Kaltura goes to Amazon's EC2 with OVP offering

OVP Kaltura has released a new cloud-based version of its Video Platform, available on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform in the cloud.

The release allows publishers to initiate an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance of Kaltura's rich-media content management platform in less than 15 minutes, the company said.

Users will get a full range of Kaltura's online-video tools and capabilities, including advanced rich-media ingestion, transcoding, management, metadata extraction, SEO, publishing, monetization, analytics and audience measurement.

 "A company or developer that is using Kaltura to deploy advanced video functionalities and services can do so with unparalleled flexibility and control," said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Chairman & CEO. "They can subscribe to Kaltura's SaaS or self-host the On-Premise system behind their own firewall, and now they can also run the system on their own instances within Amazon EC2. The Amazon cloud alternative provides a high level of security and control with lesser IT complexities and spend that may be required in an On-Premise deployment."
