Synamedia, HPE OEM deal

May 4, 2020

Video software provider Synamedia has signed an OEM agreement with edge-to-cloud platform-as-a-service company Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to use HPE ProLiant servers to power its solutions and further advance its video network portfolio.

It suggests the agreement will help customers optimise capital expenditure (CAPEX) with faster deployment, increased productivity, simplified operations and enhanced end-to-end security. Synamedia’s content delivery network (CDN) solution optimises hardware provided by HPE to deliver the best combination of price and performance, with the ability to scale in minutes.

“We are dedicated to partnering with companies that share our commitment to transforming the way the world is entertained and informed,” declared Julien Signes, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Video Network, Synamedia. “This is why we’re thrilled to work with HPE, who has just been recognised by Gartner for its commitment to evolve IT infrastructure. For scalability and channel availability, broadcasters, content owners and service providers must transition from hardware to software-based solutions, and they need to work with a partner who can manage the transition to a virtualised network, end-to-end, with reliability. Our portfolio and expertise offer the full package to help customers achieve this transformation, and working with a proven partner like HPE will help them get there quickly and securely.”

“As the consumption of digital media content continues to expand, and becomes a lifeline to many consumers given the current ‘shelter at home’ environment, content providers need robust infrastructure to deliver continuous information and entertainment services to consumers,” explained Phillip Cutrone, vice president and general manager, Worldwide OEM at HPE. “By combining HPE OEM ProLiant Gen 10 servers that extend industry-leading performance, security and versatility, with Synamedia’s software-defined video network solutions, TV and media network providers can quickly deploy reliable, scalable platforms with a focus on extending and delivering enhanced experiences to customers.”
