Synergy, Scale Logic’s New Multi-Purpose SAN

Scale Logic has launched Synergy a storage server appliance combining shared storage with an open media application compute platform.

Scalable to 192TB of RAID-protected shared storage in a single chassis, but scalable into petabytes, Synergy is certified to integrate and deliver a wide range of MAM, PAM, transcode, archive, or other workflow engines. It uses an advanced enterprise class storage file system called HyperFS.

"Synergy lives up to its name by integrating the key components of a shared workflow into one appliance,” said Bob Herzan, CEO, Scale Logic. “It features encompass RAID, SAN, and archive, as well as industry specific workflow tools. Synergy offers streamlined appllication integration, simplified installation, and economical support options. We know that it represents the evolution of over two decades of shared storage and storage server development."

Synergy is for any media-intense environment that still allows for ease of deployment with pre-set, application-ready server images, multiple connectivity options, and integrated first call support.

"The Synergy integrated platform could only be mastered by a hybrid company like Scale Logic" said Jeff Lowe, VP of Business Development, Scale Logic “As part of the OEM development team for the HyperFS SAN and Scale-out NAS file system, we are excited by our two-pronged approach to target both channel partners and OEMs at the intersection of the media and data storage markets with a cost-effective and simple to deploy appliance strategy. We have integrated, networked storage expertise and content creation workflow experience in the global market."
