Animal Logic is a film and television related enterprise. At the beginning of its establishment in 1991, Animal Logic mainly developed in the television advertising, titles, and patented software research and development fields. Animal Logic currently has four departments: Commercials, Play, Film, and Research. Its business involves digital media, such as films, television, computer games, and the Internet. Film has become the central business of Animal Logic, and the film department occupies one-third of the employees and business volume of the enterprise. Animal Logic Film has participated behind-the-scenes in films, including The Matrix (1999), Hero (2002), The Quiet American (2002), Swimming Upstream (2003), Moulin Rouge (2001), Happy Feet (2006), Stealth (2005), Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010), and many more.
As a visual effects production enterprise, Animal Logic consumes a lot of computing and storage resources for rendering production and data storage. During the peak period of visual effects production, 150 TB of data is generated every day. The enterprise needs a high-performance, safe, and reliable cloud platform to back up and transfer data. On the one hand, the data needs to be stored for a long time. On the other hand, the data needs to be readily accessed at any time, with higher flexibility and lower cost.
Due to the construction scale and O&M capabilities of its data center, a large amount of new data is generated every day and stored for a long time. Ensuring the instant storage and real-time call of data can bring challenges to the IT department. At the same time, a large number of unified backup of offline services also need to be considered in parallel, which puts forward higher requirements for the overall data security of the solution.
In different periods of film and television production, the amount of data in the business varies substantially. Learning how to flexibly cope with different data pressures during peak business periods and realize resource allocation are challenges for the IT department. At the same time, due to the different business production cycles and demand, when the business volume is relatively small, we also need to reduce the amount of data storage to achieve cost savings.
Alibaba Cloud has built a one-stop data archiving and backup solution in response to the need for unified data storage and high-concurrency and high-elasticity storage services for Animal Logic in film and television rendering.
The data archiving and backup solution of Alibaba Cloud unified storage helps Animal Logic achieve time, cost, security, and efficiency improvements throughout the entire chain of data storage, management, and backup. It reduces the comprehensive operating cost by approximately 50%.
