Signiant Extends Manager+Agents To The Cloud

Manager+Agents workflows are now extended to users of Signiant Media Shuttle, its cloud-native SaaS offer. Via Media Shuttle’s new automation API, system-to-person workflows can now be created to directly link automated Manager+Agents deliveries to individuals.

Signiant showcased the company's newly patented, standards-based transport architecture for Flight, a cloud-native, auto-scaling cloud upload utility at IBC 2017.

Claimed as unique, this technology accelerates any HTTP-based transfer and is capable of delivering data to the cloud at multiple gigabits per second. When used in conjunction with Manager+Agents transfers to the cloud and transfers between on-premises storage locations are managed identically. This, says Signiant, means that the Manager can provide full visibility of all transfers, and advanced functionality, such as resource control, can be applied. The result, it says, is the ability to seamlessly manage data transfers in a hybrid cloud deployment from one central console.
