European Post-Production Company Chooses Infortrend Scalable NAS for Performance, Efficient Management, and Storage Flexibility


TAIPEI, May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Infortrend® Technology, Inc. (TWSE:2495), an industry-leading enterprise storage provider, helped optimize a creative production company’s post-production NAS storage capacity by Europe with the EonStor CS scale-out NAS. The Infortrend NAS solution maximizes storage capacity, eases management, and provides flexible storage expansion to increase post-production productivity.

A creative post-production house in Europe which specializes in creative commercials, post-production editing and animation as a one-touch, have storage issues that need to be addressed. They were the winner of the world’s most recognized international advertising awards, the Clio Awards, and to have a client list that includes world famous brands such as Coca-Cola, Nike, Riot Games, etc. However, the the explosion in data volume has left them with performance and storage capacity issues.

The studio uses three NAS storage systems for special effects and non-linear editing, as well as file sharing, backup and archiving. Their main challenge is that the data is stored in three independent volumes, which makes it difficult to efficiently use storage capacities and the manual maintenance required to organize the data on the corresponding NAS systems. Therefore, the customer wants to replace their storage system with a single-volume solution to save management effort while providing dynamic scalability.

To meet their needs, Infortrend offered five of their EonStor CS3024 scale-out NAS solutions. Multi-node scale-out NAS architecture provides a single volume for easy management and expansion. The system can be further expanded by scaling up to 144 nodes and up to 84 hard drives per node, reaching approximately 100PB of storage capacity to keep up with ever-growing projects.

The outstanding performance of EonStor CS3024 is HDD-based and cost-effective for 4K video editing, the 5-node cluster can support up to 34 layers of stutter-free concurrent playback. With four SSDs built into each node as cache, it provides lower latency and improves read/write performance. Additionally, the solution provides a complete data protection design, including RAID and Erasure vsode to prevent data loss caused by disk or node failures.

“EonStor CS has all the prerequisites a post production house needs with its performance, flexible scalability, and a variety of data protection mechanisms for that extra peace of mind to easily create and edit,” said Frank LeeSenior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.
