09.10.2014 - Microsoft Azure Media Services adds new cloud-first live streaming, content protection and indexing services



View Microsoft-Press related news.

REDMOND , Wash. Sept . 10, 2014 Wednesday, before the opening day of the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), Microsoft Corp. announced new cloud-first media services, including HD-quality live streaming that supports today’s most popular devices and platforms, end-to-end content protection capabilities, and a new service that simplifies the indexing of audio and video content and makes it easier to search. These new capabilities are part of Microsoft Azure Media Services, a comprehensive platform built on a market-proven public cloud that media companies can use to build scalable, cost-effective and end-to-end media solutions.

“Broadcasters and premium content owners spend significant amounts of money and resources each year to host, manage, support and distribute their media,” said Sudheer Sirivara, partner director of Engineering, Azure Media Services, Microsoft. “Now with Azure Media Services, customers can move that infrastructure to the cloud — with support for live and on-demand content — and focus on what really matters to their business and customers: creating, monetizing and distributing content to more customers on more devices.”

New partner solutions

Since Azure Media Services was initially released in 2012, a broad ecosystem of industry partners have built integrated solutions that offer customers flexibility and choice for their media workflows. Microsoft is now adding four new partners to that ecosystem:

  • Telestream’s Wirecast offers customers a built-in destination that makes it quick and easy to send content from Wirecast’s live streaming production software to Microsoft Azure.

  • NewTek TriCaster offers customers a total media publishing solution for live productions of any scale and includes the ability to ingest mezzanine stream over Real-Time Messaging Protocol.

  • Cires21 offers customers a simple and easy-to-use service to help monitor the health of live channels.

  • JW Player offers customers the ability to customize and distribute premium adaptive content to a wide array of devices.

Additional information

More information on the new cloud services and partnerships announced today is available at the Microsoft Azure blog and the Microsoft booths at the IBC in Hall 13, booths MS1 and MS2.

Founded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT”) is the worldwide leader in software, services, devices and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential.

Introducing Open PostgreSQL Monitoring (OPM)

Paris, September 8th 2014

Oversee and Manage Your PostgreSQL Servers

The OPM Development Group (see below) is proud to present the first public release of Open PostgreSQL Monitoring, a fully open source monitoring suite for PostgreSQL.

Get Graphs and Stats from your PostgreSQL instances!

PostgreSQL may be the most advanced database in the world but one of its biggest handicap is the lack of open source dedicated monitoring tools. Compared to its competitors, the PostgreSQL community has not been able to produce tools similar to Oracle Grid Control, MySQL Workbench or SQL Server Management Studio.

Today we'd like to present the OPM project: a fully open-source suite designed to provide dynamic graphs, custom stats series, performance analysis, server health overview and team management...

If you have serveral postgres servers in production, Open PostgreSQL Monitoring is the perfect to watch the current activity of your databases, with DBA-centric stats such as: database size, hit ratio, streaming replication lag, system load, page bloat, longest queries, WAL files generation, locks, backends status, etc.

Extensibility is the key

This initial public version is obviously a first step toward more features and more versatility.

OPM includes remote agents, a stat storage system and a web GUI. Most of the code is currently in Perl and the stat collection is based on Nagios, but the whole suite is designed to be extended to other monitoring frameworks and other languages. It is possible to your own remote agent, a specific stat storage or even an alternative user interface.

The OPM project was started in 2012 and it's been used in production for months, monitoring dozens of servers like a charm. We're publishing today the version 2.3 with the hope that it will be useful for other PostgreSQL users around the world.

Credits

The OPM Development Group would like to thank all the developers who contributed to this release, especially Sebastien Fauveau from Art is Code for his UI/UX design skills.

OPM is an open project available under the PostgreSQL License. Any contribution to build a better tool is welcome. You just have to send your ideas, features requests or patches using the GitHub tools or directly to contact@opm.io

Links


About OPM :

Open PostgreSQL Monitoring is a free software designed to help you manage your PostgreSQL servers. It's a flexible tool that will follow the activity of each instance. It can gather stats, display dashboards and send warnings when something goes wrong. The long-term goal of the project is to provide similar features to those of Oracle Grid Control or SQL Server Management Studio.

Code & Demo at http://opm.io/


About the OPM Development Group :

This project is driven by the OPM Development Group (OPMDG), a team of developers gathered to build efficient monitoring tools for PostgreSQL. So far the main sponsor of this project is DALIBO, the leading PostgreSQL company in France. However the project team is open to ideas and contributions: individuals and companies who share the goals of the OPMDG are welcome to join the team!
