– Broadcast Rent
, one of Spain’s leading post production and editing companies, had experienced numerous problems when trying to connect with its customers and was searching for a solution to help simplify and control the sharing of large files in rich media environments. The project files Broadcast Rent works with are very large, therefore they did not want to use an external cloud solution because they could not work over the internet with such big files. Plus, the company felt as if they had little control over their content once it was stored in a public cloud. Broadcast Rent needed a private cloud solution that could be deployed on premise to not only store videos but the company also required an effective user management portal to help them work with their customers more efficiently. PROMISE Technology
emerged as the solution.
FileCruiser is an Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) solution that allows businesses to build their own secure, scalable private cloud storage service. With FileCruiser, Broadcast Rent has their own storage system where customers can upload files directly to the company without going through any external service. In addition, FileCruiser’s complete user management portal enables Broadcast Rent to assign specific permissions to not only provide access to a folder, but also to set whether users can view the content, change, upload or download files, delete files and more.
“FileCruiser facilitates the connection between us and our customers. It enables us to provide our customers with an easy way to send and receive files that is as simple as connecting to a web portal,” said Javier Sanchez de Toro, CEO and technical director, Broadcast Rent. “Once connected, customers can send the files needed for the development of a project and once the project is finished we can use it to share the final results. It’s like creating a small cloud between us and each of our clients which is amazing because our work continually requires the internet to share files in both directions. In this scenario, it is important to control all file transfers and give our customers an easy to way to download and upload content.”
PROMISE Technology has over 25 years of experience in the storage industry and is one of the leading providers of storage solutions for the rich media industry. The PROMISE VTrak
fibre channel storage system is trusted by many of the world’s largest media corporations, post production companies and broadcasters, including Broadcast Rent. FileCruiser helps address new challenges prevalent in the media and entertainment industry today, such as the use of internet in workflows.
“Media environments today, like the one at Broadcast Rent, have new needs and one of the most important is the use of the internet in our workflows,’ said Sanchez de Toro. “We needed an easy way to connect with customers to share and post large files from their projects. FileCruiser fits perfectly in a very simple way. Plus, the combined PROMISE VTrak and FileCruiser solution covers all of our storage needs and gives us security, stability and the ability to grow.”
“PROMISE’s foundation was built as a storage component and system designer and manufacturer, but FileCruiser is an excellent example of how the company is transitioning to a leading developer of storage solutions that meet the needs of the world’s most advanced businesses and organizations,” said John van den Elzen, Managing Director, PROMISE Technology EMEA. “With FileCruiser, Broadcast Rent can take advantage of the benefits provided by the cloud, including simple file-sharing and mobile access, but the company remains in control as they can manage the entire system, including hardware and software configurations.”
