CloudOpt Launches Data Acceleration Service for AWS in Sao Paulo, Brazil

CloudOpt, experts in WAN optimization for the cloud, has announced that its data acceleration solution for the cloud, Speed-as-a-Service, has expanded availability to Amazon Web Services (AWS) South America East Region serving South and Central America.

cloud-hostingAlready available in Amazon’s US East, US West, European Union, Asia Pacific Sydney, Singapore, and Tokyo regions, CloudOpt has expanded to the South America Region in response to growing market demand.

In South America cloud hosting based applications can be challenging to deploy as data must often be transmitted over long distances and over slow transmission lines resulting in high latency and poor application performance. Additionally the cost for international bandwidth in South America is over four times the cost in the United States. With the availability of CloudOpt’s Speed-as-a-Service in AWS’ Sao Paolo Region companies can easily overcome these barriers to moving applications to the cloud.

Accelerating large transfers of data into and out of the cloud, Speed-as-a-Service would be good solution for:

  • Reducing bandwidth charges
  • Full daily backups to the cloud
  • Rapid restoration of cloud backup data
  • Near real time replication of databases across regions
  • Maintaining response times when moving applications to AWS.

“As South American companies move backup and other applications to the cloud, Speed-as-a-Service can significantly reduce data transfer costs and dramatically improve performance,” said Dave Burow, CEO of CloudOpt.

By reducing the amount of data transferred, bandwidth charges are significantly reduced. Gigabytes of data can be moved to/from the Amazon cloud at a fraction of the cost and time that users are experiencing today.

CloudOpt’s Speed-as-a-Service is available on AWS and Windows Azure and can be deployed on popular IaaS clouds such as Google Compute Engine, Rackspace Open Cloud or in on-premise data centers.
