Front Porch Digital and Nirvanix Partner to Enable Broadcasters, Post Houses and Film Studios to Leverage the Enterprise Cloud for Content Storage Management (CSM) and Digital Asset Management (DAM)
LAS VEGAS, April 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NAB SHOW -- Nirvanix, the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud storage services, and Front Porch Digital, the global leader in solutions that migrate, manage, and market media content, today announced that the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network has been integrated with Front Porch Digital's DIVASolutions software suite as a cloud archival and storage access solution.
DIVASolutions represents Front Porch Digital's unique and award-winning product range spanning solutions that migrate, manage and market media content.
The combination of Nirvanix and DIVASolutions automates multi-platform content distribution in an infinitely scalable, cost-effective enterprise cloud-based storage service.
"Rich media professional workflows using assets stored in the cloud are a key enabler to modern collaborative projects that can span continents and time zones. In addition, utilizing cloud-based assets for active media libraries allows remote content copies and provides disaster recovery," said Tom Coughlin, President of Coughlin Associates, a leading rich media research firm. "Combining digital asset management solutions such as Front Porch Digital's DIVASolutions with Nirvanix cloud storage should allow customers to achieve collaborative production efficiencies and faster set-ups than are possible with fixed, dedicated hardware."
"Business applications that ship with built-in cloud back-ends make it easier to adopt cloud storage across the enterprise and remove the rather costly and time-consuming process of cobbling together compatible systems," said Joe Martins, Managing Director of Information Management at storage consultancy Data Mobility Group. "Nirvanix is in a position to deliver fully integrated application-to-cloud solutions. The ultimate end-user experience is installing a key business application and having it 'just work' right out-of-the-box, much the way many of Apple's well-planned and engineered consumer products do. And that's exactly what Front Porch and Nirvanix have delivered today."
"The integration of DIVASolutions and the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network is just the beginning of a new strategic direction for Front Porch Digital," said Phil Jackson, Chief Marketing Officer, Front Porch Digital. "We see an increasing need for content distribution solutions within the enterprise and beyond. Media workflow can no longer be tied to local storage, our customers are demanding tightly integrated solutions for moving content securely around the globe to both further enhance internal collaboration, and better enable the complex business relationships that sustain the modern media enterprise."
"The integration of these two industry-leading solutions is an important move to address the specific workflow, storage and access requirements of film studios, post houses and broadcasters," said Scott Genereux, President & CEO, Nirvanix. "Our media and entertainment customers have some of the most substantial digital content repositories in terms of volume and usage in our Cloud Storage Network. Now an even greater number of companies will be able to leverage global cloud economics to optimize their IT environments and positively impact their business."
