Workstations, Render Farms, Networking
Digistor can assist facilities to improve their planning, designing and installing flexible and scalable infrastructure to meet current and future client needs. Learn more about workstations, render farms, networking.
Shared Storage and Collaborative Workgroups
Teams working in content production need to share media and other assets and collaborate on projects. Digistor can provide you with fully scalable shared storage to meet the needs of your pipeline. Storage can be on your premises, in the Cloud, or a hybrid of both, allowing teams to work where they need to be rather than where they have to be. Work together seamlessly sharing the same media assets within the facility or remotely and complete projects faster using an optimised, end-to-end content creation workflow. An effective storage plan needs to consider backup and archive strategies to keep media safe while still remaining accessible. Digistor has the knowledge and experience to guide clients through this critical infrastructure selection and implementation. Learn more about shared storage
Media Asset Management (MAM) and Production Asset Management (PAM)
Effectively managing and sharing media assets between projects and team members is a critical part of any studio's success. To safely store, share, track, locate and re-use media in a way that is simple to manage and use is an important part of the solutions that Digistor design and provide. Digistor can also implement PAM solutions to help teams manage every step of the production process. Learn more about asset/production management
Licence Consolidation and Optimisation
Navigating multiple vendor offerings can be complex and may introduce license compliance issues. We can assist to ensure you select the most efficient model and economical alternatives based on;
- perpetual or subscription licensing, including Support or Maintenance
- fixed/node-locked or multi-user/network deployments
- co-termed or aligned pricing options versus potentially more expensive monthly or termed based licenses
Additionally we can assist with license management via an Administration console, tools such as Flexlm or RLM and reporting options to ensure up-to-date license compliance and audit readiness.
