​Promise Adds Adobe Anywhere to Storage

Taiwanese storage vendor Promise Technology has announced that its VTrak A-Class series of solutions has been qualified for use with Adobe Anywhere.

This means that with Adobe Anywhere and the VTrak A-Class, users can share video files in real-time using Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Prelude CC from anywhere, as if the files were stored locally.

"Adobe continually provides their customers with tools and services that help create groundbreaking digital content and deploy it across media and devices to achieve greater success, and we are proud to have supported Adobe applications from the very start,” said James Lee, CEO, Promise Technology.

"Our customers want to focus on their creativity, and not worry about having enough -- or the right kind -- of storage," said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations at Adobe. "They simply want it to work, and that is what Promise offers, along with control and security.”

The VTrak A-Class delivers file sharing for nearly all aspects of media and entertainment, including video, film and broadcast, at a claimed 'fraction of the cost' of its competitors. While reducing the complexities of a SAN configuration to a single unit, the VTrak A-Class includes unified managed software that makes having separate metadata software and separate RAID software unnecessary. This makes it a low cost of entry solution, which allows users to 'pay as you grow.'

Requiring no server hardware, the solution also allows for high-performance collaborative editing right out of the box using Promise's low latency file system, VTrakFS. The VTrak A-Class enables multiple clients running Windows, Mac OS X or Linux to access a shared SAN file system over Fibre Channel. Additionally, the VTrak A-Class allows storage capacity to scale-out to over 9 petabytes (with 6TB drives), while remaining online and eliminating downtime.

The Vtrak G1100 NAS Gateway provides 10Gb Ethernet access to the VTrak A-Class shared storage appliance, allowing multiple users the ability to simultaneously edit video for post-production and broadcasting. The Gateway is a 1U file server with 8Gb FC front end and 10GbE dual port back end connectivity that provides simplicity by using the same single storage management software as the VTrak A-Class.
