The MediaVault 4440 is configured with four removable Video
Pods, each containing its own 4Gb Fibre Channel controller and ten 2.5-inch
SATA disk drives for a total of four channels and 40 drives. The combination
provides a data transfer rate of over 1GB/s and a total capacity of up to
6.4TB. The use of the 2.5-inch disk drives makes the unit
highly portable for location production and editing when paired with a laptop.
Ciprico is also offering a customized, high impact shipping container for users
who want to take the system on the road.
Reliability and fault tolerance is provided through the availability of RAID 6
technology within each Video Pod, ensuring both data integrity and read/write
performance even in the event of any two disk drive failures. This means the
4440 subsystem can sustain up to eight failed disk drives and still continue to
serve the application with maximum read and write throughput. An additional
security feature is provided through hardware data encryption so data can be
transported without concern of loss or theft.
