Augmented Storage beyond Content Management
Store in any location: seamlessly access anytime, anywhere
AST is a hybrid HSM (Hierarchical storage management) that provides a cloud native, agnostic and cost-effective content storage solution.
AST abstracts the applications of the physical location of the media and the access method, all based on a microservices architecture and format-agnostic to files managing live content as well as closed files, SD, HD, UHD, 360VR content etc. This technology allows to quickly adapt investments when technology changes or when related storage costs go down, so it can be deployed in multiple sites, either on-premises or in the cloud. The storage paradigm of AST follows the path of an object-based approach.
AST Hybrid Cloud
(Private and public clouds) managed as a single IT architecture
Media Abstraction Layer
So that users don’t need to be media or storage location aware
Multi-tenancy, multi-site, multi-tier
Secure media storage and transactions
Partial restore and soft parting
Built into AST (storage access, performance management, system status and health)
