Soda Data Management Software Now Available in AWS Marketplace
Los Angeles, Calif. – August 3rd, 2021 – As part of its continued commitment to streamlining the process of intelligent data transfers to and from the public cloud, Soda has made its enterprise software application and intelligent data management system available in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Soda is also included in the reference architectures including Media Supply Chain, Media2Cloud, and AWS Media Intelligence (AWS MI) solutions, which allows rich AWS media pipelines. With AWS Marketplace availability, purchasing Soda is easy and allows customers to manage and orchestrate their unstructured data in the cloud.
Soda data management works with on-premises and hybrid environments with support for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) storage tiers. Soda analyzes file storage to identify hot and cold data allowing the ability to move assets to the most cost-effective storage. Soda supports network-attached storage (NAS), object storage, and any storage visible on Windows, Linux, and Mac for seamless archive or data migrations. Furthermore, it tracks data movement by the user, group, and project allowing for easy billback and chargeback reporting. Finally, Soda supports data movement with cloud tagging for Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Machine Learning (ML) use cases.
“Our availability in AWS Marketplace provides our customers a simple way to purchase and deploy Soda, especially when working with the exponential growth of unstructured data in media and entertainment, life sciences, and other industries,” said Brian Morsch, Senior Vice President of sales and business development at Soda.
With a rich API, Soda is integrated into industry-leading Media Asset Management (MAM) platforms making self-service archive and restore jobs an easy task. With its unique cost and time “dry-run” feature, Soda manages the expectations of end-users and executives alike. Soda’s dynamic reporting engine illuminates the cost of projects by correlating relevant metadata tags and eliminating the guesswork and uncertainty of Opex cloud storage costs.
“Not only does Soda provide customers with an effective way of migrating data from their on-premises systems to the cloud, but it can easily move data on AWS or across the increasingly common multi-cloud environments. Soda is easy to set up and automates a traditionally complex exercise. Its predictive data analytics capabilities mean organizations gain insights identifying their hot and cold data and allowing them to make intelligent business decisions,” said Morsch.
“With the rapid growth of digital transformation resulting in an increase in the unstructured data created across industry verticals, organizations need to be in a position to manage better where their data is stored. As the world turns to cloud-based environments to manage this, it is critical to use a solution that provides the scalability, scope, affordability, and security to do so as effectively as possible. With Soda in AWS Marketplace, more of our customers can access this potential,” concluded Morsch.
Soda’s data management software is storage-agnostic and ecosystem-aware, providing companies with unprecedented visibility and clarity into their unstructured data. Soda eliminates hidden storage costs by using predictive analytics and user defined policies that intelligently and transparently move data across tiers and from cloud to core to edge for optimal data placement, peak performance, and maximum savings. Simple, Flat, and Fair Pricing™ and unmatched ease of use take the cost, complexity, and surprises out of managing data at any scale.
