Introduces Attunity CloudBeam, a SaaS platform, to overcome the data transfer bottleneck in moving data to, from, and across cloud data centers
BURLINGTON, MA – July 23, 2012 - Attunity Ltd. (OTC BB: ATTUD), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that it has become an Amazon Web Services (AWS) partner and introduced Attunity CloudBeam, a software as a service (SaaS) platform designed to deliver high performance solutions for moving Big Data in, out and across AWS cloud data centers quickly and easily. The Attunity service, currently available for testing with AWS customers, is built to support business-critical initiatives, including disaster recovery and Big Data analytics.
Companies worldwide are adopting the cloud to store their data for business applications and to leverage predictive analytics to gain a competitive edge. However, many companies experience a bottleneck that impacts the quick and efficient transfer of data between the data center and the cloud or between cloud environments. This bottleneck prevents enterprises from moving large quantities of data fast enough to meet the needs of their business and capitalizing on the business value of cloud computing. Attunity’s new SaaS solution, Attunity CloudBeam, is designed to address this critical and growing market need with an elastic, high-performance, simple-to-use platform that empowers enterprises to transfer Big Data to, from, and between cloud environments in an efficient and timely manner.
“I am excited to announce that Attunity is now a partner of the leading cloud provider, Amazon Web Services,” declared Shimon Alon, Chairman and CEO at Attunity. “Attunity is well positioned to deliver a truly elastic, high-performance, and easy-to-use SaaS platform, Attunity CloudBeam, that meets the data transfer needs of Amazon Web Services and its customers. I am happy to report that Attunity CloudBeam is a direct result of our strategic acquisition of RepliWeb last year – allowing Attunity to increase its ability to penetrate both the Big Data and cloud markets.”
