About EditShare XStream EFS
New to EditShare’s shared storage product line, XStream EFS is the world’s most affordable enterprise-class, distributed and redundant “scale out” storage platform, offering unmatched performance and resiliency for real-time workflows. XStream EFS gives mission-critical media workgroups an open storage platform with smart collaboration features, such as project sharing, combined with blazing-fast performance, multiple levels of redundancy and tremendous scalability.
EditShare Founder and CEO, Andy Liebman, comments, “In addition to EditShare’s core high-bandwidth architecture, the new XStream EFS system offers multiple layers of redundancy that can tolerate the failure of multiple drives, even an entire node. With XStream EFS, you have an intelligent, highly scalable media storage platform that’s rock-solid and affordable – the best of all worlds.”
Based on EditShare’s proven media management tools, the new EditShare XStream EFS solution was specially architected to support high-bandwidth, high-volume media ingest, transcoding, online collaborative editing and multiplatform distribution of HD, 2K, 4K and beyond. Whenever a file is written to an EFS system, pieces of the data – along with a second level of redundancy information – are spread across multiple nodes ensuring users get the combined speed of the nodes, plus extra file protection security. The High Availability architecture offers advanced redundancy and data protection features at multiple levels, including redundant metadata controllers, ensuring work continues irrespective of a hardware failure. Flexible storage capacity configuration options let facilities build storage systems from under 100 TB all the way up to five Petabytes.
