Case Study: Ooyala Goes Global

Ooyala is one of the leading providers of various software and services that focus on producing, streaming, and monetizing over-the-top video. They have a large group of remote workers and 9 global offices. With these worldwide operations, Ooyala’s Global IT director Andy Halvorsen needed to have a method that helps him keep tabs on all of the end users, regardless of location.

Ooyala’s Case Study

Andy had a setup that was working with on-prem RADIUS and OpenLDAP™ implementations, but it complicated his ability to efficiently manage Ooyala’s global operations. While they are powerful tools, they require a lot of time and work to maintain. As a result, Andy knew that he wanted a cloud-based solution instead. That’s when he found JumpCloud.

Now, Andy and his team at Ooyala are at JumpCloud and have a centralized and efficient way to handle RADIUS and LDAP authentication. Check out Andy’s story by reading our case study: “Ooyala Goes Global With Cloud-Based Control of LDAP & RADIUS.” You can find it by clicking on the image below.

Ooyala was able to overcome their challenges through a cloud-based directory.

“In this day and age of the cloud, IT is moving towards a one-system view. It just makes more sense to be able to manage that from a central place – and that’s why JumpCloud became such a perfect tool for us.”

Try a Cloud-Based Directory for Yourself

With the increasing globalization of companies all over, including remote workers and offices around the world, it’s increasingly important for IT to be able to have tools that can manage from anywhere. Don’t let your remote workers and distant offices get out of your reach anymore. With a cloud-based directory like Directory-as-a-Service®, you can manage users all over the world from one centralized location. JumpCloud’s centralized directory allows admins to control systems (Windows, Mac, Linux), cloud and on-prem servers (AWS, GCE), web and on-prem applications (SAML, LDAP) cloud and local storage (Samba and NAS file servers), and wired and WiFi networks through a cloud RADIUS.
