South Africa’s Jock Animation uses Sledgehammer NAS on feature film

Jock Animation in Johannesburg, South Africa, is using Maximum Throughput’s Sledgehammer NAS (network attached storage) system to support its work on a full-length animated feature film currently in production.

To handle the animation’s production at the resolution and frame rate of 1080/50p, Jock’s facility currently relies on a 120-processor PC render farm, 15 Autodesk Maya seats and two visual effects compositing suites connected via GigE network. Jock anticipates expanding its facility to 25 Maya seats and a 280-processor render farm.

The Sledgehammer NAS intelligently manages the available bandwidth of Jock’s network. The NAS was specifically designed to support access to heavy data loads by multiple clients on a network and to handle network-heavy operations without performance degradation.
