Signiant Flight: Azure uploader
Microsoft Azure blob storage is an attractive, cost-effective solution for data storage, and providing user access to cloud services. Still, if you’ll be transferring large files or data sets, uploading to and from Azure can be a real challenge. While Azure does provide options for transferring data, unless your physical location is in close proximity to a Microsoft data center, standard methods are slow and unreliable.
Azure’s developers have chosen to focus on providing excellent cloud storage – whereas Signiant focuses our expertise on large file transfer protocol. Which is why we make excellent partners.
Introducing Signiant Flight – an Azure-friendly uploader which provides load balancing and auto-scaling benefits (just like those available with Amazon S3 storage). Azure support in Flight enables all the capabilities you’d expect – including checkpoint restarts, and fast transfers of large files and data sets — but also provides additional security and permissioning features not available with Azure alone.
