Tony Chu, PresidentOften termed as the ‘Netflix for Documentaries’, CuriosityStream did take the media industry by storm. In 2015, John S. Hendricks, the founder and former chairman of Discovery Communications, which owns the Discovery Channel, launched CuriosityStream, a subscription video on demand (SVOD) platform that provides affordable and engaging features, series, and documentaries about science, history, health, human interest, and more. Ray German, the Server Manager of CuriosityStream says, “Since we were able to integrate the solution ourselves with the Apple Xsan system, we easily saved 50,000 to 100,000 dollars. With one device, we were able to quadruple our storage and performance.”
When it comes to logistics operations, can a warehouse system function without a reliable supply of data storage? “Not at all,” says Tony Chu, the President of Infortrend Corporation.
Infortrend helped ALOG Technology/Alibaba resolve 40 million daily orders during China’s ENORMOUS shopping festival. Infortrend built a private cloud service platform to be operated by ALOG which chose Infortrend’s SAN/EonStor DS 3016R using 8 SAS SSDs, 8 SAS HDDs over one million IOPS (all cache hit), with 450K IOPS and 6,500 MB/s throughput in testing environments. ALOG Technology is the core warehouse management service provider of Tmall Supermarkets under China’s Alibaba Group.
