Solution Brief

CloudSoda + CatDV

Streamlined Media Workflow Management

In today’s media landscape, the management of diverse assets spread across various storage solutions is paramount. Optimizing the lifecycle management of these assets, encompassing descriptive metadata, workflow orchestration, and intelligent data movement with acceleration, is critical for enhancing the efficiency of the media supply chain.

With the increasing adoption of a hybrid model in this supply chain, which leverages cloud resources for elasticity and durability, come both benefits and challenges, including heightened complexity and costs. The integration of a Media Asset Management (MAM) system with a data mover equipped with workflow insights provides the much-needed visibility and simplicity to optimize both budget and timelines.

Its platform automates metadata enrichment based on folder structures and ingest points, accompanied by robust logging capabilities for efficient search, collaboration, and automation. Importantly, all these functions can be performed within CatDV before CloudSoda initiates data transfers across the entire storage ecosystem or to and from the public cloud.
