Kool Tools: Proavio DS240 storage solutions for 4K video


Proavio's new DS240 dual-active storage platform and "ultra dense" JBOD systems are worth a look if you're into 4K cinema production. The DS240 series expands Proavio’s professional DS platform with 2.5-inch Enterprise SAS SSD and 10K SAS drive solutions.

The DS240 combines a compact 2U, 24-disk design with Proavio’s 8Gb/s Fibre Channel and 6Gb/s SAS hardware technologies in a solid state storage solution for editing, color-grading, VFX and broadcast requirements. It delivers excellent sustained sequential performance when used with editing, grading and VFX systems as well as accelerated random I/O capabilities for use in shared storage configurations or mixed-load SAN applications.

Optimized for 4K production use, the DS240 provides a total of eight 8Gb/s Fibre Channel ports resulting in real-world performance of over 3,500MB/s from a single storage array. By leveraging Enterprise 10K SAS hard drives, the DS240 offers a lower cost per terabyte without compromising performance.

The Proavio DS240 features dual 8-port, 8Gb/s Fibre Channel storage controllers running in active-active performance mode for high resolution 4K/5K capture, editing, grading and visual effects creation. It's a VMware VSphere 5 certified solution for seamless integration with virtual and cloud computing environments. With it you can improve physical server performance while accelerating applications and VDI with high I/O SAS SSD storage.

The DS240 is available in capacities starting at 19TB up to 38TB, expandable up to 190TB using affordable DS240 SAS JBOD enclosures. DS240 storage systems feature a 3-year factory warranty and include free advance replacement of disk drives and components for the first year of ownership, with the option to purchase an additional two year advance replacement warranty.

The DS240 is recommended for use with Davinci Resolve, Filmlight, Assimilate Scratch, Autodesk and Digital Vision workflows. Go to www.proavio.com for more info.
