Accusys Introduces New ExaSAN PCIe2.0 Storage Solution Featuring SANit File System
Accusys introduced the ExaSAN SWF16 switch, the newest member of ExaSAN family of PCI Express 2.0 based storage and switches. It combines the features of a SAN switch and metadata server. The built-in MDC manages multiple PCIe2.0 RAID systems and multiple clients. Each client can share 20Gb/s bandwidth to process HD, 2K, even 4K format video streams.
SANit File System, the SAN management software, developed by Accusys is pre-installed in SWF16’s MDC. SANit provides major SAN features and user friendly graphic user interface, following ExaSAN’s “Easy to Deploy” tradition. For media and entertainment professionals, ExaSAN plus SANit lowers the amount of setup and maintenance required compared to traditional Fibre Channel or iSCSI SAN.
Shipping in volume since its announcement at NAB 2012 in Las Vegas, the A12S2-PS is a dedicated RAID solution based on high speed PCI Express 2.0 standards. At 20Gb/s, it fulfills almost all broadcast and post production film/video editing speed requirements.
Visit Accusys at IBC 2012 in Amsterdam at Booth 6.A20.
