Mikros Image, with two offices in Paris, is one of the best known creative and digital post-production visual effects studios in France. Mikros IT group could not handle the influx of new business. A solution from IBM and Exanet helped to improve its production capabilities.
Mikros Image was experiencing major difficulties in handling the high volume of business due to IT performance and capacity problems.
Mikros turned to a solution IBM and Exanet, an IBM Business Partner based in Israel. The software includes Exanet ExaStore, plus four IBM System x3650 servers and four IBM System Storage DS4700 units. Mikros Image uses Linux, UNIX, Irix and Mac operating systems.
Having ExaStore and IBM storage and servers increased Mikros Image's productivity immediately -- with overall throughput of the system increasing from 200MB/sec to 750MB/sec.
