Jasco Products Company, a leading developer and distributor of GE and other leading brand products, recently took critical steps to strengthen its marketing project workflow with the installation of a TitaniumZ-8 Ethernet-based shared storage system from Small Tree. With the introduction of the TitaniumZ-8 unit, Jasco’s video-editing post-production team has greater product management capability and flexibility, helping to tighten the turnaround time on client projects.
“When I first joined Jasco, I was the only video editor,” said Andy Seifried, the company’s video production coordinator. “As business and client requests have grown, we’ve added multiple editors and reached the point where introducing a networked shared storage system was mission critical – working off portable storage drives was a short-term solution to a long-term need. Small Tree’s turnkey, scalable system has been a complete dream for our editing team.”
Established in 1975, Jasco develops cutting-edge consumer products for all distribution channels internationally. With a new state-of-the-art video production studio producing product information and instructional videos, as well as featuring three Mac Pro systems running Adobe Creative Suite, the company was searching for an affordable and robust storage solution that would grow along with it. Seifried and his team determined that Small Tree’s TitaniumZ-8 would not only meet Jasco’s immediate needs, but the system’s scalability would be an asset moving forward.
Small Tree’s TitaniumZ-8 offers storage capacities (raw) from 10TB to 1PB (Petabyte) and is designed and tested to provide maximum performance for real-time video-editing workflows. Like all of Small Tree’s popular shared storage systems, TitaniumZ-8 includes the ZenOS operating system, providing video editing teams with even better performance by capitalizing on Samba 4 with built in Avid Media sharing, multipath iSCSI support and lightning fast network performance.
In addition to exceptional performance, working with both Gb and 10Gb clients, TitaniumZ’s ease of setup and use make the appliance an attractive solution for industry professionals like Seifried.
“We received the boxes, plugged the drives in, made sure the hardware was working right with our systems and we were up and running,” Seifried stated. “On top of that, the personal attention Small Tree provided throughout the process should serve as the case study in optimal customer service.”
