Understanding workflows

Reduces Project Risk and Increases Access to Information

We understand that to build quality storage solutions that meet vertical market applications, you must first understand customer workflow and then mirror it internally before deployment. Since day one, Scale Logic has invested in industry-specific applications and storage and network infrastructures to create a fully functioning media-centric Interoperability Lab.

Where the magic happens


To support our modular approach, we analyze and test all parts of the process with roadmaps and feature enhancements. This process delivers valuable data to our OEM partners and software engineers that influence and improve future releases of our complete line of products and services.

Our Interoperability Lab is multifunctional, enabling our development team, ISP, and OEM Channel Partners to access it for Proof of Concept (POC), benchmarking, development, and testing.

Our capabilities include:

  • Installation and Testing – Networking and switches with all connections: 16/32 Gb/s Fibre channel, 1/10/25/40/100 GigE, and iSCSI
  • Drive Testing – Seagate and WD HDD, SSD and SAS
  • Workflow Solution Testing – SAN, Scale-Out NAS, NAS and Archive
  • Installation and Testing – Over 50 M&E applications by Avid, Apple, Adobe, Telestream, Blackmagic Design, AJA, Levels Beyond, Marquis, and many others
  • Capacities over a petabyte of working storage and JBODs

Benchmarking


Once development meets the required performance, benchmarking takes place. Our internal testing processes guarantee we meet application-specific requirements when we deploy the solutions.

Interoperability


Performance is just the beginning of vetting solutions for complicated workflows. Interoperability testing allows our team to feel comfortable that converged solutions are integrated based on strict guidelines, including OS versioning, drivers, connectivity, servers, workstations, and applications.

Proof of Concept


Our internal team and customers utilize our Interoperability Lab to do their own POC testing. In the M&E industry, few workflows are the same; therefore, giving customers access to our Lab enables them to try several types of technology to ensure confidence in their investment.

Support


Our team has over 30 years of experience deploying solutions to the M&E industry. We fully understand what works in the Lab may not completely translate into integration, but with the ability to replicate customer issues in-house versus at their facility—we can arrive at a resolution much faster, limiting downtime and the impact on the business.
