IBC 2014: R&S storage solutions offer maximum performance and capacity
September 02, 2014 --
Instead of the usual 24 disks, the new R&S SpycerBox Ultra TL now has 48 SATA drives each with 6 TB of storage capacity ? equaling 288 TB of capacity in a 4U chassis. The cost-efficient nearline solution comes equipped with dual 10 GigE interfaces as standard, making it perfect especially for mastering environments. The R&S SpycerBox family's high levels of performance and robustness are known across the industry. It is available in different versions and integrates seamlessly into any NAS or SAN storage infrastructure thanks to its vast array of optional interfaces.
Boasting 36 TB in just a single 1U chassis, R&S SpycerBox Cell represents an exceptional combination of performance and functionality. In this regard, the system's scalability plays a key role ? followed by a data throughput of up to 3 GB/s per unit and maximum reliability thanks to a unique failover system. R&S SpycerBox Cell is an excellent solution when rack-space restrictions and energy saving requirements are key considerations.
The devices from the R&S SpycerBox family are all equipped with web-based management software. The SAN Remo GUI makes it easy and straightforward for users to configure their hardware and software components ? SAN Remo also enables the devices to be easily configured in clusters, allowing system-status monitoring as well as performance- and bandwidth-statistic analysis.
Jorge Ríos, Product Manager Storage Solutions at Rohde & Schwarz DVS: "With our latest developments, we are giving our post and TV-production customers a decisive technical edge. In turn, this further differentiates them from their competitors. With 288 TB of capacity, SpycerBox Ultra TL is an extremely powerful nearline storage solution. And in the case of SpycerBox Cell, customers will benefit from maximum storage density and robustness combined with easy scalability and redundancy."
