Accelerating Media Workflows With All Flash Drives

EditStor Velo Flash takes collaborative media storage to an exciting new level. By delivering the high performance of all Flash at reasonable cost, creative professionals can finally afford one central storage system for their entire media workflow. EditStor Velo Flash goes far beyond high speeds and affordability; it’s just as much the broad functionality, high scalability and overall simplicity that makes this NAS an easy choice. From ingest to archive, it’s done in a Flash with Velo Flash.

With up to 11,000 MB/second from a single 16 bay chassis and the ability to expand with SSD or HDD expansion chassis, 4K and 8K worries are a thing of the past. EditStor Velo Flash delivers these high speeds in multi-write modes supporting as many as 40 UltraHD 4k streams in a collaborative environment. All media professionals 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 EditStor Velo. 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 Flash provides the essential networking. While two (2) 40GigE ports is standard on EditStor Velo, you can now directly connect up to 16 workstations, via 40gigE, 10GigE or GigE.

The flexibility of EditStor Velo Flash is truly unmatched for media workflows. With a comprehensive, yet easy to use GUI, connecting up an unlimited number Windows, Macintosh and Linux clients is simple; there are no drivers, installers or client licenses required. EditStor Velo Flash 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 servers or asset management systems.

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. This volume and storage expansion is all managed through a web based administrator interface without impacting the workflow. In addition, EditStor Velo Flash 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. Archion also extends sharing to projects with the APS Shareconnector™ Tool.

When it comes to the copy, migration and back up of your media, EditStor Velo Flash 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. EditStor Velo Flash automates the back up of media to tape as well as the retrieval of media from tape.
