Situation
Public television music program Austin City Limits had archived more than 4,000 hours of videotape including every episode, unaired songs, and alternate camera angles. These videotapes started to slowly deteriorate. Staff at producing station KLRU saw music history at risk so they set out to restore, digitize, and preserve the video library within a constrained budget.
Solution
KLRU chose Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage as an effective, cost-efficient solution. The team’s internet connection was too slow to support the task at hand on its desired timeline, so they used a Backblaze Fireball rapid data ingest tool to speed the effort—they loaded 40 TB of media into the Fireball, from which it was quickly downloaded into their Backblaze B2 account.
Result
Backblaze B2 is now the safe, secure home to an accessible archive of performances by artists including Johnny Cash, The Foo Fighters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Coldplay. Staff need not fear any of their once-in-a-lifetime recordings will be lost. What’s more, they now have the ability to restore and serve up higher-resolution files as needed.

40 TB seems rather . . . small.
