Hello, I am Martin Yeoh. I run a video production company call MLC TV.  It started out as a one man show and now, it has grown into a team of 8-9 people.

“Losing my data after a shoot was a really stressful period for us”

Many years ago, we had an incident whereby we lost some data after a shoot. We tried different data recovery methods and it did not work. It was a really stressful period for us.

So, after that incident, I found what I thought was the best solution for us.  We went out and bought our first Synology NAS and we outfitted it with Seagate hard disc drives.  That was 5 years ago.  Since then, we have added a few more of these systems to our collection.  One of our NAS system is actually two identical NAS that is constantly mirroring each other.  If one of these NAS were to go down (touch wood), I always know that I have a back-up.

We can create secure folders that are password protected and share them with external parties, especially if it is a large file.  It makes things a lot easier.  Our clients can even assess the files using the app.  They can watch the videos that we have done, leave comments and stuff like that.

Ever since we have integrated this system into our company, it has provided me with a greater peace of mind.  The Seagate Ironwolf Health Management feature actively monitors the health of my NAS and the built in Seagate Rescue Data Recovery services plan which comes with the Ironwolf Pro NAS drives is a bonus.  It allows me to not worry about data loss and focus my energies more on the creative work. So far, I am loving it.
