The Mission-Critical Nature of Data Protection

Whether it be the ability to quickly and easily access files, archive data for future use, or to periodically re-use assets to accelerate new projects—properly protecting your data is imperative to your success.

Intelligent Collaboration

Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve workflows offer speed and project collaboration benefits to their users.

Scale Logic NAS is a high-performance shared storage that can handle multi-user performance and project collaboration just like DaVinci Resolve handles formats of any resolution.
Powerful search, tag and index features included with Scale Logic’s Media Browser seamlessly integrate with DaVinci Resolve. Export metadata right to your DaVinci Resolve project. Additional transcoding and data movement tools simplify data ingest and archive to LTO, additional disk, or to cloud storage. Using Scale Logic shared storage reduces storage administrative tasks for your creative team. At the heart of any Scale Logic shared storage is data resiliency. DaVinci Resolve teams benefit from unlimited snapshots that allow editors to retrieve deleted files or recover quickly from human mistakes; and administrators can create disaster recovery and business continuity plans to recover from virus or ransomware attacks in a snap.

Comprehensive DaVinci Resolve Collaboration Workflow Support

With Scale Logic’s long history and in-depth knowledge of DaVinci Resolve workflows, it seamlessly supports everything within the environment, including the ability to fuel color grading along with VFX, and online/offline edit suites running other applications like Adobe® Premiere®, Avid®, or Final Cut Pro® X.

This includes secure project sharing for DaVinci Resolve onsite or offsite. Scale Logic’s Remote Access Portal (RAP) Server extends DaVinci Resolve workflows outside the confines of a building and securely reaches any remote team member worldwide.

Browse Your Media,
Any Way You’d Like

Accessing your files in a familiar way is highly important—after all, when immersed in a project, the last thing you need is to learn yet another tool or interface.

Our Media Browser (MAM-Lite) Solution looks and feels like a simple non-linear editor (NLE). If you have used FCP X, Adobe Productions, Avid® Media Composer®, or DaVinci Resolve, our Media Browser is intuitive with no learning curve. It’s very easy to pick up and master.

The Server You Need, When You Need It

Scale Logic offers a comprehensive suite of purpose-built shared storage solutions to perfectly fit any size organization.

Whether your team is in a live production environment, works remotely, or resides within a large studio—whatever the need, Scale Logic has you covered.

Flash/NVMe Acceleration

Used as an add-on to any Scale Logic system for medium or large workgroups to provide any and all of the following: Adobe Projects file, thumbnail, and waveform cache acceleration. File System Metadata Acceleration. Read ahead streaming cache to allow higher stream counts. Adaptive Read Cache that keeps more active project data in the cache. Dedicated flash based file system(s). Flash/NVMe cache size can start at 11.52TB and scales to 92TB.

Medium or Large

It is very common for DaVinci Resolve teams to require high-availability when project deadlines are tight and the loss of access to the storage for more than 15 minutes could be a disaster for your team. 

High-availability Scale Logic ZX storage provides less than a one-minute server node failover and uses Virtual IP technology to ensure your team stays connected should there be a failure in the server room. Capacity starts at 96TB and can grow to 9PB.

Medium

Workgroups from 5 to 25 can choose 24 or 36 bay models starting at 96TB to 5PB storage capacity and 4000MB/sec to 8000MB/sec streaming performance respectively. This also can be expanded in place with both storage and performance as needed with up to a 2PB single global namespace.

Small

Workgroups from 2 to 10 editors and creatives may start on NX2 12 Bay, reaching speeds over 2000MB/sec for multi-streaming real-time performance with the ability to scale in place with a single file system up to 4 additional JBOD storage enclosures—adding storage capacity and performance.

Archive and Data Movement

Whether you are a small, medium or large team, adding archive and data movement software onto any Scale Logic storage solution allows you to archive old projects to LTO, spinning disk, or public/private S3-compliant cloud storage or LTO tape of your choice.
