SymplyNEBULA is an affordable media-centric cloud-based production, archive, and backup service designed for content creators.
Media and entertainment companies are looking to the cloud to improve productivity, secure content for long term archive, and free up expensive production storage. But there’s always been a trade off: speed and capabilities vs. cost. Until now.
The problem was that content creators had to decide if they wanted fast, configurable cloud storage or a low cost that often compromised speed and power. Large providers are often slow and they charge for retrieving content, but offer great capabilities. On the other hand, the smaller providers were sometimes faster and charged less for content retrieval but either suffered from a lack of capabilities or a real understanding of how media professionals work.
With SymplyNEBULA the trade is a thing of the past. You no longer need to choose between affordability, speed, and capabilities. SymplyNEBULA’s media-centric cloud storage solution is designed to meet the needs of content creators and owners by offering outstanding performance regardless of how much storage you use. And it’s affordable, with low per-Terabyte monthly costs and no content retrieval charges. Ever.
Just determine your monthly storage requirement in terabytes, reserve that capacity, and that’s all you pay for.
What’s more, here’s no hard limit - you can add as much capacity into SymplyNEBULA as you need, and we’ll just bill you for the difference. Simple.
SymplyNEBULA provides the simple and safe cloud storage you need.

SymplyNEBULA also provides the options to make up to three-way replicas of your data, allowing for greater sharing of data between geos or geo redundancy.
Imagine a “bucket” of content in Los Angeles, and having a replica in London, Tokyo, or New York. The content seamlessly shows up in both places with no user interaction required. And it works with any of the cities in our network - you can replicate across two or three sites.
SymplyNEBULA supports distributed applications that require low latency reads and writes. This allows for a bucket within SymplyNEBULA to be accessed by applications running in multiple cloud platforms including AWS, Azure, and GCP. This allows you to choose the best of breed cloud platform for any task such as transcoding or facial recognition without being locked into expensive storage from any single provider.
