University Post-Production Departments Turn to TerraBlock

Leading Schools Realize the Value of Facilis Technology`s Shared Storage Network (March 08, 2010)
DMN Newswire--2010-3-8--Facilis Technology, a leader in shared media storage technology for post-production and content creation, has announced further expansion within the academic market. More educational facilities use the TerraBlock shared storage network for ease of use, performance and expandability. 

New academic clients include: St. Claire College, Ontario; Nihon University, Tokyo; and Regent University, Virginia. These respected institutions join a comprehensive list of colleges and universities already enjoying the benefits of TerraBlock, including: University of Alabama, Auburn University, Oklahoma State, School of Visual Arts, University of Tennessee, Yale University and many more. 

"Moving data around to cater to the production schedule was becoming a hassle," said David Baughn, Director of Engineering at University of Alabama's Center for Public Television. "We were looking for a shared storage system that's easy to use, has the performance we need, and allows us to use whatever client software and platform we like. After a long process of evaluating every solution available to us, we determined the TerraBlock was the right product."
