The EditStor Velo 96TB from Archion takes shared media storage to an exciting new level. By delivering high performance at very reasonable cost, post production and finishing professionals can finally afford one central media storage system for their entire media workflow. Yet, EditStor Velo goes far beyond high speeds and affordability; it’s just as much the broad functionality, high scalability and overall simplicity that makes this NAS storage server an easy choice.
With 2500 MB/second from a single 16 bay server storage system and up to 5000 MB/second with expansion chassis, 4K playback worries are a thing of the past. EditStor Velo delivers these high speeds in multi-write modes supporting as many as 40 UltraHD 4k video streams in a shared media storage environment.
The flexibility of EditStor Velo is truly unmatched for post production and finishing 4K workflows, especially in the case of Avid storage. There are no drivers or client licenses required for Mac and PC transparent Avid project sharing. Archion extends sharing of projects with the APS Shareconnector™ Tool.
EditStor Velo supports industry standard IT file transfer protocols simultaneously for maximum connectivity to and integration of the servers and workstations that drive your workflow, including such devices as ingest & playout server storage systems. From low cost standard Ethernet for offline workflows, to 10GigE connectivity for color correction and other finishing demands to 40GigE for switch utilization, EditStor Velo provides the essential networking.
Adding to this is a broad spectrum of media management features. This begins with ability to create shared volumes of any size while also having the convenience of being able to expand those volumes on the fly without downtime and performance degradation. EditStor Velo expansion chassis can also be added to the same volume group or separate without shutting down or stopping work.
In addition, EditStor Velo offers a comprehensive set of user and group management, as well as user security and access. This includes the support of both an internal or external LDAP protocol. When it comes to the copy, migration and back up of your media, EditStor Velo has all the automation tools of an enterprise storage server, including storage pools, volume replication and snapshot, data replication, volume manager, virtual tape volumes (created in the system), as well as direct and fast tape backup (LTO/LTFS) for long term archive.
All digital video professionals throughout the media and entertainment industry utilizing such creative tools as Adobe Premiere® and After Affects®, Avid Media Composer® and ProTools®, Apple Final Cut X®, Autodesk Smoke®, Blackmagic Resolve and other popular finishing tools, can greatly benefit from this fast shared storage.
