With Zadara, BASE Media Cloud Helps Green Rock Save on Storage

Earlier this year, Green Rock, a production, editing and finishing facility in London, turned to BASE Media Cloud’s platform for nightly backups of dailies and each day’s project files via a private VPN to BASE Media Cloud’s resources hosted in a secure London data center. Using Zadara Storage’s software-defined Virtual Private Storage Arrays (VPSA), BASE Media Cloud set up a three-way mirror copy approach using cost-effective SATA disk.

Because of Zadara’s Storage as a Service (STaaS) business model, BASE Media Cloud charges Green Rock on a pay-per-use basis for only the storage it uses, without contractual lock-ins, right-sizing storage capacity to Green Rock’s real-world media project workloads. The storage resource is as high-performing, secure and on-demand as on-premises hardware, only it is fully maintained and managed for the Green Rock team 24/7/365.

Green Rock estimates that within its first several months alone, it achieved savings of approximately 20 percent by using BASE Media Cloud’s solution compared to on-premise storage hardware or software. But as it looks to extend the service from BASE, it will save thousands of dollars more from avoiding on-site storage investment. This approach to backing up files is also more time-efficient—time that now can be spent on the creative product.

Ben Foakes is managing director of BASE Media Cloud. BASE Media Cloud provides tailored cloud storage and private cloud workflow services for media companies.
