5600 °K Productions implements hybrid storage solution thanks to the work of ATTO Technology and ACNC

ATTO Technology, Inc. is a company focused in providing network, storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments. On the other hand, AC&NC is specialized in on-premise data storage. Together, they have joined forces to offer a storage solution to 5600 °K Productions. This is an enterprise that provides film and video services.

5600 °K productions required uncompromising speed and reliability in their new storage architecture, able to produce current projects as well as all those going forward.

The solution, featuring ATTO Celerity™ 16Gb/s Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters and a JetStor 816FX Fibre Channel Storage Area Network platform with 16 12TB SAS drives, represents a model of performance and function for new and existing studios looking to achieve a balance between high workloads, increasing image resolutions, scene and production complexity, manageability and ROI.

The joint ATTO/AC&NC JetStor system reliably stores up to five terabytes of multi-camera footage every day.

“Our system has met our every expectation,” said Justin Antippa, producer and director at 5600 °K productions. “Even with eight editors and two animators working with huge files simultaneously, the solution provides the speed and reliability to meet our every deadline. Our clients are happy, which makes us happy.”

“Fibre Channel continues to show its strength in high-performance, high-reliability applications just like they needed at 5600 °K’s new facility,” said Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO, ATTO Technology. “Built around JetStor’s advanced, hybrid storage technology, any studio would be ready to tackle the next generation of media production with this solution.”
