Promise intros big-data solution for collaborative workflows
MILPITAS, CA — Promise Technology, Inc. (, a developer of high-performance RAID storage solutions for the media and entertainment market, unveiled a low-cost, turnkey, scale out SAN storage solution for big data at the NAB show recently. The VTrak A-Class is suited and feature optimized for the storage intensive workflows of post and enables multiple clients running Windows, Mac OS X or Linux to access a shared SAN file system over Fibre Channel. 

As an all-in-one SAN solution, the VTrak A-Class eliminates the need to purchase a separate primary metadata storage server, secondary metadata storage server and metadata storage device/array in order to create a SAN solution, making it easier to deploy, more energy efficient, and more cost effective. 

The solution offers high-performance and low latency over a shared SAN optimized for HD resolution, providing over 5,500MB/s sequential read and 2,400MB/s sequential write performance, per node up to eight nodes. Collaborative editing is possible right out of the box. Studios can increase performance and capacity by adding eight VTrak Ex30f series subsystem storage nodes. Total capacity is 7.68PBs of raw storage.
