PixStor Storage Ensures Jellyfish Pictures Meets A-List Security Requirements For Blockbuster Projects

14/11/2019

New PixStor secure multi-tenancy capabilities allow leading VFX and animation house to meet exacting security standards whilst delivering collaborative workflows.

Pixit Media, pioneer of software-defined storage and data-management solutions for Media and Entertainment, is delighted to announce that BAFTA and Emmy award-winning VFX and animation house Jellyfish Pictures is leveraging the power of PixStor's new secure container services to meet the highest security accreditation standards, whilst supporting collaborative workflows across its multiple sites.

Established in 2001, Jellyfish's combination of creativity, technological prowess, and reputation for security has established it as a major player in the international VFX and animation industry. Attracting A List clients and with recent blockbuster titles across film and TV including Star Wars, The Innocents, Black Mirror and many more on its slate, it has already worked extensively with the Trusted Partner Network (TPN) to ensure that all its sites are security compliant and certified to protect its clients high-value assets.

A long-term Pixit Media client, Jellyfish relies on PixStor software-defined scalable infrastructure as its central storage platform to unify users, applications and data into a single environment and enable collaboration with guaranteed sustained high-performance - on-premise, across multiple sites and into the Cloud. With content security an increasingly pressing concern and non-negotiable requirement amongst clients such as Netflix and HBO, Jellyfish is now benefiting from PixStor's new secure multi-tenancy capabilities to isolate client materials in a TPN-compliant manner within the PixStor environment.

The latest version of PixStor, launched in April, unlocks true multi-tenancy within a single storage namespace. It enables creative studios to rapidly deploy logical TPN-accredited data separation and isolation, to scale services up or down as required without the spiraling costs and productivity hits associated with operating separate dedicated infrastructure stacks for different clients.

PixStor lets us containerize different projects, create secure virtual environments and set granular rules for each with virtually no overheadinto the stack and no architectural bottlenecks, comments Jeremy Smith, CTO Jellyfish Pictures. The performance offered is identical to the native file systemon the PixStor server, offering high-availability and the ability to fine-tune our performance and storage requirements. With PixStor, we can now avoid the high management and cost burden of running separate infrastructure stacks for each client. It means that we can control our costs and be more flexible and responsive.

Meeting security audit requirements is an increasingly vital task for the production and broadcast communities at all levels, comments Pixit Media co-founder and CEO, Ben Leaver. We have worked closely with leading players in the market, such as Jellyfish and Red Bee Media, to develop a storage solution that is compliant with evolving industry standards. With PixStor, we have a single solution that lets our clients drive secure and collaborative workflows, to grow their business and take on increasingly ambitious creative projects with confidence.
