1 Beyond Announces EzHDSAN
Easily installed system offers up to 96TBs of RAID 6 protected storage; allows multi-stream, real-time HD editing for up to 14 simultaneous users; pricing starts at $8,995
The 1 Beyond EzHDSANÃ¢Â„Â¢ is available as a completely pre-configured and tested turnkey solution. It requires no technical knowledge, no intermediate switches, complicated wiring or Fibre Optics. It can be installed by an operator in a matter of minutes by loading a simple driver on each workstation and connecting one standard Ethernet cable between the computer and the SAN.
It is designed to handle from 6 to 14 users/workstations, and can also be connected to a company’s Local Area Network (Ethernet), allowing an unlimited number of authorized users to store and retrieve data at very high bandwidth.
1 Beyond’s new EzHDSAN also features RAID 6 (or dual RAID 6) protection, allowing for 2 (or 4) disk failures without experiencing any data loss. It also has the ability to define Hot Standby disks to automatically replace any failed disks 24/7 without intervention. Featuring predictive failure technology, the EzHDSAN continually monitors data disk performance. Should any parameters deviate from the acceptable norm, or should there be a failure, the EzHDSAN can send a warning email to 3 separate parties. In turn, the disk controller and individual drives can be interrogated remotely through a separate Ethernet port without disturbing users or disrupting their work, so that maintenance can be performed at the appropriate time, thereby greatly increasing efficiency.
