How One Hollywood Studio Recently Switched to the StorageHeaven TapeMaster Solution

While the might not immediately ring any bells, you've likely seen a product or two of the brand Big Breakfast. They produce hit television shows like Adam Ruins Everything and Hot Date, as well as multimedia content exclusively for the online audience – and they've recently deployed the StorageHeaven TapeMaster-SA Automated Standalone LTO / LTFS Ultrium Tape Migration and Cloning System to fulfill their data backup needs. It's a move that will reduce their costs by more than 50% when compared to modern alternatives.

It's easy to see how a company like Big Breakfast would accumulate massive amounts of digital information. Between filming, editing and producing content in various digital mediums, long-term data storage and backup is of the topmost priority.

According to Mark Chernausek, IT engineer with Big Breakfast: "We began our research back in May 2017 and we decided on the Storage Heaven TapeMaster as it fits our need for an offline easy to use standalone LTO duplication and migration solution. In addition to their manual devices they also had fully automated which is ideal for us since we wanted to clone our tapes 24/7 with the least amount of labor and operator intervention as possible."

He continued his statement by touching on the ease-of-installation and accessibility of StorageHeaven's solutions by saying: "It took no more than a couple hours to set up in our data center and we never had to engage StorageHeaven support to go to full production."
