NAB: Proavio previews storage arrays for video pros
At this week's National Association of Broadcasters expo, Proavio (http://www.proavio.com) announced the July release of the IS316JS and the EB400CR.
The IS316JS is a 16-drive direct attached storage array that combines a dual port, high-speed 6Gb/s SAS interface, professional grade redundant and hot-swappable components with a 12Gb/second storage expansion bus that lets you add multiple IS316JS arrays (up to 144TB). An optional PCI-Express RAID controller provides real time, fail-safe RAID protection against drive failure during operation.
The Proavio EB400CR is designed for file-based and DSLR workflows and features a built-in hardware storage controller that offers traditional RAID, JBOD and disk cloning (drive duplication) capabilities in a mobile-ready solution. It sports a multi-interface design, next generation USB 3.0 technology and a variety of user selectable storage modes (JBOD, RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-10, RAID-5, and Disk Clone).
