Excelero helps post-production and production teams to design scale-out storage infrastructures leveraging standard servers and high-performance flash storage so that they can deliver dazzling work, more readily and cost-effectively. Excelero’s flagship solution is NVMesh™, software-defined block storage that customers deploy on their choice of hardware from any server, storage or networking vendor. NVMeshallows any application to utilize pooled NVMe storage devices across a network at local speeds, while getting the benefits of centralized, redundant storage. This improves the interactive editing process and enables customers to stream high-resolution video at “Any-K” resolution, and at highest quality.
As 4K formats and 60fps high frame rates take hold, with even higher resolution content on the horizon, storage capacity and bandwidth increases linearly: doubling the frame rate from 30fps to 60fps also doubles storage needs. For those with legacy infrastructures such as Fibre Channel, the speed to ingest data to the workstations from the Fibre Channel storage arrays is just too slow and does not scale.
WIth Excelero’s NVMesh, firms can build distributed, high-performance server SANs for mixed application workloads with the performance of local flash while avoiding proprietary hardware lock-in and reducing overall storage TCO. They create scalable, future-proof storage infrastructures that provide access to high bandwidth and low latency performance for streaming, editing and reel presentation. NVMesh features Elastic NVMe, a distributed block layer that allows distributed NVMe storage resources to be pooled, so that arbitrary, dynamic block volumes can be utilized by any host running the NVMesh block client. Virtual volumes can be striped, mirrored or both – in converged or disaggregated architectures - while enjoying centralized management, monitoring and administration.
