Germany’s first free streaming video service, Joyn GmbH is a ProSiebenSat.1 and Discovery joint venture combining live TV with on-demand content and exclusive programming. Joyn chose AWS Snowball Edge to move their media archive from expensive on-premises data centers to Amazon S3.
“Joyn is a cloud-first media service built on AWS, so we knew that moving our archive using AWS Snowball Edge would be fast, simple and secure, but we’ve also been impressed by how cost-effective it was. Now that all of our content is easily accessible in the cloud, we can quickly transcode and deliver content to audiences that they can’t find on any other streaming service."

Using Amazon S3 and S3 Glacier Deep Archive provided the Rock Hall with the confidence that its digital media would be preserved and easily accessible at an affordable price. However, the Rock Hall still needed to recover the data on LTO tapes. Working with AWS, the project team ingested the files into S3 Glacier Deep Archive via six AWS Snowball Edge Storage Optimized devices. Using AWS Snowball Edge helped to address common challenges with large-scale data transfers, including high network costs, long transfer times, and security concerns.
Lotte consolidated 140 million files in 2 weeks with AWS Snowball to power LotteON, an online shopping platform. Lotte leveraged AWS Snowball to provide cost effective, secure, and fast offline data transfer. Transferring data with AWS Snowball enabled Lotte to transfer data without provisioning additional network capacity.
Photobox wanted to get out of the business of owning and maintaining its own IT infrastructure so it could redeploy resources toward innovation in artificial intelligence and other areas to create a better customer experience. By migrating from its Dell EMC Isilon and IBM Cleversafe on-premises storage arrays to Amazon S3 using AWS Snowball Edge, Photobox saved a significant amount on storage costs for its 10 PB of photo storage.
