Cucumber and Company Buys JMR SHARE Networked Storage Server to Centralize Storage Needs

Chatsworth, CA, July 17, 2019JMR Electronics, Inc. a leading provider of scalable storage solutions, announced today that Beckley, West Virginia based Cucumber & Company has purchased the company’s BlueStor SHARE Networked Storage Server with 160TB capacity as their central storage repository for Mac based Final Cut Pro and After Effects projects.

Cucumber & Company, which opened its doors in 2003, provides businesses and producers with a variety of services that include video production, web design, multimedia marketing, and graphic design throughout the Mountain State and nationwide. The company touts an experienced customer centric team comprising of video editors, camera operators, drone pilots and live streaming directors that afford its clients video production products including car commercials, corporate training videos, website promotional videos, and live event coverage, as well as multi-camera shoots with the ability to live stream events to thousands of people online.

JMR’s BlueStor SHARE with 10GbE fiber I/O connections, powered by euroNAS OS, acts as the main drive and repository for Cucumber & Company’s production and post production workflows. Facility owner Dwane Muncy explains the logistical challenges prior to choosing SHARE, “We wasted a great deal of time searching for assets across multiple drives or were misplaced, and we were not able to see everything in one location prior to installing the JMR NAS storage server into our network. Our performance and capacity requirements include a scalable system that would be able to handle the read/write requirements of up to real-time 4K workflows from multiple edit bays, easy-to-use functionality, have a very high degree of reliability, excellent client support and at a reasonable price.”

Cucumber & Company researched many vendors before deciding on JMR and their BlueStor SHARE system. Added Muncy, “SHARE checked all of our requirement boxes on build quality, reliability, performance and capacity, functionality, price and after sales support. An added benefit is that the system can handle high-load shared storage applications and having a software license that doesn’t charge for additional storage capacity. This is a top-notch product from a world-class company. Every time I have had a question, JMR and their support personnel which are extremely knowledgeable, were right there to help me solve the issue.”

The affordably priced BlueStor SHARE Networked Storage Server is ideal for file serving, load-balancing shared storage, fault-tolerant email/web server/streaming media, digital A/V (Audio/Video) workflow storage, HA cluster and back up storage applications. By combining SAS RAID and file server functionality into a single unit, SHARE delivers simple, reliable, high performance storage for converged networks, enabling users to expand applications to the cloud, or to virtualized and clustered environments. Priced at up to five times less than other enterprise-class offerings, it’s available up to 160TB data capacities and can scale beyond 1 PB with a single head unit. The software license provided from the start allows unlimited storage capacity without need for license upgrades and comes with a 3-year labor and parts warranty.
