The cloud is already revolutionising video operations but its full potential is rarely harnessed. Microservices software architectures change that. Where before video processing and media workflow software was only virtualized, a microservices approach means it is re-architected for life in a private or public cloud. This makes television super-agile and lowers innovation risk. It makes cloud-based TV operations even more elastic and scalable than in a ‘standard’ cloud implementation, and at lower cost.
Deciding whether to virtualize unreformed software or re-architect it so that it is ‘cloud-native’ is an important choice facing platform operators, broadcast groups and other content owners. This report outlines the reasons for choosing a microservices approach and the scenarios where it offers little additional value. The report considers how you migrate to a microservices model, the organisational changes that are needed, barriers to deployment and the likely uptake of this technology.
The free report contains original insights from Orange, Ovum, Piksel, IHS Markit, Amazon Web Services, Harmonic, Imagine Communications and others. It details how microservices-based cloud software is being used by early-adopting media companies, including for IPTV middleware and linear broadcast playout (like at Discovery Communications).
