Visual Effects Post-Production Leader Glassworks Deploys Mellanox & Pixit Media Technology To Boost Performance Of Its Storage And Networking Architecture

Stocks in this article: MLNX

NAB — Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for servers and storage systems, and Pixit Media, provider of enterprise-ready storage, network and archive solutions, today announced that Glassworks has selected a combined Mellanox and Pixit Media solution to power its visual effects (VFX) and post-production storage and networking infrastructure. Glassworks is using Mellanox’s end-to-end Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) solution, which provides InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity on the same wire, and Pixit Media’s PixStor technology to increase the performance and efficiency of its system without needing to add servers. The solution also future-proofs its infrastructure for 4K workflows.

Glassworks, a leading European post-production and VFX facility, upgraded the storage and networking architecture in its Amsterdam office to Pixit Media’s new PixStor solution. PixStor is a unified, highly scalable storage and networking architecture that guarantees performance to an unlimited number of file-sharing or streaming clients from a single, central storage location. PixStor leverages Mellanox’s end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 40/56Gb/s Ethernet interconnect solutions with VPI technology to provide a seamless, high-performance rate of media data traffic from storage disk to creative application desktop.

“The ability to share project data between creative departments without the need for multiple, proprietary storage systems will have a big impact on our business,” said Will Isaac, head of engineering at Glassworks. “Our creative staff has instant access to content, enabling quicker and more elegant project collaboration at a reduced cost. As an innovator in an evolving industry, we need to be ready to deliver 4K projects without any further investment in our network. It’s a win-win.”

Glassworks projects depend on a collaborative workflow between offline creative applications. These projects require data assets to be shared from a central file repository as well as sent to client-attend finishing suites for grading and editing projects that require sustained playback streams of high resolution sequences. Traditionally, these projects required large, time-consuming data set transfers between the two creative departments.
