WGBH Builds a Hybrid Cloud Active Archive Around Cloudian HyperStore

White paper by Cloudian, published on 7/17/2019

The ChallengeIf you watch PBS, you?ve probably seen the WGBH logo at the end of many programs ? Their productions include Nova, Frontline, Masterpiece, Antiques Roadshow, American Experience, and the children′s series Arthur. WGBH is creating new programming all the time, using data-intensive formats like 4K video.

Fifty years of content creation results in an enormous archive, most of which was previously stored in a tape library or on external hard drives.

The station′s many production teams shared a common archive, which strained the IT team′s ability to keep pace with the growing rate of ingest. An ongoing transition to 4K and 8K media created ballooning capacity demand, while the growing rate at which media was created added to the sheer volume of material to be archived.

The DecisionIn the search for a new solution, the WGBH IT team first determined that a cloud-only archive solution would not meet their needs, largely due to workflow requirements. Downloading a large file from the cloud would consume time, in effect adding another step to the workflow. Eventually, WGBH′s research led them to object storage ? specifically, HyperStore from Cloudian.
