The AXCP Content Processing Media Grid is an open solution to set up architectures of media computing and semantic grid, for massive information management following business rules, growth and integration demands, big data management. AXCP supports a large range of possible applications for massive and parallel processing integrated with databases, back offices, workflows, data crawling, collectors, Content and Data Management Systems, CMS/DMS, and web servers. AXCP reduces costs and increase efficiency by an automated information, media and content management. AXCP is most complete media grid AXCP is a solution to set up scalable grid computing, at low costs, reliable and simple to install; to be used in conjunction with other applications, enforcing scalability, intelligence processing capabilities, batch processing, cloud computing, etc.
