EditShare launches ESA - Extreme Scalable ArchitectureAllows customers to increase their storage to hundreds of terabytes and beyond (May 04, 2006)
EditShare, the pioneer of cross platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, today announced EditShare ESA - a new architecture that allows customers to increase their storage to hundreds of terabytes and beyond. All EditShare systems will include ESA starting with Version 4.0 which begins shipping late May 2006.
With ESA, additional "expansion servers" can simply be plugged into existing EditShare networks. The first EditShare is configured as a "super server" that can then manage an unlimited number of "expansion servers". Administrators manage all storage through a single unified GUI and due to EditShare version 4.0's new Windows and Mac OS X Login Clients, users will not be aware that there are multiple servers on the network.
The ESA system design has been created to allow customers to keep up with their storage requirements and at the same time increase the total number of users who can work from their centralized storage. Unlike expansion solutions that simply attach additional storage to a single server, each EditShare expansion server is a powerful full-fledged server with its own independent pathway to the network -- so data bottlenecks won't grow as storage increases. In addition with EditShare ESA, users will also have the option of mirroring entire Media Spaces on a separate server to create an unbeatable failover for critical data.
Andy Liebman, founder and CEO of EditShare comments; "Our customers want the assurance that their storage can scale up when necessary in a simple, cost-effective way and this is what EditShare ESA provides."
Pricing and availability
The EditShare ESA will be available to EditShare version 4.0 users from May 2006.
