As the leading provider of cable, entertainment and communications products and services in the United States. The media center of this company is charged with providing Video on Demand (VOD) content to the field. Video assets flow into the center in a variety of file formats, via a range of delivery mechanisms, from multiple sources. The size and sheer number of files caused the media center to frequently hit that limit, forcing the VOD operations staff to manually delete older files. Dynamic load balancing with F5 Acopia has allowed the cable giant to achieve its objective of creating an efficient video asset storage and distribution system that keeps files accessible while maximizing utilization of existing resources.
