EMC’s Isilon scale-out storage decreases project turnaround time and increases energy efficiency by 400 percent
Toonz Animation, India’s off-centre animation house announces the successful deployment of
EMC Isilon scale-out storage. Growing demand of cost-effective and smart scalable storage architectures has been on the verge, meeting the demands of a scalable storage solution and increase the speed of production, thereby enabling Toonz to complete multiple projects quickly and in an efficient manner.
It has also reduced its energy requirements by 25% percent, decreasing the company’s overhead for power and cooling.
Choosing on the solution, K.R Asokan, IT Head, Toonz Animation said, “The throughput performance of Isilon S200 has a direct impact on the business. We can engage with multiple studios and work on simultaneous projects because we know we can achieve fast turnaround times. Toonz reputation of combining creativity and technology has received a significant impetus with this implementation. The company continues to be a leader in animation in India and is making a real impact in production and distribution of animation and live-action content, gaming content, licensing and merchandising.
EMC Isilon is claimed to be an ideal platform to store, manage and protect unstructured data which has enabled Toonz to achieve fast turnaround times and thereby enabled them to engage with multiple studios and work on simultaneous projects.
With the Isilon S200, compositors are now able to work on multiple 2K or HD timelines simultaneously, benefiting from more than 1.4 million network file system ops and over 85 gigabytes per second aggregate throughput from a single file system cluster.
