Anything new or storage at NAB?
on Apr 12, 2011 at 9:22:30 am

Didn't make it eventually.

Anyone see anything dramatically new for storage, at NAB? Maybe a 'Thunderbolt SAN'? Or even standalone Thunderbolt storage apart from the Promise box?

Matrix made an announcement on Thunderbolt support for all their MXO2 products. There's mention of a 'Thunderbolt adapter', presumably to interface older eSASA storage operating off the ExpressCard on older MacBook Pros.

There are no "Thunderbolt" SAN systems.

Maxx Digital showed 10Gig ethernet SAN. So did Small Tree.
And AVID ISIS 5000 is fantastic.

Things are getting better, faster and cheaper. The new Maxx Digital 16 bay drive arrays are
operating at 1600MB/sec read speed, using the new Hitachi 3TB disk drives.

Promise announced a Thunderbolt Fibre Channel HBA. Whenever the iMac and Mac mini get Thunderbolt, such an adapter would allow them to be Xsan clients.

Best,

Mark,

The MINUTE I saw the details on Thunderbolt the day it was announced, I immediately lost all my lingering angst about the demise of the Xserve. Imagine, a Mac mini server with essentially PCIe, capacity for 16GB RAM, a quad core i7, all under 100 Watts and for a fraction of the old Xserve's price!

Now we just Apple to release it!

Best,
Andy

Hm, what about a macbook pro as MDC? It's got a battery so it can handle power outages without a problem!

Heh, true, but that won't do your RAIDs and switchgear any good. :-)

Best,
Andy
