Small Tree's TitaniumZ Line of Shared Storage Systems Offers Maximum Performance for Adobe Anywhere Customers
Real-Time Video Editing Without Compromise
April 03, 2014 --
An all-in-one, real-time, Ethernet-based shared storage solution designed and optimized for the demanding needs of professional video editors requiring shared access to media files, Small Tree's TitaniumZ provides the ideal bandwidth performance and storage capacity required to support Adobe Anywhere, a collaborative workflow platform for enterprise-level video production.
When used in tandem with Adobe Anywhere, TitaniumZ offers users maximum performance, powerful collaboration, confidence in stability and scalability, simplified storage setup and real-time video editing without compromise, whether they are located within the same building or in another city. Easily scalable and capable of supporting up to 24 video editing workstations without needing an Ethernet switch, TitaniumZ can be configured up to 20 10GbE ports or 24 GbE ports with storage capacities (raw) from 10TB to 1PB (Petabyte).
TitaniumZ and Adobe Anywhere together allow video editors to access and process workgroup content from virtually any location where there is network connectivity - even if the throughput needed for tasks such as high-resolution, native codec editing is unavailable. Adobe Anywhere operates across standard networks and requires no proprietary hardware. For complete control and security, it is hosted on-premises with other enterprise media storage and asset management infrastructure. The solution includes the Adobe Mercury Streaming Engine, a new technology that dramatically alters the speed-quality tradeoff typically associated with distributed video workflows.
"Adobe Anywhere is breaking down barriers for enterprise editing teams so that they can create custom workflows and access media files no matter their geographical boundaries," said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. "Small Tree's TitaniumZ shared storage solution gives such teams greater flexibility and scalability without having to compromise on the quality of the finished product."
In addition to supporting the Adobe Mercury Streaming Engine, TitaniumZ connects directly to editing clients located inside the broadcast center. This high-performance mixed deployment simplifies implementation and eliminates the need to build and support separate storage systems.
