Dailymotion and growing storage needs for video distribution storage.
Dailymotion is a video-sharing technology platform. It is primarily owned by Vivendi. North American launch partners include BBC News, VICE, Bloomberg, Hearst Digital Media, and more. Dailymotion is available worldwide in 18 languages and 35 localised versions featuring local home pages and local content
How has Scality RING helped Dailymotion’s media storage?
It’s really simple: Scality RING gives Dailymotion’s engineering team confidence that they can grow their storage capacity to meet the hyperscale growth of their content and business. And with 30% annual growth, that predictability is critical to success.
The Challenge of Growing Video Storage
Dailymotion is committed to video, believing that sharing video is sharing experience and variety in life. Second in video user traffic only to YouTube, Dailymotion.com has more than 300 million users from around the world who watch 3.5 billion videos from its player each month. Those users contribute approximately 7 hours of video uploaded every minute of every day.
Whether live or on-demand, users can watch, follow and share from among every type of video content.
Low Cost Storage Solution
Dailymotion’s moved to object storage, and its initial Scality installation in 2014. Dailymotion knew that a hardware-agnostic solution would be best for them, because of the advantages that it brings in lowering TCO and simplifying growth over time.
Scality RING simplified filling future storage needs with its more straightforward architecture, ideal for a robust service. Using Scality RING directly behind the application servers, rather than using an intermediary tier of protocol servers, improved the overall architecture and reduced the total amount of hardware and storage and server maintenance.
Backups matter. Data is central to the success of business, so losing it – even losing access for hours – affects productivity and profitability. Discover how Scality offers Integrity and Speed here
