    Facilis Technology Demonstrates New 64bit Terra

    September 11, 2010, 1:13 pm
    Hudson, Mass, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands, September 10, 2010 – Facilis Technology, a leader in shared media storage technology for post-production and content creation, today announced new hardware and operating system for TerraBlock shared storage systems. The 64bit operating system, as well as high performance SAS controllers, adds to the available bandwidth for multi-stream uncompressed and 2K/4K DI workflow.

    See Extreme Multi-user Write Performance Over 8Gbit Fibre and 10Gbit Ethernet







    Hudson, Mass, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands, September 10, 2010 – Facilis Technology, a leader in shared media storage technology for post-production and content creation, today announced new hardware and operating system for TerraBlock shared storage systems. The 64bit operating system, as well as high performance SAS controllers, adds to the available bandwidth for multi-stream uncompressed and 2K/4K DI workflow.





    TerraBlock now supports 10Gbit Ethernet for access to Multi-user Write volumes. This more than doubles the stream count for Ethernet clients on the Facilis Shared File System network when aggregating multiple 1Gbit clients.




    Key features of TerraBlock shared storage now include:


    ? Dynamic sharing methods of Multi-user Write (file-level) and Single-user Write (volume-level), selectable on a per-virtual volume basis


    ? Access to virtual volumes over 8Gbit fibre channel or 1Gbit Ethernet with 10Gbit uplink


    ? Avid media and project sharing through native file system emulation


    ? Single-user Write volumes that support up to 4K uncompressed bandwidth





    "The move from an analogue to a tapeless workflow requires robust, fast, and flexible storage," said Ken Bell, MD at QuadLogic, European partners for TerraBlock. "Whether delivering uncompressed HD or DV over fibre or Ethernet to Mac and PC platforms, Facilis TerraBlock does it simply and performs as promised. With such pedigree it is an obvious choice in the broadcast and post-production market."





    Additionally, to help meet the ongoing demand for low-cost storage, Facilis will be showing the T8, a new SAS direct-attached storage option. This product will feature dual-channel 3Gbit connectivity using the ATTO ExpressSAS R380 adapter, and is qualified for multi-stream HD or 2K DPX applications.





    Facilis TerraBlock will be at IBC, September 9-14, stand 7.D05. TerraBlock with 64bit OS and 10Gbit Ethernet is currently shipping. For pricing and availability, please contact QuadLogic at info@quadlogic.co.uk. Visit Quad Logic Systems at the Facilis TerraBlock stand 7.D05.

      My Thoughts on Apples New MacPro

      June 5, 2019, 12:21 pm
      We’ve all been waiting a long time for the new Mac Pro to be announced, and this week Apple finally delivered one. And while it certainly impressed many of us (myself included), there was also the inevitable pushback from those who felt the new machine was just too rich for their blood.

      The new MacPro – we need to talk

      June 4, 2019, 6:45 am
      So Apple announced the new MacPro yesterday. At a first glance, I have to admit, I was impressed. After all these years, where Apple seems to have abandoned the pro community, they finally listened, got their shit together and provided something, that seems to check all the boxes of the wish list. But on a second thought, it doesn’t look so good anymore.
