Ardis Technologies DDP delivers high-bandwidth Avid file, project sharing
At IBC2008, Ardis Technologies featured its Dynamic Drive Pool (DDP) with high-bandwidth project- and file-level sharing using standard Ethernet for workstations running Avid Technology applications.
The RAID-based storage system allows sharing between Avid systems, including Nitris, and provides simultaneous read and write access to the same drive/volume. A file locking and delete protection mechanism prevents undesired data erasure.
Because the DDP uses iSCSI (SCSI over Ethernet) technology, the bandwidth of a DDP competes with that of the best Fibre Channel systems. The DDP delivers SAN speed with NAS functionality.
