​Scale Logic Debuts Genesis HyperMDC

Scale Logic previewed the Genesis HyperMDC, a high-performance metadata cluster supporting the HyperFS file system.

The new Genesis HyperMDC features a Scale-Out NAS and SAN metadata controller with additional storage options and/or open architecture platform support. The appliance is said to be ideal for media and entertainment workflows in post, sports broadcast, visual effects, and other specialized areas.

The unit comes in two configurations: the 100S and the 200D. As a metadata controller, the 100S allows for high-performance while allowing the user to make their own storage choices. The 200D takes the performance of the 100S and adds high-availability, with fully-redundant, low-latency, metadata leveraging, dual controller RAID and bonded network and fabric.

"The Genesis HyperMDC is the culmination of over two decades of building advanced, high-performance servers for various media-intense environments, including shared file systems," remarked Daryl Heinis, CTO of Scale Logic. "The HyperMDC demonstrates a genuine focus on making the implementation, installation, and support of the HyperFS system easy and efficient for editors, producers, and support personnel, without sacrificing high-performance, high-availability, or an attractive price point."

Chuck Buelow, V.P. Business Development, eMAM said, "We recently worked with SLI's application engineering team to qualify a very specific customer requirement that included Scale Logic's HyperMDC, MXF Server, and SGL Archive Management, as well as Empress Media Asset Manager. Scale Logic gives ISV partners the ability to test real word configurations prior to deployment and ensures a better overall customer experience"

"Hitachi Data Systems has partnered with Scale Logic for over three years," added Dr. Jay Yogeshwar, Director, WW Media, Broadcast and Entertainment, Hitachi Data Systems. "Together we have successfully deployed shared storage solutions worldwide. The seamless integration of Scale Logic's HyperFS file system and its Metadata Controller Cluster appliance, HyperMDC, with Hitachi Storage and Compute platforms will allow Hitachi to replicate this success at other large media post-productions facilities.”
