If your team is shooting and editing 4K, HDR and even 8K content, you know your storage has to keep up. Flash-based storage will get the job done — but the capital investment can be enormous.

It is possible to use the fastest storage without breaking the bank, by deploying flash exactly where and how you need it most.

Join us for a free webinar where you’ll hear from John Lassiter, director of broadcast production at the University of Alabama, about smart new ways to leverage flash-based storage technology.

As mainstream adoption of 4K and high dynamic range (HDR) video continues to increase, and new applications requiring 8K formats are constantly being introduced, it’s critical to have the appropriate high-performance storage infrastructure supporting staff working with this content.

Several organizations are solving the performance challenge with flash-based storage, and as such, flash is seeing the highest growth rate of any storage media type being used today. But it is far from being the perfect solution. When compared to spinning disk arrays, flash based resources can be upwards of 5x the cost for any given capacity.

You’ll learn:
• Which applications benefit most from flash-based storage
• When is flash not the most effective solution to a problem
• How to balance your use of flash-based resources and spinning disk arrays
• New ways to increase the cost-efficiency of your investment in flash-based storage

Understanding where and when to apply this technology is critical to ensuring such an expensive resource is used in the most practical way possible. This session aims to shed light on ideal use cases that are best suited for flash, and introduce a new technology advancement that will make leveraging the power of flash-based storage more practical and cost effective.

Is your primary storage full of files you don’t need? How would you know? And what about data scattered or duplicated across multiple volumes.

In this free webinar, StudioDaily and Quantum will show you how to reclaim primary storage space through the efficient use of a tiered storage solution.

Good data management practices are easy to talk about, but hard to implement. File-naming policies may not be followed. Employees come and go and leave a trail of poorly documented files. Different groups may create their own practices.

It’s not easy to keep user practices aligned across all parts of a studio, facility or enterprise. And that means files stack up — forgotten files, redundant files, obsolete files, all of them occupying valuable primary storage space because nobody knows for sure where to find them, or whether it’s safe to delete them.

Move those files to an accessible and visible archive, and you’ll gain valuable primary storage without spending a dime.

Who says there’s no such thing as free storage?

In this webinar, we’ll discuss ways to

  • Discover duplicates, slight name changes and distributed project files across volumes
  • Recover space by safely deleting or moving unnecessary files out of primary storage
  • Ensure legal compliance of your storage systems to enable discovery and other potential issues
  • Maintain security by verifying that sensitive files are in the proper place
  • Keep the right data in the right place at the right time

It’s never too late to take control of your storage — but with new image formats like 4K, 8K, and VR making files larger than ever before, it’s never been more critical.
