Flow Cloud

 

The perfect entry-solution: the Flow Cloud offers full professional media asset management functionality as a flexible, short-term and fully serviced solution.

 

The Flow Cloud is a so called “online MAM” run by Flow Works. It can be hosted and driven in any cloud system. It is quick and easy to set up without high set-up costs. It scales freely to any size and is therefore ideal for either “entry-level” media asset management or for short-term projects. With the Flow Cloud the client avoids all the work and costs related to setting up a local system (incl. hardware, administration, connections etc.).

 

The Flow Cloud is a complete Flow Center in the cloud. It can be stand-alone or part of a broader Flow Center installation. With a stand-alone Flow Cloud, the Flow Center software is installed on a cloud server that can be rented (incl. storage). In this case, the customer does not own the hardware but instead rents the hardware from a cloud-provider such a Google, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM or others. In such a case, also the media storage has to be rented in the same cloud. Compared to having your own server hardware that is not necessarily in the cloud.

 

The Flow Cloud can be a clearly separated system running independently. However, when needed it can easily be extended with own-run systems solutions such as a Flow Center or a Flow Ant as local in-house MAM. It works for all industries and requires substantially lower starting costs and has low entry barriers. In this solution so called hidden features such as transcoders, meta-data mapping get a bigger role than in broader MAM systems. This also allows that separate features can be further developed as a single smaller product instead of changing the complete and more complex MAM infrastructure. Through this, it is a more flexible and from an architectural point of view simpler option than broader MAM systems. The content delivery networks can be configured as an option to streamline the client’s projects and media to a wide range of viewers or receivers in parallel.
