As an AWS Partner, we offer both AWS DataSync and Storage Gateway services to our clients. AWS DataSync provides fast and efficient transfer of large-scale data between on-premises and AWS, while Storage Gateway enables file-based storage between on-premises and AWS. With these two services, our clients can easily move their data to the cloud, backup their on-premises applications, and enjoy near real-time data transfer with end-to-end encryption.
