M for Media finds ideal solution with GB Labs


M for Media is an Abu Dhabi-based media production company that creates TV shows for the GCC and MENA regions. It decided to invest in a GB Labs FastNAS F-16 Nitro storage system, which was installed and supplied by GB Labs’ partner, MediaCast.

‘I heard about GB Labs from the creator of MIMIQ for Avid systems, who forwarded me some information that he thought would interest me,’ said Andre Aouad from M for Media. ‘At the time, we had no existing storage and it was becoming a problem because of the volume of work we were taking in. You can’t keep running back and forth with arms full of hard disks. It’s unproductive and it was beginning to show. However, GB Labs soon came up with the ideal solution.’

Dominic Harland, GB Labs CEO and CTO, added: ‘Ultimately, the engine of the newly 25GbE-enabled FastNAS is our powerful CORE.4 OS, an ultra-high-performance operating system that serves media files with intelligence layers that deliver high stability and unparalleled quality of service. We are delighted to have been referred to M for Media by acknowledged experts, which is further evidence of our growing reputation for excellence.’

The FastNAS F-16 can be accessed by up to 10 users of Avid Media Composer and can be reportedly done simultaneously if needed. ‘Recognising that we needed to make a change, we had made numerous enquiries for recommendations for a shared storage system and felt that GB Labs offered the best value and highest performance ratio versus any other solution on the market,’ Aouad commented. ‘Once we had taken the decision, we were up and running with FastNAS very quickly and the benefits we expected were almost instantly felt. We have had a very positive experience with FastNAS and are already looking forward to working with GB Labs on future projects.’
