I guess storing content closer to my audience will help speed up my story. But my IT people say it’s not practical to deploy servers around the world just for my web content and video. I wonder what this whole cloud storage thing is all about…
Limelight's Global Network + Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage = The biggest brain on the planet.
Here’s how it normally works—your users request a digital something (by clicking on a link) and we deliver it by fetching that digital something from wherever you are storing it. But what if that digital something is stored 10,000 miles away? It could seem like it’s coming from Mars to your user. That’s why you need to store those objects closer to where they are being request. At the edge.
“All Hail Cloud-eth Storage-eth.” Or something like that.
No, really, it’s a cloud storage solution that’s baked right into the Limelight OrchestrateTM Content Delivery network. That really big network, that legendary network, with its own gravitational pull. So your content is stored where it’s delivered (not on your own servers and definitely not in some other cloud that’s not part of our network).
And this is where the stars align. Guess what? Your IT people are looking for the same solution but for different reasons. They have nightmares about growing bandwidth costs, about server farms, about endless parties with endless vendors. With Limelight OrchestrateTM Cloud Storage, they get the storage solution they want, combined with the delivery they already use. Can you hear their sigh of relief? Shhh. Here it comes…
Integrated. Scalable. Flexible. Innovative.
Never did four words sound so sweet. Know why? Because they describe a massive, elastic storage solution, combined with a content delivery network, and really powerful software to help you do things. Things like set policies you can apply to any piece of content when it’s uploaded. That’s almost as awesome as french fries and mayonnaise. Well, almost (said no one, ever).
We built it to grow with you.
Whether you need megabytes or quinzillabytes or something in between, Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage is designed to accommodate. It gives you room to grow while protecting your budget from unpredictable costs. And leveraging the cloud means no more servers to install and no more bandwidth to purchase. Just lots of storage when you need it.
If only the Scarecrow had Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage as a brain.
Most storage (even cloud storage) needs a brain. It’s dumb. We give our cloud storage a real brain, something smart enough to put the Wizard to shame. Okay, it can’t fire off emerald green lightning bolts and scare little girls, but for storage? It’s wicked smaaht (catch that completely random, gratuitous Beantown reference, there?).
We built Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage with a powerful policy and rules engine that lets you automate all the heavy lifting of storage management. Transform a video into seven other formats? Done. Replicate large objects across seven continents? Instantly? Done. Look behind the curtain. With Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage, you can be the wizard (just please get rid of those flying monkeys; they freak us out!).
What you get.
Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage is a high performance, secure cloud storage solution that enables you to replicate, move, share, and archive data within your organization and with your partners. It offers global geographic placement to over 30 POPs around the globe, storage management workflow, and logic controls that dramatically simplify management overhead, reduce long-term IT costs, and help ensure compliance to regulatory standards.
When you choose Limelight Orchestrate Cloud Storage as your content delivery storage solution, you get two things you won't find with other providers. First, is the integrated policy engine—the brain. It helps you automate storage-based workflow processes like replication and content transformation (load a video file into storage and have it automatically transcoded into a different format). Second, is that our cloud storage is integral to our massive global delivery network. Content isn't stored in some special data center halfway across the world. It's stored everywhere your users are and everywhere they're requesting content. Kind of like those #$%^ monkeys…ergh…but better.
Get your content up and out in a hurry, to and from the closest location to the source. Sweet.
Your storage should be as nimble as your business. Period.
No single point of failure; massive, immediate scalability; and control of your content, from anywhere.
Control where data is stored and for how long, via replication policies.
