Cloud Data Transfer

Introduction to Cloud Data Transfer

Today's enterprises have a variety of reasons for replicating or migrating data from on-premises systems to cloud platforms. Common use cases for cloud data transfer include data migrations and cloud-based analytics. While the use cases are diverse, a common theme for too many businesses is that cloud initiatives fall short of expectations due to the challenges and complexities of implementing bulk and/or real-time cloud data transfer. These challenges are exacerbated when organizations wish to transfer data from a variety of source systems to multiple target cloud platforms.

To accelerate and ensure a positive return on cloud initiatives, enterprises need a way to make cloud data transfer fast, affordable and reliable.
