Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ CM: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today the commercial availability of two
services - a file replication service and a managed file transfer service for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3). Successfully emerged from public beta, both services offer high-performance and fully-managed secure data transfer capabilities that are designed to move Big Data to and from on-premises data centers and the AWS S3 cloud quickly, reliably and affordably for AWS customers.
Attunity CloudBeam is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that moves data to, from and between cloud environments. Its on-premises to cloud file replication service, tightly integrated with S3, provides an affordable solution for file replication and synchronization of files and folders between data centers and S3. Through this service, business-critical initiatives including disaster recovery, backup and data distribution are enabled. Similarly, the managed file transfer service uploads files with acceleration and security to AWS S3, providing automated, fully-audited, and recoverable file transfers to support business intelligence/ analytics, archiving and content availability.
"Even with its clear advantages, cloud storage can still present challenges to users - particularly when it comes to Big Data," explained
Paul Burns, Principal Analyst at Neovise, an independent research firm focused on cloud computing
. "Existing methods for moving Big Data to, from and between clouds are often slow, expensive and/or unreliable. Neovise recommends that AWS customers consider Attunity CloudBeam as a more powerful alternative over existing options for loading and synchronizing data to, from and between AWS S3 regions, as well as for loading data to Amazon Redshift."
In addition to today's commercially-available services, Attunity CloudBeam also provides other capabilities for customer preview, including data replication to Amazon Redshift.
