SANTA ANA, CALIF.— ProMAX Systems has added to its Platform shared storage server line.
Platform’s latest innovations represent a progression by expanding upon the existing Platform Online and Platform Studio lines with a new Platform Nearline storage system that is intended for disk-based back up. In addition to new hardware options, software developments have increased the functionality of every Platform system by adding features previously found only in the enterprise storage sector. Each system is engineered to deliver performance to video-post workflows, with capacities from 8 Terabytes to 512 Petabytes.
This new Platform Series offers a combination of perceptive functions and multi-location data management controls that are easy to use for workgroups.
With the new Platform models, ProMAX has developed workflow solutions in several multi-tiered shared storage management, enterprise scalability, workflow automation and media management and expanded performance monitoring controls.
ProMAX has also amplified Platform’s scalability and expandability. Smaller workgroups, and those with portable requirements, are a great fit for ProMAX’s on-set solution, Platform Studio. Single Platform systems that expand up to 256 TB, meet the needs for most mid-sized facilities, and the new Platform Nearline series fulfills the extensive resource demands of enterprise operations. Platform Nearline models offer the ability to install multiple, synchronized Platforms across several locations, with automated data management capabilities and multi-tiered storage deployments.
The new features include improved streaming bandwidth by up to 20 percent for Platform servers; nearline storage servers with up to 144TB per unit offers dense and less costly Tier 2 storage options; data replication provides continuous, two-way updates of media between servers; conflict manager, which references who’s using specific files for faster resolution; group; bandwidth controls; verified high-bandwidth data copies and data moves; and real-time integration with active directory for making instant modifications to users and permissions.
