Facilis Technology Unveils v7 TerraBlock

Facilis will introduce version 7.0 of its TerraBlock shared storage system and showcase changes that “offer significant performance gains for both new and installed TerraBlock storage networks” in Las Vegas.

“Through the use of drive set aggregation and offload of some server processes, this technology places Facilis systems into a new category of performance,” said James McKenna, VP at Facilis Technology. “With speeds over 4GB/sec available from a single volume, these systems offer industry-leading capability. Customers will also benefit from enhanced system redundancy and data resiliency, all while receiving near-linear scalability of bandwidth when expanding the network.”

He added, “We have never announced such a leap in performance with a single release. Through the use of technology currently in development, existing customers will be able to substantially increase the effective bandwidth of their systems.”

Facilis is also developing tools that increase the efficiency of administrative tasks, and improve the user experience. Newly-designed server and workstation monitoring interfaces, remote volume management console and a more integrated user database will be among the many improvements.

Also showing at the NAB show will be a new version (v.1.5) of the Facilis FastTracker, an application for cataloging, searching and viewing any media type within the Facilis TerraBlock network shared storage system.
