BiteSizeTV as a broadcasting company with huge amounts of video assets required a reliable storage solution that is capable of storing large amount of data. Seamless integration within Active Directory domain and access limitation to certain users and groups on a file/folder level was a must.
Today BiteSizeTV uses JMRs Bluestor server powered by euroNAS. The enterprise class BlueStor™ Networked Storage Server features 16 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA disk drive bays, four (N+1 configured) high-velocity cooling fans, dual 620W (N+1) hot-swappable power supplies, dual internal SAS Expanders, Six 1Gb/s NIC ports or optional Dual/Quad 10Gb/s and a high performance motherboard with two 8-core Intel™ XEON CPUs.
“The euronas team has been incredibly responsive any time there has been an issue with the software – even when the problems have been created by my poor configuration. They have always been able to get me up and running quickly – even in the middle of the night”
