Open-E JovianDSS’ Data Storage Solutions for Media & Entertainment

Enjoy efficient media file storing, post-production, and processing with a proven data storage solution.

Open-E Data Storage Solutions for Media & Entertainment Sector

In the dynamic landscape of Media & Entertainment, keping and safeguarding data is crucial. No matter how massive your media libraries are, they can all easily be stored, searched, and processed by using Open-E's solutions.

We have bespoke configurations available for film studios, record labels, creative agencies, media companies, video game developers, and more.

Robust Data Storage

Large volumes of media files should be organized appropriately in order to make working with them more convenient. Thus, the ideal data storage solution must meet all the criteria necessary to improve performance. With Open-E JovianDSS, we can create the best match for your enterprise by capitalizing on:

  • High cache hit rate by using ARC's most recently used (MRU) and most frequently used (MFU) Read
  • Cache algorithms
  • Compression, for improved performance
  • Unlimited scalability with storage expansion during production 
  • A few or a dozen volumes/shares instead of one (performance optimization)
  • Unlimited file & volume size

Data Storage for Recording,
Streaming, and Post-Production


The data storage solution can be optimized to meet very defined requirements. If the data storage solution is optimized for media recording only, then the key factor would be the write performance. Should the solution be optimized for video streaming, it would require high read performance instead.


In video post-production, storage performance is important for both read and write operations when the raw footage is processed. It’s also very demanding for both the CPU and RAM. Open-E JovianDSS is a flexible solution that can easily be configured and used to optimize every type of data storage, even the most demanding media and entertainment business purposes.


Data breaches at Sony Pictures (2023) and CD Projekt (2021) underscore the critical need for robust storage solutions. These solutions must shield against human errors, system downtime, and malicious cyber threats like ransomware. Regardless of file size, consistent and comprehensive backups are essential to mitigate risks of data loss. The resilience of these storage systems ensures seamless continuity in multimedia production, preserving creativity and safeguarding valuable assets.

Data Protection

Our On- and Off-site Data Protection is an approach that minimize the risk of data loss due to all kinds of unexpected events (e.g., ransomware attack, theft, fire, or other natural disasters). This solution enables fast data restoration should any such issue occur and even allows for all of the data to have snapshots of it made, up to as often as once every 5 minutes through our snapshots and retention plan.
