Attunity Ltd., a provider of information availability software solutions, announced it has become an Amazon Web Services (AWS) partner and introduced Attunity CloudBeam, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed for moving Big Data in, out and across AWS cloud data centers.
The Attunity service, currently available for testing through AWS, is built to support business-critical initiatives, including disaster recovery and Big Data analytics.
According to the company, companies worldwide are adopting the cloud to store their data for business applications and to leverage predictive analytics to gain a competitive edge. However, many companies experience a bottleneck that impacts the quick and efficient transfer of data between the data center and the cloud or between cloud environments. This bottleneck prevents enterprises from moving large quantities of data fast enough to meet the needs of their business and capitalizing on the business value of cloud computing.
Shimon Alon, Chairman and CEO at Attunity, said Attunity is now a partner of the leading cloud provider and Attunity is well positioned to deliver a truly elastic, high-performance, and easy to use SaaS platform, Attunity CloudBeam, that meets the data transfer needs of Amazon Web Services and its customers. Attunity CloudBeam is a direct result of our strategic acquisition of RepliWeb last year – allowing Attunity to increase its ability to penetrate both the Big Data and cloud markets.
