What is LMX Cloud
LMX Cloud is designed to assist customers on their journey to Cloud Native through infrastructure virtualisation and application containerisation, and ensure they enjoy the benefits of applying these Cloud techniques in a Media and Broadcast (M&B) IT environment.
Traditionally M&B houses would use single purpose, dedicated hardware for specific tasks, for example proprietary hardware for encoding, in-house servers for rendering and other for storage. Typical pain points include this mix of legacy hardware appliances with the added pressure of very specific storage requirements. With LMX Cloud, by virtualising legacy hardware solutions, our customers quickly realise the benefits of a Cloud approach with increased utilisation and decreased costs.
Control your cloud journey
Virtualise only what you needMoving from bare-metal to Cloud Native by virtualising your entire infrastructure is a huge leap. LMX Cloud’s has the ability to support bare-metal provisioning for certain legacy applications if required, enabling customers to make a gradual transition to Cloud-Native at a pace that suits them.
Containerised ApplicationsAs well as virtualisation, our software also supports containerised applications with simplified management via Kubernetes. Containerising your applications makes it easier to run them in any preferred Cloud environment, be it on premise with LMX Cloud or by bursting to public Cloud when the demand dictates.
