S igniant, the market leader in intelligent
file movement, recently announced a
significant extension of the company’s cloud
portfolio with the introduction of Signiant
SkyDrop the first and only commercially
available hybrid SaaS solution that acceler-
ates the movement of big data and pro-
fessional media files into and out of cloud
storage. Unlike other acceleration offer-
ings, Signiant SkyDrop is a genuine cloud-
formed solution that leverages managed
cloud infrastructure, in contrast to software
that customers must deploy and manage.
Signiant SkyDrop offers the high transfer
speed, low operational overhead and scala-
bility that enterprises need to move even the
largest data sets into and out of cloud stor-
age. Workfl ows that require fast exchange
of fi les to and from cloud storage, including
active archiving, media processing and big
data analysis, can now be implemented
much more easily and cost-effectively.
