Elvis DAM powers WoodWing Cloud

Elvis DAM for WoodWing Cloud is the backbone of this solution, allowing users to easily upload, manage and share their digital assets across multiple applications, and re-use them in applications inside and outside the WoodWing Cloud. It runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and data is stored on Amazon´s S3 storage platform, ensuring high availability and optimal performance. WoodWing operates WoodWing Cloud instances in Europe, North America, Australia and Singapore, with more to follow, so that customers can store their content in accordance with regional data protection and privacy regulations.

Elvis DAM for WoodWing Cloud provides a fully featured management console to easily manage users, groups and rule-based permissions, as well as metadata field permissions. The search engine is powered by Elasticsearch, ensuring maximum performance even for massive data sets. Up to 1 billion assets can be managed with no loss in efficiency, thanks to the architecture of Elvis DAM. As a cloud-based application, Elvis DAM does not impose upon users the need to deal with scaling issues such as storage space.

Digital asset management has evolved from a niche application into the basis of all content-driven business environments. It was logical to use Elvis as the core for developing a platform for working with digital content — the WoodWing Cloud,” said Roel-Jan Mouw, CEO of WoodWing Software. “We are delighted to be able to support brands and media with this offer to master their content challenges today and in the future through an easy-to-subscribe-to service with no need for hardware or CAPAX.
