Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you’ve ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you’ve experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with their software. Autodesk successfully migrated over 700 terabytes of data from their on-premises Dell EMC Data Domain storage system to Amazon S3, and did it swiftly and effortlessly using AWS DataSync.
"Our petabyte scale data migration journey from on-premises to AWS was accomplished swiftly with minimal effort and was completely self-managed with AWS DataSync. This solution is a game changer!"
Satish Kumar, Engineering Manager - Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure - Autodesk Inc
Celgene Corporation is an integrated global pharmaceutical company engaged primarily in the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative therapies for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases through gene and protein regulation.
"A big challenge that we face is the integration of the wet labs with the computational aspect of our research. We use Storage Gateway and DataSync to synchronize our on-premise wet labs with our Amazon storage. By having our scientists immediately be able to save their files directly to the cloud, they can go on with the next experiment without having to wait for the transfer times and they never run out of space."

"We have genome sequencers running daily and need to transfer files a minimum of two times each day from on premises to Amazon S3 in an accelerated and efficient manner, in order for us to analyze and process the sequencer data in AWS. AWS DataSync serves this purpose perfectly as we are able to easily schedule and automate the file transfer process, avoiding the need for costly commercial transfer tools. In addition to moving the sequencing data to the cloud for analysis, we also use DataSync for a number of other projects and needs: to migrate active data to AWS, to transfer data to the cloud in order to securely share data with external collaborators, and to create an additional copy of our invaluable data in the cloud for business continuity. DataSync provides us with highly performant, reliable, and secure data transfer capabilities that we require in order to help solve the world’s biggest health challenges.”

Deluxe, a world-leading video creation and distribution company, is working with AWS to digitally transform their movie business. Deluxe wanted to speed up their media distribution process and improve data security while also reducing costs and eliminating errors. Their Digital Cinema Network uses AWS Snowcone to connect the space-constrained movie theater environment to content stored in Amazon S3, and uses AWS DataSync to accelerate online distribution of movies and advertising to theaters in 38 key media markets worldwide. This solution allows Deluxe to reduce reliance on error-prone, costly, and manual media distribution, while improving data security. It also enables their studio and theater customers to respond faster to local market preferences so they can increase their revenue streams.
“Our work with AWS is a fundamental part of Deluxe’s strategy. One VZN is a leap in innovation for digital cinema distribution which has been stagnant in the past decade, fundamentally changing not only the economics of film distribution for exhibitors and studios around the globe, but enabling new theatrical experiences for viewers as well. The combination of AWS Snowcone, AWS DataSync, and Amazon S3 are essential to One VZN – the collective services distinguish themselves from any other cloud offerings today. The secure, compact AWS Snowcone device, in conjunction with Deluxe’s powerful One platform creates a truly differentiated solution of the industry.”
Andy Shenkler, Chief Product & Technology Officer of Deluxe
FORMULA 1 racing began in 1950 and is the world’s most prestigious motor racing competition, as well as the world’s most popular annual sporting series.
“We at FORMULA 1 used both AWS DataSync and AWS Storage Gateway services to provide disaster recovery for various data streams. We used AWS DataSync to implement a DR solution for our raw video archive. We chose AWS DataSync as it allows us to sync our current data, totaling 400 TB, to Amazon S3 in a way we could control and it enables us to keep any new data in sync. With AWS DataSync we were able to provide DR by syncing data from our on-premises file server to Amazon S3 at an average of 4 TB per day, and did so with encryption during transfer and at rest. The settings and controls provided by AWS DataSync allow us to control when and how much data we want to sync without harming any other workloads."

Santos is one of the leading independent oil and gas producers in the Asia-Pacific region, supplying the energy needs of homes, businesses, and major industries across Australia and Asia.
“Prior to learning about AWS DataSync, I had spent over a month creating, testing, and iterating on new scripts to get our backup files into Amazon S3. These scripts needed to be deployed on all of our servers, and were difficult to centrally manage. By transitioning to DataSync, I was able to simplify and automate my backup management. Apart from its simplicity, DataSync also provided additional functionality, such as monitoring and error checking, that was quite valuable. It took less than one hour of my time to set up and get going, and we use DataSync every night to transfer 5 – 50 TB of data, which is roughly 3,000 files. For the task that I needed it for, DataSync was absolutely spot on.”
Gavin Boyce, Cloud Solution Architect - Santos
