Rockville, MD (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
FileTek announced today that Network Products Guide, industry's leading technology research and advisory guide, has named StorHouse® for Media and Entertainment a finalist for the 7th Annual 2012 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards in the Storage Solutions, Infrastructure, and Virtualization categories. These industry and peer awards from Network Products Guide are the world’s premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry. Winners will be honored in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 during the 7th annual dinner and presentations.
StorHouse for Media and Entertainment is large-scale storage virtualization and data management software specifically designed to store, access, back up, and protect very large volumes of new digital content and converted analog content generated by highly scalable and dynamic digital applications. The product combines industry-leading traditional and alternative storage devices/open system processors with storage management, relational database management, and file system interface software components. No APIs or modifications to existing applications are required.
To users and applications, StorHouse resembles a large J:/ drive accessible just like any other network drive or mount point. Because StorHouse abstracts hardware, users see a single unified global namespace rather than specific devices types. SSD, JBOD, RAID, MAID, and tape all look like one unlimited storage pool.
As a full-service production solution, StorHouse for Media and Entertainment provides unmatched data assurance and access at the lowest possible storage cost. Customers use it daily to overcome pre- and post-production challenges such as rapid video ingest/retrieval; high-performance content sharing by diverse transcoders/editors; and export/backup/long-term preservation of raw, edited, and master digital content.
An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual Hot Companies and Best Products recognition program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.
“It’s an honor that Network Products Guide named FileTek a finalist for the second consecutive year for this esteemed industry and peer award,” said Gary Szukalski, President of FileTek. “Being a finalist further validates our position as a company poised to successfully help the media and entertainment industry overcome the challenges associated with storing, accessing, backing up, and protecting the ever increasing volume of digital content required for essential business processes.”
