Creative Technologist, Tinker Imagineers
We invested in a 24D/EX16 with 64TB of storage. This was a deliberate choice, because we’re able to upgrade the system with SSD’s in the unpopulated drive slots. With this option we’re able to expand the speed of the current system when the workload grows.
We decided to invest in two 48TB Facilis TerraBlock 24D shared storage systems that enable both our video production and our graphics departments to organize all this data and also allow various team members to share and access it.
Organizing media in the Facilis system is easy, and knowing that our TerraBlock offers integrated asset tracking gives us added confidence as we evolve towards new offerings for digital distribution to our members and educators in the future.
When it comes to being able to access terabytes of material at any resolution, Facilis is the perfect solution. It is cost-effective, user-friendly, and the storage capability and ease of use is a real highlight for us.
A key benefit Facilis offers that few other storage vendors provide is the ability to support both Ethernet and Fibre connections without added complexity. This flexibility gives our team confidence that whatever expansion or changes may occur, the Facilis system will accommodate.
