Webinar: "How OTTs Save Money and Improve Performance by Streaming Video on the Alternative Cloud"

Did you know there are more options to build, run, and grow your company in the cloud other than AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure? Streaming content shouldn't be a huge and unknown expense, with customer support often lacking.

Simply put, complacent streamers pay too much and get passed by their competitors. In this webinar, you'll hear from over-the-top streaming companies that have grown their businesses while saving money thanks to alternative cloud providers. Learn how they:

- Receive a more predictable global pricing model that doesn’t sacrifice latency or user experience.

- Control expenses with virtual machines that come with pools of bandwidth included in the cost along with additional bandwidth offered at a flat rate.

- Programmatically deploy and manage infrastructure with open APIs and open source configuration management solutions.

- Optimize routing and peering through a high-speed global network and worldwide data centers.

- Build highly responsive support organizations in partnership with their cloud infrastructure provider.

New Webinar: "How OTTs Save Money and Improve Performance by Streaming Video on the Alternative Cloud"

The last couple of years I've been spending more time researching and understanding OTT infrastructure-- capabilities, as well as technical and cost trade-offs. Probably the biggest area of innovation is the processing platform that runs most of the OTT service-- what we affectionately call "the cloud" (I was even hired as an expert witness for a lawsuit involving cloud platforms and encoders). I've learned a lot, but most of all that there are many more options out there than the usual suspects of AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure.

Join me, sponsor Linode, and other experts for my next webinar on this topic:

Over 1,000 Executives Join Virtual and Global OTT Executive Summit

( Join us for the 8th annual OTT (Over The Top) Executive Summit, being held November 17-19, 2020, for the first time as a virtual event. The OTT Executive Summit brings together the top minds in video content, distribution, and technology to discuss how OTT is enabling new business models for both traditional Pay TV providers and new innovators. We are planning another fantastic gathering of industry executives representing the “who’s who” of the industry— including service providers, broadcasters, programmers, content producers, advertisers, and enabling technologies. 96% of past attendees were senior executives and all were key thought leaders and decision makers.

New Global Format This Year

Now in its 8th iteration, OTT Executive Summit is revolutionizing its format, embracing streaming more heartily, and going truly global! This year, rather than a one-day event in New York City, we are expanding to a three-day virtual format, providing a global livestream, with Q&A and networking via our Zoom video platform. We'll certainly miss the meals and cocktail reception of our normal Summit, but this year we'll trade the intimacy of a smaller gathering for a global virtual conference of over 100 top speakers and more than 1,000 attendees from around the world. We hope you can join us.
