Among the highlights that NEC Enterprise Solutions as total solutions provider will be showcasing are the company’s High Availability solutions for the broadcasting industry including:

•             Smart Data Storage & Management     (NEC HYDRAstor (VA) and NIAS)

•             High Availability Networking                  (NEC SDN/SDx)

•             High Availability of Applications             (NEC EXPRESSCLUSTER/NEC Fault Tolerant Server)
 

NEC’s Award Winning HYDRAstor and NIAS
NEC's award winning HYDRAstor technology is a very high performant, capacity-optimized and highly available storage solution for backup, long-term data archive and Disaster Recovery solutions. The extremely high performance and capacity of NEC HYDRAstor make it an ideal solution for the broadcast sector.  

With the importance of data management increasing due to targeted cyber-attacks, there is a strong demand for improved file server security. NEC’s Information Assessment System (NIAS) streamlines file server data and enhances security. It provides detailed visualizations of access permission settings and easy detection and amendment of settings that violate the codes or operating regulations of an organization, improving security while reducing the workload of operating administrators.

Highly Available Software Defined Networking
NEC’s OpenFlow Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology enables full network virtualization and allows enterprises, data centers and service providers to easily deploy, control, monitor and manage secure network infrastructures. By centralizing the controller and using software to program the network, SDN helps to eliminate manual processes, configuration inflexibility and latency challenges associated with device-centric networking.

As a pioneer of SDN, NEC engages proactively in R&D and trials utilizing SDNs and IoT service enablers to improve service quality for operators and reduce network operating costs. Linking IoT services with SDN enables NEC to construct service-oriented networks to cater for the most advanced environments and requirements.

High Availability Applications
Leveraging NEC's world-class supercomputer and mainframe heritage, NEC’s Express5800 Scalable Severs realize high performance, high availability and high operationability and are the ideal platform for compute-intensive and memory-hungry applications in mission critical and virtualized environments such as in broadcasting. NEC’s Fault Tolerant servers are designed with innovative technology that enables continuous availability for a solution with up to 99.999% system uptime while providing data integrity and exceptional performance. NEC’s EXPRESSCLUSTER is a software solution for high availability and remote disaster recovery preventing data loss and protecting IT systems.

Visitors to IBC 2017 will be able to experience the extreme performance, security and convenience of NEC’s fully integrated end-to-end Smart Broadcasting solutions and will be able to discuss with NEC experts the available options as to how the sector can benefit from these.
