Case Study

Customer Requirements: Highly Scalable Video Retention in Minimal Floor Space

Deluxe Digital Cinema EMEA needed a smaller unit with higher storage capacity to archive films in its space-challenged building. Their existing Oracle/STK L700 was aging, support contract fees becoming increasingly expensive and Oracle’s future support plans for the L700 library were uncertain.

The Solution:

Deluxe Digital selected a Spectra Logic T950 tape library with LTO-5 drives to archive over 10TB of film footage processed every day. The Spectra T950, with a proven roadmap and industry-leading density, was supplied in disassembled form, which complemented Deluxe’s required library footprint space and eased
the installation process. It was more cost effective and offered three times the density of the L700, which freed floor space. Additionally, upgrading the L700
was more expensive than buying a new Spectra T950 with six LTO-5 drives. The T950 is used to archive film projects from 14 different countries across
Europe, and to access data from old LTO-3 tapes from the L700. The unit can expand over time and will lead to future business as Deluxe Digital London
creates and ultimately must archive more video material.
