Modern broadcasters are eager to position their valuable content to capitalize on the benefits of operating across a pure cloud and/or hybrid enterprise. However, they’re faced with multiple challenges when migrating their content from traditional backup tapes that often span multiple generations, when using their existing infrastructure. Enter Seagate Powered by Tape Ark, a partnership specifically designed to efficiently migrate content from the world’s largest tape collections to the cloud.
By migrating their content off tape and to the cloud, broadcasters are able to improve data access, promote remote collaboration, increase data security and the speed of distribution. The content is also ideally positioned to apply today’s AI and ML tools, extracting significantly greater value from their content. When audience engagement is more important than ever, unlocking the value of tape-bound content, even across the largest collections is easier than many first envisage.
