High-Speed, External RAID for Video Editing Applications
G-SPEED eS external RAID solutions provide professional content creators with outstanding performance, high storage capacity and fail- safe operation at an unprecedented low cost per gigabyte. The compact and whisper quiet G-SPEED eS sports a 3Gbit eSATA interface and features four hot- swappable Ultrastar 7200 RPM SATA drives. When used with the G-Technology PCIe 4x RAID controller, a single G-SPEED eS supports up to (4) simultaneous streams of ProRes422 HQ or (1) stream of uncompressed 1080/60i. As many as four G-SPEED eS enclosures can be attached to a single workstation providing up to 64TB of high-performance RAID protected storage. The G-Technology PCIe 4x RAID controller supports RAID 0, 1, 5 and JBOD, and is configured and monitored via a full featured web GUI. Storage for multi-stream compressed HD production has never been easier or more affordable!
When used with the G-Technology PCIe x4 RAID controller (sold separately), G-SPEED eS can easily be configured as a RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 or as a JBOD. This flexibility enables the system to be tuned to the required level of performance and fault-tolerance necessary to support your application. G-SPEED eS can also be set up as a software RAID or JBOD when used with third party port multiplier aware eSATA host adapters.
Easy to Setup
The G-Techology PCIe x4 RAID controller has a built-in Web GUI that is accessed via any local internet browser. This simple GUI is used to configure and monitor the RAID system. Many aspects of the system are monitored and in the event of a problem, G-SPEED eS can send an email message to you alerting you of trouble.
