Cloud computing promises virtually unlimited, instant increases in compute, network, and storage resources, enabling digital media companies to scale their businesses on demand to unprecedented levels without prior investment. However, this promise is tempered by significant technology challenges in getting large media data to, from, and across the Cloud at long distances.
Until now, physical shipping was often the only practical option, and the full potential of the cloud to transform IT processes for digital media – such as transcoding, archiving and distributing entertainment content – has been limited by the bottleneck in moving the data.
Delivering on the promise of the cloud for digital media
Aspera, the innovator in high-speed data transfer software and creators of the fasp transport technology, will publicly unveil its Direct-to-S3 software products allowing high-speed secure transfer of large data, such as digital media, to and from S3, Amazon Web Services’ industry-standard cloud storage system.
Cloud pioneer Netflix will discuss how they are taking advantage of AWS for massively scalable transcoding, and are now using the Aspera Direct-to-S3 solution to ingest hundreds of terabytes of video titles.
Together, Aspera, Amazon Web Services and Zencoder, will describe how media companies large and small can now take full advantage of integrated media workflows at scale on AWS, to deliver on the promise of the cloud to transform their businesses.
Join us for this exciting and one-of-a-kind event to see what is now possible!
