castLabs searched for a new data transport solution that was secure, fast, and cost-effective. Getting content to market quickly and securely was one of the most important factors for castLabs’ streaming service customers. As a result, they required a data transport method that safely moves digital media assets to and from the company’s Amazon S3 cloud infrastructure. With CloudDat, global users were able to upload content data to castLabs. The files were processed for streaming, and returned to the customer – all with assurance that the files were transmitted securely in both directions.
