November 3, 2016
- Leaner database, faster recovery
- Data management in the cloud or on-premises
- Different business models to meet different needs
Media companies, agencies, and marketers generate much of the world’s growing data volume. These enterprises need instant access to a mounting pile of content and publishing data, as well as speedy recovery in the event of an emergency. This is why agile, responsive data management is so critical wherever information is archived, be it in a company-owned network or in the cloud. Now the new vjoon Storage Engine is here to help IT teams make the most of agile data management.
A new concept in data storage: leaner database, faster recovery
In multichannel publishing and content marketing, the data load grows heavier with every added output channel. And rising demand for high-resolution images and videos further exacerbates an already challenging situation. To protect the integrity of all this information, companies need a management tool that can handle vast amounts of data and restore the database promptly in the event of a failure. This is what vjoon Storage Engine is here to do. It streamlines and simplifies the storage and management of vjoon K4’s publishing data and markedly speeds up recovery.
Taking snapshots of these data is simply a matter of pressing a button or triggering a scheduled automated routine. Using vjoon Storage Engine will shrink the database and even vast numbers of snapshots require little storage space. Data are recovered quickly in the event of an emergency and the publishing workflow can be promptly resumed. All processes take place in the background so as not to impede graphic designers, content writers, and editors’ efforts, freeing these and other users to focus fully on the work at hand.
It’s up to the customer: in the cloud or on-premises
In-sourcing IT has its benefits. Infrastructure can be run by company staff or provided as a managed service. Local networks are very fast and provide the means to isolate mission-critical data. On the other hand, customers who opt for Amazon, Microsoft, Google, or other cloud services enjoy great flexibility at lower CAPEX and OPEX. Computing performance and storage space are remarkably scalable and can be upped at the touch of a button to keep pace with the company’s growth. And with S3, Amazon offers a special type of object storage in the cloud that lets customers store and retrieve any amount of data, anywhere in the world.
Companies that opt for vjoon K4 and vjoon Storage Engine are free to run their publishing workflows and maintain all data on their in-house IT infrastructure. They may also use Amazon’s highly scalable, cloud-based object storage for vjoon Storage Engine. Or they can port the whole package, vjoon K4, and vjoon Storage Engine, to the cloud. This freedom of choice puts media companies, agencies, and marketers back in the driver’s seat when it comes to their IT strategies.
And whatever choice they make, they are sure to reap the benefits of agile data management in vjoon K4 and vjoon Storage Engine.
“vjoon Storage Engine breaks new ground. With this innovative solution, we are offering an efficient means of handling the steadily growing quantity of data generated when content is produced”, says vjoon GmbH CEO Andreas Schrader. “This new storage engine helps companies practice agile data management in the cloud and on their servers.”
vjoon Storage Engine is available now from official vjoon integration partners.
