Akamai Technologies introduced the new Sola Media Solutions portfolio, a comprehensive set of cloud‑based, integrated services.
Sola Media is designed to offer customers a powerful, yet easy-to-use way to address the challenges of online media workflow, storage and delivery, the firm said.
According to a recent report, industry analyst firm Gartner, “more than 1 billion connected devices — including smartphones, media tablets and ultrathin notebooks — capable of consuming all forms of media will be in the hands of consumers by 2015.”
Meeting the increasing demand for content that is available when and where viewers want it, on a wide variety of devices, and with the highest quality possible can present challenges. Content providers want the cost advantages of efficiency, agility, and flexibility that cloud based solutions offer, while ensuring that the platform they choose has the flexibility to incorporate technologies that address their varying content and audience requirements.
Content providers that are using the online channel to engage audiences and capture mindshare are already benefitting from the power and flexibility of Akamai’s Sola Media Solutions.
