Why: In the coming years, the media and entertainment industry will continue to aggregate vast amounts of unstructured data through the transformation of digital media content. Because the industry is moving at an unimaginably fast pace, companies cannot afford any delay in accessing content. What’s more, data archives today are becoming a profit center as content undergoes constant reuse and redistribution. Consequently, the need for limitless capacity is critical. In light of the influx of high-resolution files, tapes, and complex visuals, storage solutions must increasingly deliver a broad range of capabilities in order to ensure that creative industry assets are securely stored and accessible.
