SymplyRAID is New Storage from Symply

Symply has released SymplyRAID, a RAID storage system with low latency and “massive” capacity for large-scale media workflows. Developed with Promise Technology, the system features a RAID Controller design based on the latest Intel storage processor.

"SymplyRAID is unlike anything the industry has seen. Built on rock-solid engineering, it provides unmatched ease-of-deployment and an unparalleled price performance," said Alex Grossman, CEO and president, Symply. "Broadcast and post facilities with existing infrastructure need next-generation storage systems to deliver the performance required for 4K and beyond, without the increased complexity and high costs typically associated with adding more capacity. SymplyRAID is that solution for today's fast-paced media workflow environments."

With fast dual quad, 16Gb Fibre Channel connectivity, SymplyRAID can scale to nearly 1PB while delivering the consistent performance and low latency that is critical for handling the complex demands of media and creative workflows. 

The product includes 24 drives in 4U for space efficiency, redundant power, cooling, and RAID controllers with no single point of failure. It is available in 3U 16-drive and 4U 24-drives with capacities for any need and is scalable.  Using dual quad 16Gb Fibre Channel ports, SymplyRAID is capable of reading and writing up to 12GB and 5GB of data per second, respectively. It can handle up to eight streams of uncompressed 10bit Quad HD or hundreds of streams of ProRes 422 content. The inclusion of multiple Fibre Channel ports builds resiliency into the system, while enhancing speed and performance. Through SymplyRAID's remote management software, SymplyGO, users can easily set up and manage the system via macOS, Mac OS X, Windows, iOS, and watchApp devices.

For $22,999 you get a three-year warranty that includes overnight defective component replacement as well as 24/7 online assistance, including advice and configuration help from Symply's team of media, storage, and workflow experts.
