Cumulus is now Canto

For years, Cumulus defined the digital asset management industry. Now, it’s evolved into Canto, a cloud-based tool built for the modern era.

Why Canto?

We want to provide our customers the best possible DAM experience – and that’s Canto. All of the passion and know-how that makes Cumulus great lives on in Canto. Canto already offers many features not available in Cumulus, and there are more to come as we continue to be the innovation leaders in digital asset management.

Intuitive Interface

Hit the ground running with little to no training.

Modern Features

Cutting-edge digital asset management tools for faster workflows.

Easy Maintenance

You can set up and customize everything yourself – no IT resources needed.

Unparalleled Service

Sony Europe

It’s a complete relief that I know where everything is, everything is immediately accessible, on a super-quick platform. I can always rely on Canto being there in the background like a big shopping trolley with everything I need in it.


I wanted more control over how our assets were photographed, stored and shared. We looked at several solutions, and Canto had the best user interface, in both the backend and the frontend. The search and filter tools are pretty magical.

Our success with Canto has been defined by providing a streamlined, professional and collaborative experience for our customers, vendors and partners. Canto has taken the guesswork and stress out of digital asset management.


With everything managed centrally, our workflows have gotten a lot faster. We’re now able to deliver content to global markets much more efficiently.


We regularly held coordination meetings where first we developed the architecture of the new system and then continuously refined it. With Canto, it all went off without a hitch!

What is the migration path to Canto?

We’re here to help you make the transition to Canto seamless and easy. Your migration starts with a custom consultation with our Cumulus professional services team. When you’re ready, we’ll help you migrate your assets and metadata seamlessly into your new Canto library. Finally, we’ll show you and your team around Canto, so you can feel at home in your library and hit the ground running.

Migration timeframes depend on the size of your media library and your specific customizations. A typical migration project takes 2-4 weeks.

In fact, we think you’ll be even more satisfied with Canto. For a very limited number of use cases, some workflows might work a little differently in Canto. Our DAM experts will explain any differences and help you get the most out of your new cloud solution.

Yes. We’ll help you make the migration seamlessly, so your team won’t lose access to your media library.

Canto works on a flexible pricing model. That means the exact costs will depend on your use case. You’ll get tailored cost estimates upfront as we discuss your individual transition. The flexible pricing model also means we can take the investments you’ve already made into Cumulus into consideration.

Since the introduction of Canto, we have seen more and more customers making the switch from Cumulus to Canto. That trend has rapidly accelerated over the last three years as remote work and hybrid work have transformed how teams collaborate. As companies modernize in this age of digital transformation, we know it makes sense to continue to innovate our cloud-based Canto products and put all of our focus and investment into this platform.

After September 1st 2021, we will no longer be selling additional licenses to Cumulus.

To move a base Cumulus instance to a Canto instance will be free of charge. There may be a services engagement fee if you have complex integrations that need to be rebuilt. Your account executive will be able to help you make that assessment.

Migrating to Canto is a great time to take stock of your digital asset inventory! This could be just the right time to bring in additional libraries of content, or introduce Canto to another team. We’ll do the base migration for free, and our consultants can give you an idea of what it would cost to bring in additional assets or add more licenses.

Making this transition as simple as possible for our customers is important to us. As part of the migration, we’ll include some training time to make sure your users know how to use Canto. We’ll also provide some training documentation and online modules to make it easier for your teams to make the switch. That said, we think you’ll find that the user interface, navigation, and overall user experience is simple and intuitive. In fact, we get that compliment about Canto all the time!

We’ve built a lot of great features (largely driven by customer requests and input) and our product gets better and better with each release. Come check us out again and see all the innovative new capabilities we’ve brought to our customers! We’d love to show you what we’ve done.

You can keep using Cumulus unsupported for as long as you like. That said, we’d love the chance to show you how great Canto is and welcome you into a Canto community of 3,000 customers and growing!
