Nowhere has the explosion of information and data had a greater impact on operations than the Media & Entertainment industry. As the streaming of movies, music, books and games reaches even our handheld mobile devices, media and entertainment companies face enormous challenges. Businesses not only need tremendous computing power to create new media, they need to store and manage unimaginable amounts of data, move enormous files at lightspeed across global networks, analyze usage and preferences among millions of customers, and secure everything against digital pirates and hackers.

Red8 specializes in cloud-based systems, including those that replace of traditional office and operations networks. Using new thin client architectures and virtual desktop infrastructures, Red8 can dramatically reduce both security threats and maintenance costs, while improving mobility and ease of asset management.
Red8 also offers financing and leasing options, such as Device as a Service, in which ownership, maintenance and life-cycle management across a fleet of devices can be managed as leased equipment, substantially shifting CapEx costs on infrastructure to OpEx costs for managed equipment. These programs make it easier to manage assets, contain costs, and offload maintenance and end-of-life management for IT assets.
