Hi Ryan!

Thanks for sharing on the Cow. I currently work for GB Labs, and have worked with and for many media workflow and shared storage manufacturers in the past. Including SNS, Quantum, Fibrenetix, XenData, ProMAX, Squarebox, and even more in the last 20 years. You have come to the right place for knowledge, there are some great folks here. Tom Grotting is actually one of our partners at GB Labs. Bob Zelin is a legend. I don't mean to leave any other hero's out, I've learned a ton here over the years.

Most smaller workgroups don't need a MAM, this is why we created Mosaic. It's a simple asset organisational tool, designed to help you work faster and easier. It's power lies in that it can easily read most of the metadata already contained in your files to help you organise. For example, want the stuff you just ingested, the NEW stuff, just go to our prebuilt new playlist and there it is, it's all based on dates. Wanna sort by location? We have geotagging built in. Of course you need to make sure the camera date is right! That's just the beginning though, we also give you an analysis engine that can search for images within the media, so you can go directly to the frame you need. Did I mention all this data can easily be exported to a MAM later on should your needs grow? You can of course, just import files directly from the storage into your NLE of choice. Our Ethos is to create solutions for the creative.

Our Pricing and Performance beat Lumaforge all day. For Example, FastNAS F16 NITRO MAX 192TB, 4x1Gbe, 2 x 10/40Gbe 155TB GB-FN-F16N-MAX-19200-1 $44,999 NEW 40Gbe + NITRO MAX
Last I checked this was 5K cheaper than Lumaforges similarly spec'd server.

We have been around for 20 years, and will be around another 20, and you can extend your warranty with us up to 8 years total.

We recently added back blaze and drop box integration as some customers don't want to deal with LTO, however LTO is still the cost leader in long term backup/archive/disaster recovery. When you say offsite I imagine you mean taking the tapes offsite, rather than the entire appliance right? Either way is cool, our LTO appliances can synchronise over the web if need be.

I'd love to hear more about your workflow and needs, when can we have a chat?
