Agama Technologies offers containerised solution
May 3, 2018
Agama Technologies, the specialist in video service quality and customer experience, has announced the launch of a fully containerised solution for monitoring, analytics and customer insights. This new functionality will be showcased at TV Connect, Digital Transformation World, ANGACOM and IBC.
The continuous evolution of OTT and other video services increase demand for flexible deployments and operations. Agama’s solutions now offer full support for cloud-based and containerised services throughout the operator’s production environment. These cover virtualised in-house deployments as well as public cloud environments, such as AWS and GCE.
“Today’s market requires any vendor to be at the forefront of cloud and virtualization” says Johan Görsjö, Agama director of product management. “We are proud to introduce container-based support for our products that enable operators to efficiently and quickly deploy systems in any environment; cloud, on-prem or any combination, to support customers wherever their video services are created and consumed”.
Containers allow for efficient use of computational resources: they provide fine-grained scaling and deployment of services instead of monoliths, as well as reduce dependencies between components. This lowers cost, reduces risks and increases operational agility for DevOps teams.
All Agama software has the possibility to deploy in container environments, such as Docker. The solution has extensive automation features, enabling systems to be automatically deployed and configured using the orchestration tool of the operator’s choice, such as Ansible or Chef – all to fully realize the potential that containers give.
