Meeting the Storage Demands of High-Volume Transcoding

Effective high-volume media transformation pipelines require an automated transcoding solution that can quickly, efficiently and concurrently transcode source content into all required output formats for supporting the vast array of viewing devices (and other applications such as deep archive) and all at the maximum possible visual quality that major media organizations demand to protect their brand image. The solution must also scale seamlessly as content volumes continue to grow, allowing additional transcoding nodes to be added without interruption to existing operations. The transcoding solution must be supported by a high-performance storage platform that is up to the task of handling many concurrent input and output operations from multiple transcoding nodes with varying data profiles—extremely large sizes for individual source files, but each resulting in multiple—even dozens—of concurrent but much smaller outputs.

Watch this 20 minute webcast to learn the significance of trancoding in Media and Entertainment workflows and the important role that high performance storage plays in transforming and distributing high quality content to reach consumers on a constantly growing range of diverse delivery platforms from Blu-ray Discs to iPads, iPhones and Internet-enabled TVs.

  • Enterprises around the world have embraced OpenStack as their cloud management platform because of its ability to simply and effectively manage shared infrastructure. To quickly realize OpenStack's benefits, rapid deployment of a production cloud that delivers mixed workload capabilities on a solid and dependable foundation is critical.

    Join this webinar to learn how agile infrastructure for OpenStack enables you to quickly stand up a dynamic self-service cloud infrastructure so you can easily take advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and efficiency of OpenStack.

    Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how Agile Infrastructure:

    - Extends the core values of cloud: scale, guaranteed performance, automation, high availability and efficiency
    - Ensures you deploy OpenStack using a process that's repeatable and error free
    - Allows you to run production and test/dev workloads on one storage platform
    - Provides higher utilization, better performance and more operational efficiency than legacy solutions

  • In 2015, the 3rd Platform will account for one third of global ICT spending and 100% of spending growth," said Frank Gens, Senior Vice President and Chief Analyst at IDC. "The industry is now entering the most critical period yet in the 3rd Platform era: the 'Innovation Stage.' Over the next several years, we expect to see an explosion of innovation and value creation on top of the 3rd Platform's foundation. This stage will be driven by a new wave of core technologies – Innovation Accelerators – that radically extend the 3rd Platform's capabilities and applications across all industries."
    In this webinar, you'll learn about the 3rd platform and it's implications for Storage systems. In particular, you'll hear about Smart Data Storage systems which provide the low cost scaling, geo-distribution and multi-tenancy which the 3rd platform requires.
  • Fully secure your network by learning how to protect against cybersecurity’s weakest link: humans. 95% of all attacks on networks were the result of “spear phishing”: attempts to steal data by masquerading as a trustworthy entity. They send an email from the “CEO” or “building manager" but once you click… it’s GAME OVER!
    We will cover:
    •How a phishing attack happens
    •Stories from real life attacks and the lessons learned from them
    •Steps you can take to protect your company
  • This webinar will discuss strategies to help you save money in the AWS Cloud. From turning systems off at night, to implementing bidding strategies on the spot market, there are many ways in which you can manage and reduce your costs with AWS.
  • Analysts project 6X more growth in cloud than traditional IT, but most of your enterprise customers run less than 1/3 of their apps in the cloud today. What’s it going to take for them to migrate the rest to your platforms? In this webinar, cloud and managed hosting experts share experiences and best practices to help drive new revenue opportunities enabled by flash storage.

    We’ll discuss:

    -Enterprise application trends and how to drive more applications to your cloud & hosting platforms

    -How to differentiate your services for competitive advantage

    -Where new profit centers may await and where other service providers are placing application and technology bets for maximum revenue growth
  • Realistic planning assumptions are an important element in a business continuity program. Why? They enable the planning team to identify the parameters they’re expecting to encounter following a disaster. They aren’t “pie-in-the-sky” wish lists but rather they’re the planner’s best guess about the conditions that will exist. Smart assumptions are usually unfavorable conditions, such as the lack of electric power or the unavailability of key people. Not-so-smart planning assumptions rely on best-case conditions that are probably not realistic.

    Lighting fast storage is an accelerator to driving great visual results. To meet aggressive production schedules, media companies are transforming virtually every stage of the content creation process, from media acquisition, encoding post-production, file delivery and archive. In order to fully realize the promise of these new file-based workflows, a highly-scalable and flexible technologies are needed to store, transform, exchange and distribute massive volumes of digital media content at global distances quickly, reliably, and securely.

    BlueArc and Aspera, Inc. develop breakthrough technologies that achieve optimal efficiency and performance which can translate into tremendous cost savings for the enterprise. In any production schedule, time is the most valuable asset – the backbone of file-based workflows is the predictability and availability of resources. To achieve both, the performance and utilization of infrastructure becomes a gating factor.

    This webinar focuses on two infrastructure aspects, storage and data access.
