Qumulo Aims To Accelerate Media-Production Workflows
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Qumulo as a premier sponsor. Headquartered in Seattle, Qumulo fundamentally changes the way enterprises store and manage enormous numbers of digital assets. Through data-aware scale-out storage software, the company enables customers to answer critical questions about their data footprint in real time and at immense scale.
Qumulo Core is a software-only solution designed to leverage the price/performance of commodity hardware coupled with the modern technologies of flash, virtualization, and cloud.
“Sports companies are constantly looking for ways to increase the business value of their media assets by merging creative talent with technological breakthroughs,” says Brett Goodwin, VP, marketing, Qumulo. “Storage infrastructure plays a critical role in the ability of sports organizations to store, manage, and curate vast and rapidly growing libraries of media content. Data-aware scale-out NAS is flexible to adapt to sports organizations’ business growth and takes advantage of new revenue opportunities, while providing uncompromising protection and availability to ensure business continuity.
“With data-aware scale-out NAS,” he continues, “Qumulo’s goal is to help sports companies accelerate their media-production workflows and easily and cost-effectively manage millions or billions of digital assets.”
Qumulo’s customers include Ant Farm, Blind Studios, Densho, FotoKem, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, Sinclair Oil, Sportvision, TELUS Studios, UConn Health, University of Utah Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute, and ZOIC Studios.
Sportvision, the media company behind the iconic 1st-and-Ten yellow line in football broadcasts, recently turned to Qumulo’s data-aware scale-out NAS solution to gain visibility into data use and performance. Sportvision delivers cutting-edge broadcast graphics, visual effects, and statistical data to professional sports leagues, networks, marketers, and fans. Like many companies, it eventually encountered challenges related to its storage capacity and data management at scale. Implementing Qumulo Core enables it to analyze storage capacity and performance, determine what projects or directories are growing the fastest, assess which users or applications are consuming the most resources, and much more.
