A white paper commissioned by Avid explores the need for new intelligent storage through software defined networks

The explosion in demand for video and for increasing resolution (HD to UHD and beyond) is putting a severe strain on video workflows. Critical to these workflows is the underlying storage that enables the video creation-to-consumption value chain. A new white paper by Frost & Sullivan, commissioned by Avid, describes a new breed of software defined storage platforms, that are agile, simple, and reliable.

The white paper, entitled ;lkj, argues that the market today does not just need more storage, but more intelligent storage to alleviate the relentless pressure to deliver higher-quality content in shorter periods of time, with fewer resources and smaller budgets. The paper explores some of the key challenges media companies face today and explores how intelligent and agile media storage initiatives can overcome these challenges, while enabling video workflows to future-proof themselves from the unrelenting demands of a consumer market with an insatiable appetite for more content.
