Wiredrive Enhances Service to Deliver Lightning Fast Upload Speeds to Customers Worldwide

MARINA DEL REY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/13 -- Wiredrive, the leader in cloud media sharing for advertising, production and marketing teams, announced enhancements to its media assets management service today that increase file transfer speeds by up to 11x, making it one of the fastest file transfer and collaboration services in the marketplace today. The enhancements are available immediately to all of its customers at no additional cost.

Wiredrive confirmed that updates to its network increase user upload speeds by an average of 6x in North America and Europe, with some areas like London (11x) and New York (9x) experiencing far greater improvements. Other major cities tested include Tokyo at 6x, Sao Paulo at 6x and Sydney at 5x. Wiredrive upload speeds were verified in a study by Gomez, the web performance measurement division of Compuware.

The new upload speeds provide exceptional value for creative teams working with large HD video files. More than 75% of Wiredrive's current customer base is involved in creation, production, post-production and asset management for advertising agencies, with the remainder spread across the consumer products and entertainment industries.

Wiredrive's new upload speeds are made possible by hardware and software-based network enhancements that connect all Wiredrive clients directly to the company's secure, private datacenter in California, bypassing bottlenecks and traffic jams typical on shared networks.

"In practical terms, Wiredrive's new upload speeds are giving us huge, huge improvements in workflow efficiency," said Zoë Hoeltzel, Production Manager, Wieden + Kennedy. "On our medium-to-high volume days we upload upwards of 75 - 100 GB of media files from around the world. In our initial tests of Wiredrive's network enhancements, we experienced upload speeds nearly 5x faster than previously. Quicker upload times mean fewer backlogs, and fewer backlogs means less stress for those doing the uploading and those waiting patiently for media files to arrive."

"We made these enhancements to our network to anticipate the needs of today's creative professionals. HD media production places unusual demands on marketing and production teams to share huge files quickly among remote teams of collaborators," said Taylor Tyng, Co-President and Chief Product Officer, Wiredrive. "Our priority is to simplify the logistics of creativity for teams working in HD and large file formats by making it easy to transfer assets in the cloud. Wiredrive's faster upload speeds strengthen its position as the simplest, most elegant solution for sharing, collaborating and storing media."

Accounts for Wiredrive's cloud based production management and library service allow unlimited users and projects within any account. Pricing is determined by storage needs.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
