Amazon S3 uploader

Large file uploads and downloads

Many businesses are now familiar with the benefits offered by Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) – user-friendly, cost-effective object storage, available from any web location. Still, Amazon S3 has its challenges – most notably, issues with latency experienced during attempts to transfer large files or data sets.

Though Amazon provides a few options for transferring data digitally, none of these really resolve the issue of transferring big data sets to the cloud when distance is involved. Which is why we’ve developed Signiant Flight – a hybrid SaaS solution, designed specifically to handle large file uploading. It integrates seamlessly with both Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure, to streamline large digital data transfers to and from cloud storage.
