EditShare’s Pair of Lower Cost Shared Storage Products
XStream EFS 300.
The XStream EFS 200 and EFS 300 scale from a single node to 5PB Enterprise cluster.
EditShare is releasing XStream EFS 200 and 300 based on the EditShare File System and the first to provide the option of starting with “a simple, affordable and scalable single node solution that also includes the Flow Media Asset Management and Ark Media Archive applications.
This combination is targeting small or emerging media operations and can also become their long-term enterprise grade shared storage platform, says Bill Thompson, EditShare storage product manager.
“Obviously, developing an easy-to-manage, high-performance, fault-tolerant scalable shared storage platform that scales out to meet the capacity and bandwidth needs of a typical media enterprise isn’t an easy task. Perhaps even more difficult is the task of developing one that also scales in to meet the needs of small or emerging video companies. Our new XStream EFS 200 and EFS 300 are a great option for the thousands of smaller companies where a multi-node cluster is simply overkill for their needs.”
The premium XStream EFS storage platform is a distributed, scale-out file system developed for media-intensive workflows such as online collaborative editing and multiplatform distribution of 4K. Whether a one-node or multi-node system, every XStream EFS model can easily be expanded to increase capacity and bandwidth.
“Unlike many SAN storage solutions, the performance of XStream EFS does not decrease as storage use increases,” says Thompson. “Its continual optimal performance and outstanding reliability are backed by RAID 6 technology.”
The XStream EFS 200 is described as a single-node configuration with 12 enterprise-grade HDDs offering 24, 48, 64, 96 or 128 TB of raw storage capacity in a 2U space saving form factor. In addition to media management capabilities like advanced project sharing, the XStream EFS 200 ships with five Flow production asset management licenses and an Ark archiving application.
For media facilities seeking greater performance, the XStream EFS 300 is a 16 drive chassis which can scale from a single 32TB master node including asset management and workflow tools, to a fully expanded 5PB, resilient enterprise cluster.
