Web Hosting NewsRedwood City, CA – CloudOpt™, experts in WAN optimization for the cloud, today announced that Speed-as-a-Service™, the innovative service that delivers the most cost effective and easy to use data acceleration solution for the cloud, is now available on Google Compute Engine, US Region. Running on Google Compute Engine, CloudOpt dramatically accelerates the movement of data to or from the Google Cloud Platform. Speed-as-a-Service has helped customers reduce data transfer times and costs by up to 90%.

Delivered as a service, costly and complex hardware or software appliances are no longer necessary. Deployable in minutes, Speed-as-Service enables Google Compute Platform users to significantly enhance cloud application access and data movement. By reducing the amount of data transferred, bandwidth charges are significantly reduced. Gigabytes of data can now be moved to/from the Google Cloud Platform at a fraction of the cost and time that users are experiencing today.

Accelerating large transfers of data into and out of the cloud, Speed-as-a-Service is an ideal solution for:

  • Near real time replication of databases across regions
  • Fast Big Data uploads to the cloud
  • Full daily backups to the cloud
  • Rapid restoration of cloud backup data
  • Migrating applications with large databases to Google Compute Platform.

Requiring no networking expertise, Speed-as-a-Service is accessed using an easy to install Windows or Linux client. The CloudOpt client intercepts data destined for addresses in Google Compute Engine; establishes a secure and encrypted connection to the Speed-as-a-Service network in the requested region; applies compression, deduplication, and protocol optimizations; and then delivers the data to its original destination within Google Compute Platform. Speed-as-a-Service remembers what data has been sent and does not resend data in subsequent transfers, which can result in over 90% improvement in transfer times.

“With Google’s scale and expertise we expect Google Compute Engine to become one of the leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service providers,” said Dave Burow, CEO of CloudOpt.

CloudOpt is offering users a free 15-day trial. This free trial can be accessed at
