Rapid Growth and Collaboration Needs Marketing Agency Leverages Multitier Storage for Greater Business Agility and Content Management
Hogarth Worldwide has enhanced its StorNext-powered storage environment with an Xcellis workflow storage system, including QXS high-performance disk. Providing independent performance and capacity scaling — as well as low-cost, long-term content preservation — the end-to-end storage solution has enabled Hogarth to maintain a highly efficient and collaborative production operation as its business continues to grow around the world.
Working closely with ad departments in major corporations and with creative agencies, Hogarth produces advertising and other marketing communications content across all media and all languages. The agency relies on StorNext to support efficient delivery of high-quality services including broadcast, print and digital production, postproduction, CGI and language localization.
The new Xcellis system not only allows the agency to scale performance and capacity independently but also supports use of network-attached storage (NAS) as part of the storage pool. The actual transition to Xcellis took just a couple of hours, with no impact on the work or experience of Hogarth’s production teams.
