FOX Corporation Delivers Content to Millions by Building FOX MediaCloud on AWS
When an acquisition in early 2019 required the separation of assets, FOX Corporation turned to AWS to help replicate its preexisting MediaCloud platform. To help its lean technical team handle high volumes of data and file-transcoding and file-sharing needs, the American media distributor sought to build a more versatile solution than itslegacy on-premises system could deliver. FOX Corporation used Amazon S3, AmazonEC2, and other AWS services to make the ingestion, transcoding, and delivery of content as seamless as possible. On AWS, FOX Corporation was also able to create a centralized repository of searchable assets.
