The Twistage Core Rich Media Framework allows organizations to implement the digital media storage strategy of their choice. IT departments that have deployed highly scalable storage solutions can realize more return on those investments. Twistage can interoperate with any connected storage solution. In fact, stakeholders can select between on-premise, cloud-based, and hybrid solutions and can even associate specific content libraries with specific storage locations.
Twistage provides a high degree of flexibility around setting levels of storage redundancy. Organizations can establish their policies globally or apply them to certain content libraries. From a user workflow standpoint, the experience is entirely consistent as Twistage manages all of the storage rules in the background. Organizations can mix-and-match storage offerings including cloud options Amazon S3 and CDN storage solutions, allowing them to achieve high availability at low cost.
Many organizations that have large collections of media have already made significant investments &ndash in terms of both time and money &ndash in storage infrastructure. Other organizations might have larger mezzanine files and constrained Internet access, making it impractical to push content into the cloud. And while the type of solution might range from a single server with a RAID storage array to a storage area network (SAN), Twistage is able to connect to and use any storage solution, providing a seamless integration.
While on-premise storage that is accessible by Twistage is secure, organizations with extremely proprietary content can effectively block all external access to content. Twistage can manage content by reference and allows organizations to register remote content by private IP. This content then reaps all of the benefits of being managed in Twistage – metadata managed, searching, sorting, etc. – while remaining completely inaccessible to users outside that private network.
