iconik Hybrid Cloud Media Management Now Native on FreeNAS
Availability of new iconik plugin makes it easier than ever to store and manage digital media content with FreeNAS
Sept 12, 2019, San Jose, CA – iXsystems and iconik are pleased to announce that FreeNAS can now natively act as a storage repository on the iconik smart media management platform. The new iconik storage gateway plugin is now available in the Available Plugins section within the FreeNAS® web interface. Once installed, it allows for easy, always available access to shared files in FreeNAS from any location.
ICONIK POWERS YOUR WORKFLOW
iconik streamlines media management by making local and cloud-based assets discoverable from a single interface. Users in editing, broadcasting, or any content-driven industry can easily ingest, manage, search, and collaborate on their digital files effortlessly. With the new plugin, it is easier than ever to store and archive digital media content with any FreeNAS system.
MANAGE ASSETS NOT FILES
iconik transforms your media files into usable, manageable assets. Accessing the web-based portal brings all your digital content into a single, searchable view. Users can comment and interact with their team, add metadata to media for better searchability, and even integrate with Adobe® products, such as Premiere, After Effects, and Photoshop. Files stored across different physical locations, as well as the cloud, are all viewable in a “single pane of glass” to streamline cross-site coordination.
“The combination of global availability through iconik’s cloud-based platform, and FreeNAS’ ability to deploy storage anywhere is perfect for cross-site users and film production crews.”
– Parham Azimi, CEO iconik Media
