SNS to Offer EMC CLARiiON Systems and Software to the Media and Entertainment Enterprise

Relationship Offers Cross-Platform Networked Storage Solutions

Studio Network Solutions (SNS) today announced it will offer leading networked storage technology from EMC Corporation to provide a best-of-breed, storage area network solution for the Media and Entertainment industry. The new relationship will address the digital storage needs of broadcasters, video and audio post production enterprises, and graphics-intense environments like publishing and 3D animation using the industry leading EMC® CLARiiON™ family of networked storage systems and software.

“Our Macintosh customers have some of the most demanding information storage requirements,” said Gary Holladay, President of SNS. “By working closely with EMC and offering a full range of EMC CLARiiON networked solutions, we’re able to provide customers with the industry’s best systems and software for managing, sharing and protecting their information.”

B.J. Jenkins, EMC’s Vice President, Telecommunications, Media and Entertainment, added, “By combining the unique capabilities of SNS with the broad range of EMC CLARiiON networked storage systems, software and services, our mutual customers can be assured that they will have the most enhanced workflow and archival solutions available for their Macintosh and PC-based environments.”

SNS is a pioneer of applied shared storage networking for professional digital artistry. Its solutions are in use by many of the largest and most respected Media and Entertainment companies throughout the world. SNS was the first to develop a multi-platform Fibre Channel SAN capable of supporting a variety of professional audio and video applications.

EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage and management, provides industry-leading networked storage systems, information management software, and services expertise. Together, SNS and EMC are able to offer the most extensive, reliable and highest performance solutions with scalable storage and service offerings from small workgroups to the largest enterprise needs.

Customer need is frequently driven by the storage-intensive nature of many of the applications typically run on Macintosh clients, including video production, digital non-linear editing, audio production, and graphic arts prepress and publishing, to name a few. Today, the Mac-based solution is direct attached in most instances, causing a major headache for operational efficiency and for CIO’s who demand standards in the digital storage domain. A shared Mac/PC SAN environment helps enable the consolidation of IT policies and procedures, thus improving business efficiency and continuity.
