DVS Presents New Storage Solution Features

DVS is presenting new features of its high-performance storage solutions at IBC 2011.

Both the SpycerBox Flex and the SpycerBox Ultra offer increased capacities - while DVS's Spycer content management system software will impress users with numerous innovative functions. 

IBC visitors to Stand 7.E25 discover how they can increase the integrity and stability of their workflows by using DVS storage systems. Both the SpycerBox and the DVS-SAN are flexible and integrate seamlessly into any storage environment. DVS storage solutions are well suited for the postproduction market and the broadcast arena. 

The central SpycerBox media hub, available in the versions SpycerBox Flex and SpycerBox Ultra, integrates into any storage environment with its countless optional interfaces. Right on time for IBC, SpycerBox Flex offers real-time support of five uncompressed 2K video streams in parallel. With a storage capacity of 43.2 TB, the compact "SAN in a box" offers all the functionality of a professional storage system, which is easy to administer thanks to a Single Point of Management.

The SpycerBox Ultra increases its capacity to 72TB and is perfect for use as a high-performance nearline storage solution. The special feature of the SpycerBox family lies in the fact that it can be integrated as a NAS or SAN configuration, or as a combination of the two, into existing storage architectures, providing users with a high-performance end-to-end solution that forms the core of their infrastructure. The SSD option for metadata storage accelerates file-system operations on the SpycerBox.

The DVS-SAN has a customizable configuration and high bit-rates. Its open structure allows all connected clients to access film and video data directly on the DVS-SAN. The latest version 2.2 of DVS's content management software Spycer also offers users countless new functions. For instance, users can individually configure the transfer speed to SAN and NAS systems. Furthermore, Spycer analyzes the consistency of the copied files and automatically repairs corrupt data. It also features the "read while record" function for different MXF formats.
