​EditShare Enhances EFS Shared Storage

EditShare’s latest file system version of its file system and management console, EFS 2020, debuts in Amsterdam with an improved performance rated up to 20% better.

EditShare’s technology is deep and sophisticated, but its fundamental ethos is to remove complexities from the creative workflow, enabling media professionals to focus on the artistic aspect of their work, optimizing overall productivity,” states Conrad Clemson, CEO, EditShare. “EditShare continues to deliver on this with enhancements to nearly every aspect of the new EFS file system and management console. With speed and security topping the list of advancements, EFS 2020 enables EditShare customers to effortlessly manage the growing requirements for high-bandwidth, multi-stream 4K workflows and beyond.”

Unlike generic IT storage systems, EditShare explains that it has written its own drivers for EFS, for use with Windows, MacOS and Linux. EditShare manages the entire EFS 2020 technology stack from the file system to OS drivers, which means enterprise-level stability and faster video file transfers. Users can expect more real-time video streams, without the bottlenecks caused by legacy network protocols.

EFS 2020 File Auditing “is the first and only real-time purpose-built content auditing platform for the entire production workflow,” says Clemson. “With high-profile media content theft on the rise, security is top of mind for media professionals. Designed to track all content movement on the server, including a deliberately obscured change, EFS 2020 File Auditing provides a complete, user-friendly activity report with a detailed trail back to the instigator. An important and timely addition to the EditShare production ecosystem, file auditing is an industry recommended and best practice security measure that ensures accountability by answering ‘who did what and when.’”
