Deploy all-flash infrastructure for all your active data sets. VAST's new advancements in commodity flash management, data protection and reduction deliver a lower TCO than hybrid storage alternatives.
The Platform For Real-Time Content
Capture, create, stream & analyze at the speed of flash. Outshine the competition and improve time-to-market. Universal Storage is the first all-flash architecture that delivers cutting edge performance for the most demanding production workflows at unmatched scale.
Liberate and monetize the full potential of your content. Get the high-throughput and low latency required for the most demanding workflows. Universal Storage delivers all-flash with the scale and simplicity of an enterprise NAS — all at the cost of an archive.
Changing viewer needs require a new approach to media workflows and archiving.
Today’s media and broadcast studios typically deploy a complex mix of storage systems with each dedicated to a small portion of workflow. Studios need streaming storage to feed high-bandwidth editorial and playout applications, transactional storage for rendering/VFX workflows, and large, low-cost storage for media archiving and VOD origin storage that traditional storage systems can’t provide. In addition, the complications of legacy NAS are on a collision course with the access demands of AI, rendering, and streaming.
VAST Data’s Universal Storage combines the consistent performance of all-flash and the economics of archive storage systems. With VAST, studios can consolidate their production and archive requirements into a single, easy-to-manage namespace that scales to exabytes and provides QoS for each aspect of the workflow — all while supporting hundreds of high-res video streams or high-scale rendering requirements.
VAST’s solution has allowed us to provide consistently-predictable broadcast performance and is delivering additional savings in the form of data reduction by efficient deduplication on our video assets.
One Single Solution for All Your Pipelines with Universal Storage
VAST Data breaks the decades-old tradeoff between storage performance and capacity with a new storage architecture that enables unlimited processing on affordable flash, at up to exabyte scale. VAST’s DASE architecture allows studios to scale performance and capacity independently. This breakthrough storage platform allows media and broadcast organizations to deploy a single system for everything including special effects rendering, seamless internet streaming, to archiving their most valuable media assets.
