Chatsworth, CA (May 13, 2010)–Globalstor Data has launched its FibreStor storage system, a portable, five-drive tower with a single 4 GB host connection.
The unit is targeted for high-throughput professional audio applications, video editing, transporting data between facilities and other activities requiring a small, portable, fiber-channel storage solution.
Comprising five Enterprise Class SATA disk drives or optional solid-state drives and a single 4 GBps fiber-channel host interface, this desktop array has a capacity of up to 10 TB storage with more than 20 hours of uncompressed, 10-bit HD video footage. As such, FibreStor can support real-time HD and SD applications, including single 10-bit 1080i HD.
“Globalstor has always been at the forefront of developing solutions that make storage as efficient and easy as possible for the end-user, and FibreStor is the latest example of this,” says Globalstor president Scott Leif. “This portable Fibre Channel system offers the same great benefits of larger storage solutions, including the ability to process HD and SD video files and a high-storage capacity, so it’s perfect for onset and other types of applications that require fast access to storage in a small footprint.”
