NEP, a leading worldwide provider of outsourced solutions to the broadcast and live event industries, has designed and deployed a scalable, reliable, high-performance content distribution network (CDN) in the Netherlands using the Caringo Swarm cloud and object storage platform. Offered as a complete software or hardware appliance, Swarm provides a storage platform for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale. Users no longer need to migrate data into disparate solutions for content delivery, ongoing analysis and data protection.

The NEP CDN serves more than 650,000 user accounts accessed with different consumption methods ranging from monthly subscriptions to pay-per-view. Requiring a comprehensive platform that could provide scalability to its CDN and meet requirements in terms of capacity, cost, throughput, growth and reliability, coupled with full hardware independence, NEP chose Caringo Swarm after a long evaluation process that included several vendors.

"We chose Caringo Swarm because it was the most flexible platform for us and had good per-terabyte licensing," says Gerbrand de Ridder, head of R&D and lead system architect of NEP The Netherlands. "We started with 100 TBs and now have over 1.25 PBs across 200 nodes from different hardware vendors. Caringo Swarm is a key component to deliver that high-end quality service that NEP has always aimed for."
