BASE Media Cloud, a virtual managed service provider in the UK, has selected the Aspera Files SaaS platform for media storage and distribution.
BASE Media offers a suite of virtual services comprising media storage, media asset management, file transfer and content distribution. The services are supported by both private and hybrid cloud infrastructure, and offered on a pay-as-you-go model, reducing its media customers’ capital expenditure.
The addition of Aspera’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, Aspera Files, complements this model. Using Aspera’s secure content access key system, BASE Media can securely wrap its cloud and data centre storage in an easy to use package so that non-technical users can administer permissions, add users, share files/folders and public links, creating a hybrid cloud distribution service.
“With Aspera Files we’re putting the keys to the data in our customer’s hands,” said Ben Foakes, founder and managing director, BASE Media Cloud. “It’s effectively doing the job of a CMS, storage and delivery system combined, via the cloud in our case, so clients like Aurora Media can access, transfer, package up and distribute their content through one, easy-to-use, Web interface.”
Content can be stored and accessed in multiple cloud storage and on-premise storage systems.
