Toonz Animation relies on EMC Isilon to increase the pace of production

Toonz Animation, one of India’s most successful animation houses along with clients such as Walt Disney, Turner and BBC, has deployed EMC Isilon scale-out storage to meet the demand of a scalable storage solution and increase the speed of production. This will enable Toonz to complete multiple projects quickly in an efficient manner and also reduced its energy requirements by 25% percent, decreasing the company’s overhead for power and cooling. Training and guidance from EMC Global Services has resulted in the need for a lean IT team of two-persons to manage the environment independently. Toonz Animation was running a storage solution which led to the IT team spending a lot of time managing network performance and consolidation issues. EMC Isilon is the ideal platform to store, manage and protect unstructured data which has enabled Toonz to achieve fast turnaround times and thereby enabled them to engage with multiple studios and work on simultaneous projects. They have experienced vast improvement over the previous storage environment when their team spent hours connecting various SANs. Toonz’s IT workload has tremendously decreased due to the reduction in hours spent dealing with network issues caused by rendering and compositing bottlenecks. EMC Storage consolidation is another area where Toonz has experienced massive gains. Instead of housing multiple disk arrays, the Isilon S200 scale-out architecture provides the required capacity within a single file system on a few nodes. Toonz Animation, IT Head, K.R Asokan said, “The throughput performance of Isilon S200 has a direct impact on the business. We can engage with multiple studios and work on simultaneous projects because we know we can achieve fast turnaround times. Toonz reputation of combining creativity and technology has received a significant impetus with this implementation. The company continues to be a leader in animation in India and is making a real impact in production and distribution of animation and live-action content, gaming content, licensing and merchandising.” Further, the partnership approach to installation and configuration of EMC Global Services has empowered Toonz’s IT team with the knowledge and insight needed to manage its storage environment effectively and independently. With the Isilon S200, compositors are now able to work on multiple 2K or HD timelines simultaneously, benefiting from more than 1.4 million network file system ops and over 85 gigabytes per second aggregate throughput from a single file system cluster.
