SGL FlashNet Hooked Into AWS

SGL has announced that its content management software FlashNet is fully integrated with Data Expedition’s ExpeDat Gateway for Amazon S3. This enables broadcasters and content owners to transfer media directly to AWS providing an additional means of storage and disaster recovery workflows.

“FlashNet integrated with ExpeDat Gateway for Amazon S3 provides a highly cost-effective file transfer solution, enabling files to be transferred to and from S3 at up to 700 Mbit/s,” says Lee Sheppard, SGL’s Director of Product Management. “Once data is stored in S3 it can be moved to Amazon Glacier using a standard AWS interface, providing a more affordable long-term storage option. The combined SGL and Data Expedition solution can be deployed quickly and is highly scalable.”

“We are extremely pleased that SGL has integrated Data Expedition's accelerated file-transfer solution, ExpeDat, into its flagship content management software, FlashNet,” said Dana Merk, vp, business development at Data Expedition. “With the cloud now being fully embraced as a storage option for critical digital assets, it makes total sense to leverage best-in-class solutions like FlashNet and ExpeDat Gateway for Amazon S3 in a partnered manner.”

FlashNet’s rules-based implementation provides automated data duplication across multiple storage layers and locations. Using FlashNet operators can create additional rules that send material directly to the cloud. The FlashNet archive is able to track and record exactly where material is at any given time, regardless of long-term storage method, and can alert third-party systems, such as the MAM, that content is available for download.
