The video content will primarily be available for some 8,000 students in 350 labs at the university in Lausanne, Switzerland. But Nobs also made sure the performances would be available for profitable purposes.
The EPFL and the Jazz Montreux Festival plan to show the video footage on screens in cafs throughout the world. Today, a few of the cafs are already open in major cities such as London, Sydney, and Paris; New York is next on the list.
Because the Amplidata storage system is modular, meaning it can grow CPU capacity and storage capacity separately, one large system will be installed at the FTPL and smaller 1U systems can be installed at the cafs, Delidais said. That means servers and drives don't have to be moved to the various locations and alleviates the need to stream data over a WAN.
