IBC 2017: Scale Logic’s Interoperability Lab qualifies Adobe Creative Cloud with Genesis Platform, enterprise solutions from NetApp, HPE, and Hitachi
In order to understand customer workflow and mirror it internally prior to deployment, Scale Logic has invested over $1M in industry-specific applications and network infrastructure to create a fully-functioning, media-centric interoperability lab. The multi-functional lab will enable creative professionals the ability to create and test across different technologies.
“In the Media & Entertainment (M&E) industry, very few workflows are the same, so allowing customers access to the lab allows them to try several types of technology to ensure confidence in their investment. Our customers will be able to collaborate at unprecedented levels and the ability to mix and match tools to fit their workflow needs and budgets,” says Daryl Heinis, CTO, Scale Logic.
Interoperability testing ensures that converged solutions are integrated based on strict guidelines including OS versioning, drivers, connectivity, servers, workstations, and applications. The lab integrates over 75 M&E workflow and editing applications such as Adobe’s Premiere, Telestream’s Vantage, Levels Beyond’s Reach Engine and others, and utilizes various storage platforms: Block Level SAN, Scale-Out NAS, SAN appliances, NAS, and Archive.
Heinis comments, “One of the lab’s most valuable features is the 24×7 access it allows for M&E partners, editors, and end-users around the world to test the differences in SAN, NAS, Scale-Out NAS and other associated technologies which has allowed for a more educated decision for our customers and partners.”
