Infortrend helps Vietnamese TV station modernise media asset management and database

Infortrend Technology, an industry-leading enterprise storage provider, in cooperation with its partner, Mega Media Services Corporation, has successfully assisted Hau Giang Radio and Television Station, Vietnam’s local broadcasting station, to deploy EonStor DS series.

The solution will enable the modernisation of the company’s MAM (media asset management) and database system with benefits of high efficiency and scalability.

Facing the challenges of fast-growing data volumes as its broadcasting business grows, the Hau Giang Radio and Television Station needed to enhance system performance to handle the heavy database workload.

Infortrend provided high availability SAN storage-EonStor DS Family solution to help it build a new MAM system with higher throughput that can facilitate smooth media workflow from ingestion, transcoding, editing and archiving. In addition, Infortrend also provided an easy-to-use management tool SANWatch software to simplify data management of IT operations.

To address the growing need for storage capacity and faster network speeds, the customer selected Infortrend EonStor DS 3000/4000 series, featuring the high-bandwidth protocol with a maximum data throughput of 11,000/5,500 MB/s Read/Write performance and IOPS of 700K, to process heavy I/O workloads and boost overall productivity.

The solutions include three units of high scalability EonStor DS 4016 for the MAM system via 16Gb high-performance fibre channel. Besides MAM, two units of highly stable EonStor DS 3016, supporting multiple and random real-time inquiries/transactions from clients, were installed for the database application. As a result, the company now can access its database safeguarded by efficient and secure data protection functions and the staff can collaborate easily and concurrently on the Infortrend SAN storage solutions.

Infortrend has enabled the customer to streamline workflow management, save on time and costs, and let the staff focus on important missions to ensure maximum productivity.

“We are honoured that Vietnamese TV Station has chosen the EonStor DS SAN storage solution for optimising their MAM and database solution,” said Frank Lee, Senior Director of Product Planning.

“Exceptional SAN transmission performance, high-bandwidth protocol, high scalability and intuitive management software support – those are the reasons why they selected our enterprise storage to enhance system performance and efficiency.”
