DigitalGlue’s Creative.Space, an on-premise managed storage (OPMS) service, has been optimized for Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve workflows, meeting the technical requirements for inclusion in Blackmagic’s Configuration Guide. DigitalGlue is an equipment, integration and software development provider, that also designs and implements solutions for complete turnkey content creation, post production and distribution.
According to DigitalGlue CEO/CTO Tim Anderson, each Creative.Space system is pre-loaded with a Resolve optimized PostreSQL database server enabling users to simply create databases in Resolve using the same address they use to connect to their storage. In addition, users can schedule database backups with snapshots, ensuring that work is preserved timely and securely. Creative.Space also uses media intelligent caching to move project data and assets into a “fast lane” allowing all collaborators to experience seamless performance.
“We brought a Creative.Space entry-level Auteur unit optimized with a DaVinci Resolve database to the Blackmagic training facility in Burbank,” explains Nick Anderson, Creative.Space product manager. “The Auteur was put through a series of rigorous testing processes and passed each with flying colors. Our Media Intelligent caching allowed the unit to provide full performance to 12 systems at a level that would normally require a much larger and more expensive system.”
Auteur was the first service in the Creative.Space platform to launch. Creative.Space targets collaborative workflows by optimizing the latest hardware and software for efficiency and increased productivity. Auteur starts at 120TB RAW capacity across 12 drives in a 24-bay 4RU chassis with open bays for rapid growth. Every system is custom-built to address each client’s unique needs. Entry level systems are designed for small to medium workgroups using compressed 4K, 6K and 8K workflows and can scale for 4K uncompressed workflows (including 4K OpenEXR) and large multi-user environments.
