Recently, Adobe gathered a panel of executives from Condé Nast, National Geographic, Newsday, and other publishers to discuss their organizations' efforts to create a new breed of e-publications based on the mobile computing power of the tablet.
This paper, which has been jointly developed by Akamai and Wuaki.tv —
an OTT service provider — covers the importance of satisfying viewer
expectations for a broadcast-quality experience by quickly and reliably
streaming video online. It explains why it is challenging to do so and outlines
best practices for online video delivery. It also explores the option of splitting
traffic across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) versus tightly
integrating video player technology with a single CDN in order to improve
online video delivery in a strategic manner. Finally, the paper shows how
Wuaki.tv chose the latter option and boosted customer retention, customer
referrals, and revenues as a result.
When Bloomberg Television opened its state-of-the-art broadcast facility in the
company’s new European Headquarters in London last year, network engineers from
the company’s IT infrastructure team collaborated with Apstra to successfully pilot its
technology in order to gain visibility across and more effectively manage the network
fabric supporting the building’s media production systems.

Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications.
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices
from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.
This buyer’s guide for load balancers is based on research, best practices, and conversations with network administrators and IT operations teams at over 110 Global 2000 enterprises. It presents guidelines for choosing application services that mirror the needs of modern data centers and public cloud initiatives.
The guide is organized in sections, starting with a pre-assessment of your current application delivery capabilities. With data gathered from your pre-assessment, you can review the considerations involved in creating a software-defined application services strategy; identify opportunities to improve automation of application services and operations. Finally, use the software-defined application services checklist at the end of the guide to identify key priorities in your choice of application service solutions for your enterprise.
Can your current ADC solution elastically scale load balancers and application servers? Does it provide real-time insights and visibility into traffic? There is a lot to consider when it comes to the future of your load balancing strategy. Download our free e-book today!
A new ZK Research study reveals significant shifts in application delivery practices as enterprises are automating or adopting cloud-native applications.
In the process of modernizing their infrastructure, enterprises are addressing on-demand scalability requirements, improving management, and lowering costs.
This study discusses:
- Enterprise preferences for their next load balancers
- Capabilities that are most sought after by network teams
- How businesses are preparing for hybrid and multi-cloud environments

"ZK Research conducted a recent study of the Application Delivery Controller (ADC) market and finds that the landscape for load balancers and ADCs is rapidly changing in the face of these market forces.
Join Principal Analyst Zeus Kerravala for an informative session to learn:
- Common application delivery challenges
- On-premises vs. cloud considerations for ADCs
- Trends in delivering cloud-native applications
- Trends in troubleshooting
- Future solutions being considered
- What are the features most in demand that network engineers aren't getting

This whitepaper details how ADCs and virtual appliances are inflexible, expensive, and lacking in visibility in contrast to the central management, autoscaling features, intelligent analytics, and flexibility offered by the Avi Vantage Platform. This document
also outlines 7 key considerations that you should evaluate before you refresh your current load balancers:
1. Automation and Self-Service
3. Applica tion Analytics and
5. Hybrid Cloud
6. Ecosystem Integrations
7. Total Cost of Ownership

Common daily media broadcaster tasks such as ad verification are slow and costly. Done manually, they may also introduce inefficiencies that can interfere with transparency and payment accountability—and impact your bottom line. Meanwhile, recent and archived media lies idle when you could repurpose it to increase brand exposure and generate revenue.
Learn how Veritone, Inc. used its aiWARE Operating System, building on Amazon Web Services (AWS), to help Westwood One, Inc., a large audio broadcasting network in the United States, develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) solutions designed for ad verification and monetizing archived media.

Michelle has been with Twilio for nearly four years, supporting “Twilions” — as employees are affectionately known inside the company — through tremendous growth in both revenue and headcount. “We’re looking at creating a great employee experience at Twilio. We want to provide Twilions with the tools, resources, and experiences they need to innovate, scale, and grow.” BetterUp’s whole person approach was a key part of Michelle’s evaluation process. Most leadership development approaches focus on teaching people what to do. But what they miss is an equal focus on how to be. In contrast, BetterUp’s approach addresses the psychological resources that allow leaders to manage themselves so they have the capacity to manage others. This includes the ability to remain resilient, have a growth mindset, maintain a sense of control, and take risks. Evidence shows that these resources need to be in place for sustainable leadership habits to take root.

FTP was developed in 1971, and a lot has changed in the decades since it was first created. Though the protocol has seen improvement over the years, there are some fundamental drawbacks to relying on this old technology for transferring today’s large media files.
FTP can no longer keep up with the modern global media supply chain. Whether you are a top tier company or a small startup, being in the media business today requires next-generation acceleration software. Read this whitepaper to find out more.
After examining the TCO of object storage vs. LTO tape, and seeing the benefits achieved in a real-world case study, it’s easy to understand why object storage is quickly becoming the standard for data storage, backup, archive, and recovery.
It’s clear that when all costs associated with data storage are tracked, object storage beats tape storage hands down. And even with costs aside, on-premises object storage with Cloudian provides businesses with the flexibility they need to respond to changing technology environments, storage requirements, data monetization opportunities, and more.
So, it comes as little surprise that educators are taking advantage of this shift and beginning to incorporate video into the curriculum. You don’t need to be a video expert to see the possibilities it represents for education. Even if you don’t know your DVI from your HDMI, chances are you’re eager to engage and inspire your students in creative and productive ways.
With the accessibility and affordability of video today, it no longer matters how experienced with A/V technology you are. Around the world, educators and academic institutions are using video to open new channels of communication, connect with their communities, and give students new and engaging ways to learn.
