Use Case: Leverage Public Cloud
Use Case: The customer wants to leverage public cloud but is having challenges migrating data and apps to the cloud
Vail Use Case – Broadcast Group
To create an automated workflow that seamlessly utilizes cloud services such as transcoding, edit, playout and metadata stripping. Additionally, to create a common platform for all assets, making them available from anywhere, to anyone.
With over 100 sites spread across the nation, and with every station able to choose tools that work best for their station, a challenge of storing and managing content across sites was discovered. Cloud services and storage costs both began to rise, becoming cost multipliers in the overall workflow.
With Vail, this broadcast group was able to deliver a single media manager across all sites, accessed by thousands of users, in a future-proof S3 interface. Cloud-based workflow automation was achieved by storing high-resolution and raw video content locally, reducing costs. Vail was able to manage media and metadata (sidecar) as objects within a single name-space. Vail also automated site placement of data based on tags with staging, auto-caching, network optimization and direct site-to-site transfers. By only using AWS for cloud services and keeping HD and raw content locally, the cloud bill was reduced by over 70%.
