Live broadcast services provider MediaHub has announced a tech deal with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).
MediaHub, which is responsible for the live broadcast of more than 400 TV channels and 90 radio stations from the likes of Sky and ABC, will utilise the HPE Apollo and Scality object storage solution to power its new Storage-as-a-Service offering aimed at the Australian broadcast market.
The tech will support MediaHub’s ArkHub data storage service. ArkHub is built on the high storage density of HPE Apollo 4510, along with Scality RING scalable object storage.
Alan Sweeney, MediaHub CEO, said: “Cloud providers do a great job of selling storage, but there can be high fees for egress. We wanted to create a new model with HPE. It was clear we had two great professional businesses working together to deliver a very robust, technologically-advanced solution. This would allow us to develop a storage solution that would meet all the data storage requirements of the industry and our clients.
“In global terms, Australia is a vibrant but small broadcast market. ArkHub enables us to expand into new markets. HPE and Scality create a very real gateway into the digital storage market and that presents an enormous growth opportunity for us.”
