Facilis Deliver 48TB TerraBlock 24D Shared Storage System To Oslo Post Company

News Image
Facilis has announced the successful delivery and commissioning of a 48TB TerraBlock 24D shared storage system to Norwegian Film, TV and Commercial post house, Oslo Post Company.

For the Scandinavian creative post house, file access and organization are paramount to its daily operations. The creative team is tasked with delivering post production services for a large volume of films, commercials, reality television shows and documentaries. In order to get each project out the door in a timely fashion, the facility’s crew relies on an extensive arsenal of post production tools. Acting as a central pool from which employees can quickly save and share project files, TerraBlock has been a huge boon to collaboration and productivity within the company since it came on-stream.

The facility's owner, Theodor Kristensen, reports that very quickly after its commissioning, the TerraBlock shared storage has established a position at the heart of the facility and provides the life-beat for his team’s collaborative work. "There's a constant influx of work here," said Theodor Kristensen. "So many different editors and colorists are contributing to projects simultaneously, so it's critical that we keep everything catalogued in one place where our team can instantly access it. That's where TerraBlock comes in. There's no way we’d be able to do what we do without an important system like TerraBlock.”"

TerraBlock’s agnostic architecture empowers creative genius
TerraBlock’s application agnostic architecture has enabled the Oslo Post Company crew to employ the best tool they see fit for each job. Home to an eclectic mix of post production gear, the facility houses six Avid Media Composer suites for editorial and an Assimilate Scratch workstation for color grading, as well as Autodesk Flame and Flame Assist bays, workstations
with both The Foundry Nuke and Autodesk 3ds Max, a BlackMagic Design DaVinci Resolve suite, and other multi-use machines housing both Scratch and Adobe Creative Cloud. All of these systems are connected to TerraBlock via a combination of 1 and 10Gb Ethernet.
