Elements Expands NAS

Elements storage solution has new 60bay edition and 25/100 GbE support.

Elements’ NAS will now be available in a 60bay expandable version with 25/100GbE support, “marking a departure from its reputation as an entry-level only unit and positioning it as a cost-effective alternative” says the firm. It also wants to be seen as a “fierce competitor of solutions that rely on the considerable expense of Fibre Channel connectivity.”

Elements NAS, previously offered in only a 24bay configuration, provides the features and benefits of big brother Elements ONE - including the full package of workflow enhancement tools and the optional Media Library - in an easily integrated storage solution ideal for smaller workgroups without the need for block-level access.

IBC attendees will be the first to see the new Elements NAS 60bay version, expandable via JBODs, with all new improvements, such as real snapshots, VSS and ACL support, higher stream count performance, significantly higher small-file/random IO performance and the same RAID controller layout as Elements ONE.

“We are delighted to introduce an expandable NAS storage solution at IBC that incorporates the features needed to easily accomplish collaborative editing,” says André Kamps, CEO. “What’s even more exciting, however, is the support of remote direct memory access (RDMA) for raw workflows on Linux (Flame/Baselight/Resolve).”
