MILLER WISHENGRAD POST EMPLOYS JMR'S NEW FIBRESTREAM RAID
Miller Wishengrad Post is using the scalable storage solution for its editing suites, and its performance speed has the ability to exceed 1,300 MB/s.
"We were always looking for a cost-effective technology solution where we could share storage across our workstations, but it seemed that many of the available options didn't fit our budget," explains editor Sean Leute. "But when we talked to JMR and researched their FibreStream system, we discovered that it would allow us to get twice the storage capacity for nearly half the cost."
The FibreStream RAID array can be configured for RAID levels 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, 10, 40, 50 or 60. Its 3RU rack-mount enclosure contains 16 hot-swappable 3.5-inch disk drive canisters for 3 Gb/s SAS or SATA-2 disk drives, which creates a dense storage array of up to 32TB when using the upcoming 2TB SATA-2 drives.
