Digital broadcasting applications provider AllDigital has deployed HP StoreAll Storage to support future business growth, improve cloud storage performance and reduce infrastructure costs.
Implementing HP StoreAll Storage will enable AllDigital to cost-efficiently manage high-volume, high-quality objects and several files for clients via a single storage platform while ensuring around-the-clock system availability, the companies said.
AllDigital helps clients store, convert and deliver video-on-demand assets and live media feeds to computing devices through a cloud services platform.
The HP StoreAll Storage family’s scale-out capabilities will help AllDigital to manage 300% more data than with the previous storage platform while also reducing overall storage costs by approximately 30%.
AllDigital IT staff can now reduce time spent on administrative tasks by approximately half with HP StoreAll Storage.
HP added that the simplified centralised management integrated into HP Systems Insight Management streamlines maintenance and support across disparate locations.
Advanced health monitoring with HP StoreAll Storage alerts IT staff to potential problems, eliminating system downtime and workflow disruptions.
HP StoreAll Storage enables AllDigital to expand its storage system and lower infrastructure costs with the flexibility to add capacity and performance on an as-needed basis. In addition, the HP StoreAll Storage policy-based tiering will enable AllDigital to keep pace with increased demand for digital content storage.
AllDigital can now manage the risk associated with data growth via snapshot capabilities that ensure immediate access to lost or accidentally deleted data.
HP StoreAll Constant Validation software monitors the data integrity of the files on an ongoing basis so data is always available when requested, ensuring long-term integrity of AllDigital’s archived data.
AllDigital Network Services vice president Steve Smith said the company needed a storage system that could quickly store high-quality digital media files and make them accessible to its clients 24/7, and also easily adapt to changing storage requirements.
"HP StoreAll Storage provides the flexibility and performance to allow us to rapidly scale to billions of files and objects without expensive hardware upgrades and maintenance," Smith said.
