New “On-Premise Managed Storage™” Scores High Marks in Blackmagic Design’s Testing Process
July 25, 2018 – Atlanta, GA – DigitalGlue has announced that its newly launched creative.space – an On-Premise Managed Storage™ (OPMS) service, has been optimized for DaVinci Resolve workflows and has successfully met the technical requirements for inclusion in Blackmagic Design’s Configuration Guide. DigitalGlue, a leading equipment, integration, and software development provider, also designs and implements solutions for complete turnkey content creation, post-production, and distribution.
DaVinci Resolve, the industry’s fastest growing non-linear video editor and Hollywood’s favorite color corrector, was designed for true collaboration. Multiple editors, assistants, colorists, VFX artists, and sound designers can all work on the same project simultaneously making it a potential new industry standard for high-end post production and an ideal fit for creative.space’s OPMS concept.
According to Tim Anderson, CEO/CTO of DigitalGlue, each creative.space system is pre-loaded with a DaVinci Resolve optimized PostreSQL database server enabling users to simply create databases in DaVinci Resolve using the same address they use to connect to their storage. In addition, users can schedule database backups with snapshots, ensuring that work is preserved timely and securely. creative.space also uses media intelligent caching to move project data and assets into a “fast lane” allowing all collaborators to experience seamless performance.
“We brought a creative.space entry level //AUTEUR unit optimized with a DaVinci Resolve database to the Blackmagic Design training facility in Burbank, California,” explained Nick Anderson, Product Manager for creative.space. “The //AUTEUR was put through a series of rigorous testing processes and passed each with flying colors! Our Media Intelligent caching allowed the unit to provide full performance to twelve systems at a level that would normally require a much larger and more expensive system.”
//AUTEUR was the first service in the creative.space platform to launch. creative.space, the next-generation of media storage, targets collaborative workflows by optimizing the latest, most advanced hardware and software for efficiency and increased productivity. The //AUTEUR starts at 120TB RAW capacity across 12 drives in a 24-bay 4 RU chassis with open bays for rapid growth. Every system is custom-built to address each client’s unique needs. Entry level systems are designed for small to medium workgroups using compressed 4K, 6K, and 8K workflows and can scale for 4K uncompressed workflows (including 4K OpenEXR) and large multi-user environments.
