The Secret Life of Pets, Minions, and Animation IT

Cover

Beyond the secret lives of pets and the villainous plots of Gru, few people would know that Illumination Mac Guff—responsible for making animated films like Despicable Me, The Lorax, and Sing—struggled to keep up with archive capacity requirements.

The second a project is over, the assets need to become an always available reference library—all the more challenging when Illumination has more than doubled its per-film global active data and I/O requirements.

Read this study to discover how implementing object storage afforded Illumination a more economical long-term active archiving solution for their two-petabytes-and-growing environment, versus their previous second-tier, super-dense NAS.
