When an employee uploads a video intended for internal eyes only to a public sharing site like YouTube, Vimeo, DropBox, or Google Drive, their reasoning is almost never malicious. They just didn’t have a better option for sharing the file. Which means you need to give them one.
With Panopto’s video cloud, you can host private, internal videos securely. Employees can upload videos (or even record new ones) and share them with ease, while viewing permissions can be set at the library, folder, or individual recording level. And Panopto integrates with your Single Sign-On (SSO) identity management systems, so your sensitive video content is never inadvertently shared with the wrong audience.
Learning Management Systems (LMSs), Content Management Systems (CMSs), and other solutions typically used to store text documents just weren’t built to manage the size and complexity of large video files. By hosting video content in the cloud you can store all of your organization’s videos in one place without running out of space, no matter how many videos you have now or will create in the future.
With the Panopto video cloud, you never have to worry about purchasing additional hardware or upgrading servers in order to store your growing video library on-premises. Panopto takes care of upgrades and maintenance, ensuring you’re always running the newest and most secure version.
With mirrored storage and fail-safe recording, Panopto’s reliable cloud-based video platform protects you from data loss and service interruptions due to power outages, hardware failures, and other potentially catastrophic events.
Want proof? When a campus server malfunctioned during midterms at Thomas Jefferson University, Panopto kept recording and students still had access to study materials, despite the outage.
As you record more and more content, your video platform should be able to automatically increase its capacity to handle the encoding and viewing load. No other video platform vendor provides a cloud-based solution with greater scalability than Panopto.
Each month, Panopto Cloud streams more than 1.7 million hours (more than 200 years’ worth) of video to customers around the world. And Panopto’s unique support for elastic scaling helps maintain performance during demand spikes, which are typically seen during corporate events or university exam periods. Specifically, Panopto allocates new front-end, encoding, and data resources dynamically during these demand spikes, and deallocates these resources automatically during demand lulls.
When it comes to streaming video online, physical distance makes a difference. Local hosting can help you ensure faster video startup times and minimize buffering. That’s why Panopto offers regional video cloud hosting options globally, including instances in the US, Canada, the EU, and in Asia. We also partner with other cloud providers around the world, and support hosting private instances of our video platform on third-party cloud options like Amazon Virtual Private Cloud or Microsoft’s Azure cloud.
