cloud data storage

Cloud data storage is a service that allows data to be maintained, managed and backed up remotely – while remaining accessible to users via a web interface or network access.

There are two types of cloud data storage:

  • Public storage services, such as Amazon S3, provide multi-tenant storage environments suitable for unstructured data;
  • And private storage services designed to meet the needs of customers who require more data control or customization.

But, unless you’re colocated next to your cloud storage data center, moving large amounts of data is very difficult using standard methods. Signiant specializes in developing flexible, scalable large file transfer solutions, and has partnered with cloud data storage providers such as Amazon and Microsoft to bring Signiant Flight. Flight enables the upload and download of large files, offering a combination of public and private services, designed to meet the needs of our enterprise users in one convenient, easy-to-implement SaaS solution. And it integrates seamlessly with AWS (S3 and Glacier) and Microsoft Azure (with Google Cloud coming soon) so your business connects with your platform of choice.

Our years of focus and expertise have revealed the need for accessible, application-agnostic solutions for cloud data storage, capable of scalable customization.

    Three ways the Baseball Hall of Fame explains tiered storage strategy using Amazon S3 and Glacier

    With the annual Amazon re:Invent conference upon us, I’ve noticed how much this physical experience, or any major museum experience for that matter, is similar to a digital tiered storage strategy. Tiered storage strategies help you govern and provide access to digital content or data sets quickly for Big Data analytics or perhaps nearline data for trending analysis with S3 and deeper archives like Glacier.
