Title (EN) DYNAMIC SELECTION OF STORAGE DEVICE FOR STORING MEDIA
(FR) SÉLECTION DYNAMIQUE DE DISPOSITIF DE STOCKAGE PERMETTANT DE STOCKER DES SUPPORTS
Abstract:
(EN) Methods, systems, and computer readable media may be operable to facilitate the dynamic selection of a storage device for storing media. When a recording request is received, storage information associated with resources of one or more networks and one or more storage devices may be retrieved, and a network may be selected for recording and storing the requested media based upon an algorithm that considers the retrieved information. One or more specific storage devices located on the selected network may be selected for recording and storing the requested media. The selection of the one or more specific storage devices may be made based upon an algorithm that considers the available resources and capabilities of available storage devices.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés, des systèmes et des supports lisibles par ordinateur qui peuvent être utilisés pour faciliter la sélection dynamique d'un dispositif de stockage permettant de stocker des supports. Lorsqu'une demande d'enregistrement est reçue, des informations de stockage associées à des ressources d'un ou plusieurs réseaux et un ou plusieurs dispositifs de stockage peuvent être récupérées, et un réseau peut être sélectionné pour enregistrer et stocker le contenu multimédia demandé sur la base d'un algorithme qui prend en compte les informations extraites. Un ou plusieurs dispositifs de stockage spécifiques situés sur le réseau sélectionné peuvent être sélectionnés pour enregistrer et stocker le contenu multimédia demandé. La sélection du ou des dispositifs de stockage spécifiques peut être effectuée sur la base d'un algorithme qui prend en compte les ressources disponibles et les capacités des dispositifs de stockage disponibles.
