La Grange Post Chooses JMR SHARE Networked Storage Server as Central Storage Hub for Facility


JMR Electronics, Inc. a leading provider of scalable storage solutions, announced today that southern California based La Grange Post had chosen the company’s BlueStorTM SHARE Networked Storage Server as their central storage hub, in addition to adding JBOD expansion for 200TB capacity to power future growth.

La Grange Post, which opened its doors in 2008, provides content companies and producers with a variety of services ranging from digital conversions and deliveries, to video/audio editing and color correction, to audio/video restoration, foreign tracks conforming and film-to-video transfers. The facility and its customer centric staff, with experience in broadcast, theatrical, corporate AV and web-based programming, also features 4K off-line and on-line editing bays, complete camera and light packages, graphic development, original music composers and state-of-the-art sound facilities.

JMR’s BlueStor SHARE with 10GbE fiber I/O connections, powered by euroNAS OS, acts as the central drive and repository for all La Grange’s edit bays, which uses Mac and AVID software platforms. According to facility owner Ayal Nitzan, “We spent a great deal of time searching for assets across multiple drives and were not able to see everything in one location or GUI window prior to integrating the JMR SHARE NAS storage system. Our system requirements included a future-proof system that would be able to handle the read/write requirements of up to 4K workflows from multiple edit bays, have a very high degree of reliability, comprehensive functionality, excellent client support and at a reasonable price.”

La Grange did significant due diligence before deciding on JMR. Added Nitzan, “Aside from the high degree of expected performance and reliability, we wanted a system that could handle high-load shared storage applications and having a software license that doesn’t charge us for additional storage capacity. We looked at LaCie, OWC, Synology, HGST and ExaGrid before deciding on JMR and their BlueStor SHARE system. The JMR system is advanced, rock solid and reliable; their support personnel are extremely knowledgeable, and customer focused; and the system has proven to be simple-to-install-and-use. Bottom line – a win-win for our clients due to the significant improvement in workflow efficiency and great ROI for us.”

The affordably priced BlueStor SHARE Networked Storage Server is ideal for file serving, load-balancing shared storage, fault-tolerant email/web server/streaming media, digital A/V (Audio/Video) workflow storage, HA cluster and back up storage applications. By combining SAS RAID and file server functionality into a single unit, SHARE delivers simple, reliable, high performance storage for converged networks, enabling users to expand applications to the cloud, or to virtualized and clustered environments. Priced at up to five times less than other enterprise-class offerings, it’s available up to 160TB data capacities and can scale beyond 1 PB with a single head unit. The software license provided from the start allows unlimited storage capacity without need for license upgrades and comes with a 3-year labor and parts warranty.
