The smarter way to manage shared edit storage

RUNNING OUT OF SHARED STORAGE CAPCITY?

RISKING LOSS OF MEDIA?

PROJECT PARKING offers an intuitive toolset to analyse and manage media to optimise shared storage utilisation.

In one single application Project Parking analyses all Avid projects and media to identify which projects are using up most space and take appropriate action to transfer, archive or delete.

Project Parking allows the analysis of all Avid projects and workspaces on shared edit storage by size, age and location. Projects can be copied to any storage device, taken offsite to re-edit and then later merged back on-line.

With the ever increasing demands to use more media there is a growing need for organisations to optimise shared storage resources.

Recent research by Marquis has shown that broadcasters are typically wasting up to 20% of their shared storage capacities due to duplicate files or orphaned media.

Marquis’ Project Parking provides an Avid project/workspace aware toolset to analyse and manage and optimise Avid shared storage and other storage platforms in order that Data Managers can carry out the tasks listed on the left.

Project Parking provides a high visibility of Avid projects and workspaces independent to Avid facilitating informed decisions on when to archive or transfer projects off high cost storage assets to more cost effective storage systems i.e. near line, short-term backups or long-term archives.

Marquis’ Project Parking speeds up both the daily and weekly shared storage administration processes enabling personnel to focus on other critical or revenue making tasks.
