SkyDrop hybrid SaaS solution 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.
