Canto Launches SaaS Solution Flight

Canto, a leading provider of digital asset management software and services, today announced the launch of Canto Flight, a new cloud-based system to intelligently handle growing volumes of rich media files. Flight, based on the three core values of simplicity, beauty and enterprise strength, combines digital asset management best practices with the intuitiveness of typical consumer applications – allowing customers to store, capture metadata, sort, filter and share visual content quickly and easily.

“Marketing and creative teams love the convenience afforded by today’s file sharing tools, yet many companies are outgrowing the processes they’ve established around such systems to handle their ever-expanding digital libraries,” stated Leslie Weller, Marketing Director at Canto. “To address this need, we developed Flight, a simple, yet far more intelligent way to store, find and share rich media files. We’ve taken our deep digital asset management expertise and created a whole new experience for customers to interact with their valuable digital content.”

Engineered to minimize clicks and get customers to their branded assets faster, Flight is visually stunning to browse as an image and video library with various thumbnail sizes, full screen previews and multi-format video playback capabilities. Upon upload, Flight offers single click access to smartalbums that automatically assign all images, videos, audio files, presentations and documents into their respective content groupings. Users can also mark any file as a “Favorite” to access frequently used content at any time with a single-tap and collaboration is enabled through Flight’s commenting feature.

Jack McGannon, Canto CEO, added, “Flight was developed for the increasing number of organizations looking to access applications in the cloud rather than deploy on their own infrastructure. With its cloud, social and mobile focus, it is a terrific complement to our long-proven Cumulus solutions. We believe the addition of Flight allows us to offer a full range of digital asset management options to our customers, with solutions tailored uniquely to their specific deployment and workflow requirements.”

Features available in this first version of Flight include: keywords to maintain a controlled vocabulary, tags for users to add freeform labels, descriptions, commenting, metadata ingestion, sorting, filtering, search, folders and albums for hierarchical structuring of content, sharing via email and Dropbox with associated expiration dates on shared links. Flight also boasts the ability to easily brand the platform to give Canto’s customers and their audiences a familiar look and feel when browsing or downloading shared content, as well as an iPad app.

Flight runs on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud and is now available directly from Canto on a subscription basis, with an Economy bundle package starting at USD $6,000 per year.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
