BURLINGTON, MA, Nov. 28 – Attunity Ltd., a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today the official launch and commercial availability of Attunity CloudBeam, a fully-managed data transfer SaaS platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3). With its beta successfully completed, the high-performance and secure data transfer solution will be unveiled and demonstrated live at the AWS re: Invent Customer and Partner Conference from November 27-29 in Las Vegas, NV.
Attunity CloudBeam is designed to move data to, from and between cloud environments quickly, reliably and affordably for AWS customers. Commercially-available services include:
In addition to the above commercially-available services, Attunity CloudBeam provides the following services in beta:
"A few years ago, enterprises were skeptical about adopting cloud technology due to security concerns," explained Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies Inc., a cloud strategy consultancy, and founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace. "Since then, vendors have addressed concerns head-on by including state-of-the art security technology as part of the SaaS platform. There are now legions of successful enterprise cloud customers worldwide and the market continues to expand. Increasingly, companies are learning that platforms like Attunity CloudBeam can help extend and significantly scale their data center operations to meet Big Data demands more efficiently and affordably in the cloud."
“Attunity is honored to be a part of the Amazon Partner Network and we are excited to help customers deliver on the promise of Big Data,” explained Matt Benati, VP Global Marketing at Attunity. “Attunity CloudBeam is designed to support many important initiatives including BI/analytics, content availability, disaster recovery, backup and archive. One of the most interesting use cases we have seen so far during beta is of a customer using our solution for content distribution. This content distributor has been testing Attunity CloudBeam to load videos multiple times per day on a global scale. Data volumes for this service are expected to reach 20 terabytes per month and are managed in combination with AWS S3 so the company’s local offices can easily access and deliver it. Simply put, Attunity moves the data that moves today’s business.”

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
