Industria today announced a new Zignal Cloud™ service offering that utilizes Amazon Web Services™, including the Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). By leveraging Amazon Web Services, Industria drops the entry barrier of infrastructure costs to IPTV service providers,lowering the total cost of ownership as well as ensuring predictability of cost. Zignal Cloud™ is currently available by invitation only, but service providers can register to be included in the beta program at Industria.com.
"Amazon Web Services provide highly reliable and robust computing and storage infrastructure that can scale to accommodate the demand peaks of mission-critical applications", said Steve Rabuchin, Director of Developer Relations for Amazon Web Services. "Zignal Cloud users will be supported by the same technology infrastructure that Amazon.com uses.
"By leveraging the investment Amazon has made in creating their own web-scale infrastructure, Industria can offer our customers that same reliability" said Gudjon Mar Gudjonsson, CEO of Industria. "We feel that this makes the Zignal Cloud™ service competitive with even the largest telecommunication operators."
Zignal Cloud™ offers anyone with access to the required content to become a TV operator, capitalizing on the latest technology and innovation in the IPTV space. New service providers will be able to get started using the Industria Zignal solution with no upfront licensing or investment costs. Consumers can enjoy TV services on a range of devices, including set-top boxes, mobile devices and PCs.
Service Providers can interface with Zignal Cloud™ through a comprehensive application programming interface (API) in the same way as their existing systems, to further customize and integrate their IPTV offerings. Service providers' local media assets are conveniently managed within the back office environment of the Zignal Cloud™, including their deployed IP video streams and On Demand video assets.
