Industries and enterprises are seeking ways to take advantage of the benefits of emerging Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud capabilities, but there are still significant technology and financial hurdles for workflows that rely on movement and storage of data sets larger than 100 GBytes. Moving 5 TB of data can take 14 hours or more - who has that kind of time?
Whether your objective is to implement geo-redundant storage strategies, support follow-the-sun creative workflows, or create simple backup facilities, PixMover Cloud™ is the fastest, easiest, and most economical tool to help you achieve your goals.
PixMover Cloud™ incorporates Pixspan's intelligent file handling technology to optimize the cost and speed of the Cloud for your application. Transfers from 100 GBytes to multiple Petabytes for every file type and size are supported across all AWS Regions.
Unprecedented Speed and Performance
As deadlines approach, you can rely on PixMover Cloud™ to buy you that extra time needed to complete the job. Cloud transfer speeds can now be measured in seconds and minutes, not hours and days.
Intuitive User Interface
PixMover Cloud™ puts complex operations at your fingertips with easy and intuitive controls. AWS S3 buckets can be configured in an instant, requiring just a few fields to be entered.
Copying from one S3 bucket to another is as simple as dragging and dropping folders within the file tree panes. In just minutes you can start a transfer job and then verify the successful transfer across S3s.
Markets and Use Cases
Media and Entertainment Sector and Image Intensive Enterprises: PixMover Cloud™ is a vital component for the migration of Media and Entertainment workflows to the Cloud. Pixspan enables moving high-resolution video and images in the cloud, rapidly across the globe:
- Allowing you to take advantage of the cloud’s elastic storage model, moving the storage where you need it as quickly as possible
- Scaling to Petabytes as needed
Not only does PixMover Cloud™ accelerate data transfers between AWS S3 buckets by 10 to 20 times or more, but with the addition of Pixspan's Bit Exact Round Trip™ Acceleration, PixMover Cloud™ multiplies these transfer speeds by an additional 2X to 5X for full resolution image formats including: TIFF, GeoTIFF, OpenEXR, DPX, Cineon, PPM, SGI, DICOM, and various Camera Raw formats. This enables any enterprise working with full resolution image files to quickly free up storage, and realize perfect bit exact transfers at speeds never imagined before.
One prominent content producer needed to deliver tens of Terabytes of masters with a season’s worth of made-for-TV episodes to a cloud-based studio. The problem was that half was in cloud storage on the East Coast, half on the West Coast. With PixMover Cloud™, the content producer was able to transfer the files cross-country rapidly and deliver the multi-million-dollar package in two hours, versus over a day with current methods.
Government: The government is increasingly using the Cloud to aggregate data, including video and images, for storage and analysis. In many cases, this data is being used to support our warfighters and intelligence analysts. PixMover Cloud™ can deliver these files to where they are needed in the cloud 10 times faster than otherwise available, enabling data to be presented within minutes rather than hours for highly time-sensitive decisions.
Data Back Up: Organizations are moving their Data Back Up to the cloud for a variety of reasons, including the security of geographic diversity, the flexibility and affordability of unlimited storage, and ongoing access to their data. Even more vital than backing up data is the ability to rapidly recover your data to its original location. Using PixMover Cloud you could restore 80 Terabytes of files in one day, versus about three weeks with existing standard cloud transfer methods, making restoration impractical.
How PixMover Cloud Works
The following diagram illustrates how PixMover Cloud™ performs a copy between S3 buckets in two different regions, us-east and us-west. PixMover Cloud™ supports any file type and size (within AWS S3 limits).
How PixMover Cloud with Bit Exact Round Trip™ Acceleration Works
Pixspan’s intelligent file handling allows certain files to benefit from even faster speeds with Bit Exact Round Trip™ Acceleration. These include the largest full-resolution files, such as DPX, TIFF, EXR, PPM, ARRI, and DICOM, among others. Pixspan reduces these files in size for 50% to 80% savings in speed and storage (in their smaller PXZ format as shown in the diagrams), then returns them to their perfect bit-for-bit original files when desired.
