AC&NC TO DELIGHT MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT PROFESSIONALS AT NAB WITH JETSTOR® RDX16 STORAGE SERVER POWERED BY RAIDIX SOFTWARE
Innovative JetStor Solution Uniquely Meets High-Performance M&E Needs With Functionality Like SSD Caching, Advanced Error-Correction & RAID 7.3
Pittsburgh, PA, April 8, 2016. AC&NC, a provider of leading RAID/Hybrid Flash/All Flash storage solutions, will feature its JetStor RDX16 storage server at the NAB Show April 18–21 in Las Vegas (Booth SL12109). The platform, bundled with RAIDIX software, is engineered to support all facets of media production. When provisioned with ATTO Technology’s Celerity 16Gb Fibre Channel host bust adapters (HBAs), the system offers an unsurpassed combination of performance, data protection, flexibility, and economy.
The JetStor solution is a unique hardware and software bundle optimized to store and deliver large-block files like high-definition (HD) film and television content, making it ideal for such applications as:
• intensive multimedia projects
• high definition video production
• film and 3D animation
• media storage
The 16-Bay JetStor RDX16 deploys HD and solid-state drives (SSDs) for Tier0 and Tier1 shared storage. The RAIDIX software automatically identifies and relocates frequently accessed data to the SSDs for the fastest access and media transfer speeds possible. Frames are never lost even with concurrent HD or 2K–8K digital video streams. Additionally, the RAIDIX software ensures that the hardware always performs at maximum capabilities.
“The partnership between JetStor, RAIDIX, and ATTO Technology has built a storage server solution that is optimized for the most demanding media workloads,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “Even the largest production files are quickly available without latency and are never at risk. Moreover, the platform can be scaled out using commodity hardware, providing economical expansion.”
The JetStor RDX16 solution uses RAIDIX error-correction technology to detect and fix silent corruptions while normal disk operations are performing without performance degradation. The system also conducts background scans for silent errors during lower-activity periods. As a result, they eliminate data loss, ensuring that vital files always remain intact.
JetStor RDX platforms offer erasure coding and are the only large-block media delivery and storage systems to deliver RAID 7.3. The triple parity of RAID 7.3 greatly decreases the probability of system failure and ensures rapid data recovery even if three disks fail simultaneously.
“AC&NC arrays and ATTO HBAs are the ideal hardware complements for RAIDIX storage software,” said Anna Belova, VP of Business Development for RAIDIX. “Studios and production companies now have a complete, cost-effective media storage solution to handle digital content with unprecedented data protection and scalability. We think NAB attendees will be impressed when they visit our booth.”
ATTO Celerity 16Gb Fibre Channel HBAs deliver up to 6400 MB/s in a single PCIe slot solution. Combining two next-generation storage technologies—PCIe 3.0 interconnect and 16-Gigabit Fibre Channel—they deliver an advanced storage connectivity solution with high performance, intelligence, and scalability.
“Our Celerity 16Gb HBAs, with proprietary Advanced Data StreamingTM technology, help keep data moving quickly and smoothly, making them a great choice for digital media workflows,” says Tim Klein, CEO of ATTO Technology, Inc. “We’re happy to be included in this solution with AC&NC and RAIDIX, companies known for a strong dedication to helping content creators stay ahead of the curve, especially as they prepare for 4K and 8K workflows.”
