NetApp is collaborating with ASE to expand the company’s ASE Cloud to the US, providing flexible cloud access for media and entertainment companies that need high bandwidth to manage massive HD files, which are often 4K and beyond.
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 web portal.
StorageGrid Webscale is a scale-optimized data solution that maximizes control over rich content, enabling secure and fluid movement. The software-defined object storage solution, says NetApp, 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 US.
