MLB Advanced Media (MLBAM), the interactive media and internet company of Major League Baseball, selected EMC technologies to support live video streaming and e-commerce for baseball fans around the world.
Using EMC Isilon scale-out storage for its live streaming and video on demand services of all MLB games, and EMC VMAX 10K enterprise storage for its applications, MLBAM has captured, encoded and distributed nearly 18,000 live video events, including up to 60 live streams of baseball games every day.
“Live streaming is like turning on a fire hose,” says Joe Inzerillo, senior vice president, content technology/CTO, MLB Advanced Media. He adds that Isilon technology is easily able to keep up with the “intensity and ferocity” of MLB’s video streams.
