At DreamWorks, digital storage and data management are critical to the production workflow. Billions of files and petabytes of data must be efficiently managed and accessed across on premises, private, and public cloud for the studio to be able to pivot its hybrid cloud strategy and meet changing business demands.
With an average of 50,000 jobs rendered daily during production, performance is everything for DreamWorks. NetApp® AFF A-Series all-flash arrays are smart, powerful, and trusted solutions that take advantage of modern cloud technologies to deliver the speed, efficiency, and security that high-performance workloads require.
DreamWorks leverages NetApp® SnapMirror® as a replication tool to achieve high data availability and fast data replication.
DreamWorks must adapt to changing business demands as needed by scaling capacity up or down, on demand, and without disruption or downtime. NetApp® SolidFire® all-flash storage enables dynamic scaling, predictable performance, automated simplicity, and flexible deployment.
