News : University of Western Ontario Relies on StorTrends Technology
Norcross, Ga. October 7, 2014 -- StorTrends(R) announces that the University of Western Ontario has furthered its investment in the selection of StorTrends storage appliance to deliver continuous availability for videotaped lectures offered online to the Western student community. Using StorTrends hybrid rack-mount storage array, the Canadian university has optimized the storage, playback, sharing and replication of its growing library of video assets.
Recently, the university identified and responded to the desire of students and faculty to videotape lectures and make them available online to the Western community. To achieve this, it needed a new media server and a combination of increased storage capacity and performance in order to store, playback, share and replicate the video. As the University of Western Ontario’s IT team began to collect vendor quotes to meet its needs, they also wanted to consider technology that they knew would be reliable. The university had already been using two StorTrends 3200i’s in a virtual environment for nearly seven years with great success.
