CULVER CITY, Calif.Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — OpenDrives, a global provider of ultra-fast shared storage solutions for the media and entertainment (M&E) industry, has announced the release of an original whitepaper authored by leading storage analyst Tom Coughlin of Coughlin Associates featuring OpenDrives technology. In the piece, Coughlin details unique technical challenges associated with today’s media production workflows and how OpenDrives’ revolutionary network attached storage systems result in drastically improved efficiencies, overcoming those challenges.

The whitepaper, titled “Storage for Next Generation Workflows”, is a comprehensive deep dive into the technical needs of digital media producers, examining the trend of rapidly growing file sizes and how latency, which causes complications and other significant problems in media production, is exacerbated with larger file sizes and more data. The paper then details exactly how OpenDrives solutions greatly reduce latency, describing how its solutions go well beyond basic machine learning or MAM integrations that other storage providers are calling AI.

“For media workflows, OpenDrives’ media accelerator OmniDrive speeds up production by 10 times with predictive and adaptive technology that no other shared storage vendor delivers today,” Chad Knowles, chief executive officer of OpenDrives said. “We are grateful and proud to share the results of working with Tom in his in-depth analysis of OpenDrives solutions.”

The OpenDrives team encourages interested members of the technical press to contact to arrange a showcase of its solutions that currently power the creative workflows of some of the largest media companies in the world.
