Attunity Announces Commercial Availability of Attunity CloudBeam File Transfer Services for Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

BURLINGTON, MA – Attunity Ltd., a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today the commercial availability of two Attunity CloudBeam 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.

“Attunity CloudBeam helps customers – from media companies to high tech and more – deliver on the promise of Big Data,” explained Matt Benati, VP Global Marketing at Attunity. “Our solution is designed to eliminate data transfer bottlenecks with its unique ability to handle high-capacity, high-volume data with high performance and parallelized data delivery streaming ? technology which combats low bandwidth line challenges. Using these newly-available services, we believe organizations can enjoy automatic replication of on-premises Big Data, files and folders ? to and from AWS S3 data repositories, as part of a continuously-managed process that includes auditing for security and compliance purposes.”
