Paul McCartney's Big Cloud
McCartney's digitized collection features 1 million-plus items, including photographs, video footage from live concerts, rolls of film, videotapes and reels, music recordings, original works of art, as well as memorabilia.
The library is built on an HP Converged Infrastructure, based on modular building blocks of HP servers, storage, networking and management software. The assets are housed in a private cloud managed from HP commercial data centers. "It's really exciting because even if I'm out on tour anywhere in the world, I will be able to say, okay, 'Wings 1976 tour' and instantly, it will come up. You've got all the information, all the photos from it. And you'll have written accounts – personal accounts and critical accounts – of what happened," said McCartney in a statement. more on this story
