Digital Storage

Media Sphere works on a two tier system. 

Tier 1: Tier 1 is a spinning discs service which enables fast access to files. Tier 1 storage allows clients access to viewing proxies of their content, usually H264Mpeg4. This storage level also stores all relevant files which are currently being worked on. data-center

Tier 2: Tier 2 is LTO robot storage. Here we hold files that aren’t needed for immediate processing but files required to be near line. Recovery time of these files can be up to 30 mins.
