During the summit, Alibaba Cloud inked agreements designed to help customers and partners accelerate their digital innovation capabilities with leading cloud computing technologies. One of these agreements has been signed with the country’s leading content provider, ABS-CBN.

“As more traditional media outlets enter the digital content world, the importance of data storage, management, and security is pushed to the forefront of conversations. We expect this initiative will help ABS-CBN create a new way of managing their content on cloud – lower latency, high availability, and providing the scale needed as they grow,” said Allen Guo, country manager for the Philippines, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence.

As ABS-CBN strengthens its foothold in the development and distribution of digital content, it needs a scalable storage service provider that not only enables real data management but also offers protection of existing data assets and reliable archiving.

Alibaba Cloud’s Object Storage Service (OSS), designed with 99.9% durability will provide ABS-CBN with industry-leading scalability and a high-availability cloud-based storage management system useful in its growing distribution efforts. OSS also offers ABS-CBN flexible, cost-effective archiving and data protection through its cloud backup feature, minimizing the need for physical infrastructure. Migrating existing data from one storage to another is also made seamless by the OSS through its compatibility with multiple online data sources.

“We want to expand our digital operations safely and efficiently to better serve Filipino audiences here and abroad. Alibaba Cloud, as a trusted cloud service provider with decades-long expertise and an established ecosystem of cloud-based platforms and services, empowers us to do that,” said Erwin Malimban, ABS-CBN head of broadcast technology.
