An everything-online approach challenges the traditional paradigms for storage, with new requirements for intelligent data management and access. As work and workflows become distributed, the way organizations evaluate tier 2 storage is shifting. What we have all learned recently is the importance of making sure everything you create is online, searchable and accessible. I call this the ‘everything-online’ approach. This approach is challenging the standard “speeds-and-feeds” and “cheap-and-deep” paradigms for storage, and is introducing new requirements for intelligent data management and access. Let’s take a deeper dive into what that means and how this impacts your ability to keep everything online.
How do organizations procure workflow software at an enterprise-level scale? With varying needs and an evolving technological landscape, the task seems impossible. In our presentation Appify then Personalize, we explain how to accomplish this in the most time-effective, cost-efficient way possible.
If necessity is the mother of invention, one could say that progress is the child of disruption. The dramatic interruption of the 2020 pandemic is perhaps the final straw in an evolving and already disrupted Pay TV market, forcing broadcasters, content owners and traditional Pay TV operators to truly evaluate their existing technologies and business strategies. Start-ups and traditional players, alike, are, now more than ever, looking to leverage and benefit from the efficiencies of the cloud, using pay-as-you-go resources to scale up as needed or launch new focused services such as sporting events, festivals, concerts, or specialized genre specific services.
In this interview, David Phillips (Principal Architect, M&E Solutions, Cloudian) talks t IABM TV about object storage & scalability.

Disney announced strong second quarter results for fiscal year 2018, topping Wall Street expectations. The entertainment giant reported a 9% year-on-year quarterly revenue increase, while earnings per share jumped 23%. This growth was fueled by its Parks division and Studio Entertainment segment, in particular the success of blockbuster movies such as Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. Disney’s Studio Entertainment is set to keep the blockbuster titles coming over the next few years, which will be of vital importance when Disney launches its direct-to-consumer offering in 2019. The company’s cable segment, which includes ESPN, saw operating income drop 6%, partly due to costs associated with the new streaming service ESPN Plus.
