South Park, Apple storage
South Park recently began running out of storage space, and has since for its storage needs. The cartoon studio in may installed three Apple Xserve RAID arrays to replace its digital linear tape (DLT) library and direct-attached disk storage. J.J. Franzen, technology supervisor at South Park Studios said he chose Apple hardware based on a "gut" feeling that its technology would be good, and so far he has not been disappointed, according to a report from ComputerWorld. Franzen said he now expects to add two more Xserve RAID arrays for a total of 15TB of storage, and place his disk storage behind a couple of switches from Cisco Systems to make managing his storage easier.
