This calculation is complex and it totally depends on the concurrent users, incoming and outgoing content traffic. We can split the bandwidth utilization of eMAM into 3 different categories:
- Low resolution traffic - we are encoding the low resolution proxy file at 1Mbps bit rate. When 100 users are connected to eMAM system, eMAM web server will consume 100 Mbps outgoing traffic to serve the requirement.
- High resolution traffic- This bandwidth is directly related to the customer’s daily ingest, archive, restore and delivery of the content.
- Metadata traffic - This is another factor that can increase the bandwidth. Suppose, in eMAM Director Interface, 100 users select 100 Assets per page, which adds up HTTP and database traffic in and out of the servers.
eMAM Support ISCSI (1Gbps), Ethernet (1Gbps, 10Gbps) and Fiber Channel (4Gbps, 8Gbps) to route various traffic.
