As high-resolution graphics and rich cinematic films dominate the media and entertainment industry, many professionals are turning to hybrid cloud storage to scale data growth and control costs for post-production work and storage. When resolutions get higher, file sizes soar. A single film can produce over 2 PB of data. Digital content joins terabytes of historical analog data stretching the capacity of traditional NAS infrastructures for on-premises private clouds.
But storage is only part of the story.
Producers, editors, special effects developers and animation experts all rely on easy access and optimized workloads to bring their stories to life. They don’t have time for interrupted workflows as they search through years of content for past scenes, clips, images or sound files.
