Case Studies


CrossFit was experiencing explosive growth in its physical fitness and media production and distribution business and was confronted with the very real hurdles of outdated and cumbersome data storage scenarios that cause ever-growing post-production delays. To solve many of the production delay issues, CrossFit implemented an active archive solution. More>>

MLB Network
MLB Network

In 2013, MLB Network recorded over 2,500 games, with as many as five different video feeds per game. MLB Network show content was also recorded and catalogued. All of this content translated into over 6.5 petabytes of stored content. In 2014, MLB Network recorded as many as seven different video feeds per game, and exceeded 2013’s storage consumption.  More>>

As one of the leading high-performance computing (HPC) sites in the world, the NASA Ames Research Center generates approximately 1.5 PB a month of data related to research and simulations. Its existing data storage solution was nearing end of life and needed to be replaced. The center needed a solution that allowed for fast tape mount times and easy access, was cost effective, and provided a way for them to easily manage the lifecycle of the media. More>>
