AWS re:Invent 2017: Case Study: Learn how to Choose and Optimize Storage for Media a (STG318) – #AWS

Driven by higher resolution and an increasing amount of content due to direct B2C delivery, media companies are looking to cost-effectively leverage cloud compute scalability. Emerging use cases, such as media supply chains, VFX/animation rendering, and transcoding for OTT streaming, require careful planning as they move to the cloud. Storage is critical to the performance and processing of media.

In this session, we discuss various AWS cloud storage strategies for different media workloads. We take a deep dive into media supply chains (including content transcoding, QC, mastering, and packaging), post-production tasks in the cloud, and other media and entertainment workloads. You also learn how Theory Studios uses storage on AWS cloud to support rendering visual effects and animation on Amazon EC2 Spot Instances.
