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, Infrastructure Engineer - 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."

Lance Smith, Associate Director - Celgene

“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.”
