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.)
