Application

Digital Content Application for AVOD

Mission:
Audio Video on Demand (AVOD) systems allows users to access the video or audio content on demand.

Requirement:
A high availability storage solution with large capacity
, high performance, and controller redundancy.

SAS RAID System / SS-8802R
