Dalet, a leading provider of solutions and services for media-rich organizations, today announced Ooyala Flex Media Platform new features designed to meet the needs of global program delivery with focus on better control over budgets. New, under-the-hood Kubernetes capabilities automatically scale cloud computing use for proxy creation and file movement, ensuring customers optimize cloud costs while having the firepower to manage larger-than-normal content volumes when needed. Fine-grain multi-tenant security features and support for a wide range of mastering formats, including IMF in the cloud, make the Ooyala Media Flex Platform the best-in-industry media logistics for creative production workflows and global content delivery.
“Today, more than ever, the cloud plays a critical role for our customers and the viability of their business. But they need more than the ability to leverage its computing power, they need better control over how and when to use it,” states Lee McMullan, Market Director – Multiplatform Distribution, Dalet. “Ooyala Flex’s new capabilities provide the functions, security and elasticity customers need with simple, yet powerful administration tools that allow them to expand their creative productions while getting better control over unpredictable cloud costs.”

Manage Costs of Working in the Cloud
Ooyala Flex leverages Kubernetes to dynamically scale computing power across cloud environments, ensuring customers pay only for what is needed. In addition to the significant cost savings through dynamic autoscaling, customers can set job concurrency quotas and scaling thresholds, keeping a much tighter control over cloud costs.
Lee adds, “Many Ooyala customers today keep the cloud compute valve wide open to manage spikes in projects. Our new capabilities turn on the elasticity of the cloud when you need it. This work is part of Dalet’s plans to provide the platform as a SaaS offering.”
Added support for cloud archive lifecycle gives customers further control over management and costs of large archives.
More Efficient Global Content and Program Delivery
Ooyala Flex can now manage and distribute IMF packages, eliminating the need to create multiple versions of a content package. Customers can significantly reduce storage space and optimize management of common projects such as programs distributed globally in various languages and non-standard viewing formats required by licensees and OTT services. With less physical resources required, customers can deliver multi-version programs faster and for a bigger return on investment.
