Overall Satisfaction with Cloudinary

We are using Cloudinary for our Timeline feature. People post photos and videos, and we transform them to generate different variants for different device groups with better compression. It is used by the Engineering team in the server-side generation of photo/video variant generations. It helps us in optimizing the size of photos and making the user experience better. Network bandwidth gets reduced with it.
  • Cloudinary is the best in the market for photo and video transformations.
  • Cloudinary takes customer's requests for special features and implements them very quickly.
  • Pricing is a bit high, and this is the area where they need to adjust.
  • They are great in scaling but they may need to do bit more for infinite scaling.
  • It is best for generating optimal photo/video variants.
  • Network bandwidth decreased, and UX became much better.
We evaluated Bitmovin, Fastly, Anvato, etc. There is no one solution that gives both photo/video transformation with realtime availability.
Team responds in very reasonable time. I would say, support is good overall.
