September 25, 2013 by  

Web Hosting ServicesRedwood City, CA – CloudOpt™, experts in WAN optimization for the cloud, today announced Speed-as-a-Service™, the innovative service that delivers the most cost-effective and easy to use data acceleration solution for the cloud, has expanded availability to Amazon Web Services (AWS) US West (both Northern California and Oregon) and European Union (EU) Regions. Initially launched in Amazon’s most popular region, US East, Speed-as-a-Service has helped AWS customers reduce data transfer times and costs by up to 90%.

Deployable in minutes, Speed-as-Service enables AWS users to significantly enhance cloud application access and data movement. Gigabytes of data can now be moved to/from the AWS cloud at a fraction of the cost and time that users are experiencing today. By reducing the amount of data transferred, bandwidth charges are significantly reduced. CloudOpt’s service enables large data transfers into and out of the cloud such as:

Rapid restoration of cloud backup data
Near real time replication of databases across regions
Full daily backups to the cloud
Fast Big Data uploads to the cloud.

Speed-as-a-Service is accessed using an easy to install Windows or Linux client that requires no networking expertise. Delivered as a service, costly and complex hardware or software appliances are no longer necessary.

“CloudOpt is committed to reducing the cost and time spent moving data to and from the cloud,” said Dave Burow, CEO of CloudOpt. “Look for us to continue to expand our cloud footprint in response to customer demand.”

CloudOpt is offering AWS users a free 15-day trial. This free trial can be accessed at

About Speed-as-a-Service
Speed-as-a-Service™ helps companies dramatically accelerate the movement of data to and from the cloud. This innovative service delivers the most cost-effective and easy to use data acceleration solution for the cloud and has helped customers reduce data transfer times and costs by up to 90%. The CloudOpt client intercepts data destined for addresses in Amazon S3 or EC2; establishes a secure and encrypted connection to the Speed-as-a-Service network in the requested region; applies compression, deduplication, and protocol optimizations; and then delivers the data to its original destination within Amazon S3 or EC2. Speed-as-a-Service remembers what data has been sent and does not resend data in subsequent transfers, which can result in over 90% improvement in transfer times.
