Attunity CloudBeam enables reliable, affordable and high-performance Big Data replication for disaster recovery, backup and data distribution
BURLINGTON, MA – August 28, 2012 - Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that Attunity CloudBeam, its recently introduced high-performance SaaS platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS), has expanded its services to provide a new data replication-as-a-service solution for AWS' Simple Storage Service (S3). Currently available for testing, the service provides replication and synchronization of Big Data stored in S3 across AWS cloud regions to enable business-critical initiatives, including disaster recovery, backup and data distribution. The new Attunity CloudBeam service is designed to ensure that information availability in the cloud is quick, reliable, easy-to-use and affordable for AWS customers.
"Enterprises today are increasingly feeling constrained by traditional data management methods and as a result, are embracing the cloud for its scalability and affordability," explained Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies Inc., a cloud strategy consultancy, and founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace. "Organizations can properly configure cloud systems to be ready to go when needed, but never pay for any services until they’re actually used – a smart, cost-saving measure. Key benefits like these make data replication in the cloud a highly attractive and viable option for organizations today."
Automated, fully-managed, and ‘pay-as-you-use’, the new Attunity CloudBeam service for S3 efficiently replicates files and folders, and features:
Parallelized and elastic data transfer to maximize use of bandwidth
Configurable scheduling to ensure predictable information availability
High performance data transfer optimized to move large objects and large numbers of objects
Delta replication using comparative snapshot technology (CST) to minimize data that needs to be transferred
Fast set up with ‘Click-2-Replicate’ configuration, and no server or appliance setup required
“As a new member of the exclusive Amazon Partner Network, Attunity is proud to deliver this exciting new service as part of our continued dedication to enhancing our partnership with Amazon Web Services,” explained Matt Benati, VP Global Marketing at Attunity. “AWS customers have expressed strong interest in a data replication-as-a-service solution that is tightly integrated with S3 to enable high-performance data distribution, backup and disaster recovery affordably. This new Attunity CloudBeam service is designed to effectively meet customers’ Big Data replication requirements and its guaranteed delivery, elastic, high-performance platform and quick time-to-value make it a true stand out.”
