SUNNYVALE, CA: Owing to the growing data, CuriosityStream, a subscription video on demand (SVOD) platform announces the selection of Infortrend's EonStor DS 3060 RAID solutions to boost speed, scalability, smart space utilization and easy deployment.

Infortrend is a one stop solution for customers in need of large faculty on a lesser budget. The redundant architecture, flexible connectivity, scalability and simplistic licensing and support help customers solve problems rather easily.

SVOD requires high read-write speeds; huge capacity to support multiple editors who work simultaneously on multiple video streams, ample storage and saving the footprint of the physical space is also a major concern. After reviewing almost all video storage players and considering several factors, Infortrend's EonStor DS 3060 RAID was opted. It has a strong performance rate of 1.3M IOPS, liberal storage space and high density of around 60 drives in a 4U.

Some of the advanced features of the solution are: loaded data services; simple upgradable host interface module; enhanced system maintenance; high performance and scalability; high density rackmount design and multiple management tools.

Another benefit of the selection is easy integration and deployment. CuriosityStream Server Manager Ray German says, "Since we were able to integrate the solution ourselves with the Apple Xsan system, I can conservatively say we easily saved $50,000 to $100,000 dollars. With one device, we were able to quadruple our storage and performance.”
