The Soft Serve platform will be able to store your favorite music, videos, and photos, but its biggest use may be as a hosting service.
The service will be developed by Soft Serve, an Australian startup with offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
According to Soft Serve’s website, Soft Serve is a “multi-purpose cloud hosting platform for music, video, and audio content.”
Its “core services include: music hosting, media streaming, online video, social networking, and online video sharing,” and its “core technology is hosted on servers in Australia and Europe.”
In the company’s whitepaper, Soft Serves goal is to “offer the largest online music streaming service in the world.”
It will also offer a “massive storage solution for artists and music publishers” as well as hosting services for other media types.
In addition to the music storage, Soft serve will offer “a rich catalog of music-related content,” including “streaming, streaming media, podcasts, and video content.”
That includes streaming media from Amazon and Spotify, along with content from the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube.
Soft Serve has a goal of hosting about 300,000 hours of streaming media per day.
The company’s roadmap also notes that it plans to offer “streamer, audio, and music streaming in the cloud” in the future.
Soft serve’s cloud-hosting plan is slated to be launched in June 2019.
“We are excited to work with Soft Serve and look forward to delivering the largest streaming media hosting service available in Australia,” says Rob McLeod, CEO of Soft Serve Group, a venture-capital-backed music hosting company.
“Soft Serve has built a successful and loyal following of music fans and creators across Australia and the world who are looking for a great hosting solution for their content.”
As of December 2017, Soft service had 6,000,000 subscribers, according to Softserve.com.
