HP Launches Paul McCartney Private Digital Library; Collection Currently Has About 1 Million Items

From HP:

HP today announced the launch of Paul McCartney’s private cloud-based digital library.

The HP solution provides MPL Communications, Ltd. with instant access to its diverse media assets on an HP Converged Infrastructure ready for future growth.

McCartney’s collection currently includes more than 1 million items, including photographs; video footage from live concerts; rolls of film, videotapes and reels; music recordings; original works of art; as well as memorabilia. With HP, McCartney’s personal assets are now digitized.


This solution provides MPL Communications, Ltd. the flexibility required to deal with its rapidly expanding library and to ensure the security of McCartney’s priceless assets. MPL Communications, Ltd. will house a copy locally of the digital library to reduce the organization’s dependence on the speed of the local telecommunication system to upload or download assets from the private cloud. HP will maintain a redundant system in a remote data facility, with a full replication of the digital library.
