks as up to 15 Aspera applications. Best of all, with FileCatalyst, you are up and running in about 15-20 minutes.


Getting support for an IBM product is an exercise in futility. You need to jump through hoops just to talk to an actual person. Once you do get through, there is a good chance they won’t know much beyond the basics. In comparison, FileCatalyst support is easy to contact, knowledgeable and typically resolves most issues the same day.
