Signiant, a leader in intelligent file movement software, announced the availability of a pre-built workflow that provides tight integration with the Microsoft Azure Media Services (AMS) platform. The automated workflow uses Signiant acceleration technology to transport content files quickly and securely from on-premises storage into Microsoft Azure, where AMS retrieves and processes the assets. The finished content is then returned to an on-premises location via Signiant.
"We're pleased to work with Signiant to extend the AMS ecosystem," said Sudheer Sirivara, General Manager, Azure Media & CDN. "Fast, secure upload and download of high-value digital assets is a key element in cloud-based media workflows, and Signiant's SaaS approach aligns well with customer needs for fast, easy deployment."
