News Production Storage Solution


Based on the deep understanding of TV news production and years of accumulated experience in the ICT field, Huawei has launched the safe, efficient, and widely compatible News Production Storage Solution that integrates industry-leading redundancy designs, port technologies, and cache algorithms. This solution provides customers with compelling user experience in high-reliability and high-performance storage and easy management at a reduced TCO.

High-Reliability Storage Required by the Timeliness of News

To ensure that news is produced in a timely and accurate fashion, around-the-clock system reliability is a high priority.



High-Performance Storage Required by High Definition

Standard definition (SD) ingesting has been replaced by high definition (HD) ingesting, even for news broadcasts. As a result, the code stream has increased by 4 to 8 times. This raises data storage difficulties for traditional IT infrastructure.


Overview

Based on the deep understanding of TV news production and years of accumulated experience in the ICT field, Huawei has launched the safe, efficient, and widely compatible News Production Storage Solution that integrates industry-leading redundancy designs, port technologies, and cache algorithms. This solution provides customers with a pleasant user experience in high-reliability and high-performance storage and easy management at a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).

  • Robust reliability: The multi-node active-active clustering technology eliminates single points of failure and ensures business continuity with the multi-level data protection technology. This solution supports online upgrade and online parts replacement. Even when a disk enclosure encounters a power failure, services keep running steadily.
  • Superb performance: A single storage system provides a stable bandwidth of 6 GB/s, allowing simultaneous streams from 120 HD workstations (4 simultaneous streams each, 100 Mbit/s) or 480 SD workstations (4 simultaneous streams, 25 Mbit/s). This solution is the first in the industry to support 16 Gbit/s Fibre Channel and 12 Gbit/s SAS port technologies, addressing customers' business growth requirements in three or four years ahead.
  • Flexible scalability: Engine nodes can be expanded online to provide the maximum storage capacity of 15 PB. The system performance increases linearly with the number of engine nodes. The powerful scalability meets the requirements of various production and broadcasting systems on performance and capacity expansion.
  • Unparalleled compatibility: This solution is fully compatible with mainstream upper-layer news production applications, such as Avid Media Composer, Dayang D3 Edit, and Sobey E7.
