Many customers leverage ZaaS for universal aggregation and distribution to multiple affiliates. With ZaaS:

  • Acquire content in any protocol and normalize it to any encoding parameter and PID mapping
  • Operate a fully managed content exchange platform for live linear video between content owners and consumers
  • Create efficient workflows for occasional use events activating dynamic pull targets in the cloud as needed

ZaaS Unlocks Multi-Cloud Delivery Strategies

ZaaS enables multi-cloud live video distribution with significant economic efficiencies

ZaaS dynamically builds video over IP routes over geographically diverse video optimized cloud infrastructure. Many companies leverage ZaaS as a critical component of their multi-cloud strategy. When delivering mission critical live content, relying on a single cloud provider and region has repeatedly led to significant commercial losses and damaged brands. However, replicating video over IP delivery on multiple public cloud providers can lead to significantly increased infrastructure and egress fees. ZaaS enables unparalleled cloud delivery performance with >99.999% reliability, often at a fraction of the costs associated with public cloud provider media architectures.

Dynamically orchestrated & consolidated monitoring of multi-cloud delivery

ZEN Master orchestrates live video routes bonded across diverse signal paths and seamlessly blends mixed cloud infrastructure in to consolidated operational dashboards:

  • Provision cloud infrastructure and seamlessly bond streaming delivery across ZaaS and AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud operating environments
  • IDP Insights holistically measures cloud instance health with automated detection of behavioral anomalies and performance outliers
  • Create efficient workflows for occasional use events activating dynamic pull targets in the cloud as needed
  • Optimize cloud spend by managing which cloud enabled delivery paths are selected for specific channels and event distributions

ZaaS enables media companies to easily implement & manage cost effective multi-cloud strategies
