Enterprise File System
HyperFS integrates high-performance SAN, NAS
and data protection under one global namespace.
No Per Seat Client Cost
Based on concurrent RAID performance, connectivity,
bandwidth, drive count and user requirements
Simple Connectivity
Plug-and-play with easy connectivity options that can
be mixed and matched to support 8/16Gbit FC,
1/10/40Gbit Ethernet or iSCSI
Real-time Initiator
Admin can assign guaranteed bandwidth based on
user requirements with block level connected clients
Real-time Latency Enhancements
with Zero Impact Rebuild
Skip the two slowest drives on read requests, so each
user gets smoother playback while also locating slow
drives, with rebuilds not affecting performance
No MDC or Switches
Reduces the need for additional servers and connectivity,
thereby making storage simpler and more cost effective
Scalable Performance for CM&E
1600-3400MB/s for single appliance and scalable to
over 10GB/s with on-the-fly HyperFS expansion
Works with
Mac, Windows, and Linux
Network Storage Appliance
Genesis Unlimited is a network storage appliance designed
for digital media applications and workflows.
