CloudSigma’s Flexible Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Provides Scalability and Geographic Reach for Gorilla’s Dynamic Cloud-Based Services for the Broadcast and Media Industries
NAB – Las Vegas, NV – April 9, 2013- CloudSigma, an international, customer-centric, pure-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, today announced that Gorilla Technology Group a leading provider of workflow solutions for the media and broadcast industry, is launching its new media collaboration services in CloudSigma’s public cloud. Taking advantage of CloudSigma’s rapid scaling capability, flexible deployment model and strategic geographic presence, Gorilla Technology’s end-to-end digital workflow solution will provide media and broadcast organizations with a versatile cloud layer in which they can easily share digital content with production houses, media dubbing firms and other industry service providers.
Gorilla Technology will be deploying its content sharing and collaboration platform as part of CloudSigma’ s Media Services Ecosystem, launched one year ago to address the specific needs of media industry service providers and production companies. Service providers like Gorilla Technology have to meet rapidly escalating content demands within an increasingly global industry, including the long-distance exchange of high-resolution files that can easily reach terabytes, if not petabytes. CloudSigma’s public cloud, with its high scalability, 40 GigE networking and on-demand resource provisioning, provides Gorilla Technology the flexible and dynamic cloud resources it needs to allow easy transfer and sharing of its customers’ broadcast-quality, high-resolution clips and metadata.
“Our customers work on demanding projects, with very large and complex files, for widely varying periods of time, so we need a way to rapidly scale and accommodate their content demands, wherever and whenever they occur,” said Dr. Spincer Koh, Gorilla Technology Group CEO. “CloudSigma’s cloud infrastructure gives us that flexibility, so we can provide a service that facilitates production collaboration for the scale of the project that is required.”
Since launching in April 2012, CloudSigma’s Media Services Ecosystem has more than doubled in size. CloudSigma’s already extensive and rapidly growing presence in North America and Europe gives Gorilla Technology easy access to its largely U.S. and European customer base Combined with its high scalability, CloudSigma’s global reach guarantees that Gorilla Technologies can eliminate both the resource and geographic constraints of effective digital media collaboration.
“Our approach to IaaS is very customer-centric, because we’ve made an effort to listen and understand the needs of different public cloud customers,” said Robert Jenkins, CloudSigma CEO.
“For instance, the Media Services Ecosystem is a direct response to the pain points of our media service provider customers. In the past, companies would literally fly tapes from one production house to another, but that’s simply not practical when you’re dealing with petabytes of data in a global industry. For collaboration in today’s media industry to work, the effective use of public cloud infrastructure is absolutely essential.”
