Cloud Hosted DAM

Owning and managing a large, valuable content store means finding the right location to host your service. While it would often be ideal to store media in house, unless you have a good internet connection and DMZ for hosting services, this will limit your ability to interact with customers, suppliers and partners.

Third Light can supply and host a complete solution so you can run your new digital asset management system on a high-performance internet connection, with reliable storage and backups.
