The new solution combines Concurrent Aquari™ Storage software with the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen 9 Server and HPE Apollo 4500 Systems to deliver the flexibility, performance, and exabyte-scale required by demanding video applications and other growing visual media workloads. Leveraging the performance and density of these HPE systems, Aquari Storage provides a massively scalable and easy-to-manage storage solution to support unpredictable data growth.
Building on its rich heritage in the video content delivery market, Concurrent continues to provide value to content creators, broadcasters, cable operators and post-production houses with Aquari Storage.
