Ooyala Flex Media Platform presents new features to better control cloud costs
Dalet, a provider of solutions and services for media-rich organizations, has announced Ooyala Flex Media Platform new features designed to meet the needs of global program delivery with focus on better control over budgets.
New, under-the-hood Kubernetes capabilities automatically scale cloud computing use for proxy creation and file movement, helping customers optimize cloud costs while having the firepower to manage larger-than-normal content volumes when needed. In addition to the significant cost savings through dynamic autoscaling, customers can set job concurrency quotas and scaling thresholds, keeping a much tighter control over cloud costs.
In addition, Ooyala Flex can now manage and distribute IMF packages, eliminating the need to create multiple versions of a content package. Customers can significantly reduce storage space and optimize management of common projects such as programs distributed globally in various languages and non-standard viewing formats required by licensees and OTT services. With less physical resources required, customers can deliver multi-version programs faster.
“Today, more than ever, the cloud plays a critical role for our customers and the viability of their business. But they need more than the ability to leverage its computing power, they need better control over how and when to use it,” states Lee McMullan, Market Director – Multiplatform Distribution, Dalet. “Ooyala Flex’s new capabilities provide the functions, security and elasticity customers need with simple, yet powerful administration tools that allow them to expand their creative productions while getting better control over unpredictable cloud costs.”
The new Ooyala Flex Media Platform capabilities are now available.
