Red Bee Media has entered into a strategic partnership with Pixit Media to use the company’s PixStor product as the central storage platform that underpins its playout infrastructure. 


Ethernet-based and API-driven, PixStor provides a single data environment that brings together all commodity hardware, applications and systems in the workflow and secure collaborative access for users wherever they are.  


Working with Red Bee, Pixit Media has tailored and enhanced the PixStor platform to deliver secure multi-tenancy capabilities within a single storage namespace so costly management and complexity of separate infrastructure stacks to separate and protect client data can be avoided. Using PixStor, Red Bee can now deploy logical data separation and isolation, scale services up or down, all within its unified PixStor environment.  


PixStor has been deployed at Red Bee Media playout centres in Sweden and UK, including its London-based Red Lab R&D facility, with other sites to follow.


“Red Bee’s offering is at the forefront of the industry and we are delighted to be collaborating so closely with them to develop and deliver new workflow solutions,” comments Ben Leaver, CEO Pixit Media (pictured). “With PixStor at the heart of their software-defined infrastructure, we are able to help Red Bee remain agile, flexible, and responsive to their customer needs.”


“With PixStor, we have a proven highly resilient storage architecture upon which we can rely,” says Dave Travis, Chief Product & Technology Officer, Red Bee Media. “Combine this with Pixit Media’s consultative approach, access to their workflow experts and 24/7 support services, we also have a responsive technology partner to help us reap the benefits and future possibilities of a software-defined environment.  They’re a great team to work with.”
