Looking for a future-proof shared storage System

Sneaky Big Studios, one of the most technologically advanced production/post-production studios in the Southwestern US, was envisioned as a fully integrated facility, capable of supporting a vast range of applications, including television and video production, commercials, movies, corporate projects, music videos and recording sessions.
To do this, it needed to incorporate best-of-breed equipment, custom software, IP connectivity and sophisticated, flexible 4K-ready systems for a future-proof infrastructure.
