Pricing: Traditional EVP pricing is based on what you “may” need. With the server–based EVP model, you pay for maximum availability every month, not for usage. A cloud-architected EVP supports user-based pricing that lets you pay only for what you use.
Hardware: The cloud offers built in high availability without requiring on-premises hardware. With traditional EVP, a significant hardware investment is required to obtain high availability. More often than not, hardware is an expensive investment that will only prove to be more expensive when it’s time to upgrade or scale.
Scalability: This may be one of the most valuable benefits to a cloud-native EVP. With traditional systems, scaling can be costly and inefficient. In addition to the expense of space and hardware, increasing scalability with traditional EVPs takes extensive planning and deployment. With a cloud-native architecture, you can seamlessly burst as needed, such as a live, all-hands webcast.
Reliability: Traditional EVPs have a single database, posing a single point of failure and opening up the possibility of crashes, overloads and headaches. With the cloud-based model, there is no single point of failure – the database and other services are fully distributed and providing for near real-time recovery.
Tenancy: A cloud-native EVP offers a multi-tenant architecture, providing shared access to foundational components while keeping customer-specific information and configurations separate and secure. This multi-tenant environment enables organizations, and even service providers, to easily support multiple divisions or customers through a single instance.
Deployment: Deployment speed of your EVP is crucial. A cloud-native EVP, like Rev, can be rapidly deployed as a cloud, on-premises or hybrid solution with multiple instances of your video management platform synchronized for added redundancy and reliability.
As a cloud-architected EVP, Rev harnesses all of these benefits and more. Learn more about the EVP of the future. Download our white paper, Why You’ll Need a Cloud-Native Video Platform to Manage the Imminent Video Surge.
