Daniel Stern, executive VP, sales for Archion, says, "There
are hundreds of Avid Unity and LANshare systems with aging ZX chassis that have
no replacement or expansion options. By initiating this trade-in, we wanted our
customers to know they have options to expand and enhance their Unity and
LANshare systems. Synergy HD provides superior media protection at a cost that
is 50 percent less than equivalent mirrored Avid storage. This trade-in promotion
increases ROI and renews their existing technology without requiring costly and
time consuming upgrades."
Synergy HD was engineered to expand the storage requirements of existing Unity
clients without the need to replace or upgrade their current Unity
infrastructure. Unlike Unity MediaNetworks, Synergy HD's hardware RAID protects
media in the event of a drive failure without the need to mirror.
The company's Synergy HD4 extends Synergy HD's abilities
from 400MB/sec to 800 MB/sec bandwidth with its dual 4GB FC ports. It also
increases capacity from 8TB to 12TB in the same 3 RU space.
