This summer, NBC captured history while setting standards for the future.

Building on its history covering the Olympic Games, NBC provided viewers in the United States a front row seat to the Games of the XXXI Olympiad.

Projects such as covering the Games, a 17-day live concurrent event, require the ultimate in scalable, reliable storage. NBC uses the EMC Isilon product line to store and stage video captured during these irreplaceable moments of sporting glory, as well as audio, stills and motion graphics.

Isilon’s 3 Petabyte storage repository bridges the gap from Stamford to Rio, where it functioned as a single large Data Lake, enabling real-time global collaborative production supporting the entire broadcast. Adding Isilon nodes without downtime allows the addition of storage capacity and network throughput while maintaining seamless access to a rock solid platform.

NBC selected the EMC Isilon product line as a reliable, proven infrastructure, to manage their storage.
