JetStor Delivers Performance Needed for High-Def, 3D Film Production
Evergreen Studios met its needs and then some by replacing its legacy, mid-tier storage products with JetStor platforms. At any given time, the production company stores about half a petabyte of video and multimedia data on its seven JetStor RAID arrays, consuming only half their total capacity.
Key for Evergreen Studios is the performance that the JetStor chassis deliver. It found that they can provide throughout of up to one gigabyte per second and the JetStor SAS 724F RAID Array, which is provisioned with ultra-fast solid-state drives (SSDs), can hit speeds of two gigabytes per second. The production company intended to use the arrays for offline work, but the systems deliver enough speed for online editing as well.
