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.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
