Rotor Studios Chooses Dell EMC Storage For CG Studio

Sydney, Australia’s Rotor Studios has upgraded its shared storage with Digistor and the Dell EMC Isilon H500 for computer graphics.

With Digistor’s help and expertise as a consultant, Rotor Studios chose a 4 x Dell EMC Isilon H500 cluster and shared storage solution with a RAW size of 240TB.

The Dell EMC Isilon H500 NAS Storage product they chose uses Intel Xeon processors and supports a wide range of enterprise file workloads on the Dell EMC Isilon H500 scale-out NAS platform.

This enables Rotor Studios to gain high throughput for demanding applications and gives them scalability to handle unstructured data growth.

The newly-installed Isilon H500 also integrates an efficient hybrid storage design that combines four Isilon nodes in a single 4U chassis and delivers over 80 percent storage utilization, which helps Rotor Studios lower their storage and related data center costs.
