Korean Educational Broadcasting System (EBS) uses HP X9000 Network Storage System powered by Intel® Xeon® processors to serve 30,000 simultaneous users (M&E)
The Korea Educational Broadcasting System (EBS) was founded in 1951 when Korea Broadcasting, which previously broadcast 15 minutes of daily radio lessons to teachers, broadened its territory by airing a TV school and established a TV and radio channel, specializing in education. In 2000, EBS started Internet broadcasting and now offers its online educational aptitude test prep lectures through a dedicated website. With this change, they needed a new storage solution to cope with significant increases in downloads of its online tests. The HP X9000 Network Storage System powered by Intel® Xeon® processors provided an easy to maintain file system that allowed EBS to increase storage capacity and performance without service interruptions.
