Manage assets, not files.

Demands on storage systems are having a significant impact on the world of visual effects (VFX), animation and post production; as shots continue to grow in complexity and workflows become far more intricate and far less linear. How a studio manages these pressures on storage resources — both peak storage demand and storage workflows — offers a significant edge in meeting creative challenges.

To respond, studios need an adaptable storage architecture that can move the right data to the right class of storage based on business needs from project to project; to effectively manage the increasing amount of data that is required online longer and to avoid a scenario where costly and scarce storage is provisioned for short sharp peaks.


Mediaflux delivers smarter data storage with more flexibility.

Mediaflux performs as a rapidly adaptable smart-tiered data storage infrastructure that virtualizes all storage classes into a single unified view for more flexible data management workflows that support creative processes across the entire supply chain.

Mediaflux is a media management platform that adapts to your studio's needs.

Move any type of data backward and forwards between any storage system, on-prem or cloud, with minimal operational impact to existing infrastructures.

Build responsive vfx/animation asset pipelines

Focus on the creative process, even as workflows change, with rapidly adaptable asset pipelines triggered by events and policies controlled by rich metadata.

More control over sensitive assets and data

Everything is audited and every change is versioned. Gain insight and monitor who accessed what, when and from where.

Optimize storage costs

Automatically place less-frequently accessed content on lower-cost storage whilst keeping it readily available to artists through normal folder views.

Innovate faster

Build a powerful integration platform for whatever technologies are currently used across the pipeline – or might be used in the future – without disrupting production.

Access the right assets

Present customized views of asset hierarchies for different creative departments to simplify access to the right asset versions at the right time.

Protect assets

Take advantage of hybrid – on-prem and cloud-backup and disaster recovery strategies that support unique production demands.

Reduce pipeline complexity

Manage billions of files in a single view, regardless of the type of data or storage location. File names stay the same even when storage locations change, simplifying artist interaction with the pipeline.

Whitepaper: Effortless Ransomware Rapid Recovery Solution for Media & Entertainment

Ransomware attacks are a significant threat to the Media and Entertainment industry. Holding valuable assets under lock and key until payment is made, with no guarantee that the assets will be returned upon payment, can cause major productions to stall. Or perhaps even more devastating, the intellectual property of the production could be leaked. Recovering from these attacks can be a slow, costly, process that harms production timelines. Point in Time provides a rapid recovery solution even in the most complex workflows, ensuring no critical assets are lost when ransomware strikes, while also minimizing the scheduling impact ransomware incurs.
