Visual FX applications are IO intensive but that doesn’t impact BrickStor in the same way it does other storage arrays because of its hybrid architecture. BrickStor services a majority of IO requests in this environment from RAM with sub-microsecond latency. BrickStor’s graphical performance monitoring allows admins to view the impact of applications and operations on the storage so admins know when its time to scale up and out. BrickStor’s combination of RAM, NAND, and Hard Drives make it the most performant and cost effective data storage solution.
Rendering creates a bursty high random IO workload on data storage. BrickStor’s architecture is perfect for delivering low latency IO to multiple concurrent render jobs. Handle more simultaneous jobs and complete them sooner with BrickStor’s software defined hybrid storage architecture which leverages massive amounts of RAM as your primary cache and eliminates hot block bottlenecks. BrickStor’s unified storage architecture allows render nodes to connect via AFP, SMB, NFS or iSCSI to best support the organization’s unique setup and workflow.
As high definition video resolution continues to grow from 4K to 6K and now 8K it is critical to use a storage solution that is scalable, cost effective, and simple to manage without a dedicated staff. BrickStor is that solution, delivering simple cloud connected storage with effortless data backup and retrieval. BrickStor’s generation 3 12Gb SAS architecture delivers more bandwidth to each disk – ensuring that bandwidth is available to support more concurrent video streams.
BrickStor’s unified storage solution provides high performance storage for both streaming and random IO workloads. BrickStor uniquely supports Apple File Protocol, SMB, NFS, and iSCSI. Our team has extensive experience working with our customers who leverage all of the popular editing suites. BrickStor delivers high performance storage and data management to increase productivity by eliminating user waiting and downtime while providing greater system visibility to admins.
BrickStor is an energy, space, and cost efficient solution for data archival. BrickStor’s cloud connectivity enables users to push data to the cloud with predictive costs as well as easy retrieval and distribution to content delivery networks. Data Protection policies enable customers to define snapshot frequency, retention, and replication policies by dataset for effortless data protection and archive. Every BrickStor comes with free cloud storage capacity.
myRack’s forecasting capabilities make it easy to predict when we would need to scale up, and versioning helps control data sprawl during the collaboration process.
