Atrato’s Velocity1000 selected for high-speed image storage and distribution

LAS VEGAS, USA (AVING Special Report on ‘NAB Show 2009’) — <Visual News> Atrato(, a leading provider of high-volume on-demand storage for the digital media, entertainment, Web 2.0 and high performance computing (HPC), announced that Entertainment Experience, LLC has selected the Atrato Velocity1000 for high speed image storage and distribution at NAB 2009.

The V1000 will equip Entertainment Experience’s digital cinema transcoder with compact, high performance tiered storage, using the Intel X25-E Extreme SATA Solid-State Drives (SSDs) for Tier 0 acceleration. This will enable the Entertainment Experience product to store up to 56 terabytes (or 2500 HD movies) and serve thousands of hours of concurrent HD data streams in a single 3U rack unit, producing a solution that uses up to 75% percent of the rack space and 80 percent of the power of competing products.

Effective transcoding (direct digital-to-digital conversion of one format to another) can be critical for maximizing the production and delivery of high definition video content. Atrato’s new V1000, which was announced earlier this month, offers a tiered storage architecture that combines the raw performance, storage density and power efficiency of SSDs with the capacity and low cost of HDDs. Atrato’s intelligent platform, powered by ApplicationSmart software, is ideal for the high throughput and data intensive environments that are typical for Entertainment Experience customers. It accelerates data for high access content and scales from terabytes to petabytes of storage.
