First Look at Google Compute Engine for Video Transcoding

First Look at Google Compute Engine for Video Transcoding | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

For those of us in the cloud computing world, the most exciting thing that came out of Google I/O this year wasn’t skydivers wearing Glass, and it wasn’t a new tablet. The big news was that Google is getting into the cloud infrastructure-as-a-service space, currently dominated by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Specifically, Google has launched a new service called Google Compute Engine to compete with Amazon EC2.

 

This is exciting. The world needs another robust, performant, well-designed, cloud virtual machine service. With apologies to Rackspace and others, this has been a single-player space for a long time – EC2 is far and away the leader. Google obviously has the expertise and scale to be a serious competitor, if they stick with it. How does it look?

 

Early reports are positive. Google Compute Engine (GCE) is well designed, well executed, and based on infrastructure Google has been using for years. Performance is good – especially disk I/O, boot times, and consistency, which historically haven’t been EC2′s strong suit.

 

But how well suited is GCE for cloud video transcoding? We have some preliminary results, acknowledging that more testing needs to be done. Here are some basic tests of video transcoding and file transfer using Zencoder software on both GCE and EC2.

Vanguard Video Announces Availability of World's First Real-Time, Pure Software HEVC Encoder [PR]

Vanguard Video Announces Availability of World's First Real-Time, Pure Software HEVC Encoder [PR] | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Vanguard Video announces the availability of V.265, a new professional encoder based on the next-generation HEVC (H.265) International Draft Standard. Vanguard Video first demonstrated its HEVC encoder technology at IBC 2012, and now releases V.265 for evaluation by companies involved in high-demand video applications. V.265 can deliver up to 50% reduction in bandwidth and improved video quality compared to that of the existing H.264 standard.

 

V.265 allows OEMs to determine HEVC's improvements in quality and performance and can take advantage of Vanguard Video's patented video compression technology yielding high-quality video while maintaining real-time operation. In addition, V.265 provides a powerful toolset for offline encoding especially suited for Cloud-based encoding implementations.
