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.
Anyone with any type of high-performance storage system for a video playout server, play-to-air system or nonlinear editing solution of any scale has probably experienced this.
One of the hotter topics in the professional broadcast world is the generational transition to IP technologies for video.
Long ago, storage components were principally ranked by the individual physical capacity of the device, or in the case of JBODs (just a bunch of disks), the array.
Cybercrime has now surpassed the profitability of illegal drug trafficking.
The quest to achieve more magnetic storage in the same or smaller footprint continues as scientists and manufacturers strive to reach maximum technology potentials.
