Hiverlab is an award-winning, innovative media technology company based in Singapore. It focuses on immersive technologies like mixed reality, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) to redefine human interaction and enable digital transformation. Hiverlab worked with more than 100 clients worldwide across various industries and seeks to shape the future with immersive technologies.02
Being at the forefront of immersive technologies, Hiverlab needed a reliable and stable cloud platform that meets the intense performance demands concerning compute, storage, and networking. It also required optimized cloud solutions that meet its diverse business scenarios, simplify deployment, and allow easy production and development environment maintenance while minimizing operation & maintenance (O&M) burden. With a global customer base, Hiverlab was looking for a cloud provider offering a wide range of cloud services with a significant global presence.03
Why Alibaba Cloud
Being the No. 1 cloud provider in the Asia Pacific and having a strong presence with 21 global data centers and 64 availability zones, Alibaba Cloud has become the best choice for Hiverlab. Moreover, Alibaba Cloud’s comprehensive set of media-related solutions are ideal for Hiverlab’s requirements. Alibaba Cloud’s proven track record of providing high-performance solutions related to video on demand, event-driven serverless computing, and object storage has led to Hiverlab’s confidence and trust in partnering with Alibaba Cloud. Hiverlab could leverage Alibaba Cloud’s innovative solutions and superior services in VR, AR, and mixed reality to stay ahead of the competition and accelerate its go-to-market readiness.04
Hiverlab hosted VR videos on ApsaraVideo VOD and used ApsaraVideo VOD APIs to upload and manage VR videos. It relied on Function Compute, a fully-managed and event-driven computing service, to run production applications with variable compute needs. This approach also helped minimize the burden of operation & maintenance (O&M), enabling Hiverlab’s teams to focus more on developing cutting-edge VR solutions and immersive technology applications.
Among the other Alibaba Cloud’s solutions and services, Hiverlab used Object Storage Service (OSS) to store and manage large amounts of VR videos securely while also managing to attain lower storage costs. For more general-purpose workloads and deployments, Hiverlab used Elastic Compute Service (ECS), which enabled it to achieve performance and scalability goals reliably at a faster rate.05
Hiverlab aims to be a frontrunner in developing and offering next-gen immersive technology solutions. Therefore, it continues to embrace innovation and strives to exceed expectations in the field. By partnering with Alibaba Cloud, Hiverlab was able to double-down its focus on innovation, empowering it to focus on building, deploying and managing products and workloads. Alibaba Cloud’s state of the art cloud solutions enable Hiverlab to push boundaries and achieve its goals continuously in a dynamic, competitive landscape.
