What are some of the most effective ways to use Blitline File Processing-as-Service (FPaaS) to achieve business goals?
Blitline FPaaS has been credited with improving core product innovation through reduced platform maintenance, lower technical debt, and improved utilization of DevOps resources. Here are just a few of the use case where Blitline FPaaS is used to enhance the ability to achieve business goals.

1. Adding image, document and media processing to your Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) playbook

Your team likely already uses numerous cloud IaaS solutions today because it doesn’t make sense to re-create enterprise solutions that can are available more efficiently, cost effectively and securely versus building in-house solutions – even if they incorporate Open Source solutions such as Image Magick and FFMpeg.

As IBM states on their Cloud Blog: “Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) delivers fundamental compute, network, and storage resources to consumers on-demand, over the internet, and on a pay-as-you-go basis. Using an existing infrastructure on a pay-per-use scheme seems to be an obvious choice for companies saving on the cost of investing to acquire, manage, and maintain an IT infrastructure.”

Blitline FPaaS fits squarely embodies this value proposition, which is why a growing number of companies are incorporating Blitline into their platform IaaS vendor portfolios.

2. Replacing an in-house solution with Blitline FPaaS to boost capabilities and security

With Blitline’s broad and deep library of off-the-shelf transformations – plus our enterprise-grade security and ability to add new capabilities on demand – make Blitline the sensible choice to replace your existing in-house and Open Source solution. These are just a few of the reasons why customers switch to Blitline as an alternative to Image Magick and an alternative to FFMpeg. Check out our Why Blitline page to learn more.

The #1 reason why platform providers in digital asset management, photography, digital education, and other industries switch to Blitline is for cost savings, mainly because most bulk image and media processing services charge by the gigabyte. Their unoptimized cost structure translates into higher prices for customers. A superior solution provider will have lower cost structures to lessen costs to customers, effectively sharing the savings.

Additional reasons that customers switch to Blitline include: fewer size limits per job, fewer limits on jobs per second, support for multiple media formats beyond just images, automatic management of color profiles, free bandwidth for moving files, and other features and support at no extra cost

In this use case, Blitline can optimize whatever service you current use for image or document processing, image or document storage, or other file processing jobs.
