Proavio to Debut New Line of 4Gb Fibre Channel Storage Solutions at NAB
Proavio, U.S.A., a leading developer of storage systems and tools for digital media production, has announced today that it will be exhibiting a completely new line of 4Gb Fibre Channel storage solutions designed to accommodate the needs of growing digital cinema storage requirements. Building on popularity of it’s award-winning SCSI RAID controller technology, Proavio has developed a next generation RAID controller that raises the industry bar for maximum performance and features. By leveraging over 10 years of development experience and utilizing the maximum capabilities of the RAID engine, Proavio has created the first large-format Fibre Channel array that exploits the full potential of a typical 4Gb Fibre equipped desktop computer. “We are very excited to announce the first affordable 4Gb product that simplifies the deployment process and offers full advantage of the native MPIO (Multi-Path I/O) capabilities found in Mac OSX” said Luis Rodriguez, Director of Marketing for Proavio. With the addition of native MPIO support, users can easily achieve sustained data rates in excess of 600MB/s with RAID-5 parity protection, ideal for uncompressed 4:4:4 HD video, digital intermediate and high resolution visual effects creation. Proavio has included every feature found in their Enterprise-class products including fully redundant hot-swap PSUs, cross-platform web-based management, hot-swappable cooling modules & disks and a modularized RAID controller that allows for easy replacement in the field. The new Fibre storage line will carry a standard 3-year warranty with optional on-site warranty programs available.
RS16FS is a rack-ready 3U, sixteen-disk, 4Gb Fibre to SATA disk array with a next generation RAID processor that sets new standards in performance and reliability. A dual SFP design allows full use of native Multi-Path capabilities in Mac OS X and can deliver an excess of 600MB/s when configured in RAID-5 protection. Industry standard SFP Fibre ports support active optical configurations for direct-attached or network deployments. An easy to use browser-based interface allows complete storage control and monitoring from any workstation on the network. Standard features include modular, hot-swap PSU, cooling and disks. RS16FS compliments any high-resolution creation platform; including systems by Autodesk, Apple, Avid, Bluefish444, Grass Valley and Matrox. RS16FS is compatible with both Mac OS and Windows OS.
Proavio designs and manufactures high performance storage systems and products for the digital content creation, post production and broadcast markets. Product line includes Ultra320 SCSI, 3Gb SAS/SATA, 4Gb Fibre Channel, desktop FireWire and IP-SAN storage.
