WHO: Quobyte Inc. and the SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers)


WHAT: Quobyte, Inc. CEO Bjorn Kolbeck to present at the SMPTE 2018 Annual Conference on: Implementing Hyperscale and HPC Techniques and Technologies Necessary to Modern Media and Broadcast Workflows

Broadcast, production, post-production and distribution now generate hyperscale workloads with tens to hundreds of petabytes of business-critical data and streams of several GigaBytes/second (GB/s) per client. For media companies to remain competitive, they need to apply the lessons learned by hyperscaler and HPC companies to cost-effectively and consistently provide high levels of performance with a very small team while ensuring long-term data protection. Kolbeck’s presentation will utilize customer and industry examples from hyperscaler, HPC, and Media and Entertainment (M&E)  organizations to help attendees learn how to implement a hyperscaler-like storage infrastructure that provides limitless scalable storage to all applications across a broad range of workloads; utilize commodity servers without hardware redundancy, RAID controllers or NVRAM required for the lowest cost and flexibility; and remove the challenges of deploying and managing infrastructure, enabling new methods of creating and delivering content.


WHERE: Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites, downtown Los Angeles, California


WHEN: SMPTE Conference is October 22-25.

About Quobyte
Building on a decade of research and experience with the open-source distributed file system XtreemFS and from working on Google’s infrastructure, Quobyte delivers on the promise of software defined storage for the world’s most demanding application environments including High Performance Computing (HPC), Media & Entertainment (M&E), Life Sciences, Financial Services, and Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Quobyte uniquely leverages hyperscaler parallel distributed file system technologies to unify file, block, and object storage. This allows customers to easily replace storage silos with a single, scalable storage system — significantly saving manpower, money, and time spent on storage management. Quobyte allows companies to scale storage capacity and performance linearly on commodity hardware while eliminating the need to expand administrative staff through the software’s ability to self-monitor, self-maintain, and self-heal.
