Comprehensive M&E Storage Solutions

Infortrend offers comprehensive storage solutions for today’s Media and Entertainment industry that processes 4K and above ultra-high definition media footages with industry leading media editing software – Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve. The EonStor GS and GSe (GS and GSe) fulfills the need for small workgroups and post production studios within 10 workstations, while the new EonStor CS (CS) scale-out storage system targets at larger-scale workgroups and post production studios with more than 10 workstations and with a growing business.

GS, GSe and CS are enterprise-level storage systems with the support of Infortrend’s graphical management software—EonOne. With pre-installed DaVinci Resolve project server, editors can easily perform collaborative media editing simultaneously. They also support EonView for Windows and macOS workstations that helps the video editing team to connect the workstations with storage systems and mount shared network storage as a local drive. GS, GSe and CS are the ideal shared storage for your media workloads.


For Small Workgroups

GSe is a single controller shared storage solution with high capacity nearline drives or all-flash configurations exclusively designed for media and entertainment industry. Its hardware design features 3U 16-bay and 4U 24-bay form factors, flexible host board options, and stable, reliable modular design with high expandability.

GS inherits the GSe product line as a dual-controller shared storage designed for high availability solution with active-standby configuration that eliminates the system downtime for mission-critical projects. GS offers corresponding redundant models for GSe product line to meet a variety of requirements.

Infortrend delivers a three-tier solution for the GS/GSe family, namely 2000T, 3000 Gen2 and 4000 Gen2. 2000T is the most cost-effective solution that supports 13 4K video streams. As the best price/performance resolution, 3000 Gen2 supports 18 4K video streams; while 4000 Gen2 is the ultra high performance solution that supports 26 4K video streams.

For Large-scale and Business-growing Workgroups

As businesses grow, storage capacity and bandwidth might not be able to keep up with the growing requirements. CS, however, allows users to add more nodes into the cluster to increase capacity and performance without interrupting the system operation. By providing up to 100+ GB/s read/write throughput and 100+ PB capacity, CS can easily meet the requirements of your massive media workloads.

EonOne – An intuitive Storage Management Software

EonOne is a storage management tool that complements well with EonStor GS, GSe, and CS. Infortrend offers two accounts for different management purposes. One account is for M&E User Administrator, who is in charge of users account and storage quota management. EonOne also offers a setup wizard to help the user administrator easily set up storage and network. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to manage user access credentials and shared folders. The other account is for System Administrator who can do advanced storage configurations, data services settings, and maintenance.

EonView – A smart client utility software for easy file sharing

EonView is a client-based utility for Windows and macOS workstations. Once connected to GS/GSe/CS, the clients installed with EonView can automatically detect the IP address of the GS/GSe/CS, then they will identify the user credentials, and the assigned shared folders for each editor are automatically mounted. This step simplifies the complexities of storage system deployment and network settings, and therefore allows users to focus on video editing and creation.

DaVinci Resolve Project Server

Generally, to achieve collaborative editing via DaVinci Resolve, it requires a dedicated workstation to work as project server, which connects to other workstations in peer-to-peer network topology to enable project collaboration. However, when a single point of failure or server shutdown occurs, the project will be interrupted. To overcome the problem, Infortrend integrates DaVinci Resolve Project Server into GS/GSe/CS, and provides RAID protection and dual controller redundancy (GS) to deliver high availability. Users can edit videos collaboratively when the workstations are connected to the GS/GSe/CS, increasing project production efficiency.


Performance

GS/GSe offers hybrid and all flash configurations to fulfill different application requirements. The maximum CIFS performance can reach 6,600/3,100 MB/s. For details, refer to the table below.
