Nyriad and DigitalGlue Announce Strategic Partnership

Nyriad® and DigitalGlue are partnering to dramatically improve the performance, resilience, and efficiency of media production workflows while removing complex IT-centric tasks and simplifying them with a streamlined user experience. In doing so, creatives and contributors will be able to optimize resources, eliminate costly delays in post-production, and deliver great content on deadline and on budget. 

Nyriad’s UltraIOTM data storage system uses the processing power of GPUs and advanced algorithms to deliver exceptional performance, resilience, and efficiency. DigitalGlue’s creative.space platform is purpose-built to make enterprise storage simple to use and manage without the need for specialized knowledge or a dedicated IT department. By combining the two solutions, creatives and contributors can deploy, manage and elastically scale their production workflows quickly, easily and affordably.

“DigitalGlue’s creative.space software coupled with Nyriad’s UltraIO storage system offers high performance, unbeatable data protection, and unmatched value at scale,” said Sean Busby, DigitalGlue’s President. “The solution eliminates the compromise between cost and quality while providing creative teams complete control over their valuable media.”

“The UltraIO and creative.space solutions solve the unique needs of creatives and contributors while satisfying the technical and operational challenges faced by traditional IT organizations,” said Derek Dicker, CEO, Nyriad. “Performance rivals flash-based systems, the efficiency and resiliency are equal to or better than the top-tier storage platforms on the market – and the ease with which users can manage multiple petabytes of data is extraordinary.” 

The joint Nyriad UltraIO and DigitalGlue creative.space solution delivers: 

  • Performance - With high read and write bandwidth capabilities, creative.space plus the UltraIO platform removes storage as a bottleneck so that artists can invest their creative energy in the quality of their content. Editing inline without the need to copy data between file systems or create lower resolution proxies can save many hours of wasted time and reduce the number of files to manage.

  • Resilience - The UltraIO system can withstand up to 20 drives failing simultaneously with no data loss while maintaining 95% of its maximum throughput, which allows teams to work unhindered. Combining this with the proactive support from creative.space and Nyriad, the solution provides customers with peace of mind that their data and workloads are protected while not compromising the performance required.

  • Efficiency - UltraIO storage allows customers to use up to 90% of the raw capacity deployed in the environment, a level of efficiency that is largely unmatched in the storage market today. Tools available in the creative.space software suite reduce operational and management overhead. While reducing the amount of raw capacity needed to purchase, UltraIO’s efficient platform also reduces the carbon footprint of storage by up to 70% compared to competitors’ platforms of similar performance and capacity.  

  • Simplicity and Ease of Deployment - The combination of creative.space and the UltraIO storage platform is simple and easy to manage, deploying seamlessly into customers’ environments without the need to refresh or replace existing technologies. The combined solution immediately begins to enable operational simplicity and flexibility, providing opportunities to consolidate and streamline many production tasks such as rendering, streaming, non-linear editing, content ingest, and active archive, among others, into a single, easy-to-use platform.
