SNS BRINGS EVO SHARED STORAGE SOLUTION TO IBC
|AMSTERDAM - Studio Network Solutions (www.studionetworksolutions.com) is at the IBC show with Evo, its shared storage system. Evo offers file sharing, volume sharing, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, NAS, and up to 32TBs per system. Each unit now includes four seats of SANmp and four seats of Postmap, a metadata management application that lets users tag and quickly locate files on the storage system.
Evo’s integration of SAN and NAS enables everyone in a workgroup to edit, share and review projects, media and other large files using the most appropriate connection type for the task.
Also on display at IBC is the Ellipse Enterprise 4-Gbps Fibre Channel HBA, which enables Mac OS X workstations and servers to take advantage of the high-availability features found in enterprise-class, multiple RAID-controller storage arrays from IBM, EMC, LSI and others.
In addition, the upcoming 3.0 release of SANmp Fibre Channel and iSCSI SAN sharing software are being demonstrated. SANmp enables computers to concurrently share massive amounts of data over high-speed Fibre and iSCSI storage networks resulting in dramatically increased workflow since all users can capture, record and edit directly onto the storage system, eliminating the need to copy files locally.
