The partnership sees VO solutions now integrated with the Kubernetes-based Google Cloud Anthos platform, which allows users to manage their data and applications in hybrid cloud environments.
Anthos also promises to unify the management of infrastructure and applications across on-premises, edge, and in multiple public clouds. VO said that operating its solutions on Anthos will accelerate the TV and video industry’s transition to cloud-native deployments.
Alain Nochimowski, CTO at Viaccess-Orca, said: “This collaboration with Google Cloud highlights our continued commitment to addressing the evolving infrastructure requirements of our customers while taking into account the reality of their deployments.
“Many of our customers will be operating a mix of on-premises and cloud infrastructure for years to come. By joining forces with Google Cloud, with the support of Orange, VO is offering service providers the ability to orchestrate and scale deployments based on micro-service architectures between different platforms and operation models, which is a critical requirement for success in the TV and video environment.”
eff Reed, Vice President of Product GKE and Anthos at Google Cloud, said: “We’re excited to join forces with Viaccess-Orca and lead the TV and video industry’s cloud-native transformation. The integration of Viaccess-Orca’s solutions with Google Cloud Anthos is a quantum leap forward in streamlining the deployment and manageability of TV platforms. With Anthos, cloud-native applications can be deployed from anywhere, enabling TV and video services to be launched faster and with a better ROI.”
