Acembly, an innovator in media and cloud infrastructure management, and Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company that delivers the lowest prices and fastest performance in the industry, have partnered to enable media & entertainment (M&E) enterprises to streamline media management by reducing cost and complexity.
The sheer volume of video content generated today by broadcasters, studios, and production houses is driving the need for more efficient and agile content workflows with improved economics. With the Acembly media management application integrated with Wasabi’s economical storage, content owners and media groups can efficiently move assets in and out of Wasabi’s low cost, high performance storage platform with full cost analysis and control. Acembly was built to be storage agnostic, exposing costs and usage transparencies, while applying controls with notifications and automations for media workflows. Built with powerful transcoding and file transfer features, Acembly can be used as a web or desktop application that manages local and multi-cloud environments from a single, simple interface.
“We’re excited about the partnership with Wasabi as we believe this integration will bring a next level value proposition to M&E companies of any size.” notes Patrick Kennedy, Founder of Acembly. “Users of Acembly can connect and apply automations with any on premise or cloud storage – and this solution with Wasabi hot cloud storage will be a game changer.”
With Wasabi, media organizations have access to high performance cloud object storage at a dramatically reduced price point. Wasabi is an immediate access, one-size-fits-all, universal cloud storage utility that removes complex storage tiers and variable pricing to allow organizations to avoid costly and restrictive object lifecycle management (OLM) practices. Hot cloud storage empowers media companies to consolidate their storage on a single-tier service that can be used for production work, VOD origin, backup, and archiving with immediate access to all content.
“Wasabi is disrupting numerous industries and the interest from the media and entertainment sector has been astonishing,” notes David Friend, CEO of Wasabi, “It is clear that there is a strong demand for better tools to store and manage data, and that this new partnership has met a real need.
