Meeting the Storage Demands of High-Volume Transcoding

Jeff Greenwald, BlueArc, Senior Solutions Manager, and Darren Gallipeau, Digital Rapids, Product Manager
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.

  • Milliseconds can mean millions of dollars made or lost but if you have to pay millions of dollars for it in the first place, is it really worth it? Loading up servers with flash or buying the most expensive storage systems on the planet have been the only way to achieve the lowest possible latency for virtualized SQL apps that require HA. Join George Wagner, Sr. Product Marketing Manager from NexGen Storage to discuss how new value-driven data management capabilities can deliver extreme low latency to the data that needs it without breaking the bank.
  • As a business, concerns over RTO, RPO, costs, security, and data privacy have historically made the decision for cloud backup a complicated one. However, cloud technologies continue to evolve, and can now provide substantial cost benefits while overcoming the most stringent security, data privacy, storage and performance hurdles. This makes it a perfect fit for many backup needs — especially remote office server backup.

    In this session we’ll cover:

    * The state of the cloud and the latest advancements for D2C server backup
    * How security and data storage advancements are addressing key enterprise data privacy concerns
    * How to leverage the cloud for remote office server backup and archiving, while significantly lowering storage and administration expenses

  • Achieving cost-effective disaster recovery (DR) services without a physical DR site — or having to extend your DR footprint — is possible. In this live webcast with Microsoft, see how you can use AppAssure software in combination with Microsoft® Azure® and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) from Dell partner, eFolder.

    The first half of the webcast will showcase how you can store AppAssure backup archives directly on Azure and perform item-level recovery from the archive without having to download the archive from the cloud. Then we’ll showcase ways to replicate AppAssure backup images to the eFolder® Storage Cloud® and enable multiple disaster recovery options.

    Join our webcast partnered with Microsoft® and see how easy it is to:
    • Manage the growth of your backup archives
    • Establish cost-effective disaster recovery without a DR site
    • Avoid extending your DR footprint

    What you will learn:
    • How to leverage Azure to directly store AppAssure backup archives
    • How to perform item-level recovery from the archive without downloading the archive from the cloud
    • How to replicate AppAssure backup images to the eFolder Storage Cloud
    • How to enable multiple disaster recovery options, including image download, overnight drive shipment or recovery in the eFolder® Continuity Cloud®
  • Do you still rely on disk backups in your data center, with additional facilities on tape? Take controle of your datacenter! Experience the magic of carefree cloud backup & DR in this video tutorial. www.vspex.proact.nl
  • From mass transit WiFi, service fleet database access, or real-time connectivity for emergency services, innovation in in-vehicle networks are rapidly changing the way we live and do business.
