  • Denver Broncos score with NetApp filers for primary storage

    Read this little article, Appears the Broncos are upgrading their data storage to 220 TB. It appears they aren't just upgrading the stadium screen. Not sure if anyone really cares though haha.

    "We're a small shop and almost everything we do is being digitized -- whether it's a server becoming virtualized, entertainment video for the scoreboard, player video or pictures. We have a lot of pictures from the history of the franchise, [and] they're all getting digitized," said Russ Trainor, vice president of IT for the Broncos. "So from a storage standpoint, it's really exploded for us."

    Awesome! This is the kind of stuff I care about :thumb: (Though the site set off my Avast, but seemed alright)

    Good read. I wish I could drop 20 grand or so on redundant storage.

      Interesting, my Trend didn't get set off. Was under the impression Avast didn't work on Vista, W7, or W8.
      I purchased 8 1 TB HDD drives when they were 39.99 each on Newegg a couple years ago. I run them in Raid 10 nothing like what these are though! Love the Virtualization of our organization, love that we are up to date and not dragging on the tech.

          You can get redundancy with 3TB (6TB raid) for around $400 with an all-in-one appliance. Hell if you have an old PC lying around you're not using you can build a headless Linux server for around $300.

            I assume they mean disk-less (NVRAM) data storage like video servers use for the scoreboard and any high availability streamers, and likely hard disk storage for archiving, in a true RAID fully meshed array.
            Game time or "live" streaming could easily take 10 TB. That can then be stored on Hard arrays or discarded as desired. That option alone is pretty pricey depending on vendor (top end brands like Verivue).

            It is easy to do when you have both money and smarts.

                  I had to re-read, because I thought I had accidentally landed in a foreign site.......and you just never what excitement can come from that!!!
