Chatsworth, CA (January 12, 2007)–Globalstor Data Corporation, an OEM Integrator of high performance RAID, SAN and storage/video servers, has introduced the iTrax, with a wide range of servers designed and optimized for every level of professional audio recording.
Built on the same solid foundation the ExtremeStor series of high-end servers was developed under, with a solid state 64-bit iSCSI + NAS operating system, the iTrax extends Globalstor’s popular line of ExtremeStor products by offering multi-room recording facilities a flexible, secure and competitively-priced solution that allows multi-user access to consolidated, centralized and fully searchable data.
“With the ExtremeStor-iTrax, Globalstor introduces the same technology used by Jet Propulsion Labs and NASA to professional audio recording,” said Scott Leif, president of Globalstor Data. “Our development of iSCSI- and NAS-based solutions has opened new doors in the production, organization and storage of the music industry’s singular asset. The evolution of recording facilities–both commercial and private–has been set in motion with iTrax.”
Using an iSCSI initiator, the iTrax appears as a local disc drive on any computer connected to the LAN or WAN. Windows users can download the free Windows iSCSI initiator offered by Microsoft. Globalstor solutions can also be used as NAS (Network Attached Storage) servers in conjunction with iSCSI.
Once iSCSI initiators are loaded, every host system on the network can see and share all stored data. Engineers on separate workstations can simultaneously edit and mix different sessions stored on any iTrax server.
With the iTrax, audio professionals have centralized storage and retrieval of multiple sessions at their fingertips. In addition, users can remotely log into sessions from anywhere in the world using any Internet Protocol-based GUI.
iTrax servers will be available in various configurations, ranging from an 8-drive solution with RAID protection on board to a 36-drive version with multiple levels of RAID redundancy on board.
