MediaScaleX // Storage
Dell EMC PowerScale
Collaboration drives media workflows. Centralizing assets into streamlined shared storage helps media organizations drive collaboration, accelerate production and reduced costs by eliminating separate “silos” of video assets. Centralized storage can help unlock collaborative tools and processes that allow artists, systems and broadcast engineers to leverage common stored assets whether on premises or in hybrid cloud workflows. Dell EMC PowerScale builds on the legacy of Isilon to offer a consolidated, collaborative storage environment that enables concurrent, real-time collaboration with multi-protocol access, integration with key partner software and easy search across multiple storage methods.
MediaKind Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP)
For cable companies, multiple service operators (MSOs), telcos and content providers who need a cost efficient, reliable solution for massively scalable video storage and recording that exceeds stringent performance requirements, the MediaKind Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP) is the only field proven, large scale software-based solution that provides resiliency, very high throughput, and virtually hands-off maintenance. This platform is highly optimized to minimize hardware footprint and provide the best possible TCO.
Supported use cases
Cloud based DVR applications enable service providers to offer a DVR service without the need todeploy or upgrade to expensive DVR boxes at the subscriber site. By locating the storage and streaming at the network operation center and running an RS-DVR client software at the subscriber site, operators can offer a full DVR service without the need of hardware upgrades at the subscriber.
Dynamic origin server
The origin server is a scale out media storage system that can also perform content transformation, and streaming. The origin ingests MPEG-TS CBR and ABR, and transforms them on-the-fly to RTSP and different OTT formats, thus eliminating the need to store multiple formats.
VSPP tiered architecture
Supports different tiers to address specific streaming patterns as well as content popularity.
With an ongoing transformation to the full-blown Media Edge for the legacy and OTT delivery.

Add smart storage pooling to your shared storage workflows with the Tiger Pool add-on for Tiger Store. This enables you to pool multiple NTFS volumes in a non-destructive way to perform live storage expansion, decommission aging hardware without incurring downtime, and optimize the use of free space available. To users and applications, the pool looks and behaves like a normal volume while each pool volume member preserves its original folder structure. If any pool member fails, you only need to worry about restoring a fraction of your dataset while the rest of your data remains available. You can freely add and remove pool volume members of different manufacturers, LUN size and performance characteristics without ever putting data at risk.

MediaScaleX // Storage
MediaScaleX // Storage is a software-defined, object storage platform that unifies online, nearline and archive storage into a single, shared, scalable cluster. It enables Media businesses to simplify and cost-reduce storage operations.
With a single UI into an exabyte-ready environment, and the ability to simultaneously store multiple pools of data in file (NFS, SMB) and object (S3, Rados, Swift) formats, MediaScaleX // Storage is one of a kind. Critical data protection functions like erasure-coding and data scrubbing are standard features to support data integrity and long-term retention. While in-built support for NVMe, SSD and HDD technologies enables clusters to respond to multiple performance requirements. Using the open Ceph storage engine at its core, MediaScaleX // Storage is hardened, robust, flexible and above-all built for scale.
Launched in 2015 to address Multi Service Operators' requirements for cloud DVR storage, MediaScaleX // Storage was designed from the ground up to combine high intensity ingest, record and playout processes with the need for deep archiving of VOD and customer-recorded content. This same solution supports any Media business to unify islands of storage into simpler, more scalable systems. And with high-performance integration with the MediaScaleX // Origin platform, content can be streamed on demand from any part of the storage cluster.
As Broadcasters and Post-Production operations target storage simplification, more workflow agility and cloud-compatibility, object storage is becoming more important. MediaScaleX // Storage provides cloud capabilities in an on-premise platform to allow Media businesses to easily scale and manage storage as requirements evolve.
R&S SpycerNode represents the first in a new breed of storage systems that harness the latest advances in High Performance Computing (HPC), a term that refers to the system’s performance, scalability and redundancy. HPC is a combination of hardware, file system and RAID approach. HPC employs redundancy using software “RAID” technologies called erasure coding in combination with declustering to increase overall performance and reduce rebuild times. Also, system scalability is almost infinite and expansion is possible during operation.
The most compelling aspect of R&S SpycerNode is its building-block characteristics. It provides the ability to build a single global name space with different speeds of storage node.
In developing R&S SpycerNode, Rohde & Schwarz engineers have looked at many of the key issues that impact on media storage systems within high-performance video editing environments from annoying maintenance requirements – such as defraging – to much more serious system failures including dying disk drives, which can have catastrophic consequences to a project that is being worked on.
R&S SpycerNode features Rohde & Schwarz‘s device manager web application which makes it much easier to set up and use Rohde & Schwarz solutions in an integrated fashion. Device manager helps to reduce setup times and simplifies maintenance and service due to its intuitive web-based UI operated through a single client.
A critical requirement of any high-performance video storage system is proven data security. In developing R&S SpycerNode, Rohde & Schwarz has introduced data protection systems based on erasure coding and declustering. Erasure coding means that a data block is always written including parity.
Declustering is a part of the data protection approach of HPC setups (formerly known as RAID). It is software based and in comparison to a traditional RAID setup the spare disk is spread over all other disks and is not a dedicated disk. This will decrease rebuild times and reduce performance impact. Also, there are no limitations with the RAID controller, which results in much higher IOPS (Input/Output operations per second). Importantly, there is no impact on system performance over time due to declustering.
R&S SpycerNode comes in multiple 2U and 5U chassis designs, which are available with NL-SAS HDD and SAS SSDs in different capacities. An additional 2u24 chassis design is a pure flash system. There are main processor units and JBOD units. A main unit is always redundant, equipped with two appliance controllers (AP). Each AP features two 100 Gbit interfaces resulting in four 100 Gbit interfaces per main unit.
The combination of different chassis systems makes R&S SpycerNode applicable to a very broad range of applications. The 2u system represents a compact, lightweight unit that is ideal for application within mobile productions as well as offering a very dense, high speed storage device for on-premise applications. A larger 5u system offers sophisticated large-scale storage facilities on-premise within broadcast production centres and Post facilities.
