NVMe: Driving Changes in the Traditional M&E Storage Hierarchy

For those in the media and entertainment industry tasked to work with and produce content at such high fidelity, it is increasingly apparent that new technologies must be leveraged to support these workflows. One such example is increasing efficiency by handling this content with advanced asset management tools – many of which now deploy AI algorithms to help users find and access media content. Another example is using advanced lossless and lossy compression technologies to reduce the size of delivered content. Finally, one of the most well-utilized and best ROI methods for dealing with these new requirements is to use the inherent capabilities of different types of modern storage media.
