By chhandomay on Jan 27, 2008
services company Elektrofilm Digital Studios and sister company eMedia
are able to effectively manage 750 terabytes of data it expects to
scale to 1.5 petabytes in the coming year, while lowering its total
cost of ownership, using a tiered storage and content lifecycle
management consisting of Sun StorageTek software and a variety of Sun
StorageTek systems. It also deployed a variety of Sun Fire servers
running the Solaris 10 Operating
According to Chip Aycock, COO of eMedia Systems, "Digital media management of this scale has until recently been prohibitively expensive. Additionally, the complexity of the enabling software and infrastructure has acted as a barrier to the successful commercial implementation of our vision - until now. With the help of Sun Microsystems and their comprehensive platform components, including servers, storage, software, and professional services, we've been able to focus our development efforts into realizing the Digital Media Environment (DME)."
