​G-Technology’s New NAS Is “Wickedly Fast”

G-Technology introduced a new network attached storage (NAS) solution – G-RACK 12. It features a scalable 12-bay server offering capacities up to 120TB.

An optional expansion chassis is available for expanding up to another 120TB of storage. The G-RACK 12 is said to be ideal for collaboration, utilizing quad 10-gigabit Ethernet connections for high-speed data transfers.

“The G-RACK 12's wickedly fast read/write speeds make it an unparalleled NAS option for professional environments, and its intuitive OS server interface allows us to get our entire department working off the G-RACK the same morning we unboxed it, all without hiring a specialist,” said Ted Pacult, post production supervisor for Documentary Now, in a release.

The G-RACK 12 incorporates a G-Technology-developed NAS operating system with BTRfs file system, with a graphical interface, removing the complexity of typical NAS administrative systems. The 12-bay, expandable units incorporate enterprise hard drives and are available in 48TB, 72TB, 96TB and 120TB storage capacities.

"RED Studios Hollywood is constantly looking for the latest storage innovations, such as the G-RACK 12,” stated Jarred Land, president of RED Digital Cinema. “The 10-gigabit network speeds and ability to work within our Adobe, Final Cut Pro, and Avid ecosystems makes our G-RACK 12 an extremely valuable asset.”

G-RACK 12 pricing varies depending on capacity and configuration.
