To learn more about all of the new EditShare shared storage and asset management announcements, stop by the booth #SL9716.
EditShare® a technology leader in intelligent shared storage and media management solutions, announced the introduction of the XStream EFS 200 and XStream EFS 300 storage products. Like other XStream EFS products, these new products are based on the EditShare File System and provide dynamic performance and impressive fault tolerance while streamlining administrative tasks and providing a plug-and-play upgrade path. Unlike other XStream EFS products, however, the new EFS 200 and EFS 300 are the first to provide the option of starting with a simple, affordable and scalable single node solution that also includes the Flow Media Asset Management and Ark Media Archive applications. This combination of complete workflow support, right-sized capacity and cutting-edge scale-out storage features is ideal for equipping small or emerging media operations and can also become their long-term enterprise grade shared storage platform.
“Obviously, developing an easy-to-manage, high-performance, fault-tolerant scale-out shared storage platform that scales out to meet the capacity and bandwidth needs of a typical media enterprise isn’t an easy task. Perhaps even more difficult is the task of developing one that also scales in to meet the needs of small or emerging video companies,” comments Bill Thompson, EditShare storage product manager. “Our new XStream EFS 200 and EFS 300 are a great option for the thousands of smaller companies where a multi-node cluster is simply overkill for their needs.”
The premium XStream EFS storage platform is a powerful distributed scale-out file system combined with a highly resilient architecture, specifically developed for media intensive workflows. It’s designed from the ground up to support large-scale workgroups requiring high-bandwidth, high-volume media ingest, transcoding, online collaborative editing and multiplatform distribution of HD, 2k, 4k and beyond. Whether a one-node or multi-node system, every XStream EFS model can easily be expanded to increase capacity and bandwidth. For ease of use and administration, all XStream EFS systems present a single namespace, regardless of the system size. And unlike many SAN storage solutions, the performance of XStream EFS does not decrease as storage use increases. It’s continual optimal performance and outstanding reliability are backed by RAID 6 technology.
