Ciprico Unveils MediaVault 5100 Storage Solution at IBC

IBC 2007, Amsterdam - Ciprico Inc. has unveiled its new MediaVault 5100 direct attached storage solution for content creation during IBC 2007.
MediaVault 5100 offers performance tailored for content creation, CGI, 2D/3D animation, high-bandwidth uncompressed SD/HD video editing, video streaming, and 2K and 4K digital intermediate applications.  

The high-performance solution boasts the PCIe bus architecture and delivers five times the data rate of 4G Fibre Channel solutions. It is designed to offer massive throughput performance, as well as unmatched reliability and low-latency buffering.  
The MV5100 is the industry's first 8- (MV5108) or 16- (MV5116) drive PCIe storage array based on the new PCIe external expansion and cable connection standard.  It enables the user to choose between SATA drives (inexpensive, highly scalable) and SAS drives (for utmost performance and security) according to particular user needs. This flexibility allows for low initial costs and great overall returns on investment in the long-term.  
The solution also features robust data protection. A host-based management utility provides detailed local and remote management of the MV5100's built-in RAID controller, as well as support for controller-level spanning of several MV5100 series boxes to create single arrays of up 32 disk drives.
