Lower Data Volume

"With Cohesity, we’re getting 2x reduction a week on the terabytes of data per episode that our studio produces. That’s unheard of in the media and entertainment industry because our data is very difficult to compress."

Robert Crowther, IT Manager, Atomic Cartoons

At a Glance

Atomic Cartoons deployed Cohesity for faster, more reliable backups. Cohesity has sped large project backups from months to hours, delivered 2x data reduction, and given IT staff back three hours a week of productivity.

Challenge

Animated projects are data-intensive and require IT to manage about 3 PBs of data. Before moving to Cohesity, the company relied on snapshots of its primary Isilon system and archiving to tape as its only backups for 2D and 3D creative as well as IT projects.

Solution

Any creative project or IT work done on the network—for the Vancouver, Ottawa and Los Angeles studios—is automatically protected by Cohesity. The web-scale platform performs a nightly backup with incrementals to capture only day-to-day changes and exclude others based on IT-established policies.

Result

While the industry-expected data reduction ratio for an animated production workload is approximately 1.3x, Atomic has realized 2x reduction with the amount of data it creates per day. All-in, Cohesity has helped lower data management TCO by about 20 percent.
