Deluxe Media Europe: Storage system expansion16 September 2014
London-based Deluxe Media Europe has installed a Quantum StorNext storage system and StorNext AEL6000 tape archive for storing and managing over five petabytes of media content.
It’s using tiered storage managed via StorNext to write around 4TB daily, onto a Scalar AEL6000 archive. According to the company, the new deployment enables it to “prepare feature films and broadcast media for delivery as file packages to third-party broadcasters and VoD platforms.”
To handle this workflow, Deluxe Media uses DL3, its global digital MAM system, which integrates with StorNext. The details about the content and the data itself can be accessed and retrieved for any asset stored in London by any of the Deluxe Media facilities on DL3 around the world, and vice versa.
