EditShare XStream EFS 450 is a powerful distributed scale-out storage platform developed for the most intensive media workflows. It's designed from the ground up to support resilient large-scale workgroups requiring high-bandwidth, high-volume media ingest, transcoding, online collaborative editing and multiplatform distribution of HD, 2k, 4k and beyond.
Performance and resiliency
The XStream EFS 450 system is the original storage platform of the EditShare File System (EFS) family. EFS is uniquely tailored for intensive media environments with key benefits including one namespace that eliminates management of multiple storage volumes, Native Client drivers for improved bandwidth performance, plus ‘SwiftRead’ data contention management.
Expanding an XStream EFS 450 system is as simple as adding a new node and clicking a few buttons on a web page. In the background, pieces of data are immediately re-distributed until each node has roughly the same amount of free space.
Accelerates collaborative media workflows
XStream EFS 450 is designed from the ground up to support end-to-end media workflows, providing ‘best in class’ scale-out shared storage.
Like all EditShare storage systems, XStream EFS 450 is simple to use and manage. With just a few clicks in the EditShare Manager administration tool, users can create dedicated “spaces” for different projects, expand or contract the size of those spaces on the fly (up to the total size of the storage), and of course, set user and group rights.
Advanced file system features for any environment
While the XStream EFS 450 system was designed specifically with media production in mind, in truth it's a great solution for any other environment that needs scale-out storage – whether that's a research laboratory, a cloud service provider
