MapR technology will underpin the KODAKOne Platform a revolutionary blockchain based image rights management and protection platform that seamlessly registers, manages and enables the monetization of digital assets ultimately allowing a secure, scalable and cost-efficient solution for big data services

Los Angeles, CA , Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  RYDE, the creator and operator of the KODAKOne Platform Image Rights Platform, has selected the MapR Data Platform as the underlying data platform for its KOKAKOne blockchain-based image rights management platform. MapR will provide data services for the KODAKOne Platform, help to support overall compliance for KODAKOne’s internal processing and data access, and provide the requisite security features it needs to be fully protected.

KODAKOne is a revolutionary blockchain based image rights management and protection platform that seamlessly registers, manages and enables the monetization of digital assets. Its unique ability to identify the creator of any image and document its data immutably on the blockchain, solves one of the biggest problems the industry is facing today in that no image can legally be commercialized unless the owner is identified. This will inevitably change the way that billions of digital pictures and videos uploaded every day can and will be used in the future.

Volker Brendel, CIO at KODAKOne commented: “The KODAKOne Platform has been designed to simplify the process of protecting and licensing digital assets so that photographers are free to concentrate on producing fantastic imagery. In order to deliver this, it’s critical that the platform has the right data capabilities. As the only enterprise-ready big data solution on the market, the MapR Data Platform was the obvious choice for integration with our solution. With MapR technology, we benefit from stability, speed, flexibility and security whilst also reducing our platform transaction costs massively in the short, mid and long term.”

The MapR solution is able to combine different data services within a single platform, drawing on multiple data centres and several global cloud providers to give the KODAKOne Platform the power it needs to develop at speed and perform as an enterprise-grade solution.

The flexibility of the MapR Data Platform and its use of industry-standard APIs meant that the KODAKOne Platform did not have to be built using complex Open Source tooling, therefore driving down costs and timelines.

“The protection of digital assets has never been so necessary and it is clear that the capabilities of the KODAKOne Platform will be highly valuable for photographers who need to protect their imagery and therefore their livelihoods,” said Jim Stock, VP of EMEA for MapR. “The MapR Data Platform will provide KODAKOne with the level of data services it needs to give end users the best possible functionality, while allowing KODAKOne to scale securely and add new applications as required.”
