Harmonic and Mirantis Bring Cloud-Native Media Processing to OpenStack
The comprehensive VOS Cloud software solution, embedded with a unified code structure combining the expertise of Harmonic and recently acquired Thomson Video Networks, makes configuration, deployment and orchestration of powerful media processing and delivery workflows easy via an automated video and cloud formation technology using standard OpenStack deployment templates. Featuring capabilities such as live video encoding with time-shift TV services, as well as VOD and cloud DVR, VOS Cloud software enables service providers to generate instant revenue, without the traditional CAPEX involved with building, maintaining and operating a new headend or data center. Pay-as-you-go pricing allows service providers to realize ROI in the shortest time possible.
“Unleashing the power of VOS Cloud software on the Mirantis Cloud Platform will stimulate monumental change in the industry, allowing video content and service providers to compete on a level that was never possible before, in terms of speed and flexibility,” said Bart Spriester, senior vice president, video products, at Harmonic. “We chose Mirantis as an ecosystem partner because they’re a major player in the OpenStack market and provide a robust set of OpenStack control-plane services that can be used with best-in-class infrastructure.”
