Playout Business Continuity using Morpheus and ICE Deployed in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Technical Brief (TB-PUB-2-0906A-EN) File size: 655.1 KB, posted Apr 02 2020 There are many reasons why running a playout system within the public cloud is attractive: hosting short-term "popup" channels, for example, where you only pay for channels when they are being used, or a disaster recovery system designed to offer business continuity when the main site is compromised. A facility might be compromised by a force majeure (e.g., flooding, fire, prolonged electrical outage), and thus cannot be operated by staff. Or there may be a case where the main facility is fully operational but staff cannot be on site due to unsafe or hazardous conditions. A scenario where staff cannot be on site lends itself to using a system hosted in the public cloud which can be accessed from any location that has an internet connection.
