Panopto expands cloud video solutions with new data center in Australia
Published 30 November 2020
Video management system company Panopto has launched a new data center in Sydney, Australia, offering cloud-based video recording solutions to enterprises and higher education institutions in Australia and New Zealand.
The Panopto Cloud operates on multiple Amazon Web Services (AWS) availability zones, with the new data center established to respond to the accelerating global demand for video management capabilities to support distance learning and remote work.
“In the past year, demand for Panopto in Australia and New Zealand has surged, mirroring our global growth. The Panopto Cloud is built to scale, and we’re expanding in direct response to the rapid growth in distance learning and remote work,” said Sean Gorman, COO of Panopto.
Panopto Cloud leverages server redundancy technology to eliminate single points of failure to provide reliable access to Panopto in case of server failures.
Major universities, such as the University of Waikato in New Zealand, have begun storing content on the data center for its cloud-first system strategy.
“By storing our content in-region, Panopto is demonstrating its commitment to their customers in this region and it allows us to reduce operational costs whilst providing world-class continuity of service for our students and faculty,” said Eion Hall, CIO at the University of Waikato.
The Panopto Cloud is built on a multi-tenant architecture for high elastic scalability and enhanced security.
