cloud migration

The amount of digital content being produced by companies continues to grow at a staggering rate. For many companies, some or all of this data lives in the cloud. Companies depend upon their ability to get their data to and from the cloud quickly and easily. As the volume of data continues to grow, it has become increasingly important to be able to efficiently move this data wherever it needs to go – to, from, or in-between multiple cloud providers and regions.

While some companies have plans in place to keep their data in on-premises storage, many want to incorporate cloud storage and other services into their strategy. Migrating large data volumes to or from the cloud can be a disruptive process. If cloud storage is at the center of your company’s data workflow, you’ll need a dedicated file transfer application.

If you need cloud I/O for people, Media Shuttle is the fastest and easiest way to set up an out-of-the-box cloud ingest portal for end users. With Media Shuttle, people can migrate their cloud data or transfer large files to a variety of cloud structures and brands like Amazon Web Services and/or Microsoft Azure.
