Eight Solutions Signs Master Reseller Agreement With JB&A for Cumul8:Jetstream High Speed File Transfer Platform to Accelerate Sales in the Media & Entertainment Industry and Others
Vancouver, BC, March 27, 2018 – Eight Solutions Inc. (TSXV:ES) (“Eight Solutions” or the “Company”), a technology company on a mission to make data easy, today announced an agreement with JB&A to resell the Cumul8:Jetstream high speed file transfer platform in the US effective immediately.
A leader in the field of Video and Content Management, JB&A is dedicated to bringing the most innovative and complete solutions to market through a network of over 400 value added resellers in the Media & Entertainment industry. With the addition of Jetstream to their product portfolio, JB&A can now offer their customers a high performing and cost effective solution for accelerated file transfer.
“When studios, production companies, and other organizations in the Media & Entertainment space need technology solutions, they turn to JB&A,” says Nicholas Smith, Director of Technology at JB&A. “And we turned to Jetstream when we were looking to add a high speed data transfer solution to our product suite. Along with meeting all the requirements for speed, reliability, and security, Jetstream has an intuitive user interface that will be so easy for our customers to learn and use. I expect great things from Jetstream.”
Jetstream was developed by a group of technologists at Eight Solutions with roots in the entertainment and gaming industries. Having worked on Hollywood blockbusters and world-renowned video game franchises, the team built their own high speed file transfer solution when other systems on the market could not meet their needs. The resulting platform, Jetstream, has been battle-tested by power users transferring thousands of film shots and several terabytes of data daily.
According to Michael Devine, Executive Vice President at Eight Solutions, “Our partnership with JB&A is a major milestone. With hundreds of distributors in Media & Entertainment and many more channel partners in other industries, JB&A will help us open new markets for Jetstream. We’re excited to work with the technology and distribution experts at JB&A to grow Jetstream sales.”
