MapR Customer: KODAKOne

KODAKOne selects MapR as Underlying Data Platform for Blockchain-based Image Marketplace

KODAKOne, the blockchain-based image rights management platform, will utilize the MapR Data Platform for a range of data services and digital asset storage. A beta version of the KODAKOne product is due to launch in late 2018.

The KODAKOne Platform is an image protection, monetization and distribution platform secured in blockchain. It will provide an image marketplace where users can buy, sell and trade photos based on licensing terms and conditions – serving as a one-stop shop for photographers’ management, protection and distribution needs. The platform will create an encrypted ledger of rights ownership for photographers to protect, manage and monetize their new and archived works – making it significantly cheaper and faster to register, move and sell their digital images.

MapR will provide all data services for the KODAKOne Platform, offering enterprise-ready software which can scale as required. The ability of the MapR solution to integrate easily with micro-service based architectures will allow KODAKOne to develop and upgrade the platform with new applications when needed. The MapR platform will help to support overall compliance for KODAKOne internal processing and data access, as well as providing the requisite security features it needs to be fully protected.

“The KODAKOne Platform has been designed to simplify the process of protecting, distributing 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,” Volker Brendel, CTO at KODAKOne explained.

“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 centers 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.”
