Oakdale, MN (January 12, 2010)--Small Tree's newest version of its GraniteSTOR abcSAN for Pro Tools users will be introduced at Macworld 2010 (San Francisco, February 9 - 13).
Utilizing iSCSI technology, GraniteSTOR abcSAN offers Pro Tools users working on Mac Pro systems real-time performance over Ethernet cable for as low as $750 a terabyte.
"Prior to the introduction of GraniteSTOR abcSAN, professional audio studios facing bottleneck issues would need to purchase a storage system as well as a PCIe expander to improve their system's performance," said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. "With our iSCSI-based Ethernet storage system, which is faster than Firewire 800 and USB, Mac Pro users can now have a shared storage solution with RAID protection for all their data. That will improve workflow, thereby enabling the completion of projects on time and under budget."
Providing performance for up to 96 audio tracks at 96 kHz, GraniteSTOR abcSAN is deployable as either a NAS or a SAN solution and is available in 6 TB, 12 TB or 24 TB configurations.
