​ToolsOnAir Presents just:store

ToolsOnAir (TOA) is presenting its new “broadcast optimised” NAS solution just:store at IBC.

ToolsOnAir says that for most broadcast professionals, buying storage is like buying life insurance. Both are unloved; both are a must have; and, in both cases, wrong decisions aren’t discovered until it’s too late. Unfortunately when purchasing storage, broadcasters often make bad choices. After investing in expensive solutions from reputable storage companies, they discover that traditional manufacturers don’t understand broadcast and high-bandwidth multimedia environments.

Its new just:store “surpasses all expectations”, with a new interface, higher speed, “better hardware and of course, more storage, at an unbeatable price!” it says.

Features include: Profile work at the Linux level, taking decisions on which operations should be prioritised. An onCoreframework allowing the incorporation of customised workflows; improved and unique synergy with TOA tools just:play, just:in and just:live; a cache engine for manipulating cache in different layers of disk controller, operational system and network and a new Avid project Workflow.

There are two options for the latter: Classical and Bin Locking (ISIS Emulation). The classical (replacing TOA's old FlowProjects) allows users to save the project anywhere in a just:store (including but not limited to FlowProjects) and users can now open the same project in as many places as desired.

Starting at 48TB (12-bay) and scaling up to 192B (24-bay) per chassis TOA offer systems which support an unlimited number of clients and come with a five year warranty.

“Whether you’re planning to use just:store as a standalone storage system or in combination with our very own ToolsOnAir Broadcast Suite, qualified MAM or archive systems, database applications or for web serving, just:store is the ideal storage solution for state-of-the art deployments,” states the firm.
