Organization

A media strategist and media planning company offering data science and visionary services to clients of the mass media industry.

Industry

Mass Media, Publishing, Marketing.

Challenges

The mass media company was dealing with ever increasing data, which its old storage system was not able to handle. The industry was facing an alarming increase in the resolution of the video content. The frame per second rate in the industry was increasing from 24 fps to 48 and 60 fps. This figure is already expected to go up to 300 frames per second.

As the frames per second rate went up, so was the storage capacity needed to store these video files. The organization faced a serious shortage of storage space to store the gigantic volumes of content that was coming with higher fps rates and higher resolution.

The organization was in need of an immediate increase in their storage capacity as the business and the data was not coming slow to the organization. The company did not only require scaling out but also scaling up with the increasing demand for the storage space. There was also more processing speed and ability required to successfully and effectively handle more data.

Another challenge the organization faced was the inability to connect to the cloud effectively and seamlessly as their existing data storage solution was not compatible to industry compliant cloud vendors. They needed to store their mission critical data not only on-premises but also in the cloud, to make it redundant.

The third challenge was complexity of the data storage infrastructure, as it is a media strategist and planning company, simple management of resources was something they could not have compromised on. There were past instances where they did not have enough processing simplicity and efficiency to edit and deliver some of the projects in time and lost some business due to this inability. They required a data storage solution which could be easily managed through a centralized interface to reduce the complexity as it could result in quicker and rapid processing.

We did not want to go to different vendors for these challenges and it was great to have one solution that solved both of our major problems. “
