StoreAge Networking Technologies, an innovator in enterprise SAN storage management, has announced today its large-scale SVM(TM) (Storage Virtualization Manager) deployment at Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS See Small Business Server. ), Korea's largest broadcasting company.
SBS chose StoreAge's SVM to manage the storage of its two major channels - the sports channel and the drama channel. The SVM was selected for improving the manageability of SBS' large-scale storage systems as well as enhancing system performance and availability. The deployment at SBS is effected in cooperation with Netclips Inc., StoreAge's partner in Korea.
StoreAge's SVM provides SBS a cost-effective way to aggregate both the capacity and the performance of multiple storage arrays. This enables the economical creation of large storage pools with high data bandwidth from a number of mid-range RAID sub-systems, for the servicing of multiple video streams in real time. The SVM offers a uniform and centralized management view of all SAN components, which are supplied by different manufacturers. Each SBS broadcasting channel deploys a fully redundant configuration consisting of multiple servers running W2000 OS using QLogic (NASDAQ NASDAQ

Netclips supplies the required SAN components and supports SBS with the planning, design and system integration for this project. Mr. Hee-Young Kim, President of Netclips, noted: "StoreAge's technology allows us to deliver cost-effective, top-quality services to our broadcasting customers. SVM is the only solution that meets the demanding video streaming performance requirements. Its Asymmetric architecture enables practically unlimited scalability and ensures consistent high performance, using multi-vendor storage systems, at a very low-cost for the customer."
Mr.Tae Yong Ha, Deputy Chief Engineer of the SBS Institute of Technology, commented: "We were surprised at how easily this installation was completed and are very pleased with the system's performance. We know that without the SVM we would have needed to spend significantly more money in order to achieve similar results."
"We are happy that SBS chose to deploy our SVM for two of its major TV channels", said Dani Naor, Director of Business Development at StoreAge. "We've already had successful installations in the video broadcasting market, and this is yet another proof that our technology enables high-performance yet cost-effective storage management in a heterogeneous SAN environment. We believe the SVM is quickly becoming the broadcasting industry de-facto standard for storage management."
StoreAge will demonstrate the SVM and its application in digital media broadcasting at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 8-11, at Stand number S6638.
