Kontiki: A New Approach To Enterprise Content Delivery

Startup offers video-based solutions for employee training, communication, and more. Watch our Valley View elevator pitch session with Kontiki's CEO.

Whether video's dominance on the Internet also holds true on corporate networks is debatable, but it is certainly becoming a more common way to communicate with and train employees. Kontiki has been quietly garnering the enterprise video distribution business of companies like GM, Nestle, Coca Cola, and Wells Fargo, to name just a few.

Actually, Kontiki is more than just video. Think of it as enterprise content delivery--like a CDN, but it moves content inside the firewall. And it's doing this for some pretty large enterprise organizations. At Nestle, for example, Kontiki manages some 2,000 videos on the company's Intranet.

In our Valley View Elevator Pitch session, Kontiki CEO Dan Vetras talks about how the company's secret sauce is compelling IT shops to consider an approach that Vetras says obviates the need for expensive WAN acceleration hardware. (The system takes video into a remote branch one time and distributes it peer-to-peer throughout the network.)

Be sure to tune into our October Valley View, on October 24 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time, where we'll have more startups--including Taptera (enterprise mobile applications), Alteryx (big data), and Hearsay Social (social enterprise). We'll also feature conversations with Cisco CEO John Chambers and Oracle president Mark Hurd. You can also register for the October Valley View show and have a chance to win some excellent gear.
