Concurrent object storage Cloud DVR

February 10, 2015

Concurrent, a global player in unified content delivery, video analytics, and real-time Linux solutions, has announced the release of a new software-defined object storage solution as part of its UP suite of multi-screen video solutions. Designed to support cloud DVR and other IP video applications, the company’s newest storage solution is a high performance, resilient, and easy-to-manage platform that can scale to meet service providers’ rapidly growing content storage requirements.

Concurrent’s distributed object storage solution is an ideal choice for service providers interested in launching new IP video applications such as network-based DVR or personal video lockers that require a large amount of storage capacity.  With modular scaling, flexible storage options, on-the-fly capacity upgrades, and self-healing capabilities, Concurrent’s object storage offers the features service providers need to launch applications requiring petabyte and exabyte storage levels.

“Concurrent’s object storage solution enables our customers to capitalize on the benefits of doing business in the cloud, which include better cost efficiency, improved flexibility, and simplified scaling,” said James Brickmeier, SVP of Strategic Marketing at Concurrent. “Unlike general purpose storage options, our object store is optimised for capacity hungry, massively parallel, bandwidth intensive, multi-screen video applications like cloud DVR.  With the economics of network-based storage becoming more attractive than set-top DVRs, we expect more and more customers to look to cloud technologies as they add storage capacity.”
