Interview

Please tell us about the company and the provided services.
YG PLUS music business CIC has launched a domestic and overseas music business with NAVER, and is currently operating record/album distribution activities.
YG PLUS, a subsidiary of YG Entertainment, is involved in multiple businesses such as music, advertisement, and MD. The music business CIC, newly established in September 2017, co-launched a domestic and overseas music business with NAVER and is supporting VIBE operations. Also, by distributing YG Entertainment's music content such as records by BLACKPINK and Winner and securing the rights to distribute various labels, we’re increasing our competitiveness.
Why did you choose the NAVER Cloud Platform?
We decided that NAVER PLATFORM had an advantage in communication and technical support, with its specialty in both global and local services.
IDC hosting, a traditional method of infrastructure structuring, requires additional management resources, and has a disadvantage of lacking efficiency in cost and resource distribution to deal with the fast-changing business environment. Especially due to many limitations to flexibility and expansion of IDC hosting, we chose a public cloud. Also, we realized that it has high technical capability and reliability with its experience of stably operating the portal service NAVER and messenger platform LINE. Our expectations that the NAVER Business Platform headquarters being in Korea would enable better communication and technical support was also a major reason for selecting NAVER Cloud.
What NAVER Cloud Platform services are you currently using and what help have you had since using it?
We're currently using Server, NAS, and Object Storage services. Especially, we were able to use big data without any capacity limitations through Object Storage.
Mass media data such as records and images needed for global music businesses has increased, therefore we needed a mass storage service that could handle this. Object storage could be used by providing HTTP/HTTPS protocol and it has the benefit of being able to be used without limitations to capacity. Currently, we’ve categorized data according to characteristic such as hot/warm data with high access frequency into NAS and cold data with low access frequency into object storage.
What are the distinctive features or advantages of NAVER Cloud Platform?
The NAVER Cloud Platform provides smooth customer support for solving problems and issues, and offers services at a reasonable price.
NAVER Business Platform’s headquarters is in Korea and most of its employees are Korean, which offers advantages regarding communication and technical support. For other cloud platforms, there were several difficulties with their headquarters abroad. It was often inefficient with a lot of time spent to solve problems, from a day or two to sometimes more than a week. This was even limited to customers that apply for paid technical support services. The NAVER Cloud Platform allowed all customers to receive high-quality technical support without additional cost, unlike other platforms that charged 10% of the user fee. Another advantage of NAVER CLOUD is its free security service Basic Security.
What kind of services do you want to provide using the NAVER Cloud Platform in the future?
We will continuously work hard to develop and improve the environment of the music industry. Also, we’re planning to expand to the global market based on the experiences gained in Korea and the creative capabilities of YG.
