Content management systems which grow with your business

From a start-up local post house to the most complex, discrete multi-national spanning the globe
FlashNet will meet your requirements


SGL’s Open System architecture makes FlashNet the most accessible content storage management system available to the broadcast industry.

An XML-based API (Application Programming Interface) gives users the ability to create integrated applications to access the SGL content storage management system.

FlashNet is integrated via API with most hardware and middleware from the leading names in broadcast and media asset management.

Whatever the size or scope of your installation, FlashNet provides a content storage management system that works seamlessly across your organisation.


FlashNet has been designed with the facility to grow as your business needs develop. FlashNet’s modular structure provides systems on a single server at start-up, which can then scale to a cluster model with a theoretically infinite number of identical ‘nodes’.

Each of these provides high-speed access into and out of the archive for larger networked operations. Identical software is installed on each node in the cluster which allows any machine to perform any task as the system grows. In the event of a server loss, or during maintenance periods, the workload is automatically managed by another node in the cluster.

The SQL database at the centre of the archive is protected by the Microsoft clustering software, designed to provide instant failover in the event of a hardware fault.


Reliability of operation is paramount for every business and FlashNet’s clustered architecture makes it one of the most reliable content storage management systems available.

FlashNet’s power and resilience is also down to its unique clustered architecture, providing media and archive managers with the confidence to know that media held in the archive is safe.

FlashNet is backed by SGL Support Services which are designed to keep your system operational. Reliability is assured using a variety of on-line support tools, integrated logging processes, remote and if necessary on-site assistance.

SGL’s support services are available 24/7 for added comfort and reliability.


SGL FlashNet is the most scalable content storage management system available to the broadcast media industry, providing unrivalled levels of resilience, flexibility and adaptability. Regardless of size or environment, FlashNet’s clustered architecture and Open approach provide secure, future-proof business solution to grow as you do.
