Infortrend’s Cluster File System Appeals to VARs of Media Solutions

The system is built on the network storage company’s Enterprise Scalable Virtualized Architecture, providing SMBs with high-speed file access, sharing, and data storage.

Networked storage innovator Infortrend has rolled out its new ESVA Cluster File System solution. The system is designed to deliver high-speed file access, sharing, and data storage.

Built around Infortrend’s Enterprise Scalable Virtualized Architecture (ESVA), the Cluster File System offers support for Windows, Mac, and Linux clients. The company says the new system is “ideal for media/entertainment and high-performance computing applications.”

Media and entertainment applications often have highly specialized requirements, and need an IT infrastructure that enables simultaneous non-linear editing of recorded content by multiple users. Moreover, an SMB’s media infrastructure must provide plenty of bandwidth to meet the demand of HD and SD content as well as scalability features to accommodate data growth.

Infortrend’s ESVA Cluster File System is designed to meet those needs. At a 2K frame size and with a frame rate of 23.98fps, the system can reach a Read capability of 78 streams and a Write capability of 39 streams when processing 10-bit RGB non-compressed video content. In addition, capacity can be expanded up to 4PB.

The computing power offered by the clustered structure makes it ideal for HPC applications. The solution can reach a Read performance of up to 24,000 MB/s and a Write performance of up to 12,000 MB/s, enabling it to meet the requirements of some of the most demanding application environments.

The ESVA Cluster File System solutions consists of ESVA storage arrays, two metadata servers, one LAN gateway server, and system agents. Three types of host connectivity are available for the storage arrays, including 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel (FC), 1 GbE iSCSI and 10 GbE iSCSI.

Metadata servers enable data sharing for SAN-based systems and the LAN gateway server enables data sharing for LAN-based systems, while the agent facilitates communication between clients and the servers.

“This comprehensive solution enables users to record, edit, broadcast, and store their content without having to piece together a solution from different vendors,” explains Thomas Kao, Infortrend’s director of product planning.††
