Fabrix Systems Introduces Infinite Archiving for Cloud-Based DVRs with Release of Version 3.3 of Its Store and Compute Software
PRINCETON, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
Systems, a leader in enterprise class integrated storage and
computing platforms, today released version 3.3 of its software platform
with several new application program interfaces (APIs) for service
providers who can now access greater ingest and DRM format support, as
well as Infinite (News - Alert) Archive, an industry benchmark network DVR (nDVR)
The Infinite Archive feature enables service providers to allow their
customers to record multiple channels simultaneously and store the
recorded content forever. By capitalizing on the scale-out nature of the
Fabrix storage and compute platform, storage capacity can seamlessly and
affordably grow at the same rate as demand. Fabrix's Infinite Archive
ensures continuous operation, with no interruption of availability, to
make all channels and all programs available 24/7.
Systems' software-based, combined storage and computing
platform�provides the recording, storage and delivery infrastructure
necessary to successfully, reliably and economically power a massive
Cloud DVR service. Service providers can now cost-effectively allow
their customers to view any recorded show whenever they want it.
"We are offering service providers an infinite storage feature within
their network DVR environments and addressing the concern that a cloud
DVR service could be too costly to implement," said Itai Tomer, Vice
President, Products at Fabrix Systems. "Fabrix's software-based, storage
and compute platform already reduces server rquirements to ensure a
quicker ROI, and the features in this update continue to tip the scales
in favor of developing an nDVR environment."
This release also includes greater integration with other systems. In
line with the increase of Digital Rights Management (DRM) formats,
Fabrix has added support for additional formats. Version 3.3 also
includes MP4 ingest support. The addition of a time-based API will
expand the functionality of the Fabrix platform by allowing time-based
requests in addition to the program- based requests currently offered.
This increased functionality will add greater flexibility for viewers
and provide integration with external systems. This API, like all the
Fabrix APIs, is available online.
