Facilis Technology Enhances Multi-User Shared File Storage System

At NAB 2018, Facilis Technology will introduce the latest version of its multi-user shared storage system.

The latest Facilis storage software (version 7.1) now includes an improved Web Console with more workflow and management tools, which will be shipping by the NAB Show. In this new version, Facilis has added: Server Status tab with historical per client and per volume bandwidth tracking, as well as overall server load monitoring; Changeable volume ownership for multi-server environments enables use of faster hardware when sharing volumes from older storage enclosures; Remote upgrades avoid installing new software on each client, upgrade all clients at once from the server interface.

New permissions tab streamlines access to information about user account permissions; and Preferred Connection Address enables selectable routing of client connections for increased bandwidth or throttling.

In addition, the company said optimizations in the shared file system have resulted in 15-20 percent better speeds across each connection method. Clients will now load-balance automatically across any number of server uplinks, without teaming or bonding connections. In addition, Hub Server failover features enable no single point of failure in multi-server environments.
