​ELEMENTS Adds 25/100GbE for 4K Workflows

ELEMENTS, German-based developer of storage solutions, is adding 25/100 GbE connectivity in its server and storage appliances for 4K workflows.

4K RAW workflows are not currently possible using existing 10GbE technology. 25/100 GbE also wins over 10GbE being simpler to deploy with a 40 percent lower cost bandwidth, states the firm.

Existing OM3-based/fibre based peripheral equipment, such as SFP+/LC and patch panels can still be utilized, including existing 10GbE and original Fibre Channel based infrastructures, with the new connectivity enabling ELEMENTS' customers to work over a single Ethernet port.

“Whilst storage and server side clearly benefit from the aggregated performance that 25/100 GbE can provide, for high end grading and compositing workstations, this makes a cost effective alternative to 16bit Fibre Channel at the client, says André Kamps, CEO.
