National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show 2015

Scality_Apr15_0178-Edit-767x1024

Scality is about software-defined storage, running on commodity hardware and collapsing the conventional NAS and Object storage categories. Right? Need proof? Look at everything we’ve accomplished in the broadcast, media and entertainment industries over the last year, as well as the success that we had at the NAB Show this year!

Exactly a year ago, it was very clear how (not) ready Scality was, when we prepared our first trip to NAB. NAB is the #1 tradeshow of the media industry, garnering almost 2,000 exhibitors and over 100,000 attendees. We were quite beginners in the markets that NAB caters to, but we were full of hope and sensed the opportunities in the air. And now, here we are just a year later, with a large variety of customer references (Comcast, Dailymotion, eTF1, RTL Interactive, RTL II, etc. – with more to come!) and some really solid messaging and positioning.

But don’t take our word for it! See (below) all the great content we’ve produced, and the immense accomplishments we’ve had, in creating business and storage solutions to help increase the success of media and entertainment companies. And look for us in the news, in the coming months, as we announce huge customer wins and new partners in the media industry; made due to our efforts at NAB this year!

New and Bigger 2015 (aka NAB)

NAB-2015-Booth

Digital video, streaming, mobile, and on-demand are creating a flood of content, but the infrastructure has been slow to change. The media industry has had software-based products like StorNext and appliances like Isilon for over a decade, but storage silos have only grown, and collaborators are still shipping tapes and hard drives to each other. People we talked to at the show were unanimous in demanding a fresh approach. In this blog post, we outline the problems and pain points attendees expressed, and illustrate how Scality, along with our partners, can help provide solutions.

The Acceleration of On-demand Video

Remember when we only had three TV channels to watch? For today’s generation, “Live TV” itself will soon be a memory. Already, American millennials consume more than 50% of their video OnDemand. In some countries, that number is far greater. That has huge implications in media business models, and for this conversation, media technologies and infrastructures.

HP Presents Layers of Depth: Data as a Vector

During a recent CrowdChat a number of us started talking about server based storage, big data, etc., and the topic quickly developed into a forum on data and its inherent qualities. The discussion led us to realize that data actually has a number of attributes that clearly define it – similar to how a vector has both a direction and magnitude. Technologies like object storage, cloud based storage, Hadoop, and more are allowing us to learn from our data in ways we couldn’t imagine 10 years ago.
