We know that our customers can buy all the storage they need, so we have focused on joining forces with industry leaders in access control, project parking, caching and metadata extraction to offer packages that meet your needs.

Tool & Workflow Requirements
If your storage doesn’t seamlessly integrate with your production tools, it’s going to cause major workflow disruptions and slow down your whole process.
The privacy of your content is mission critical, so security requirements cannot be skipped in the name of pure performance.
Sure, you could build your own on-premise storage solution in house, but that entails considerable ongoing system costs and overhead (CAPEX, people, power/cooling, etc.) that you may not want to invest in.
So the cloud is the way to go, but not all cloud storage is created equal. Standard cloud storage vendors may not meet customer requirements when it comes to workflow compatibility, industry-mandated security, and supporting low-latency applications. Plus, you may be subject to considerably expensive egress and ingress charge when using cloud services that may make you question why you ever took your storage solution off-premise in the first place.
Sohonet FileStore offers high-performance, reliable and secure private cloud storage that’s optimized for Media & Entertainment work. With robust integration capabilities to third party services, it’s particularly well-suited for project parking, backup and archiving-off premises, with the ability to burst your maximum storage capacity as needed.
In looking for the ideal way to bring private cloud storage to our customers, we have evolved from a bare bones per terabyte pricing model to a platform that is designed around specific customer problems, from archiving and disaster recovery to project parking and advanced intelligent workspaces. And of course, FileStore wouldn’t be a Sohonet product if it didn’t allow you to add storage to your package for short or long-term projects.
At its core, FileStore is seamlessly integrated within our Media Network and can be accessed on-demand, utilizing the full speed of your Sohonet connection. By making those capabilities available to a wide range of solution partners, we are able to offer packages aimed at many of the problems our customers face today, all without the need for CAPEX budgeting.
Meets the standards of MPAA audit & security guidelines — with audit trail logging, encryption-in-transit & at-rest, and SOC-compliant data centres.
Built-in replication, with your choice of 2- or 3-copy redundancy
High speed, low latency access wth guaranteed throughput via the Sohonet Media Network
