Lights, Camera, Cloud: How The Cloud Could Change The Way We Store And Deliver Media

Dec 29, 2020

getty It’s no secret that media streaming platforms have become increasingly popular, especially as quarantine-driven binge-watching has skyrocketed. Netflix alone reported the addition of a record 15.77 million paid subscribers globally in the first quarter of 2020. U.S. consumers now have an average of  four different paid streaming services (download required), up from three before Covid-19. This spike in demand has generated more intense competition across the industry. The so-called “streaming wars” are well underway, and some of the world’s biggest entertainment and telecom companies like Disney (Disney+) and AT&T (HBO MAX) have taken bets on streaming entertainment with new subscription services. Deloitte predicts that “as major networks and studios continue to launch their own direct-to-consumer streaming services in 2020, competitors will likely scramble to offer content libraries broad enough to both attract and retain customers.”  This industry shift could create a strain for production companies as they scramble to meet this new form of delivery, which could force them to rethink their IT infrastructure, data storage and data management to keep pace with accelerated production times, robust media deliveries and increased content offerings. Enhancing Media Storage And Delivery Through The Cloud In my experience, the M&E industry has been slower to move to the cloud and adopt new technologies. In particular, data storage and archival is an incredibly challenging task for the industry as files must be secure, backed up in case of disaster and easily accessible. However, the Covid-19 pandemic is forcing many industries, including M&E, to evolve. MORE FOR YOU As the co-founder and CEO of a cloud storage company, I've seen that production companies need quick and easy access to data and content more than ever before — and what is beginning to seem like endless storage capacity. Premium content typically also requires large data files that can be accessed and delivered on-demand. So as production companies assess their IT storage infrastructure, they are faced with two primary issues. The first is increased file sizes due to the production of more high-definition content that is large, risky and time-consuming to share on disc. The second is the need for flexible and affordable file backup and archival. As a result, to manage their data in a scalable and efficient manner, M&E companies should consider moving away from the traditional legacy approach of using on-premises storage and toward the cloud — or multiple clouds. Production companies that need quick and easy access to their data (which most probably do these days) should leverage sustainable and flexible cloud solutions to streamline data storage and archival. This often takes the form of a multicloud approach that combines public and private clouds to avoid lock-in, minimize expenses and optimize performance. A multicloud approach offers many financial, operational and functional benefits to the M&E industry. It provides organizations with greater choice of cloud vendors, enabling them to use multiple providers to avoid vendor lock-in and enhance vendor leverage. With this, organizations can choose the cloud provider that specializes in whichever set of services best meet their needs. It also enables organizations to select the cloud option that offers the best price and performance for a certain set of capabilities or within a certain geography. Creating a multicloud strategy can empower organizations with more flexibility and choice. It can make data more accessible and manageable. A Distributed Hollywood In addition to the hurdles stemming from increased content and demand, the M&E industry is also facing geographic challenges. Hollywood is now distributed outside of California. Content and footage is shot all over the world, and as a result, there’s likely an increasing need to transfer and store data at different locations to ensure it is rapidly accessible to everyone on the team. Now, enter Covid-19. The pandemic brings an entirely new element to the equation, with even more distributed production teams and vital employees likely working from home. In this situation, storing data in the cloud is critical. While it is important for organizations to have the ability to store data locally, it can be very expensive and inconvenient to open multiple on-premises data centers in different locations. Moving data to the cloud enables organizations to run multitudes of data centers around the world due to its scale. Planning Your Move To The Cloud So, once you’ve decided to make the move to the cloud, what can you do to ensure success? Research. The best way to implement a successful cloud approach is to explore and consult multiple cloud options before making your selections to find the best fit for your needs. As the cloud industry has expanded, there are a number of storage provider options outside of the Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azures of the world. This also means that there is greater diversity in what cloud vendors have to offer in terms of IT service packages. Take the time upfront to thoroughly vet your options and determine which cloud provider is the most cost-effective and the best fit for your organization’s needs. Future-Proofing Success With The Cloud  The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is creating unimagined change and uncertainty in the M&E industry, both good and bad. While streaming platforms are currently booming, how long will it last? How much will the Covid-19 crisis impact production and the M&E market in general? One thing that I believe is here to stay is the continued popularity of streaming services. Media companies should brace for this new form of entertainment by planning their cloud strategy — and enabling a future that can remain sustainable and enable the industry to weather future disruptions and consumer shifts in demand.
