New Approach To Cloud DVR Storage

Anevia has previewed its Embedded Distributed Storage (EDS) solution that it says reduces infrastructure, complexity and cost of storing videos online particularly for services like CatchUp TV, replay and Start Over.

“Among all of the services currently available, Cloud DVR is a particular favourite amongst the public,” says Damien Lucas, co-founder and CTO of Anevia. “By allowing users to record all of their programs in the Cloud, they have access to multiscreen recording and playback without the limitation of a set-top-box’s storage capacity. 
 
“A service that operators are expected to offer despite already having to face the question: what impact does the exponential growth of recordings have on the complexity of the supporting infrastructure and on the associated costs? Since television channels never stop, should they not also be recorded nonstop?”

He says that the massive increase in recorded content that is never deleted is a reality that the “pure players” in data storage have not yet addressed.

But Anevia has with its Embedded Distributed Storage solution.

“EDS is the exact answer to these new needs and behaviors with regards to TV recording,” he says. “The solution divides the infrastructure needs by half and reduces complexity. It also consequently reduces the environmental footprint.”
 
Instead of being located on dedicated storage servers, assets are distributed across the embedded storage available on each streaming server, the firm explains. A single video only needs to be recorded once for all and watched by millions.

“With its scalable architecture, essential interface for video streaming and cost-saving infrastructure, Anevia’s EDS technology lifts the last barriers to the development of Cloud DVR.”
