Exploring Workflow, Storage & Archive in M&E - Collaborating, Sharing and Presenting Media … Smarter
More than a few experts labeled 2014 as the “year of the breach”, and a list of all the companies that experienced security issues last year would be an entire article itself. Massive organizations are the ones that get the headlines when they experience a security issue, but companies that are infinitely smaller are just as vulnerable to breaches, if not moreso.
With the relaunch of ProVideo Coalition this year, we rolled DAM Coalition into a channel on PVC that focuses on workflow, storage and archive in media and entertainment.

Similarly, having a storage capacity of 30TB might be more than some content creators need, while others are getting into exabyte levels and finding that’s still not enough.

The solution to this problem was the multiple mirror...
