New Brand Announcement

It is with great pride that we announce our exciting new brand and website—an effort that was months in the making, but well worth it. More so, along with our new look comes a collection of brand new products and solutions purpose-built specifically for the media and entertainment post-production industry.

But that’s not where this story ends—in fact, far from it. With the exponential growth that we have experienced this past year, we made the decision to separate out our Enterprise Support Services—a service area that has traditionally catered to an entirely different market.

NVMe. Because faster is always better.

As we quickly approach 2022 (yes, I said it—and yes, this year has flown by), there is one thing in all the constant madness of the past 18 months that hasn’t changed, and that’s the fact that production teams are still struggling with perpetual data growth.

The Brave New World of BI for File Storage and Management

The Brave New World of BI for File Storage and Management

The term BI is nothing new—it’s a decade-old throwback that hearkens to a simpler time, when people first discovered that the data created within business systems could be interpreted to make more informed business decisions. Now, as we round the end of the first half of 2021, what was once a nice-to-have is imperative to business success and as much a part of business as an ERP or CRM.

If you say new normal one more time so help me

If you say “new normal” one more time, so help me …

If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that marketing narratives drive us all up the proverbial wall. None is as horrible as the “new normal” phrase, thrown about with reckless abandon. Simply put, the concept of “new normal” is insulting. It means that, for reasons unbeknownst to all of us, we must now accept what 2020 and 2021 has done to our collective wellbeing, personal psyches, health, and global economy.

Don’t get left behind in the era of NVMe

Don’t get left behind in the era of NVMe

Doing what I do for a living, I have had the unique opportunity to peer under the hoods of a lot of companies across multiple industries. And whether it’s media and entertainment, sports, houses of worship or something else, the underlying theme never changes: data growth is affecting everyone.

How to give your organization a kick in the NAS

How to give your organization a kick in the NAS

All puns and cheesy social media article titles aside, network attached storage (NAS) is now a must-have for every serious, modern production company.

With overall data growing exponentially due to ever-increasing file sizes, the old-school approach of stacked-up hard drives and beefed-up workstations are no longer close to a viable solution.

More so, the result of ever-increasing data now collides with equally important business requirements—ensuring that seamless data access, data protection, and capacity and performance is a constant, never hampering productivity or profitability. So, it’s at this point you should be asking, “What can NAS do for me and my organization?”

Can backup be as easy as 3-2-1 Yes it can

Can backup be as easy as 3-2-1? Yes it can.

Your data is threatened on many fronts, so it is critical you implement preventive measures.

It might surprise you to know that the top cause of data loss is not from the malicious activities of cyber criminals, but from natural disasters. From fire and flooding to earthquakes, natural disasters pose an enormous risk to your data and IT infrastructure.

Special Report Whats Driving Change in Store

Special Report: What’s Driving Change in Store?

What are the drivers of change in Store from your perspective?

Whereas the cost of fiber infrastructure has become prohibitively expensive, we have the cost of 25 and 100Gbit ethernet and NVMe decreasing rapidly. We have applications supporting high performance workflows using ethernet changing how content is edited at high speed. We have AI and other data analytics driving automated workflows, which call for single global namespaces and data movement to cloud. We have remote personnel driving change on how content is edited and accessed in parts of the workflow, where previously it was done on-premise only.

Making the COVID-19 pennies count

Making the COVID-19 pennies count

During these difficult times, budgets are tight—and many companies have delayed purchasing or upgrading their systems. Scale Logic’s Enterprise Support Services (ESS) can help by saving you money and extending the life of your existing hardware. They can typically save you 50- 70% of your hardware support costs when compared to the original manufacturers.

Many of our customers buy the manufacturer’s warranty for the first three years of their equipment’s life, but then on Year 4 they get a shock when they receive their annual support renewal quote. Why is that you may ask?

Is there a brave new world hidden in remote video editing workflows

Is there a brave new world hidden in remote video editing workflows?

As 2020 marches on, the world anxiously looks ahead to the days where life gets back to normal. However, the greater question becomes: what is normal anymore?

As I’m sure you are very likely sitting at home reading this post, your work space—like millions of others—has shifted to the now-common non-office environment. And although the first several months were tough enough to get through—setting new work habits, along with the daily choice of pants or no pants—I’m sure you eventually adjusted as we all did.

But what happens going forward? Do we know? Does anyone even dare fathom a guess?

Why data protection is far more critical than you think

Why data protection is far more critical than you think

For all the IT terms and buzzwords that forever float in the ether, “data protection” is definitely among the most used. And, for most, the idea of protecting one’s data from harm is, of course, a good idea. After all, who wouldn’t want to protect their data, right?

But even with such a positive-sounding term, the question becomes, what exactly is data protection? Or more importantly, what does it entail?
