NHK – Migration to Azure Cloud
- Kumulate, Avid, MS Azure
- 6PB cloud storage project
- Multiple cloud tiers
- Direct archive/restore from Avid applications
Long-term Masstech customer NHK required a new cloud storage system for a newly-launched drama production channel. Operators needed to be able to send to and retrieve from Microsoft Azure cloud storage from within their Avid applications.
NHK’s operators request content movements from within Avid MediaCentral UX. Kumulate then manages the movement of content between Azure cloud storage and local Nexis production storage. Kumulate also manages the automated movement of assets across Azure’s ‘Hot’ and ‘Archive’ tiers, depending on asset attribute and usage.
