“The biggest benefit of working with Google is the breadth of the network... (the network) makes it easy for us to make high-quality connections into the Google network with our customers’ live video streams.”Mark VanAntwerp, iStreamPlanet’s vice president for software engineering
Creativity, Not Infrastructure
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) levels the playing field, providing creative professionals with the computational power and global reach of Google’s infrastructure — resources previously available only to the largest broadcast and media companies. From content ingestion and creation, graphics rendering, storage & archival, to video encoding, clip editing and distribution for live streaming, focus on creating great content rather than infrastructure.
Media Archival & Disaster Recovery
High definition images and 4K-and-higher video are causing an explosion in storage and bandwidth requirements. GCP was built for this scale: store media cheaply and indefinitely, using either Google Cloud Storage or our industry-defining archival product Cloud Storage Nearline, which lets you retrieve data with sub-second average response times and 1 cent per GB/month pricing.
Cloud Networking for Media
Speed is a feature, and latency is key in today’s media-driven Internet. Google operates its own private fiber network that spans the globe with points of presence (PoPs) at over 100 interconnection facilities across 33 countries. Learn how you can connect your place to ours using Cloud Interconnect, which privately connects your on-prem network to Google enabling lower latency, higher reliability and improved security.
