Improve your 4K Production Workflow

What if the right software storage could eliminate data silos and provide performance for today’s 4K workflows and whatever tomorrow brings?
Quobyte can!

Unleash your digital production workflow

Fast, shared file access is key to post-production productivity

Artists and editors work together on tight budgets and even tighter deadlines to fulfill increasing client needs and meet viewer demands. With HD and 4K workflows becoming the norm, storage requirements are high: you need excellent performance and reliable service for an interruption-free collaboration.

Team Collaboration

Optimize Your Post-Production Workflow

Unified Storage Enables Frictionless Collaboration

Quobyte provides a single storage platform and namespace for the variety of file types in the workflow and gives post-production teams fast access to their files. Each person in the workflow, whether on a Mac, Windows, or Linux machine can access the same file. These same files can also be accessed via our stateless S3 proxy for collaboration among everyone involved in the post-production process. Quobyte thus eliminates silos of content and delivers a unified storage experience for productive collaboration.

Quobyte for Post-Production

  • Increased collaboration and productivity
  • Eliminates needlessly copying, exporting, and uploading files between systems and platforms
  • More efficient use of network bandwidth and storage capacity
  • Eliminate management overhead and complexity
  • Automatic file prefetching for jitter-free playback of 4K streams from applications such as NUKE or Autodesk’s Flame

Performance to Fuel Creativity

Quobyte Software Storage provides high IOPS with consistent sub-millisecond latency to deliver the raw performance compositing and rendering demand. The same Quobyte system also delivers parallel I/O for unrivaled throughput to support concurrent streams of 4K video with jitter-free playback – no more high-compression files.

Scaling Quobyte storage could not be easier – simply add additional nodes as needed, even on the fly. With reliability and data safety built-in, no matter how large you scale your environment, your data will be available to ensure the creativity in your VFX studio doesn’t stop.

One Storage System for Playout, Streaming, and CDN Origin Storage

Quobyte’s software storage provides a single platform and namespace for storing video in any format. Its complete fault tolerance and automation capabilities ensure 24-7 operations – no need for human intervention even when facing hardware outages or running software updates and system upgrades.

A CDN needs an origin storage system that becomes a critical performance component on cache miss or application request. You need to reduce loading times, so your customers won’t have to wait for their videos. Quobyte provides the high throughput and scalable bandwidth needed – even on a single video.

By using commodity HDDs and SSDs, you can provide cost-efficient, scalable capacity and performance when it’s needed and where it’s needed. On top of all that, Quobyte is easy to manage, run, and extend to make sure that you don't have to scale your payroll when scaling your storage.

Quobyte for Playout

  • Software storage for a flexible and responsive infrastructure
  • Built-in fault tolerance for “always-on” operation
  • Cost effective, multi-petabyte content stores built on commodity hardware (HDD, SSD, NVMe, SMR)
  • Easily scale storage performance and capacity
  • Eliminate storage management overhead and complexity
  • Support for Mac, Windows, Linux, and S3
