DVS Whitepaper Highlights Current SAN Technology Requirements

DVS Digital Video Systems has addressed the market requirements of SAN technology.
The whitepaper “SAN in Postproduction Environment: Requirements and Solutions” is intended to be a support to anyone interested in a SAN system. In the whitepaper DVS analyzes the SAN market, examines the requirements of the postproduction business and raises questions to be asked and answered before the investment in SAN technology is made.
The whitepaper addresses the demands and wishes of DI- and postproduction business by examining past, current and future SAN technology, both critically and constructively. The requirement for a central SAN storage is something that is being checked by many people in the business. A number of important questions needs to be answered. The DVS whitepaper provides advice on all the important SAN-related topics from storage size through data rate to configurations and support.
Starting with the false assumption that the main question when considering a SAN is “How much money per byte must I pay?”, the DVS whitepaper defines which subjects are really significant. More relevant questions will be “How much storage will I need?”, “How many clients are connected to the SAN and which client needs real-time access?” and, of utmost importance, “What are the peak and sustained data rates required?”. Of course, the whitepaper examines the subjects of operating systems, reliability and support intensively, too.
Innovative data management is another topic that interests the DI- and postproduction business. The DVS whitepaper approaches the subject with the introduction of Spycer; which, thanks to high-speed copying and search functionality, and on-the-fly defragmentation processes, gives the user full control over all digital content.
Furthermore, the whitepaper introduces important definitions, configurations and clarifies the importance of such terms as NAS, Fibre Channel, metadata server and RAID controller.
Examples of real applications illustrate where and how a SAN can be used within the postproduction workflow and how, with the right planning, a SAN can be integrated smoothly into the existing environment.
A compact glossary gives insight into the complex terms used in HD- and postproduction business and gives the reader valuable help with solid explanations.
The whitepaper is available to dowload at www.dvs.de
