Data Center Technologies for Video Production

The entertainment that the audience enjoys today is the result of the progress. Today video imposes higher demands on the IT infrastructure. New solutions and equipment that transform data centers allow you to create video content faster and cheaper.

Ethernet Storage Systems

Today, Ethernet factories for storage significantly exceed Fiber Channel in terms of high speed and low cost are becoming more widespread in M ​​& E (media and entertainment) companies. Companies that are using 25GbE, not to mention 50GbE or 100GbE, can get effectiveness that distinguish Ethernet from other types of networks.

High Performance File Systems

As in many other industries where IT departments have to handle either very large files or huge sets of small ones, in the M & E industry, workflows are built on the basis of horizontally scalable file systems that provide quick access. One of the storage options is the latest solutions, including NVMe SSD and file systems, which provide scalability, high performance and low latency.

Multiple protocols support

Given the many legacy applications, M & E often solves the storage problem by creating a multi-tiered storage infrastructure and using hybrid cloud. To integrate such infrastructure with storage systems, the main requirement was the support of multiple protocols. The data is transferred from POSIX systems to cloud infrastructure. This allows you to store all footage video according to industry standards. You do not need to transfer them back.

Software-defined infrastructure

New formats of films and video every few years, by orders of magnitude increase the requirements for the speed of computing and network bandwidth. M & E companies have to meet these requirements in order to be able to use owned content as long as it will be useful. In other words studios have to buy new equipment. Using a software-defined infrastructure, they can bring servers, networks and non-volatile memory in line with growing demands without replacement
