CIOReview | Tuesday, July 19, 2022

Taipei, Taiwan, -  Infortrend® Technology, Inc. (TWSE: 2495), the industry-leading enterprise storage provider, announced their EonStor CS scale-out NAS has been selected by India’s top media and entertainment (M&E) solution integrator to complement their broadcast playout system with performance, data protection, and all year round operation.

With over two decades of experience in M&E solution customizations, the Indian M&E system integrator has an A-list of clients that include Netflix, Cisco, Facebook, local renowned TV stations, and with services ranging from TV broadcasting, film production, post-production, etc.

With specific broadcast playout storage needs, the integrator needed the storage solution to support 80 playout channels to couple with playout server and broadcast playout software (OASYS, Broadstream solutions). In addition, the list of requirements also included at least 1 petabyte (PB) of usuable storage, ease of storage capacity expansion for rapidly growing M&E data, at least 2GB/s sustained throughput to ensure smooth playback, and most importantly, stability and availability to satisfy 24/7 all year round operation.

Infortrend offered three 4U EonStor CS 4060 scale-out NAS storage system with node protection, each includes four SSDs to boost read/ write speeds. The three 4U NAS appliances provide 1PB of storage capacity and can further expand the performance and capacity via scale-out and scale-up.

Configured in Erasure code for node protection, it ensures business-critical availability if one of the CS NAS appliances goes down, another will take over within seconds and offer continuous services. Leveraging four SSDs as cache, the storage system can easily meet performance requirements without using a much more expensive all-flash configuration.

“In response to our India customer specializing in M&E solution integration, the EonStor CS scale-out NAS is a great choice. It offers node protection plus RAID for disk protection. When you encounter node or disk failures, EonStor CS ensures the data is protected, and best of all, provides high performance continuous operation,” said Frank Lee, Senior Director of Product Planning.
