Joint Fibre-Channel-based storage solution is a model of performance and function for modern media production facilities
ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of network, storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, and AC&NC, a leader in on-premise data storage, joined forces to provide an advanced, high-performance storage solution to 5600 °K productions, an international leading provider of film and video services.
The solution, featuring ATTO Celerity™ 16Gb/s Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters and a JetStor 816FX Fibre Channel Storage Area Network platform with 16 12TB SAS drives, represents a model of performance and function for new and existing studios looking to achieve a balance between high workloads, increasing image resolutions, scene and production complexity, manageability and ROI.
5600 °K productions required uncompromising speed and reliability in their new storage architecture, able to produce current projects as well as all those going forward. The joint ATTO/AC&NC JetStor system reliably stores up to five terabytes of multi-camera footage every day.
“Our [new] system has met our every expectation,” said Justin Antippa, producer and director at 5600 °K productions. “Even with eight editors and two animators working with huge files simultaneously, the solution provides the speed and reliability to meet our every deadline. Our clients are happy, which makes us happy.”
“Fibre Channel continues to show its strength in high-performance, high-reliability applications just like they needed at 5600 °K’s new facility,” said Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO, ATTO Technology. “Built around JetStor’s advanced, hybrid storage technology, any studio would be ready to tackle the next generation of media production with this solution.”
The JetStor 816FX high-performance 16-bay FC SAN storage system features Intel’s latest D1500 dual-core processor, cutting-edge 12Gb SAS 3.0 technology, and the latest SANOS 4.0 (SAN Storage Management Operating System v4.0) by QSAN. It’s populated with ATTO Celerity FC HBAs that deliver up to 3200MB/s throughput per port in full-duplex mode.
