Mac backup and
storage solutions

Access to Apple Mac software has become the accepted standard among creatives. It is vital therefore that content made with a Mac is stored and retrieved using a reliable and highly compatible medium.

Creatives need a reliable storage solution

Professional creative applications for Mac generate large volumes of user data. Working effectively with this data requires a storage solution that compares to the performance of local storage. However, limited HDD capacity and disk volatility could jeopardise locally stored project data. To mitigate limits on storage, many organisations turn to the cloud. As a solution, the results can be mixed:

  • Remote data synchronisation can be slow and prone to loss or corruption.
  • App performance can suffer when user data is requested over an internet connection.
  • In some cases, professional media apps may not work at all if user data is not stored locally.

On-premise server storage: a capable solution for creative work

The better option is to utilise on-premise network storage. A good local server will provide the capacity, security, and access speeds necessary for Mac apps to work well.

Counterpoint supplies Mac-compatible high availability server storage to organisations in the commercial, education and social enterprise sectors. Our solutions guarantee fast access to working project data, while also providing insurance against catastrophic data loss.

Efficient, flexible, and cost- effective data synchronisation

In a creative environment where access to multiple machines across a project is required, storage will need to be considered carefully. For example, it may not be possible for school students to log in to the same device from session to session. If an employee is forced to hot desk at the office, they will face a similar scenario.

Availability of backup data is an essential part of any data resilience strategy. However, it is important to ensure secondary measures are in place. If a backup fails, there will be no way to restore files in the event of catastrophic data loss.
