CloudSigma’s Public Cloud Propels Gorilla Technology’s Media Collaboration Services

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 collaboration services will provide media and broadcast organizations with a versatile cloud layer which bridges multiple non-linear editing systems such as those from AVID, Apple and Grass Valley so they can easily share digital content with production houses, media dubbing firms and other industry service providers.

Gorilla Technology will be deploying its 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 the flexibility and dynamic cloud resources that Gorilla Technology's customers need to allow easy transfer and sharing of broadcast-quality, high-resolution clips and metadata.

"Our customers work on demanding projects, usually across multiple sites, 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 U.S. and European customers. Combined with its high scalability, CloudSigma's global reach ensures that Gorilla Technologies can deliver both the resource and global reach that is required for 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."

Gorilla Technology is exhibiting at NAB 2013 at Booth N3739 and is highlighting its new media collaboration services. CloudSigma is exhibiting at Booth N-CP1 and is showcasing its public cloud IaaS environment for media service providers.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
Gartner is now treating algorithms like they are some kind of innovative addition to the modern digital discussion.

The bigger picture here is that software continues to improve, and enterprises are becoming increasingly software-driven, in part bec...
