NetApp Works with ASE to Enable High-Performance Cloud Workflows for Media and Entertainment Industry


SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) today announced its collaboration with ASE to expand the company’s ASE Cloud to the United States, providing flexible and reliable cloud access for the world’s largest media and entertainment companies.

The animation, postproduction, and broadcast sectors require high bandwidth to manage massive HD files, which are often sized 4K and beyond. In the past, these demands made managing files in the cloud costly because IT managers had to deal with hefty bandwidth fees to get the performance they needed.

“We’re entering the U.S. market to allow our media and entertainment customers to respond faster to market opportunities through creative channels and to do so without compromising quality of service,” said Andrew Sjoquist, CEO of ASE.

ASE Cloud is built on NetApp® StorageGRID® Webscale, enabling ASE to offer object storage at an efficient cost per gigabyte. The cloud service enables companies to manage and control their data in a public cloud without data egress fees, all managed through a simple web portal. This unique cost structure coupled with the ability to make sure that a high volume of data is accessible globally makes StorageGRID ideal for media and entertainment companies, which need rapid access to petabytes of data in a content repository from anywhere in the world.

“The media and entertainment industry needs to push the limits of creativity to bring audiences more vivid and realistic images, without pushing the limits of IT’s budget to manage and maintain the underlying data,” said Adam Fore, director, Virtualization And Cloud Solutions Marketing, Infrastructure and Applications at NetApp. “NetApp, collaborating with ASE Cloud, offers companies a holistic approach to managing data that is secure, efficient, and future-proof and provides freedom of choice.”

StorageGRID Webscale is an innovative, scale-optimized data solution that maximizes control over rich content, enabling secure, fluid movement. The software-defined object storage solution allows customers to determine where and how their data is stored, depending on where it is in the content lifecycle. The solution also protects customer data with layered erasure coding, which combines node-level and geo-distributed erasure coding to efficiently prevent data loss.

ASE Cloud, powered by NetApp, is now available in the United States
