Proavio Introduces New Versatile IP-SAN Storage for Pro Audio and Video NetworksNew IP-SAN Storage Appliances Streamline Storage Consolidation for the Studio (December 12, 2006) PROAVIO, a leading developer of storage systems and tools for digital media production, announced the release of ULTRASTOR RS8-IP and RS16-IP, the first affordable iSCSI target appliance designed for cross-platform network storage provisioning & centralization.
Proavio will offer RS8-IP, a compact eight-bay, RAID-protected IP-SAN target with up to 5.2 Terabytes of high performance 3Gb SATA storage and RS16-IP, a 16-bay, RAID-protected IP-SAN target with up to 11.2 Terabytes of high performance 3Gb SATA storage. Both systems include Enhance Technologys award-winning RAID controller technology, and offer the same enterprise-class features as the companys ULTRASTOR RAID line.
Proavios new systems offer studios an easy-to-use, centralized solution designed for implementation in IP-SAN applications such as server & workstation storage consolidation as well as allocating & provisioning local volumes based on available capacity, and running file-sharing networks. By employing the Gigabit-based iSCSI protocol, Proavio has created a powerful, yet easy-to-use target solution that can dramatically reduce the costs associated with adding dedicated local storage to a multi-room facility. Gigabit connectivity means users do not have to make an additional investment in hardware since most facilities will already have the necessary network infrastructure. A web-based UI streamlines the simplicity of the systems management features, while an embedded RAID controller allows administrators to dial in just the right RAID level for any application.
One major advantage of the RS-IP line of products is the ability to simultaneous offer fully RAID-protected local volumes, to Mac & Windows-based environments through standard Gigabit network. Studio administrators can easily create a simple storage area network that offers block-level access to storage, ideal for addressing audio workstations, virtual samplers, software synthesizers, sound effects libraries and broadcast servers running Mac or Windows operating systems.
