Every day more and more video is being produced—newsreels documenting historic events, epic series we binge watch, marvelous movies, documentaries and mocumentaries, DIY and product demos/promotion. There is an endless amount of video content that can be viewed with just a quick click.
Industry surveys show that if a page takes more than 3 seconds to load, over 50% of users will terminate the visit. From social media to online shopping, the content we consume on the internet is becoming increasingly personalized, interactive, and dynamic. In this blog post, we are going to talk about how content delivery networks accelerate dynamic content.
A look back at Brews & Bytes (B&B) webcasts on broader topics around storage, technology and the world in which we live
This week, we continue taking a look back at our year of Brews & Bytes (B&B) webcasts with a dive into the broader topics that address storage and technology. While most of these involved bringing in experts from partner companies, we also had a couple of episodes that featured our team in casual discussions.
We’ve all heard the phrase “content is king” which originated in an essay Bill Gates wrote; but, that has never been more true than in 2020. And, without a doubt, content needs storage—lots and lots of storage.
So, it is no surprise that we are seeing the hunt for educational resources about object-based storage and data management soar.
Here are the top educational resources that have been consumed by storage professionals on the Caringo website.
Despite a global pandemic and social turmoil, there were some positive shifts in our world that were facilitated by technology. The ability to order just about anything online and to virtually meet with medical professionals, family, friends, and teachers as well as colleagues and peers, and an inexhaustible amount of content with which to entertain ourselves stood out as capabilities not possible even a decade ago. So with that in mind, let’s take a closer look at what we like to call the 3 Cs (content, cloud and collaboration) and our predictions for 2021.
The appetite for compelling live content is soaring, particularly live sports programming. Rethink TV has estimated that global sports rights will grow by up to 75 percent between 2020 and 2024, making it clear that live content remains king. This trend is particularly evident among younger audiences, with Nielsen figures showing that two-thirds of 18-34-year-olds watching linear TV preferred to watch live content. According to the Interactive Advertising Bureau, the same proportion of all consumers worldwide is now streaming online coverage of live events. This demand is, in turn, putting pressure on broadcasters and other rightsholders to adapt their workflows to meet greater and more varied needs for high-quality live content.
The Store segment of the BaM Content Chain® covers the storage of content throughout its lifecycle. This can be on-premise or cloud object storage, SAN and NAS – including disk, SSD, optical and data tape, as well as storage management, archive storage, video servers and VTRs.
With an ever-growing amount of content needing to be stored and then rapidly accessed from anywhere, with ever-higher resolutions only increasing the pressure, Store today means much more than the simple repository its name implies. We spoke to 10 IABM member companies to catch up on all the latest developments in this largely unheralded but vital content chain segment.
In 2020, all industries have undergone a sudden “stress test” due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While digital transformation is providing a way out for businesses and organizations, it is bringing the same amount of challenge.
