Loic Barbou Consultant, Bloomberg
Bloomberg Media solves cloud media workflows across hybrid and multi-cloud environments with Scality RING and Scality Zenko.
Loic Barbou presents at SDS Day NYC 2017 on Multi-Cloud data management for media content. Loic Barbou is a consultant to Bloomberg.
Bloomberg Media challenged themselves to build a global system for file, object, and cloud storage that would serve all of their storage and playback needs worldwide. The asked Scality to be the foundation of the enterprise storage solution, providing private & hybrid cloud, and a multi-cloud environment solution.
Bloomberg set a goal for storage: “anything from anywhere”. Scality helped them achieve it.

- Media file ingest
- Content distribution
- Scalability and durability standards that enable efficient, indefinite retention of their growing content
- Edit workflows
- Playback directly from Scality RING
- Supporting a global asset repository across multiple regions
Bloomberg’s view of storage started with some basic premises:
- Cloud egress is costly, and must be managed
- Storing content on multiple cloud providers has a lot of benefits if managed properly
- Public cloud storage doesn’t guarantee 100% uptime
- Global content lifecycle policies enable flexible, standardized and scalable data management
