Signiant Jet vs. Resilio

Across the media & entertainment industry Signiant is well-known as the market leader in intelligent file transfer. The world’s top media brands including Disney, NFL, NBCU, Xbox, BBC and more rely on Signiant to move content across their supply chains and will often recommend Signiant to their partners for content deliveries.

Why the M&E Industry Chooses Signiant

While Resilio is focused on syncing storage systems, the Signiant Platform includes Media Shuttle for person-initiated sending and sharing of files and Jet for automated transfers. Wherever content needs to flow – between people, across systems, with partners or to and from the cloud – the Signiant Platform has it covered.

Speed and Reliability

Speed and Reliability 

All Signiant products include proprietary transport technology that can move any size file over any IP network at speeds up to hundred times faster than traditional methods. Signiant works with all file sizes, including folders with millions of smaller files – common in VFX workflows. All Signiant products include checkpoint restart, which resumes any interrupted transfer automatically from the point of failure. One look at the ResilioSync subreddit quickly highlights some of the challenges Resilio customers face with reliability issues.

Pricing and Packaging

Pricing and Packaging

With a Signiant subscription, you get unlimited transfers without file size limits when you connect to on-prem storage, and plenty of cloud payload when using cloud storage. Resilio charges based on users and the amount of storage you connect, which can add up. When you’re working with big files and huge data stores, the costs can quickly get out of hand.

Beyond File Transfer

Beyond File Transfer

Signiant Jet is a top-performing product for automated transfers between partners, systems and the cloud, but the Signiant Platform as a whole gives media companies access to additional features beyond fast file transfer. Signiant customers can access additional platform features such as Media Engine to search, preview, and interact with media assets across all of their storage, and Media Shuttle to create portals for different teams, projects, and locations. Resilio is focused on synching files across storage systems, so if you’re working with media assets across intricate supply chains with multiple storage locations, partners and people, you’ll want to take a look at the Signiant Platform.
