The RING is ideally suited for two critical aspects of modern digital video production: nearline archives for post production and long-term archives for completed productions.
When a video production project is completed, all the production and post-production data needs to be stored in a long-term archive. The Scality RING is an attractive alternative to tape for long-term archives. Leveraging your pick of standard servers at the cost and density of your choice, the Scality RING enables video companies to build long-term, self-healing archives that grow beyond petabytes without ever having to migrate data. The RING offers much lower low latency than tape to provide excellent accessibility to all your content. The combination of scalability and performance allows aggregation of workflows into a single, highly available, highly durable platform.
Nearline Archives. As a nearline archive, the Scality RING provides you with fast and economical storage for your most data-intensive post-production challenges. It’s less costly than SAN storage for post-production workloads, is much faster than tape, and offers unlimited scalability.
The RING makes transferring digital files back and forth to SAN easy and extremely fast, making it in essence a SAN staging area. The RING also frees SAN storage for only the assets for real-time editing, so you no longer have to overprovision SAN to accommodate production spikes.
Long-Term Archives. The Scality RING is a superior option to tape for storing digital assets once productions are complete. It provides faster access with much lower latency. And because it can run on commodity servers, you can grow archives beyond petabytes, economically, and without ever having to migrate data.
