One Machine for Video Production, Post Production, Visual Effects & Streaming Data Storage!
Our customers are video editors and post-production professionals who need to store data.
They work for organizations all over the world and range from one-person companies to some of the largest companies in the world.
Experience with servers is not necessary! The Storinator storage server is very easy to set up - in fact, we do it for you! Let's face it, we are all busy people with different skill sets - maybe you don't have time to learn how to set up a storage server and install the operating system like some companies will require you to do.
During your initial set-up - sit back, relax, answer a few questions and let us do the rest!
"Stick to making those kick-ass videos and let us pre-configure your Storinator for you! We set it up and send it to you - your system will arrive at your doorstep, properly configured, fully-functional and ready to use. "
Read how nomadic filmmaker Sam Kolder uses the Storinator and Seagate hard drives in his workflow.
"45 drives is the ultimate storage solution for professional travel filmmakers, we are able to safely store all of our content on one platform, organize huge amounts of files at once, and send files remotely to ourselves as we need them! I can't imagine working without it or traveling with 20 hard drives again! "Read the Case Study (pdf)
The Storinator is so fast you can edit directly from the machine, it can also provide high-speed access to your media library through a centralized location which is accessible to multiple users.
What's that mean? It means there's no need to search through mounds of external hard drives to find that perfect b-roll footage - all of this data is searchable from each users computer. After your files are imported from your library to your favorite editing software, you can experience editing at speeds faster than an internal SSD!
Based on the large number of video editing customers using our Storinator Q30 Enhanced we recommend the configuration below.
The Q in Q30 stands for quiet because this server offers a huge amount of storage that's whisper-quiet and ultra-efficient - making it perfect for any production studio or office environment. The Q30 offers up to 360TB of storage and comes with a twin 10Gbe Ethernet port.
We are an open-source company - meaning we can put any OS on your server. But we recommend FreeNAS to all our post-production customers because when you connect to your PC it shows up as a single drive.
As noted above we are open-source therefore we can put any OS on your machine including: CentOS, debian, FreeBSD, Rockstor, Windows, unRAID and of course FreeNAS.
If you are editing in a Windows environment, it's as easy as searching for media inside the file explorer when importing. Likewise, it's just as easy to find media using the finder feature inside a Mac environment.
Nothing! Start using your new storage solution.
The only thing you need to know is that FreeNAS is configured with an error email system, so you only have to worry about problems if you receive one. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that if a problem does occur, the error email system will indicate the issue for you.
We have your back! If you ever have a problem, you can reach out to us through our website, online chat, email or give us a call - It's just that easy! We take care of the necessary headaches so you can concentrate on what you do best in the video production world.
