Media & Advertising Customers
What the Industry is Saying
"Because CTERA stored data on AWS, which increases scalability and performance, the customer no longer has to worry about how much data is stored. This is critical because the project files are getting bigger all the time. We’re already storing more than 200,000 assets at any given time for this customer, and that keeps increasing."
Shaun Gray, Global Chief Information Officer
"An edge-to-cloud approach like CTERA’s is becoming necessary for media companies to meet burgeoning requirements for both storage capacity and performance with the greatest economy."
Randy Kerns and Krista Macomber, Evaluator Group
“Security is one of the most important parts of the solution for this customer. For example, it has strict rules around where the actual data is stored,” says Gray. “With CTERA on AWS, we can ensure data protection and enhance security. Wellcom is now looking to expand the use of CTERA within the company while also bringing CTERA to additional customers in a range of industries."
Shaun Gray, Global Chief Information Officer
"As we faced the limitations of our on-premise storage infrastructure, our investigation into cloud and object storage-based platforms culminated in the CTERA global file system, which allowed us to consolidate virtualization, backups, storage, presentation, and sharing into a single solution."
Kyle Edsall, VP Technology
"CTERA allows us to adopt cloud technologies easily, and to avoid any performance or data security challenges."
