The scoop on two customer case studies

case_studies

We’re often asked to provide customer case studies, so we picked a couple of contrasting examples to showcase.

After sizing up the competition, The Finish Line (London) opted to deploy an indiestor rack solution.

Over 4U’s of rack space we provide a high-speed shared storage for two online booths, plus a host of back office machines. Everything is pulled together using a Netgear XS switch, which comfortably hauls 4k playback over 10G.

Why go with indiestor over the big players like Avid and EditShare? Primarily I’d say simplicity and a complete lack of bullshit. The server software is incredibly lightweight… Setting up workspaces and handling permissions and users is crazily simple!

When Media Mobil GMBH (Germany) approached us, they had a unique set of requirements. As one of Germany’s leading OB operators they needed a solution that was three things that don’t necessarily go hand in hand: fast, compact & quiet!

The solution was a custom-specified slim-line rack, backed by a SSD based storage pool. Not only is the system whisper quiet, it’s rugged enough to cover tens of thousands of miles in the back of a truck.

The indiestor storage platform gives us amazing flexibility for AVID project and media sharing in a cost effective package. It is quickly available and adaptable, with great stability. The indiestor team provide excellent personal support and we couldn’t be happier with them.
