LAS VEGAS - DataDirect Networks showed a number of Silicon
Storage Appliance (S2A) storage solutions at NAB this week, designed for video,
animation/rendering and 2K/4K DI applications.
The S2A HPC Storage Solution (HPCSS) is a cost-effective, realtime,
scalable, high performance cluster storage solution that can serve as an
alternative to DAS. Designed to overcome the scalability limitations of
block-based storage, the HPCSS can accommodate up to six 2K and two 4K realtime
streams to multiple workstations with a 2.5GB/s per solution building block.
The company’s SATA disk-based active digital archive
solution offers a scalable NFS file serving solution for secondary digital
intermediate storage, digital asset management and backup and recovery applications.
Configured in a small footprint the solution is very dense and can deliver up
to 125 hours of 4K, 10-bit resolution video, and considerably more for 2K or HD
The S2A9550 with CXFS SAN file system is a realtime,
heterogeneous data sharing storage area network solution that delivers extreme
performance of up to 15GB/s per file system while sustaining a high quality of
service for video, 2K & 4K DI applications. The solution is capable of
streaming up to six 2K streams of two 4K streams for DI playback.
