How many times have you written a file to a directory only to find out, sometimes much later, it was corrupted, lost or improperly archived?
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.
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.
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.
The quest to achieve more magnetic storage in the same or smaller footprint continues as scientists and manufacturers strive to reach maximum technology potentials.
The growth in data is, has and continues to be a topic that influences how much and what types of storage architectures, etc., are selected and for what applications.
The future for video, IP and storage have at least one common foundation amongst them: Ethernet networking.
Solid-state devices (i.e., drives or disks)—known as SSDs—have a different set of impacts on the overall normalized IOPS equation.
A performance measurement commonly used to benchmark hard disk drives, solid state drives, and storage area networks is called Input/Output Operations Per Second, or IOPS.
On any given day, it’s safe to state that local, enterprise and cloud storage needs continue to drive the world’s total storage requirements upwards.
Broadcast central equipment rooms now include from a couple dozen to well over a hundred computers and servers similar to those used in corporate or enterprise datacenters.
