Overview

In recent years, customer demand for storage capacity to support long-term media assets has grown significantly. With increase in image resolution and development of 4K and other high-resolution media assets driving data growth, Media companies require a highly efficient and cost effective scalable platform to keep up with data growth.

The key requirements to support environments that represent the majority of media content include modular and flexible scalability, high data resiliency, immediate access and availability, and capacity optimization to reduce footprint and overall costs.
