Cloud Case Study: Ooyala

Media Options

Powering a Private Cloud for Multiscreen Video

Ooyala is a media and entertainment company with viewers in 130 countries. It manages rapid growth with Cisco Metapod™, enabling efficient, streaming HD video services.


Ooyala understood the value of the cloud long ago. As the company’s footprint expanded, it needed a cost-effective way to scale.


Ooyala extended its physical infrastructure to accommodate a private cloud and implemented Cisco Metapod™. Today, the company cost-effectively scales personalized video delivery.


  • Obtained a lower-cost way to scale operations and reduce internal IT responsibilities.
  • Deployed the solution in different facilities all over the world
  • Supported plans to grow Ooyala’s on-premises cloud and to continue to use public cloud providers in a “hybrid cloud”
We’re getting all the cost savings and performance benefits we were looking for in an on-premises cloud.
