Software Defined Storage Integrates With Software Defined Systems to
Meet Demanding Production Schedule
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(@Nexenta), the global leader of Software Defined Storage (SDS)
(#softwaredefinedstorage) solutions, today announced that Daystrom
Technologies has turned to the NexentaStor™ (#nexentastor) Software
Defined Storage platform to complete the production archiving support of
"The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint," recently funded on Kickstarter.
The famed director recently raised more than $1.4 million in funding
from 6,421 backers. With the upcoming demanding shooting schedule and
relatively short time span (18 days), the challenge was to securely
archive all original video and audio files based on multiple formats
with several copies kept on-set during the shooting.
With as much as 2.8TB of raw video shot each day, disk capacity needed
to be added to Daystrom's NexentaStor-based data store as shooting
progressed. Nexenta's NexentaStor had been chosen to deploy a Network
Attached Storage (NAS) because of its ability to easily and
inexpensively add capacity when needed. In addition, NexentaStor plus
LTO backups, which utilized the Linear Tape File System (LTFS),
delivered as close to a bulletproof media management system as Daystrom
"Daystrom turned to Nexenta to provide a secure self-healing storage
file and backup system immune from silent data corruption and simplified
disk management though either a command line or graphical user interface
which are standard features of the NexentaStor SAN/NAS storage operating
system," according to Stephen B. Cohen, Daystrom's Sr. Solutions
Architect. "Nexenta provided a validated copy on write and checksum
ensuring the highest levels of reliability and data integrity in both
archiving and playback."
"The need for multiple data backups in the media and entertainment
industry continues to grow as archival technology requirements behind
movie-making becomes more stringent," said Tarkan Maner, Nexenta CEO.
"Our technology helps this industry prevent potentially devastating
losses from silent data corruption and preserves the creativity of the
cast, camera crew, editors and post production team. Together, we are
creating a safer storage environment for all businesses including media
