Melville, New York – (The Hosting News) – October 20, 2005 – Network storage solutions company, FalconStor Software, Inc. has announced that its PrimeVault facility has been selected by KyLinTV to manage the storage and hosting of its more than 15,000 hours of broadcast TV and Video on Demand (VOD) programming.
Using Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), KyLinTV brings high quality broadcast channels and hundreds of hours of VOD shows and movies to subscribers with existing home DSL or Cable broadband connections. While VOD and broadcast content from China are archived for subscriber access, KyLinTV is also adding about 1 terabyte of entertainment content per month. As a burgeoning business, KyLinTV â€™s IT needs center on storage and network availability.
Nancy Li, Chief Executive Officer of KyLinTV stated, ”Storage management and network bandwidth are our most pressing IT issues, as they are critical to the service we provide to our customers. We canâ€™t afford any latency at all, and PrimeVaultâ€™s offering of storage management and redundancy resonated with our needs.”
PrimeVault’s on-demand storage capacity provisioning – the continuous monitoring of storage consumption and availability – allows KyLinTV to utilize just the amount of storage needed without running out of disk space. KyLinTV’s goal is to free its IT administration staff from the burden of maintaining and servicing all of its stored video content, with PrimeVault taking over those responsibilities.
PrimeVault’s high availability network storage infrastructure is powered by FalconStor’s IPStor software. Combining the business continuity and disaster recovery functionality of IPStor software with RAID-6 storage for redundancy and reliability, PrimeVault is equipped for data protection and resiliency from both a software and hardware perspective. PrimeVault’s state-of-the-art facility includes multiple security layers, dual power grids and three 1.1 megawatt emergency generators, providing sufficient backup power to keep facilities operational at maximum load, with a smooth transition to back-up power.
KyLinTV chose to be among the first of PrimeVault’s customers based on FalconStor’s proven track record in data protection.
