SoDA + the power of AWS

SoDA + AWS

SoDA provides the data movement management to and from AWS, enabling the use of AWS Media Intelligence solutions while tracking storage movement in the cloud and offering valuable insight into the cost and speed of data transfers. Metadata generated by the Media Intelligence solution is leveraged by Media Asset Management systems, therefore having a SoDA integrated plugin that seamlessly does the data movement is critical. SoDA provides protocol agnostic connections that work with all siloed data and on premises storage.

Ecosystem Aware

Ecosystem Aware

SoDA supports NAS (SMB/NFS), SAN (Agent). DAS (Agent), Object Storage and integrates with all AWS S3 storage tiers including S3, IA, Glacier, Glacier Deep Archive. SoDA also supports EFS and VMware storage with Agent technology.

Chargeback/Billback

Chargeback/Billback

SoDA allows you to track data movement by user group and project for tracking spending for chargeback and bill back purposes.

Dry Run

Dry Run

Before doing a one-time migration or policy-based data movement SoDA allows you to gain insight into how much you are spending for your selected data set on storage, how much it will cost to move the data (including egress fees) and how much it is to store on the selected new storage.

How it Works

SoDA's data management software is storage-agnostic and ecosystem-aware, providing companies with unprecedented visibility and clarity into their unstructured data. SoDA eliminates hidden storage costs by using predictive analytics and user defined policies that intelligently and transparently move data across tiers and from edge to core to cloud for optimal data placement, peak performance, and maximum savings. Simple, flat and fair pricing and unmatched ease of use take the cost, complexity, and surprises out of managing data at any scale. SoDA is proud to be working closely with the AWS Media2Cloud, Media Intelligence and Media Supply Chain initiatives.

How it Works

How SoDA works with AWS

Anywhere to anywhere data movement

Open

SoDA is ecosystem aware and storage agnostic. It includes Agents for Window, Linux, and Mac that can access almost any data and be able to move/copy or sync that data from anywhere to anywhere.

Analytics for cost & time for data transfers

Open

SoDA’s Dry Run function uses the settings of a requested job to predict the cost and duration before it is initiated, saving both time and money.

Seamless API Integration

Open

SoDA has a RESTful API that enables integrations with the industry’s most used MAMs, which allows users to benefit from SoDA’s data movement and reporting capabilities without changing existing workflows.

Media Intelligence

Open

In order to leverage AWS Media Intelligence services, content needs to be ingested into AWS. SoDA provides the data movement management to and from AWS, enabling the use of AWS Media Intelligence solutions while tracking storage movement in the cloud and offering valuable insight into the cost and speed of data transfers. Metadata generated by the Media Intelligence solution is leveraged by Media Asset Management systems, therefore having a SoDA integrated plugin that seamlessly does the data movement is critical. SoDA provides protocol agnostic connections that work with all siloed data and on premises storage.

SoDA + HPA

Open

SoDA was proud to be part of the thought leadership project “Found Lederhosen” at this year’s Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) Tech Retreat 2021. The multi-vendor architecture illustrated a modernized cloud-based collaborative workflow all the way from the camera, through work-in-process, delivery, and archive. By leveraging SoDA in this reference architecture, SoDA was able to provide never before seen context to creative end-users around the cost and time metrics to store and restore media from a cloud archive.

The media pipeline as used on “Found Lederhosen” is designed to be replicated for real-world use, reach out to us so we can show you the power of an intelligent archive using SoDA.
