The DDN-Bull solutions provide reliable and scalable solutions for more than 10 Gbits/second of simultaneous video streams and records enabling streaming consolidation.
DataDirect Networks, the recognized leader in high performance large capacity storage networks, has set a world record for Video on Demand (VoD) and Network Personal Video Recorder (NPVR) streaming establishing 2,800 simultaneous streams (ie more than 10Gbits/second) from a single Silicon Storage Appliance (S2A) with Bull’s streaming application on a NovaScale Server.
“Simultaneous (or separate) streaming and recording environments require a storage architecture using high bandwidth controllers that enables controlled latency I/O. Bull’s highly reliable and scalable solutions reduce information system infrastructure complexity and can be quickly deployed and operated,” said Jean-François Le Prince-Ringuet, managing director of Bull’s international Telecommunications & Media Division. “The conjunction of Bull’s and DDN’s know-how provides a unique cost effective and reliable offering.”
“DDN S2A unique architecture was specifically designed for video streaming & recording environments reducing the complexity of large-scale VoD environments, while providing cost and operational benefits vastly superior to other approaches,” said Alex Bouzari, DataDirect Networks’ CEO and co-founder. “With this integrated solution approach on Bull’s NovaScale Server, customers can take the next quantum jump in cost effective streaming performance, scalability and reliability.”
