The Flexible Future: Virtualization, SaaS, and the Move to the Cloud

In an effort to minimize costly hardware onsite and streamline content-management operations, many sports-media organizations are transitioning from an on-premises, single-purpose infrastructure to a virtualized, flexible ecosystem that relies largely on software orchestration. As a result, the entire video-production ecosystem is undergoing a makeover: from storage and editing to encoding and transcoding and beyond. Technology leaders and content owners address the potential risks and opportunities in making this dramatic technological shift.
