NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Storage At NAB 2015 (Booth SL13309) NetApp will showcase its latest storage innovations for the media industry including clustered scale-out NAS storage, high-capacity video production storage and the company’s next-generation object store. Based around the NetApp clustered Data ONTAP operating system, the FAS8000 Series is said to improve video bandwidth and provide ‘always-on’ operations for local broadcast news operations, advertising sales, animation and VFX rendering as well as high-speed transcoding for digital platforms. Data ONTAP can enable data mobility between private and public clouds and its disaster recovery software is said to be able to improve overall data management strategies. Also on show will be the E5600 Series of SAN Storage Systems, which are engineered for extreme video bandwidth and maximum storage capacity per rack unit, and StorageGRID Webscale (appliance or software-defined) object storage solution for managing media repositories across time and space. StorageGRID Webscale is for multipetabyte distributed content repositories. www.netapp.com At NAB (Booth N432) Reading- based Disk Archive Corporation (DAC) will present a new storage concept that is says overcomes the traditional economic barriers that have made Cloud Storage unaffordable for long form broadcast content in native resolution. Combining an on-premise appliance with a copy of Last Resort in the cloud, the system is said to offer a multi-petabyte solution for users looking for affordable storage for DPP compliant AS-11 digital workflows. “With the growing need to store more content in a more accessible way, broadcasters and media companies are looking for higher density and lower cost agile storage solutions,” said Alan Hoggarth, managing director, DAC. “Enterprises have already largely moved their transactional data from tape archives to cloud- based disk storage, but the special requirements for media storage defeat the economics of typical cloud solutions. At NAB we will present new technologies and solutions to increase storage density, reduce cost and harness the power of the cloud in a smarter way to deliver tangible business benefits and superior performance.” In Las Vegas DAC will also announce support for a new generation of Archive Specific 8TB disk drives. www.diskarchive.com Are you looking for an inexpensive, bookable, Ka band satellite uplink?
