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.

  • Rob Sherwood, CTO of Big Switch Networks, will present an end-to-end open source technology stack for SDN R&D, spanning switch hardware, software and SDN controllers. He will touch on the Open Compute Projects' switch design, Open Network Linux, Project Indigo, Project Floodlight and others. He will also discuss how these projects fit together, their various evolutionary paths, and how this stack fits in the landscape of emerging commercial and open source SDN products.
  • Tras crear un prototipo inicial de su aplicación para una vista previa limitada ya es hora de que el equipo pase a consolidar la arquitectura haciéndola más robusta y tolerante a los fallos antes de lanzarla oficialmente al público final.

    En este capítulo se tratan conceptos de la infraestructura de AWS tales como regiones y zonas de disponibilidad; además, se explica cómo utilizar tales características para incrementar la tolerancia de la aplicación a los fallos.

  • The IT industry is currently undergoing one of the most radical disruptions in its history, as traditional data centers are being replaced with cloud computing environments. New workloads such as mobile computing, social networking, and big data analytics are driving the need for a more dynamic, agile approach to enterprise computing. It is most prevalent in the networks within and between modern data centers.

    This presentation will discuss a new approach to application-aware data networking based on open industry standards (the Open Datacenter Interoperable Network, ODIN). In particular, we focus on recent approaches to SDN and NFV which deliver real value in next generation data networks. We will also discuss case studies which demonstrate the value of emerging cloud based, software defined environments.
  • Una vez expandida con éxito la capacidad del centro de datos a Amazon Web Services para los entornos de desarrollo y prueba, el equipo de IT se enfrenta a un nuevo reto en cuanto a la capacidad, es decir, cómo almacenar la cada vez mayor cantidad de datos generados por las aplicaciones empresariales y mantener los costes a la baja. Además, también se enfrentan al reto de mantener copias de seguridad de esos datos de manera adecuada.

    Este capítulo aborda ambas cuestiones con servicios como Amazon S3 y Amazon Glacier.

  • "Technology underpins everything at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and Dell plays an integral part, providing an end-to-end solution comprising all of the laptops, desktops, servers, storage and services we need"

  • Big Data projects do not always require new storage. In fact, the best Big Data projects can leverage existing storage solutions. This presentation will look at how you can make your existing storage work for Big Data.
  • To some, open source cloud computing and storage are inclusive, yet to others they can be exclusive of each other used for separate purposes. Likewise, some open source and cloud technologies, solutions and services are marketed as business enablers, yet are there technology concerns to be considered? On the other hand, the focus can be on the technology as an enabler, yet does it address business needs and concerns or become a barrier. The key to leveraging open source and cloud technologies is realizing what to use when, where, why and how, not to mention in new ways vs. simply as a replacement for doing things how they have been done in the past.

    Key themes:
    · What is your focus and why are you interested in Open Source and Cloud solutions
    · Software Defined Marketing vs. Software Defined Management and enablement
    · Balancing costs of for fee vs. for free (time, money, staffing, on-going support)
    · How to leverage hard products (hardware, software, valueware, services) to create your soft product (services)
    · Using various tools, technologies and solutions in hybrid ways
    · What are the major open source and cloud (computing and storage) solutions, technologies and services
    · Who is doing what and how you can leverage those activities
  • Questo è il primo episodio di una serie di webinar che illustreranno le diverse modalità in cui AWS viene utilizzato dai team di sviluppo agili. Tutti gli episodi faranno riferimento a una startup impegnata nell'apertura di una nuova area di business, illustrando i vantaggi offerti dall'utilizzo di AWS. La startup puo' essere una nuova realtà o un centro di innovazione all'interno di una azienda esistente, ad esempio per seguire il lancio di un nuovo prodotto.

    In questo episodio vengono descritti i principali vantaggi di AWS per le startup e i team IT agili, soffermandosi su come il team abbia sviluppato rapidamente un prototipo funzionante utilizzando i diversi servizi offerti dalla piattaforma.
  • Openstack has been gaining momentum in the IaaS space for some time now. It is a great example of Open Source collaboration and many contributors (more than 15,000!) coming together to make new technology.

    Often, large vendors and the organisations that represent them are seen as incompatible with the Open Source model, particularly in the storage arena. Big Tin is not required.

    In this presentation Glyn Bowden will show what SNIA can offer the Open Source community, the importance of standards and where SNIA are already contributing.

  • Supercharge Video Delivery Recorded: Mar 31 2011 38 mins
    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.
