Powering a feature-rich, always-on cloud PVR service

Broadpeak and Scality have partnered to architect a solution that offers the performance demanded by consumers —  plus the low cost, scalability and resiliency that TV service providers require to maintain 24x7 service.

Scality provides cost-effective, infinitely scalable, geographically distributed storage ideally suited to the demands of media and video content — a perfect complement to Broadpeak’s portfolio of solutions and technologies, which power the delivery of movies, television programming and other video content over managed networks and the internet for viewing on any type of device.

Benefits

LOWER COSTS

Scality RING lowers TCO through storage usage efficiency, standard x86 server support and simple management — and it grows with production, resolution and your catalog, offering unlimited, linear scalability.

SAFER DATA

Scality enables 100% availability and up to 14 nines durability, with multi-site options to tolerate entire site failure. Upgrade, expand and maintain access, even during unexpected outages — it’s good for business.

FAST STREAMING

Scality provides high throughput for streaming HD content to many simultaneous users in many formats through multiple CDNs, including public cloud providers. Plus, Scality RING runs on standard x86 hardware and has been pre-integrated with a rich selection of enterprise storage hardware.

FLEXIBILITY

Broadpeak’s cloud PVR solution enables the implementation of cloud DVR services in a shared copy, private copy or hybrid mode. For private copy-based deployments, Scality additionally supports a number of storage optimizations, such as low-profile storage, file-based deduplication and storage tiering.

SIMPLICITY

It’s easier than you think! The Broadpeak cloud PVR solution is pre-integrated with the major content management systems and supports delivery to legacy STBs and OTT devices. Equally, the Scality RING solution is pre-integrated and tuned for the Broadpeak cloud DVR workload.

    The solution

    Flexible and modular, Broadpeak’s cloud PVR solution is built around a high-performance recorder (with built-in caching). A recording manager oversees the copy policy and scheduling of recordings.

    Storage costs are optimized by using on-the-fly packaging and leveraging Scality’s RING storage.
