Post-production house standardises network storage

Arif Mohamed

Rushes, a post-production house for CSI Miami, Match of the Day, Hard Candy and Arctic Monkeys, has standardised on a network storage system from Exanet.

It claimed that its price/performance and support for heterogeneous IT systems helped Rushes to single it out from the competition.

Rushes implemented Exanet’s software-based, clustered, network-attached storage (NAS) system, ExaStore, working with London-based reseller ERA which specialises in creative and visual computing.

Rushes chose a two node ExaStore system, running on IBM servers and storage boxes, but providing storage for a multi-vendor IT system.

Tim Wharton, director of engineering at Rushes, said, “Our collaborative working environment consists of Linux workstations and rendering servers, as well as Windows machines and Apple Macs. We needed a central storage repository that could easily serve data to such a heterogeneous environment.

"Exanet, with its native support of multiple protocols, gave us a complete solution that significantly simplified our infrastructure and workflows.”
