Object storage is used heavily in public cloud storage solutions and especially when the data is geographically disbursed for protection and accessibility purposes.
For some time we’ve thought mainly about how file-based storage is used to contain unstructured data; i.e., those files relative to moving (video) or static (photographic) images.
No organization or individual is immune to the problems of limited storage capacity.
It’s an integral part of next-gen IP video transport
Storage systems, whether or not coupled with editing systems, MAMs or other production-related data systems within broad- cast facilities, are all headed in the direction of IP-based infrastructures.
Latency is a continual concern, impacting nearly all forms of media and communication systems.
Since storage has become a key component in nearly all media systems and workflows, one might wonder if “storage analytics”—the detailed information about individual and overall storage elements—are important to operations and management of the entire media production ecosystem.
Over the course of the past decade we’ve seen a proliferation of servers, often as commodity-based products from the usual sources, being added to facilities for nearly every system in the video production equipment room or the delivery network.
Network attached storage, or NAS, continues to expand in acceptance and in capabilities.
As broadcast equipment technologies move closer to information technology-based systems, the way in which we design, build, monitor and account for operational costs is expected to change in near lock step with the technology we’re going to be building—or already are.
