Signiant Flight is updated to operate on Amazon's AWS cloud.
Signiant has announced availability of Signiant Flight on AWS Marketplace, meaning AWS customers can now upload large files quickly to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) using Signiant Flight - and take advantage of direct billing to their AWS account.
"Signiant Flight is a leading offering for file acceleration, which many AWS customers depend on when moving large files to the cloud”, said Barry Russell, GM, Global Business Development, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services, AWS. “Media companies and other data-intensive businesses want cloud-native SaaS solutions like Signiant Flight, and its availability in AWS Marketplace adds another element of convenience."
The updated Signiant Flight offering takes advantage of the new AWS Marketplace SaaS Subscription functionality, allowing customers to use Flight on a pay-as-you-go basis. “Signiant Flight is our preferred option for uploading critical assets that our customers depend on to Amazon S3. Now, it is fully integrated with AWS Marketplace and we can pay for it on our AWS bill, we can optimize our business operations,” said Manuel Negre, Technical Account Manager at Novis Corp.
“The cloud is transforming how companies in media & entertainment and a variety of other industries are doing business– and they need an easier, faster and more reliable way to move big data into and out of cloud environments,” said Cory Bialowas, SVP of Product Management at Signiant. “These companies need immediate access to data and often don’t have the resources or expertise to configure and manage a cloud infrastructure. Signiant Flight helps solves these problems, ensuring enterprises have the scalability, flexibility, security and control they need, and today’s integration with AWS Marketplace makes purchasing Signiant Flight easier than ever.”
