    Cutting Edge was looking for a substantial network attached storage (NAS) to fulfil postproduction file storage requirements as an archiver. The main issue was configuring a cost-effective and reliable storage system that could meet the demanding requirements of storage and speed from high resolution 4K digital video files. Due to the fact that higher resolution footage generates substantial demands on rendering, processing and storing time. Many competitors offer storage systems but also lock clients in on future upgrades and expansions as hardware will not be compatible from different brands.



    How We Helped

    With our expertise, we were able to fortify a long-term solution that optimised their servers and workstation configurations, which provided a highly effective and efficient environment that boosts their competitiveness in the post-production industry. One of the main priorities Cutting Edge had was storage density and network speeds, as their previous storage servers were becoming redundant due to the storage demands of 4K digital video files filling up their servers. We offered a long-term and high-end storage solution based on Supermicro architecture to support a massively dense storage server with seamless network speeds as a maxed-out solution.



    Results

    We provided Cutting Edge with a server that met their storage, network speed, and specification requirements, paired with very competitive pricing and the flexibility to make any necessary adjustments to the system. We not only offered high quality and reliable solutions, but also focused on delivering a high level of support and service through our expert technicians. We ultimately understood their technology environment and business workload demands within their postproduction industry, which has allowed us to create a positive relationship in regularly providing IT solutions to Cutting Edge over many years.
