Hello and welcome to this July 2015 Server StorageIO update newsletter. Its mid summer here in the northern hemisphere which for many means vacations or holidays.
Content Solution Platforms
Thus this months newsletter has a focus on content solution platforms including hardware and software that get defined to support various applications. Content solutions span from video (4K, HD and legacy streaming, pre-/post-production and editing), audio, imaging (photo, seismic, energy, healthcare, etc.) to security surveillance (including Intelligent Video Surveillance [ISV] as well as Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance [ISR]).

Servers Direct Content Platform
An industry and customer trend is leveraging converged platforms based on multi-socket processors with dozens of cores and threads (logical processors) to support parallel or high-concurrent threaded content based applications.
Recently I had the opportunity by Servers Direct to get some hands-on test time with one of their 2U Content Solution platforms. In addition to big fast data, other content solution applications include: content distribution network (CDN) content caching, network function virtualization (NFV), software-defined network (SDN), cloud rich unstructured big fast media data, analytics and little data (e.g. SQL and NoSQL database, key-value stores, repositories and meta-data) among others.
Read more about content solution platforms including those Intel powered platforms from Servers Direct in this Server StorageIO Industry Trends Perspective solution brief here.
