Advantages of Cloud Computing for Media & Entertainment Companies

Better reliability and scalability

Security has always been a key concern for the industry. In the past business leaders user to lean towards a private cloud model. However, with rising cost considerations, scalability issues, and improved cloud security a shift to hybrid models is available. These models are a combination of public and private cloud with private cloud handling the more sensitive data.

Access to better technologies

The cloud brings world-class technologies to smaller studios at a cost-effective price. Using enterprise-class technologies, smaller studios can effectively compete with larger studios. Moreover, you can deliver content that is compatible with multiple media tools. With real-time monitoring tools and historical analytics, information is available across the infrastructure for better collaboration.

Tapeless workflow

Tapeless workflow has been a positive business case that’s been buzzing in production and distribution markets from awhile now. Cloud computing brings the capabilities to make this model a reality, where everything in the media and marketing content creation cycle (from production to distribution) will be managed over the cloud.

Reduce data center footprint

As movies and programs consume tons gigabytes and terabytes of data, media corporations have to store huge volumes of data in the datacenter. Not every company has the required budget and expertise to setup the datacenter. Regardless of the size of the company, the cloud allows you to store large piles of data while enabling you to easily manage it. Not only does the cloud reduce datacenter footprint, it also reduces CapEx costs significantly.
