​Cantemo And iXsystems Partner For Hybrid Cloud Storage

The partnership sees iXsystems’ TrueNAS storage line running natively under Cantemo’s cloud video hub, iconik.

The TrueNAS products, including the FreeNAS Mini series from iXsystems, offers ZFS-based storage and native cloud sync capable of pairing with virtually any editing or broadcast environment - Windows, macOS or Linux.

As a hybrid cloud, content can be managed locally or in your cloud provider of choice, with users in control of what content should be stored where. Users can also add intelligence to their content with iconik’s integration with artificial intelligence.

Parham Azimi, CEO, Cantemo, commented: “The media and entertainment sector has been relatively late to move to the cloud compared to other industries. This is mainly due to large file sizes and security concerns for premium content. Thanks to hybrid cloud workflows and an evolution in cloud technology, these concerns are being reduced and media companies are looking to maximize the benefits of the cloud. This integration will deliver a seamless management to storage workflow to help them do that.”

Morgan Littlewood, svp, iXsystems, added: “Media and entertainment industry clients are challenged with global teams and growing archives. Integrating with Cantemo iconik gives them an intuitive way to access their archive and collaborate with others, no matter where they are in the world.”
