SUNNYVALE, California, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- CuriosityStream, a subscription video on demand (SVOD) platform that provides ad-free, factual television content on demand via apps and streaming devices, has been experiencing rapid data growth and has therefore chosen Infortrend's EonStor DS 3060 RAID solutions as the best way to enhance its high speed, scalability, smart space utilization and easy deployment.
Being an SVOD business, CuriosityStream required high read-write speeds and huge capacity to support multiple editors who work simultaneously on multiple video streams. Apart from requiring ample storage, saving the footprint of the physical space was also a major concern. After reviewing almost all video storage players and considering the abovementioned factors, the strong performance (1.3M IOPS), ample storage and high density (60 drives in a 4U chassis) of the EonStor DS 3060 was the best solution for CuriosityStream's needs. This solution also utilized ATTO Technology's Desklink Thunderbolt™ enabled 2162 and 2082, enabling editors to utilize the high-performance storage directly, in a shared workflow.
Another benefit CuriosityStream found with the EonStor DS 3060 was easy integration and deployment. CuriosityStream Server Manager Ray German said: "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."
German adds: "I am extremely happy with Infortrend's EonStor DS 3060 and the support the Infortrend team provided during its implementation. With one device, we were able to quadruple our storage and performance. All I can say is 'Thank you Infortrend, great product!'"
"The combination of Infortrend's EonStor DS and ATTO's Thunderbolt™ Desklink Devices, provides an ideal solution for this editing environment. As workflows embrace 4K and ultimately 8K resolutions, customers will require this new level of solution performance," said Wayne Arvidson, VP of Sales & Marketing at ATTO Technology.
"Infortrend offers a rock solid solution for customers who need large capacity on a tight budget. Their fully redundant architecture, flexible connectivity, scalability and simplistic licensing and support help customers solve problems where other solutions simply can't compete. This was the case for CuriosityStream's German. He was faced with the challenge of finding a cost effective solution to support editing multiple 4K video streams. Infortrend came to the rescue. The solution met his budgetary requirements while exceeding performance expectations and he couldn't be happier," said Michael Ellison, Vice President of Sales at Virtual Graffiti, an authorized reseller partner of Infortrend.
