All rights reserved Any unauthorized distribution or reproduction strictly prohibited The Challenges of Cloud Storage in M&E The size and scale of the data is immense! Security concerns are deep rooted Where is my data actually stored? Transition from proven on-premises to services solutions Are the economic benefits tangible and can risk be mitigated Network and bandwidth challenges Immature and non-domain specific solutions Internal bureaucracy and legacy mindset shifts Exit strategy Domain knowledge and expertise is imperative!

All rights reserved Any unauthorized distribution or reproduction strictly prohibited The Challenges of Cloud Storage in M&E Many formats are used in many different ways (news, post, transmission, web, etc.) Direct device integration (editors, video servers, etc.) is key Economically feasible scalability – content demands will grow! Media enterprise-wide content connectivity enables collaboration and further monetization Redundancy and content protection is imperative Sharing across workflow silos requires features such as device integration, transcoding, timecode based partial restore, desktop browsing, etc. Simple (dumb) storage is simply not enough in these complex environments...

All rights reserved Any unauthorized distribution or reproduction strictly prohibited The Industry Today – CSM Most media companies around the globe have made the transition to file based in whole or in part Content Storage Management (CSM) are a breed of solutions which are at the heart of these media-centric file-based infrastructures CSM is the middleware which resides between any devices which produces/consumes file-based content and commodity IT-centric storage CSM solutions are content-aware, object-based intelligent archive solutions CSM solutions typically rely on spinning disk along with an infinitely scalable data tape storage archives (better TCO, greener, more secure, scalable, high performance, etc.) CSM solutions have direct integration with business systems to fundamentally link processes, resources and metadata with the file-based content repository CSM solutions include content aware features such as direct device integration, in-path transcoding, timecode partial restore, asset analytics, etc.

Amazon, Microsoft and many others offer scalable cloud-based storage services Obvious benefits include reduced capital costs and high availability via globally distributed data centres Unfortunately these solutions are not tuned for big data and do not offer much more than simple object storage CSM is key to M&E storage applications as content awareness and domain knowledge are paramount Intelligent CSM as a Service (CSMaaS) solutions are now available for a fraction of the cost of IT-centric offerings Lets look at an example

Our Lynx CSM as a Service (CSMaaS) is less than 20% the cost of Amazon S3 with all the benefits of CSM
