Cost-effectively Store Media Assets
Media archives are graves for living data as they are notoriously hard and expensive to access.
Monetize your media assets better.
ECS can monetize media assets by giving access to data that’s inaccessible from tape.

Monetizing Media and Entertainment Content ArchivesREAD THE WHITE PAPER
By comparing the architectural requirements and 3-5 year maintenance requirements for media content archives, you’ll see why disk-based object storage is a low-cost, low-maintenance alternative to tape-based libraries.
LTO Tape Replacement
Say goodbye to pre-planning and scheduling archival media requirements. Develop new workflows that leverage and monetize archival media instead of trying to avoid it.
Capacity Expansion Tier
ECS can act as a capacity expansion to natively tier cold data from primary storage. It is not only a tape library replacement, but also a “Swiss-Army Knife” utility storage for archive and media consolidation.
Like the public cloud, ECS can span multiple geographic locations with a single storage infrastructure. With enhanced data availability and resiliency, artists and developers have access to shared and highly-available media with fast data retrieval.
ECS is compatible with industry-standard object APIs such as Amazon S3, OpenStack Swift, EMC Atmos® and EMC Centera® CAS, ensuring data access from a variety of applications.
Erasure Coding Policy-Driven Geo-Protection
This built-in capability provides full protection in the event of a total site failure and continues to deliver full read and write access from any location around the globe.
Multi-site, Active-Active Architecture & Access
ECS features stores, distributes and protects data both locally and geographically. This eliminates any single point of failure and provides a seamless failover from site to site with no impact to the business, promoting collaboration without loss of performance.
