P2 Creates Unique Content
with Digistor and EditShare
P2 has more than trebled its storage capacity and upgraded its capacity to handle
multiple 4K resolution workflows with EditShare's XStream solution...

A

s creators of standout content,
Sydney-based agency P2 are
always looking for great new technology
to give their clients the best outcomes.
Recently the company decided to
upgrade their shared storage solution
and for that they turned to Digistor who
supplied and installed an EditShare
XStream EFS 300 Node 128TB and
multiple 8TB drives.
P2's Senior Art Director, Designer
and Partner Josh McEvoy explained:
"We had worked off a central server
for video and design work for five
years using a Smalltree 40TB NAS.
While it was a revelation at the
time having come from working off
individual workstations and having
to pass around the projects which
wasted a lot of time, the Smalltree
server was starting to show its age
with things beginning to get slow and
the ten workstations we run off it were
lagging.
"This was especially noticeable
working in 4K, which is the minimum
resolution our footage is now shot
in, with 8K it was unworkable. Seeing
the writing on the wall for our old
server we approached Olivier Jean
from Digistor as our long term
technology partner to recommend a
suitable solution for our needs. Olivier
recommended EditShare as the added
speed and reliability of their solutions
definitely fit with our best of breed
technology model."
Multiple 4K Streams
P2 required a system fast enough to
run ten workstations using 4K ProRes,
with the priority going to their five
edit suites. The five workstations used
for design also needed to be moved
from a one gigabyte to a ten gigabyte
connection due to the larger video file
sizes the company now deals with.
McEvoy continued: "Security was a
big consideration with the new server
as we were after granular control
over users, what they have access to
and how much speed they can utilise.
Also, coming from a server with 35TB
of usable space which our needs had
outgrown, we needed to account for
future use with large formats and

chassis to create larger combined
storage volumes. Thus as we grow,
the plan is to expand on our current
storage with more modules as
needed. The great support that
Digistor provides for EditShare and
the fact that it's widely used by large
companies and in education gives us
peace of mind that should any issues
arise a solution is only a call away."
