OpenDrives and Coughlin Associates New Whitepaper Covers Special Storage Considerations for the Media and Entertainment Industry



OpenDrives, a global provider of ultra-fast shared storage solutions for the media and entertainment (M&E) industry, has announced the release of an original whitepaper authored by leading storage analyst Tom Coughlin of Coughlin Associates featuring OpenDrives technology. In the piece, Coughlin details unique technical challenges associated with today’s media production workflows and how OpenDrives’ revolutionary network attached storage systems result in drastically improved efficiencies, overcoming those challenges.

The whitepaper, titled “Storage for Next Generation Workflows”, is a comprehensive deep dive into the technical needs of digital media producers, examining the trend of rapidly growing file sizes and how latency, which causes complications and other significant problems in media production, is exacerbated with larger file sizes and more data. The paper then details exactly how OpenDrives solutions greatly reduce latency, describing how its solutions go well beyond basic machine learning or MAM integrations that other storage providers are calling AI.
