Cluster Studio adds FLUX Store from FilmLight

Cluster Studio — which has served the postproduction market in Latin America for almost a decade — recently added FLUX Store, the new postproduction storage system from FilmLight, to help with increased demand on high-resolution projects.

Cluster Studio has a workflow that requires large amounts of data, and the capabilities of the company’s incumbent NAS system fell short. The team needed a larger, faster storage system capable of dealing with its growing data demands.

FLUX Store can store and manage the huge amounts of content generated by today’s digital workflows. Capable of streaming 2K and 4K content into Baselight systems over dual-link 10 gigabit Ethernet, it includes user-expandable storage up to 80TB with integral data management.

“We are familiar with the capabilities of the FLUX storage solution through our sister company in Mexico, Color Space, which already has two Baselight systems,” said Armando Ricalde, director of technology, Cluster Studio.

The large capacity of the FLUX solution combined with its high-bandwidth transfer constant rate means Cluster Studio can now use multiple workstations at one time, which results in more iterations and more time to work for clients.

“Having a diagnostic suite and a set of specialized tools also means we can better maintain a smooth and efficient production,” Ricalde said. “This enables us to focus our developing efforts on more proprietary pipeline tools for the artists. And, happy artists and less frustrated IT department means more beautiful imagery in motion and compelling stories.”

The open connectivity of the FLUX Store means any client can be connected without the need for additional interface cards or client licenses. This has allowed Cluster Studio to maximize its resources by deploying FLUX Store throughout its current network infrastructure.
