accelerated cloud storage

Though many of today’s organizations recognize the advantages of cloud storage, the challenges posed by actually moving data and files – especially large ones – into the cloud can be prohibitive. Also, for those endeavors involving time-sensitive workflows, large scale ingest, and real-time analytics, speed of delivery can be a significant factor.

While it’s clear that the global production of digital content is growing exponentially, the strategy for storing that content is still a work in progress for many companies. So, where should this data live? And, how can we optimize storage to allow effective access and utilization of that data?

These questions were the catalyst for the creation of Signiant Flight – designed to enable accelerated cloud storage, and bridge the gaps that prohibit cloud-enhanced business. Flight is the first commercially available SaaS solution. It speeds the transfer of large media and data files to and from cloud storage, including Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure (with Google Cloud coming soon).

Unlike other accelerated cloud storage solutions, Flight leverages managed cloud infrastructure to enable a seamless, accelerated workflow with excellent transfer speeds, low operational overhead, and superior scalability to users – in one easy-to-implement, cost-effective solution.
