Front Porch Digital’s LYNX Service To Power Ericsson Disaster Recovery
Front Porch Digital (Booths SU3602, SU3605) announced that Ericsson will use its LYNX cloud-based disaster-recovery (DR) and long-term asset-storage service as the foundation of its cost-effective disaster playout recovery solution. The solution will make it possible for any broadcaster to afford a redundant broadcasting system.
The solution will combine the LYNX cloud-based storage service with Ericsson’s disaster-recovery playout platform. Because of LYNX, multiple customers will be able to share the standardized recovery platform, reducing the cost significantly for each customer.
LYNX can ingest content from tape or as file-based media, and customers can either manage ingest and restore processes manually from supplied software or automate the processes in order to turn ingest and restore into invisible and seamless background tasks. LYNX provides inexpensive offsite replication of the content library with a dashboard view of the stored assets.
