Founded 24 years ago, T-Series has evolved into Indias top music label, representing more than 1,482 artists over the years including Indian music legends Jagjit Singh and Pankaj Udhas. The media and entertainment company also owns the rights to more than 35,000 audio titles, 2,000 video titles, 42 Hindi films and more. With such an immense amount of content, the T-Series post production department set out to digitize, organize and store its entire collection of audio and video assets last year, which required the implementation of a strong, shared storage infrastructure.

T-Series Head of IT Sachin Chauhan explained, We could no longer rely on digi-beta tapes and individual hard drives as our main source of storage. There was just not enough room in our facility to house all of the hard drives and tapes. It was clear that we needed a high-performance shared storage system and quickly.

He researched all of the available solutions on the market before ultimately opting to install two Facilis TerraBlock 24D 48TB shared storage systems and the Facilis Shared File System in T-Series post facility. With help from local reseller SRSG, T-Series had its creative workstations connected to the TerraBlocks via Fibre Channel in a short timeframe.
Since integrating the TerraBlock systems into its workflow, T-Series has experienced an increase in performance and productivity. We no longer have to waste time juggling digi-beta tapes and hard drives. All of our files are in one central location and easy to access, which has saved us a huge amount of time, said Chauhan. Were now able to turn around projects faster than ever before.

Operating seamlessly across all of T-Series non-linear editing systems, the TerraBlocks have also facilitated greater team collaboration. Chauhan shared, TerraBlock has given us a new-found flexibility. Our team is not only able to use the best tool for each job, but can also easily work with one another across projects.

Shared storage is vital to everything we do; the TerraBlocks continue to perform flawlessly and have become an integral part of our workflow. Theyre so intuitive and easy to manage that we never have to worry about them. I cant even imagine what wed do without them, he concluded.

Meeting the specification
Chris Smeeton

A good technical specification will detail precisely what is required, from the equipment to the cables connecting it. Many specifications will give  particular manufacturers and model numbers. On many occasions, this makes tendering simple and gives vendors a secure and fair way to bid.
