Seagate Exos X—Helping Viva TV Navigate their Storage Future

Viva TV, a Taiwanese shopping network, undertook a massive data storage reengineering project. One key requirement for this endeavor was to acquire a solution that could handle storing multiple film libraries and hundreds of gigabytes of new data every day.

Be Prepared for Video Data Growth

Neither the equipment provider, nor Viva TV’s maintenance services, could resolve the issue without causing business delays.

Their Solution

Anticipating the Next Stage for Storage

One key requirement for this endeavor was to acquire a data storage solution that could handle storing multiple film libraries and hundreds of gigabytes of new data every day.

Stability and Support—Courtesy of Seagate

Since Viva TV implemented the Exos X 5U84 storage system, their perceived operational stability has significantly improved. According to their engineering team, support from both Seagate and their system integrators has been very smooth, providing Viva TV with an even greater sense of stability.

“The new storage equipment purchased in this plan will not only carry the data volume of the existing film library exceeding 300TB, but also must include all new online live program (LIVE) files in the next five years.”
