Attunity CloudBeam Launches on Amazon with Cloud Services
Attunity is bringing its CloudBeam managed SaaS platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS) out of the private beta phase and into public beta. It's not quite ready for official launch, but now that the company has launched the public beta, it is bringing out two high-performance data movement services — upload to cloud and replication between cloud regions.
"Attunity CloudBeam helps users realize the promise of cloud computing by alleviating the Big Data bottleneck and infrastructure maintenance challenges," said Matt Benati, vice president of Global Marketing, in a prepared statement.
Attunity first announced CloudBeam back in July when it brought the private beta to customers for testing. CloudBeam was designed to be simple cloud service providing high-performance solutions for moving Big Data in, out and across AWS cloud data centers as quickly and easily as possible.
In supporting business-critical initiatives such as business intelligence and analytics, disaster recovery, backup, archive and content availability, CloudBeam is moving ahead toward becoming a service available to Attunity's customers. At the same time, the company is launching three new CloudBeam services in private beta — managed file transfer to cloud, file replication to cloud, and upload to cloud automation application.
The company's overall goal is to provide customers with more automation, acceleration of moving very large files to and from the cloud, manageability to full manage cloud data movement, guaranteed and recoverable file transfers, encryption of all transfers and affordable subscription-based services that enable customers to pay per usage.
Managing Big Data with cloud services is becoming more critically important to a variety of customers, and according to Attunity, CloudBeam is aimed at customers that need mission-critical apps such as business analytics and disaster recovery related to Big Data. It's for environments where being able to access and move Big Data around as quickly as possible is a necessity.
