At the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference in Las Vegas, Oracle announced new cloud storage options which enable organizations with large volumes of rich media to store, manage and retrieve content.
James Cates, senior vice president of engineering, Oracle, states,
“Video storage is expected to quintuple over the next three years, driven in part by higher resolution digital formats. Currently, 24 hours of video requires upward of 86 terabytes of storage and this trend will only increase. We saw the growing need for flexible, scalable, and secure storage, which is why we integrated two of our most powerful offerings. Now, media and entertainment companies can focus on producing excellent content, working with a solution that makes storing, managing, and retrieving rich media for both on-premise and in the cloud.”
The integration of Oracle DIVA with Oracle Storage Cloud Service - Archive Storage provides users with an incremental cloud extension tier to on-premises archive solutions, like Oracle’s StorageTek SL8500 and SL3000 tape libraries. The capability to tier video content from the cloud to on-premise environments brings cloud to the entire workflow of media life cycle management and it would enable users to leverage the bulk economics of the cloud and at the same time also retain the performance as well as usability of on-premises solutions which is critical for the video. 
To further support the storage and archiving demands, Oracle has updated Oracle DIV Anet, Oracle DIV Archive and AXF Explorer, an open format for universal content transport, storage, and long-term preservation.
  • Oracle DIVAnet 2.0: With the latest release of Oracle DIVAnet, media and entertainment organizations can securely share and back up rich media assets globally by connecting up to 10 Oracle DIVArchive systems through a single global namespace. Access control by site and by application is now enabled in DIVAnet 2.0 to provide additional security for valuable video assets.
  • Oracle DIVArchive 7.4: Oracle’s top content storage management application now has incorporated Oracle Database 12c and has added support for Oracle Linux, further enhancing the benefits of running Oracle software on Oracle hardware.
  • AXF Explorer: With the release of Oracle AXF Explorer, Oracle DIVA customers gain access to the SMPTE standard open format for sharing and managing content among disparate storage systems. 
The company concluded by saying,
“Oracle DIVA solutions are powered by Oracle Database 12c and are designed to meet the unique needs of the world’s largest media companies. Today, 10 of the top 10 media companies run Oracle software, with organizations such as Major League Baseball moving more than 600 hours of live video content daily and seven petabytes of information annually using Oracle DIVArchive with Oracle’s StorageTek SL8500 modular library system and Oracle’s StorageTek T10000 tape drives.”
