Broadcast and Television Station with QSAN Media Inline solution

The Challenge

To ensure the stability of the TV station system, the current solution focuses on backup functions, along with attributes including stability, safety, scalability, and maintainability. Lijin Broadcast and Television Station expects to achieve better availability through high bandwidth, as noted in the following statements:

1. Realize unstoppable video backup; If one controller suffers technical glitch, the other must take over the service immediately.
2. Require no additional third-party products consumption.
3. Take advantage of full bandwidth on the dual-controller architecture.

The Solution

After evaluation and comparison between products, Lijin Broadcast and Television Station chose QSAN to provide their new storage solution. Based on the existing data amount that requires backup as well as future prospects, we recommended our client XCubeNXT 8024D NAS device. 
 
Our XCubeNXT 8000D series performs well in terms of enterprise-level functions. It creates extensive ways of deployment with its safety, scalability, and decent price. For instance, supporting hypervisor makes data management smarter and more efficient. Moreover, MPIO access maximizes business’ return on investment by shortening reaction time and increasing productivity. QSAN offers high-end storage technology with high accessibility and scalability, replacing the pricy existing system with products at reasonable price.
 
Despite the lack of additional mangment server, out customer is capable of sharing a large storage space simply by adding XN8024D to the local network. XN8024D becomes accessible after the installation and simple setup of free QSAN XReplicator backup software on the existing devices. Afterwards, our cunsomter could backup data, database, or even an entire device to XN8024D, while snapshots and sync backups are also optional based on our customer’s demand.
