​Facilis Puts Flash Solid State Drive First

Facilis will showcase its Flash/SSD (Solid State Drive) technology, which it has incorporated within the TerraBlock Hybrid24 and SSD8 products at IBC.

While the integration of SSD technology “significantly increases” the available shared bandwidth for heavy 4K+ production, Facilis says it’s still important to efficiently utilize SSD technology in a broadcast or post production workflow.

“Storage capacity increases have also been announced across the model line, with substantially lower price points, making TerraBlock accessible to the broadest range of broadcast, post production and corporate users,” says James McKenna, VP of marketing and pre-sales. “High bandwidth connectivity options being shown include 32Gbps Fibre Channel and 40Gig Ethernet, as well as internal 12Gbps SAS controllers all of which will deliver increased speed and performance.”

Facilis will show the FastTracker application for cataloging, searching and viewing media within Facilis Shared Storage. This system includes custom metadata tagging, catalog user permissions, Boolean search capability and incremental indexing functionality.

Facilis will also show VR/360 video workflows using Adobe Premiere Pro. Additionally, the SyncBlock Archive suite will be shown with LTO7 support and automated Cloud backup to Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, or Dropbox.
