We’re excited to announce that our CTO, Julian Fernandez-Campon is presenting a paper at the HPA Tech Retreat 2021. The virtual presentation, titled ‘Hybrid Cloud: How to get the most out of On-Premises and the Cloud World for the ‘new normal’, is part of the Program Highlights, which will take place on Tuesday March 16 at 1:15 pm (Pacific time) during the Content Drop #2. The online HPA Tech Retreat runs from 15th – 24th March and includes a number of industry speakers from companies around the world.
In his presentation, Julian will highlight how the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated many processes that normally would have taken years to mature. The near-global lockdown forced entire companies to adjust overnight to a new work paradigm that included remote operation based on Cloud computing. But now, months later, with time to review, 20/20 hindsight and a clear vision of what has been done and how, it’s time to realistically think about what can and what cannot be achieved remotely and most importantly, how to develop contingency plans and define a consistent and realistic roadmap toward cloud operations.
A Hybrid cloud solution allows customers to transition to the cloud at their own pace and with less risk. But the real difference between a Hybrid cloud process and traditional IT cloud services is that applications go to media and not media to applications. To achieve that, a solution is needed that can efficiently manage the physical location of the files and can orchestrate the integration of different systems.
Julian will address the main challenges that media companies could encounter and will discuss the solutions that will ensure a smooth and seamless transition and protect business continuity.
