The premier provider of Ethernet-based shared storage technology systems for OS X customers,
today introduced the newest version of its
for Pro Tools users seeking a fast and economical alternative to maximize their workflow. Small Tree’s GraniteSTOR abcSAN will be on exhibit at Macworld Expo 2010 (booth 647).
Utilizing iSCSI technology, GraniteSTOR abcSAN offers Pro Tools users working on Mac Pro systems real-time performance over Ethernet cable for as low as $750 a Terabyte. Robust, easy to set up and even easier to manage, GraniteSTOR abcSAN eliminates headaches and cost inefficiencies associated with existing storage solutions.
“Prior to the introduction of GraniteSTOR abcSAN, professional audio studios facing bottleneck issues would need to purchase a storage system as well as a PCIe expander to improve their system’s performance,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “With our iSCSI-based Ethernet storage system, which is faster than Firewire 800 and USB, Mac Pro users can now have a shared storage solution with RAID protection for all their data. That will improve workflow, thereby enabling the completion of projects on time and under budget.”
Providing robust performance for up to 96 audio tracks at 96kHz with consistent performance from your standard Ethernet network while offering optimal cost-efficiency, GraniteSTOR abcSAN is deployable as either a NAS or a SAN solution and is available in 6TB, 12TB or 24TB configurations.
