Storage Networking Is in Focus at Broadcast Confab

The digital media industry is undergoing a data management crisis, and a slew of announcements at the National Association of Broacasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas this week take aim at the major challenges.

Notable news items include a partnership between Atrato and Seagate, which plan to deploy Seagate's hard disk encryption on Atrato's V1000 hardware. The two firms will target their joint solution at video-on-demand, media streaming, and editing applications in the data-intensive broadcast market .

Atrato, which emerged from stealth last month, is touting the V1000 as a low-cost, high-performance alternative to Solid State Disks (SSDs).

Atrato and Seagate announced their first customer at NAB this week: home theater specialist MusicGiants, which is using the solution to store digital content.

On another front, IBM unveiled a set of storage optimization services at NAB.
