CoreStor arrays offer fast, flexible shared storage environment tailored to the requirements of the M&E industry and large volumes of digital content files. CoreStor delivers high performance capabilities, thin provisioning, data deduplication, snapshots, replication, cloning, and enterprise class data integrity for post-production tasks.
Hybrid storage pools for more efficient storing and retrieving of digital assets on-demand.
By holding copies of frequently-used data on ultra-fast SSDs and storing less frequently-used data on dense, yet cost-effective, HDD drives, hybrid storage pools accelerate sequential reads enabling faster data processing during post-production, increasing the productivity of video professionals. CoreStor arrays intelligently combine DRAM, flash, and hard disk drives into a hybrid pool to reduce both read and write latency accelerating post production workflow.
Self-healing system immune from silent data corruption.
One of the challenges faced by post production professionals is silent data corruption. With potentially catastrophic consequences, it can interrupt the workflow, delay project deadlines and result in devastating losses. CoreStor preserves the creativity of the media professionals by offering unmatched data integrity and automatic self healing. Using copy on write and checksums CoreStor arrays detect and correct data corruption in ways not possible with traditional systems, ensuring the highest levels of reliability and data integrity for digital media applications.
File-compression and data deduplication to save valuable storage space.
Deduplication is one of the enterprise grade capabilities that can offer significant space savings. CoreStor arrays provide efficient archiving with inline deduplication placing no limits on the amount of data, scaling to any capacity on any platform. It saves space and unnecessary I/O operations leading to improved performance.
Limitless and instant backups.
One of the notable features offered by CoreStor is the ability to create unlimited snapshots. An ever better one is the ability to send those snapshots to a different machine. But the greatest of all is the fact that one can send incremental snapshots. A snapshot is an exact copy of the file system as it existed at the time the snapshot was created. They can be used daily, hourly, or however often one needs to store only things that changed since the previous snapshot, using very little space and bandwidth for incremental backup that is instantly ready for access. CoreStor offers unlimited snapshot capabilities to ensure recovery of digital content in the event of system failure. Snapshots can be created almost instantly to make a point-of-time backup enabling easy recovery.
Tailored for frequent storage and retrieval.
High-performance 40 Gbit Infiniband and multiple dedicated 10 Gbit Ethernet channels for networking offer improved bandwidth for jitter-free editing of full-frame, 10-bit, 4:2:2 and 4:4:4:4 high-definition (HD), 2K, 4K, and 5K video sources with multistream performance or background video archiving across multiple locations.
Future proofed post production workflows.
CoreStor arrays are highly scalable and integrate seamlessly into any network and can be expanded at any time via SAS JBOD enclosures allowing capacity to be added easily and inexpensively when needed.
No proprietary lock-in.
CoreStor is vendor neutral and offers high degree of hardware upgradeability. Simply put – we never hold your data hostage! Any data stored, replicated, snapshotted, or backed up, can be restored or moved to another system. We just don’t think you would ever want to.
