Future Proof Capture: Best Practices for Planning Your Server and Storage Strategy


Please register to access Future Proof Capture: Best Practices for Planning Your Server and Storage Strategy

In the last 12 months, the number of Mediasite-equipped rooms, hours of operation and webcast viewership have exploded. Large and small universities, corporations and government agencies are capturing, distributing - and having to manage - more online presentation content than ever before, often beyond what they ever imagined. 

But as demand for capture increases and IT and AV environments become increasingly complex, what are the options and best practices for deploying appliance-based webcasting platforms? And how do you ensure optimal integration and reliability? 

Join us for a candid exploration of three highly successful, real-life Mediasite application, database, video and storage architecture scenarios that are in current production. 

We'll also compare key planning decisions as success variables in a case study analysis of these environments, including: 

  • Size and manner of storage 
  • Availability and concurrent viewership strategies
  • Network provisioning 
  • Server hardware selection 
  • and virtualization
