One of the biggest obstacles to productivity organizations face today is in file storage. Particularly, the proper way to store digital media files. Archiving data has seemingly always presented a storage issue. The advent of big data at rest and big data in motion means you need to understand how it is used and what challenges it presents. Most importantly, you need to make sure that your organization has high performance storage architecture to accommodate large streaming files.
How Media Files Are Used
Digital media files are used in a number of different settings. There is tremendous diversity in the use of these files. Platforms on which rich media files are created and used also differ quite dramatically from one organization to the next. What is consistent is that whether it is being used for music and gaming or for business intelligence, it is the end user experience that is most important.
