Of all the technologies required for today’s entertainment infrastructure, storage remains one of the most crucial. Without the ability to store data in an efficient and reliable fashion, everything breaks down.
Below we highlight some of today’s key advances in storage technology, with each providing a technical breakdown of why they could be the solution to your needs.
Quantum helps customers “power what’s next” and meet ever-increasing production challenges: more higher-resolution content, more cameras, more content reuse, and more platforms for delivery. And with its converged architecture, Quantum’s Xcellis Workflow Storage offers built-in NAS capabilities that allow content to be shared between IP and Fibre Channel SAN clients, while its tighter storage footprint allows customers to start smaller and scale smoothly and indefinitely. For even greater convergence, Xcellis can reduce cost and space requirements by running embedded applications in a hypervisor on its workflow director: media asset management, transcode, render, production automation and more.
