The key to manifesting hybrid workflows for storage is the integration layer. Many organisations rely on 3rd party orchestration layer to synchronise the content between private and public cloud platforms. A media focused hybrid cloud workflow is designed to meet the challenges faced by organisations such as creating, ingesting, logging, editing, sharing, distributing and archiving video content. This includes high speed on premise workflows coupled with seamless synchronisation of content and metadata. Tight integrations and automated workflows ensure such organisations benefit from operational efficiencies and elastic scale of hybrid environments. Customers also benefit from integrated disaster recovery and business continuity provision.
Hybrid is set to become more and more popular over the coming months, as media companies begin to recognise the wealth of potential for streamlining workflows, flexibility and generating revenue. When accomplished correctly, and applied in a suitable manner, hybrid workflows have the ability to revolutionise the way that content is created, developed, shared and stored. Solutions are quickly coming together to provide seamless experiences for the users, removing the need for deep technical skills and allowing people to better spend their time. In particular we have witnessed technical partners working closer than ever before to provide joined up solutions that have truly interchangeable parts.
