Storage Acceleration and Hybrid Cloud for Post Production
UNMATCHED POST-PRODUCTION PERFORMANCE
Remove VFX, animation and game production bottlenecks and keep your storage performance and capacity ahead of schedule during the most demanding projects. Growing workloads and global infrastructures need accelerated and shared access to storage infrastructure — and you can get it with Avere.
NAS REINVENTED: CLOUD ON DEMAND
Cloud bursting to accommodate demand during peak production has never been more accessible or affordable. Avere’s Virtual FXT Edge filer puts a full functioning file system in the compute cloud to keep production humming. In just a few minutes, your data center connects to your cloud compute services and your team is managing and scaling applications like rendering with the convenience of familiar NAS in the cloud. No need to move data. No need to buy permanent capacity.
When you add an Avere FXT Edge cluster to your infrastructure, your digital assets get placed on optimal Edge filer media based upon access pattern and file size. Data then moves dynamically and automatically between the FXT cluster and your NAS filers or your public or private cloud. By separating performance from capacity with Avere, you optimize performance, reduce cost and gain the flexibility to store your data anywhere — on premises or in a cloud with FlashCloud™.
RENDERING THE BEST ON AVERE
Those special effects that bring audiences to the theaters crave performance like never before. With 3D and increased resolutions, rendering demands more out of the storage infrastructure. Working equally well over a WAN or on location, Avere enables creative collaboration around the globe.
TRANSCODING: YOUR MEDIA, THEIR WAY
In the transcoding of media, inherently compute and I/O intensive, storage gridlocks slow down delivery and therefore revenues. Edge filers in your infrastructure put your transcoding workflow in the fast lane, putting content into the hands of paying consumers quickly and affordably.
Your Media At Your Fingertips
Object storage is an attractive way to keep digital libraries of content affordably accessible. With Avere in front of the public cloud or private object storage, long latency to these large files is eliminated. Your digital asset management software can work with object storage through Avere FlashCloud™, which translates file to object protocols for the application. Active archives of your extensive media asset library can be a reality with easy management and lower costs.
JUST SAY "NO" TO MAJOR FORKLIFT UPGRADES
You’ve invested a great deal in your existing NAS system. By adding Avere FXT Edge clusters into your infrastructure, you accelerate performance without time consuming, costly forklift storage upgrades. And, with Avere’s Virtual FXT Edge filers, you can instantly take advantage of unlimited compute resources. FlashCloudTM gives you the flexibility to manage assets between your NAS and your object store, freeing you to place data anywhere it is right for your business.
