Qumu has made significant investments to bring its enterprise video platform in the cloud in order to bring better video to everyone.
Vern Hanzlik, president of Qumu, said: “Running our video services on IBM Cloud’s SoftLayer infrastructure is only going to improve our customers’ video experience.”

Thanks to IBM cloud, Qumu has improved the control over and visibility into its SoftLayer cloud that helps the company to fine-tune and optimize its infrastructure in terms of performance and cost. It provisions both bare metal and virtual servers on demand through SoftLayer’s API, and can spin up servers in real time to accommodate peaks in customer demand.

Qumu is also utilizing SoftLayer’s interconnected cloud data centers and points of presence (POPs) to provide the low-latency connections. Qumu plans to target and grow its SMB customer base.

Previously, Qumu used a competing cloud provider for its workloads in the U.S. and Europe. IBM did not share the name of competitors. IBM mainly competes with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

Qumu, which has offices in the U.S., London, Hyderabad, Dubai, Asia and beyond, is planning to use SoftLayer’s locations in the Asia-Pacific region to expand its services into APAC by mid-year 2015.
