Nexenta and Daystrom Technologies Create Unrivaled Media Storage Solution for'The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint'

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 07 January 2014 Release date- 06012014 - SANTA CLARA, California - Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage) solutions, today announced that Daystrom Technologies has turned to the NexentaStor (#nexentastor) Software Defined Storage platform to complete the production archiving support of 'The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint,' recently funded on Kickstarter.

The famed director recently raised over $1.4 million in funding from 6,421 backers. With the upcoming demanding shooting schedule and relatively short time span (18 days), the challenge was to securely archive all original video and audio files based-on multiple formats with several copies kept on-set during the shooting.

With as much as 2.8TB of raw video shot each day, disk capacity needed to be added to Daystrom's NexentaStor-based data store as shooting progressed. Nexenta's NexentaStor had been chosen to deploy a Network Attached Storage (NAS) because of its ability to easily and inexpensively add capacity when needed. In addition, NexentaStor plus LTO backups which utilized the Linear Tape File System (LTFS) delivered as close to a bulletproof media management system as Daystrom could get.

'Daystrom turned to Nexenta to provide a secure self-healing storage file and backup system immune from silent data corruption and simplified disk management though either a command line or graphical user interface which are standard features of the NexentaStor SAN/NAS storage operating system,' according to Stephen B. Cohen, Daystrom's Sr. Solutions Architect. 'Nexenta provided a validated copy on write and checksum ensuring the highest levels of reliability and data integrity in both archiving and playback.' 'The need for multiple data backups in the media and entertainment industry continues to grow as archival technology requirements behind movie-making becomes more stringent,' said Tarkan Maner, Nexenta CEO. 'Our technology helps this industry prevent potentially devastating losses from silent data corruption and preserves the creativity of the cast, camera crew, editors and post production team. Together, we are creating a safer storage environment for all businesses including media and entertainment.' About Nexenta Nexenta is the global inventor and leader in Software Defined Storage.
