Avnet Deploying High Performance, Cloud-Based Universal Video Streaming Solutions with Digital Realty

06/14/2022 | 05:46am EDT

Solutions enable video broadcasters and application providers of any size to evaluate, deploy and scale their services immediately and cost-effectively.

Leading global technology solutions provider Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT) and Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), the largest global provider of cloud- and carrier-neutral data center, colocation and interconnection solutions, are collaborating to enable customers to virtually and cost-effectively evaluate, deploy and scale hardware for high-performance cloud-based and secure universal video streaming solutions. The initial offering is built on a 3rd Gen AMD EPYC-based server, integrated with Xilinx U30 FPGA* accelerator cards, delivering exceptional performance and flexibility at scale. Additional details will be available at Digital Realty's annual industry conference, MarketplaceLIVE 2022, in New York City, June 14-15, 2022.

Research and Markets estimates that the global video streaming market size will expand at a 21% CAGR through 2028 reaching USD $224B. This exponential growth in video content, combined with the need to securely maintain and stream that content, requires immense computing capabilities. Such capabilities require extensive capital outlay including equipment acquisition, power, space, connectivity, and personnel simply to evaluate solutions let alone to deploy and scale.

By leveraging each other's core competencies, Avnet and Digital Realty provide customers with a means to evaluate cutting-edge hardware virtually and cost-effectively. Additionally, when customers seek to deploy and scale, they may do so under either traditional (CAPEX) or non-traditional (OPEX or subscription) purchasing models where Avnet facilitates a single point of engagement for all transactions.

Growing and established digital content providers will both benefit from virtualizing and outsourcing how they purchase video streaming solutions to support their growing base of live and on-demand video streaming applications. These include:

cable and entertainment companies

health care providers


military organizations

aerospace companies

educational institutions

financial technology companies

Applications such as entertainment (including sports), distance learning, collaboration, eCommerce, social media-based applications, and more require the unprecedented performance delivered by leading-edge platforms, built around AMD/Xilinx components. The scale required to deliver an excellent and secure user experience demands new consumption models like those offered by Avnet and Digital Realty.

'In our ongoing collaboration with Digital Realty and AMD/Xilinx, Avnet Integrated is transforming how companies evaluate, deploy and scale high-value hardware - productizing OPEX and subscription models which then enable companies to maximize their investment in IP development and customer acquisition,' says Erik West, head of marketing, Avnet Integrated.

'Digital Realty is actively supporting the industry's shift to a data-centric architecture and is evolving its interconnection capabilities with an updated roadmap for PlatformDIGITAL, a first of its kind global data center platform for scaling digital businesses. As we further enhance our partnership with Avnet Integrated, we are enabling enterprises to dramatically accelerate their AI innovation timescales with Xilinx U30 AI-ready data centers,' says Tony Bishop, SVP, Platform, Growth and Marketing, Digital Realty.

'High-performance digital streaming solutions can cost $5-$10K per 1U form factor. Avnet's experience and fiscal magnitude, longstanding partnership with AMD/Xilinx, along with Digital Realty, uniquely positions us to materially transform how these high-value solutions are scaled through acquisition programs like subscription models,' adds Scott Tippin, global director of Supplier Development, Avnet.

An FPGA is a field-programmable gate array that is a programmable device that uses prebuilt logic blocks and programmable routing resources. Systems utilizing FPGAs can be easily reprogrammed and upgraded to meet new system requirements which reduces the cost of long-term maintenance. The Xilinx U30 FPGA accelerator card provides lower cost, single slot, lower power (25W), low-profile and higher density so it uses less real estate & energy.
