Kollective Announces Collaboration with Microsoft Azure to Provide Enterprise Video Solutions
Kollective to move its Software Defined Enterprise Content Delivery Network and their Kontiki Enterprise Video Platform to Azure
Sunnyvale, Calif. — August 25th, 2015 — Kollective, a leading cloud-based software defined networking company, today announced an alliance with Microsoft to provide a differentiated scalable approach to distributing enterprise video. Kollective will be moving its cloud based Kontiki Enterprise Video Platform and its Kollective Software Defined Enterprise Content Delivery Network to Azure.
Kollective currently has over 2.5 million users using its highly differentiated SD based ECDN within many of the world’s most important brands. Over half of these users already leverage Kollective’s integrations with Microsoft SharePoint or Skype for Business (formerly Lync), making the Microsoft Cloud a logical next step. “This is a really important step for Kollective. Azure is a natural choice for us due to their leadership position within the enterprise. The performance, scalability and security of Azure will greatly benefit our customers as their need for video grows,” said Dan Vetras, Kollective CEO. “The initial response from our customers has been excellent.”
“This collaboration demonstrates the strength of our Azure Media Services Platform and further emphasizes our commitment to our partner ecosystem in the enterprise video market,” comments Auste Viesulas, Business Development Director, Azure Media Services.
Kollective will be launching its first customers on Azure later this year.
