Description
Many media companies are eager to take advantage of the flexibility and new creative opportunities promised by IT. They want to pay for what they need a-la-carte. They want to be able to scale up and out, or down and in, depending upon demand. They want flexible, scalable infrastructure, and they want to make business deals for their media facilities that reflect the highly dynamic state of the industry. Finally, they want an architecture that takes advantage of a service-based approach to media.
The Dynamic Media Services Architecture described in this presentation lays out an architectural approach that allows media businesses to build facilities on the fly that are 'right-sized' for the task at hand. Within this framework, physical workspaces provide convenient human interfaces to support a business function, but have no fixed association with applications or back-end hardware. Virtual facilities are created as required and made available to skilled staff where and when they are needed. This architecture runs on distributed platforms, and in a hybrid-cloud environment. The approach naturally supports both fixed and transient projects, and can provide both resilience and business continuation in a disaster.
