New White Paper! Media and Entertainment Workloads using NetApp ONTAP! #NAB2019

Image result for media and entertainment

Every year, the National Association of Broadcasters puts on a show to deliver the latest and greatest in media and entertainment content and technology solutions.

This year, I decided to try to piggyback on the show and put out a new white paper about how NetApp ONTAP works with media and entertainment workloads. Included in this whitepaper:

  • DreamWorks Animation case study on NetApp ONTAP
  • Media/entertainment benchmark numbers on NetApp FlexGroup volumes
  • Why you’d want to use NetApp ONTAP

You can find the white paper here:
