Last month at the NAB Show, Facilis launched new shared storage offerings for both high-end and budget-conscious facilities, together with a tracking product that combines search, management and access to project assets in a single interface.
Facilis’ TerraBlock 24D/HA Hybrid Array includes a drive group of eight high-performance SSDs together with a larger drive group of traditional 4TB SATA drives for 72TB of combined capacity. Performance derived from the SSD group can power multi-stream uncompressed 4K workloads, while the 16-drive group enables collaboration for compressed HD editorial and content creation workflows.
The new TerraBlock 8D is an eight-drive, 16TB turnkey content creation system, a 2U rack mountable server that combines the Facilis Shared File System with virtual volume workflow and performance. The 8D includes Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and can be upgraded to support Fibre Channel and 10GigE connections.
The Facilis FastTracker is an application for cataloging, searching and viewing many media types within Facilis TerraBlock shared storage, including QuickTime, MP4, and MXF codecs as well as DPX and TARGA image sequences.
In addition, Facilis demonstrated version 6.5 of the TerraBlock software with new scalability features for volumes and workgroups.
