Avid unveils VideoRAID storage systems
The Avid VideoRAID product line leverages the combined bandwidth of multiple drives—with capacity of either 250GB or 500GB per drive—in storage arrays that provide real-time access to SD and HD media assets.
Avid Technology has announced the Avid VideoRAID family of storage systems that deliver up to 5TB of storage with guaranteed real-time access for multistream, high-bandwidth standard and high-definition workflows.
Unlike RAID products that suspend performance in the event of a drive failure, the new Avid VideoRAID line delivers uninterrupted real-time performance, even during a drive rebuild. The new system — the VideoRAID RTR320 and RTR320X — are the first in a series of low-cost parity RAID storage products that Avid plans to introduce as a result of acquiring Medéa Corporation in January.
The product line leverages the combined bandwidth of multiple drives — with capacity of either 250GB or 500GB per drive — in storage arrays that provide real-time access to SD and HD media assets. The VideoRAID RTR320 and RTR320X systems are built around five-drive and 10-drive storage arrays, respectively, with one out of every five drives functioning as a parity drive to deliver data protection without interrupting performance during drive rebuilds.
