Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets is a crucial part of delivering high-quality digital marketing experiences that contribute to the achievement of business goals through increasing your content velocity. If you work with a large number of assets within AEM Assets or regularly/periodically upload numerous assets, including videos and dynamic media, optimizing your digital asset management experience is critical for system efficiency.

Depending upon how you have positioned AEM Assets for your organization and the features that you use around asset ingestion, rendition generation, and metadata extraction, identifying and adhering to best practices in different areas greatly enhances system stability and performance under load.

After reviewing the following guides, you will have the knowledge and tools to build and manage an enterprise asset management system that meets your needs:

  • The Assets Performance Tuning guide: This guide includes a set of best practices that can be followed at any point in your implementation, even after you go live, to ensure that you get the most out of your system.
  • The Assets Sizing guide: When drawing up estimates for an Assets implementation, it is important to ensure that there are sufficient resources available in terms of asset storage, CPU, memory, IO and network throughput. Sizing many of these items require understanding how many assets are being loaded into the system. This guide includes best practices that help determine efficient metrics for estimating the infrastructure and resources required for deploying AEM Assets as well as a sizing tool.
  • The Assets Migration guide:  If you want to migrate assets from your legacy system to AEM Assets, there are several steps to consider to streamline the migration process. The Migration guide include best practices around the tasks you perform to bring the assets into AEM in a phase-wise manner. This includes applying metadata, generating renditions, and activating the assets to publish instances.
  • The Assets Network Considerations document: When handling Assets Experience Manager (AEM) instances, understanding the network topology is important to understand network performance, identify chokepoints, and describe the expected user experience. The Assets Network Considerations document discusses network considerations when designing your AEM Asset deployment.
  • The Assets Monitoring guide: After your AEM instance is deployed, you should monitor certain tasks and the system in general to ensure system integrity and efficiency of operations. The Monitoring guide includes best practices for monitoring various aspects of your system.
  • The Assets Offloading guide: Handling large files and running workflows in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets can consume considerable CPU, memory, and I/O resources. Offloading these tasks can reduce CPU, memory, and IO overheads. The Assets offloading guide includes recommended use cases and best practices for Assets offloading.
