G-Technology unveils G-SPEED eS PRO XL
Hitachi Global Storage Technologies’ G-Technology has introduced the G-SPEED eS PRO XL, a rack-mount, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) expansion solution with mini-SAS connectivity, which provides a high-performance, low-cost RAID for professional content creation applications.
The new G-Technology G-SPEED eS PRO XL comes in a 2RU 12-drive or 3RU 16-drive rack-mount enclosure, with hot-swappable SATA 3Gb/s hard drives for expandable direct-attached storage for small film studios and production houses.
Supporting the performance needs of multistream, uncompressed HD and 2K workflows, the G-SPEED eS PRO XL in a 3RU RAID 5 configuration delivers sustained read/write speeds of more than 650MB per second, which makes it appropriate for real-time video editing and digital intermediate (DI) film applications.
