MacRumors community tells about a brilliant example of what easy-to-integrate computing capacity can enable: Digital video recorders produce enormous amounts of content. Encoding this content on a regular Mac HTPC can take a long time.
Distributed encoding and sharing the workload across several computers can speed up the process dramatically. Setting up a private media encoding cloud with the Techila middleware is easy. In this case, an one-evening project (including the integration of the existing application). Powering the encoder with the flexibly scalable capacity of the cloud was an easy project.
If the operators would provide faster uplinks, this could be a brilliant hybrid cloud use case for anyone archiving a digital media library.
What will be your application for the Techila middleware?
