EditShare Introduces Unprecedented Power In Cloud Editing, Archiving and Backup - FLEX

This suite of powerful media asset management and storage software solutions provides a straightforward way for businesses, large and small, to take full advantage of cloud services and workflows.

FLEX reflects the migration to a “work anywhere” environment, with ready access to content wherever the creative staff need to be. It also meets the move towards an OpEx financial model, with the cloud hosting and storage fees flexing to reflect the level of business.

EditShare began leading the industry's shift to the cloud a few years ago by expanding many of its existing core product capabilities – openness, interoperability and scale – to the cloud,” commented Stephen Tallamy, CTO, EditShare. “EditShare FLEX is the result of these investments and we’re excited to show the industry how it can greatly simplify how their teams may choose to work.”

Leading the new initiatives is FLEX Cloud Edit - providing media asset management, high performance software-defined storage, and virtual workstations in the AWS cloud.

FLEX Cloud Edit+ adds accelerated file transfer capabilities using the CloudDat transfer software from Data Expedition Inc. This provides comprehensive workstation management using Teradici’s Cloud Access Manager, integrated into an intuitive, single-sign on EditShare environment.

FLEX Cloud Sync provides synchronization of local EFS arrays and archive storage and leading cloud providers. By automating backup to the cloud, EditShare FLEX Cloud Sync allows retirement of LTO based tape libraries and gain the huge resilience and availability that major cloud providers offer.

“FLEX offers turnkey bundles that allow customers to get started quickly with a known configuration and pricing profile. Our professional services team can work with customers to tailor the system to exactly meet their needs,” Tallamy added. “The customer maintains operational oversight and budgetary control, with no over-provisioning so no over-paying.”
