Rozo Systems Helps Umedia Increase Storage Performance and Scalability

Software-defined scale-out NAS solution allows leading production company to plan for future growth

SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA, November 15, 2017 –– Rozo Systems, a provider of software-defined scale-out NAS solutions, announced today that Umedia, one of Europe’s leading production companies, has selected RozoFS, a software-only solution that runs on commodity x86 servers, for better performance and scalability. RozoFS significantly improves the performance of Umedia’s storage infrastructure while providing the ability to optimize the system in real-time, enabling future growth. Avantcam, a reseller specialized in technical equipment for the production and post-production of movies and television series, worked with Rozo on this deployment. More details about this customer implementation can be found here.

“The most compelling arguments for selecting RozoFS are the outstanding performance and the complete visibility provided in the storage system. Also, it is backed by a very responsive support, better than anything I have experienced,” said Julien Bastidon, IT manager at Umedia.


Capacity expansion of the RozoFS system is efficient, with no downtime, so little planning is required; additional nodes and disks are easily integrated into the existing storage cluster, with optimized rebalancing of data occurring automatically. Also, the performance and scalability of the RozoFS architecture make it possible for Umedia to keep more media assets on the Tier 1 system. This reduces the roundtrips between the Rozo-based Tier 1 system and the ZFS-based Tier 2 system. The result is a workflow within a single platform, producing quicker turnaround on time-critical projects.
