Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR) , a global leader in unified content delivery, video analytics, and real-time Linux solutions, today announced the release of a new software-defined object storage solution as part of its UPTM suite of multi-screen video solutions. Designed to support cloud DVR and other IP video applications, the company’s newest storage solution is a high performance, resilient, and easy-to-manage platform that can scale to meet service providers’ rapidly growing content storage requirements.

Concurrent’s distributed object storage solution is an ideal choice for service providers interested in launching new IP video applications such as network-based digital video recording (DVR) or personal video lockers that require a large amount of storage capacity. With modular scaling, flexible storage options, on-the-fly capacity upgrades, and self-healing capabilities, Concurrent’s object storage offers the features service providers need to launch applications requiring petabyte and exabyte storage levels.

“Concurrent’s object storage solution enables our customers to capitalize on the benefits of doing business in the cloud, which include better cost efficiency, improved flexibility, and simplified scaling,” said James Brickmeier, SVP of Strategic Marketing at Concurrent. “Unlike general purpose storage options, our object store is optimized for capacity hungry, massively parallel, bandwidth intensive, multi-screen video applications like cloud DVR. With the economics of network-based storage becoming more attractive than set-top DVRs, we expect more and more customers to look to cloud technologies as they add storage capacity.”

Concurrent’s new object storage solution supports industry standard open interfaces such as OpenStack(R) Swift, Amazon S3TM, NFS, and CIFS. It is fully integrated with Concurrent’s UpShiftTM Unified Content Delivery Solution and supports a wide range of applications, including storage for video-on-demand, catch-up TV, and cloud DVR services. The software offers dynamic data replication, balancing of content across storage nodes, automatic data recovery, geo-redundancy, and auto-tiering of content within storage classes based on popularity. While optimized for video, customers can also maintain non-video content and unstructured data within the same software-defined storage infrastructure.

Concurrent’s object storage solution is currently available and shipping to customers.
