Dalet heads to cloud with DataDirect Networks
Dalet Digital Media Systems and DataDirect Networks (DDN) have introduced a new cloud-based archiving workflow comprised of Dalet Enterprise Edition and DataDirect Networks Web Object Scaler (WOS) platform. The integrated enterprise MAM/cloud storage system distributes archive media across multiple geographic locations, enabling accelerated production workflows and simple infrastructure management across globally distributed teams.
Flexible content management policies govern media replication from one geopgraphy to another while presenting a single media content namespace for users to easily access, process and archive media. “The Dalet/DDN integration takes sharing content to new levels. Every single piece of content that is archived in the system can be seamlessly made available to everyone across the organization, even if the content is spread across multiple sites,” comments Raoul Cospen, Director of Marketing, Dalet Digital Media Systems. “With full sync and archiving capabilities, broadcasters can consolidate their massive media libraries with cloud storage technology and use Dalet cataloguing tools to make it available in any location, whether content is housed in Hong Kong or Atlanta, Georgia.”
The cloud-based infrastructure offers a repository where broadcasters have instant access to media regardless of the volume, location or format. Dalet’s comprehensive metadata management capabilities facilitate content indexing and organisation, ensuring fast search and retrieval of content.
DataDirect Networks WOS is a cloud-based storage technology that simplifies and improves how media content is stored, distributed, and accessed across multiple geographically dispersed sites. From a single management interface, IT managers can build a global storage cloud that scales simply and limitlessly. With WOS, Dalet Enterprise Media Asset Management users can collaborate on content that can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
“The powerful combination of Dalet Enterprise Edition and WOS enables Broadcast organizations to focus on their core business, instead of the tedious tasks associated with storage engineering and management,” said Jeff Denworth, VP of Marketing for DataDirect Networks. “With WOS, media storage clouds can be quickly and easily setup, yet scale to multiple petabytes of information spread around the world.”
