The Facilis Hub Server optimizes drive groups and increases the bandwidth available from standard TerraBlock storage systems. It gives new customers a way to scale bandwidth through dynamic aggregation, and current customers a way to extend the usable life of older systems.
New Hub Sever orders from around the world have come in as customers take advantage of the Hub Server’s ability to offload Shared File System processing and increase data resiliency. Just a few of the recent Hub Server installations include:
With speeds over 4GB/sec available from a single virtual project-based volume, Hub Server systems offer industry-leading capability. During development of the new Hub
Server, the Facilis team focused on broadcasters and facilities that were seeking to grow their content-creation infrastructure on a limited budget. A key design goal was to bring customers with existing TerraBlock shared storage into the future as well as those purchasing new systems.
“Ever increasing media file sizes with 4K and HDR workflows are continually putting pressure on facility infrastructure,” said James McKenna, VP of Marketing at Facilis Technology. “The Facilis Hub Server is focused on protecting customers’ current storage investment while providing the most future-proof new systems available.”
