Attunity Readies Amazon S3 Replication Service

Attunity plans to offer a service that will let organizations synchronize and replicate data from their in-house servers to Amazon Web Services' S3 storage service. The offering, called Attunity CloudBeam, will also tie data from one AWS datacenter to another.

Best known for its database connectivity software, Attunity expanded its focus into Big Data replication with last year's acquisition RepliWeb, which developed the data transfer engine powering CloudBeam. Attunity announced a partnership with AWS in July and released for beta testing the CloudBeam service last week.

CloudBeam is targeted at those who want to use S3 for disaster recovery or for AWS customers wanting to ensure their data is available if a datacenter experiences an outage, said Matt Benati, Attunity's VP of global marketing. It's especially designed for those that are reluctant to use cloud services for production-level or business critical applications.

The service will be available in two forms: for those who want to replicate their servers to S3, administrators can download a thin-client that lets them map folders on a server to the target S3 resources. Attunity will also offer CloudBeam as a service, where a customer can establish replication between one AWS Availability Zone and another.

The company hopes to offer CloudBeam with other popular cloud services, Benati said. One likely candidate is Microsoft's Windows Azure service, he indicated, pointing to Attunity's existing relationship with the company.

Attunity hasn't disclosed pricing, though Benati said it will be aligned with Amazon's S3 cost models.
