We’re extremely excited to announce that Nexus has become our newest customer by choosing to invest in PixStor. Nexus is an independent production company and animation studio based in Shoreditch, East London, with a worldwide reputation for creative storytelling across a range of media.
Nexus has chosen PixStor to replace their NAS infrastructure which serves as the primary production storage for their CG animation and VFX department: Ryan Cawthorne, Systems Engineer, Nexus, said:
We considered various options for our refresh including some of the large, traditional scale-out NAS vendors but PixStor delivers the equivalent high-performance yet doesn’t tie us to any particular hardware platform – so is incredibly cost-effective for the future.
Nexus is dedicated to the development of unique voices in filmmaking, with a roster of directing talent working with multi-disciplinary skills in animation, live-action and interactive media. The studio’s production, animation, post-production staff and facilities support them, with Nexus being a home for the people and technology to create some of the most innovative work in entertainment and branded content.
Their work includes an Oscar-nominated short, Grammy-nominated and MTV Award-winning music videos, and Cannes Grand Prix, Gold Lions and Black D&AD pencil winning commercials.
