Live Media Content Provider

Produce, manage, and provide media content for sports, news, and other industries on a cost-effective, cloud-based media production platform


Live Media Content Provider is a process-based, integrated solution based on Alibaba Cloud Elastic Compute Service (ECS), Elastic Block Storage (EBS), Object Storage Service (OSS), and Elastic Desktop Service (EDS). The Live Media Content Provider file system and content distribution system are deployed automatically to support mainstream post-editing software with web-based editing and remote editing capabilities and converge a professional media processing workflow. Live Media Content Provider also supports resource scaling and parallel access to maximize productivity.

Solution Highlights

  • Ready-to-Use Cloud Deployment

    Dedicated images and TerraForm automation capabilities enable minute-level storage and system resource deployment. You can merge data from ingests, tags, catalogs, searches, rough edits, and footage to third-party non-linear editing (NLE) software through simple configuration.

  • Seamless Proxy Editing

    This solution transcodes Hi-Res clips in OSS to proxy in one click and uses them for asset management. High-Res and proxy support one-click conversion. You can complete content editing based on web flow directly or download proxy files for remote side local editing and convert Hi-Res content to proxy in one click.

  • Media Workflow Storage

    This is the perfect combination of a distributed parallel file system and media production workflow. It is deployed on top of the storage layer and computing resources so users can scale the compute instances and storage capacity in or out for different total bandwidth targets and total storage space requirements.

How It Works


Live Media Content Provider takes Alibaba Cloud's global cloud server (ECS), block storage (EBS), and object storage (OSS) as the core products of the solution. At the same time, it focuses on the production and distribution needs of sports and news industries in lightweight, low-cost, post-editing scenarios.


  • • Alibaba Cloud server ECS is built on a high-quality, proprietary network. The overall architecture is self-controlled, with high stability, reliability, security, and flexibility to meet business needs in different user scenarios.
    • EBS provides block-level random storage with low latency, high persistence, and high reliability for ECS to support an elastic parallel file system suitable for content production scenarios.
    • OSS adopts multi-redundant architecture design based on data cross-regional replication and peer redundancy, version control, and other technologies to ensure high data reliability while providing video content uploading and hierarchical preservation functions.
    • EDS provides a secure, efficient, and easy-to-use DaaS service. You can scale up resources flexibly without purchasing or installing hardware.
