Remove limits to imagination, with IBM Global Financing

As visual effects become more sophisticated, keeping audiences spellbound with hyper-real, fantastical journeys places increasing computational demands on the media and entertainment industry.

Media and entertainment companies must be able to share, store and access huge files – and traditional infrastructure solutions are simply failing to deliver.

And with each company having varied and unpredictable needs, finding one solution to fulfil their requirements is incredibly difficult, with issues around scalability presenting further challenges as firms end up with ‘islands of tech’.

Pixit Media, however, saw an opportunity to revolutionise the industry’s approach to IT resource management through the power of software-defined solutions. But they needed the right tech to make this a reality.

With IBM® Spectrum Storage technology they were able to put consistent performance and chart-topping scalability in the limelight, and has since become the UK’s leading provider of post-production software-defined solutions based on this technology.

Working with IBM Global Financing enabled Pixit Media to secure the IBM technology under favourable terms, as Barry Evans explains: “We took advantage of a promotion offering a three-month payment deferral, followed by three interest-free quarterly payments. That meant that we could recoup revenues from our clients before paying IBM, enabling us to scale our sales and operations to other territories far more rapidly.
