Video Editing Storage Challenges


Whether 4K or 8K, video production creates massive amounts of data.


Editing and rendering requires extreme data transfer rates.


Remote production teams are becoming increasingly common. Making production data available to remote teams is difficult.

How Qumulo Powers Video Editing

On-Premises Video Production

  • Flexible enterprise-class storage integrates with existing network and video editing applications.
  • Powerful all-NVMe hardware platforms deliver high performance for HD, 4K, and 8K workflows on-prem and in the cloud.
  • Start small and grow to exabyte scale as needed.
  • Get ahead of anomalies with real-time analytics.


Storage lies at the heart of VFX. With 8K DCI 60fps, a single second of VFX requires nearly 3 GB of storage! VFX studios need the ability to scale to very high capacities.

And, because shot production reviews must happen daily, viewing in real-time is critical to deliver on time, in budget and at the quality required.  VFX storage must also be fast. 

 And finally, there is the issue of where you store your rendered footage. On-premises? In the cloud? Remotely where much of your staff now works? For most studios, the answer is all three.

Qumulo’s Scale Anywhere™ can help. We deliver a fast, reliable, and scalable solution that meets the needs of demanding VFX. Our platform supports on-premise and cloud storage. And we work with the apps you depend on, like Blender, Nuke, and Houdini.

Qumulo’s Flash First Hybrid architecture provides the performance needed for artists and render farms, while providing a cost-effective option for VFX. And, unlike other storage platforms, Qumulo allows customers to use 100% of their usable storage capacity.

Qumulo’s real-time analytics allows VFX Supervisors to optimize creative workflows, and also allows System Administrators to identify potential issues before they impact production. Finally, Qumulo’s API-first mentality means pipeline teams can automate processes, saving time and money.
