Media vendors adopt NetApp StorageGRID Webscale for data management


NetApp said leading media vendors have adopted its StorageGRID Webscale object storage through partner integration and customer implementation.

StorageGRID Webscale is a scalable, software-defined object storage solution for large media repositories, cloud DVRs, and websites and social media sites.

In the past 12 months, media vendors — Aspera, Cantemo, Dalet, OpenText (through CyanGate), Primestream, Signiant, Silvertrak, Spectra Logic, and Vidispine — have validated their Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) interface with StorageGRID Webscale.

NetApp said the partner integration provides broadcast and film studios with intelligent policy-driven data management for the entire content lifecycle. In addition, StorageGRID Webscale helps several customers store more than 50 billion media assets.

“With these new StorageGRID Webscale integrations, broadcasters, studios, and media cloud providers are able to enhance existing workflows,” says Jason Danielson, media and entertainment solutions at NetApp.

“They can take advantage of the solution’s truly global namespace, data mobility, long-term availability, and enterprise-grade security.”
