EFS supports your workflow needs. You’re free to choose your own creative toolset and integrate into your workflow with a full set of RESTful APIs.
Designed for media and production team environments. EFS redefines storage to maximize digital media performance that is equally suitable as a shared file system on-premise or using cloud storage.
EFS provides storage to suit all productions. Start small and grow with non-disruptive, cost-effective scaling up to 5PB and beyond supporting hundreds of millions of assets.
EFS is a software defined ecosystem uniquely tailored for media centric environments which:
Collaborative Media Workflow
Share collaborative projects and media with multiple users working on-premise and in the cloud.
Build the workflows you want on top of an open platform that integrates with industry-leading creative tools from:
Mix and match creative tools while enjoying project sharing and bin locking capabilities in a multi-collaboration environment.
Enjoy high availability and extreme reliability with no single point of failure. The EFS open storage solution gives managers and administrators peace of mind in 24/7 environments.
Stay in control with a management console that allows you to adapt the distributed file system to your needs. Whether it be a single server of a multi-node cluster, EFS works with you.
Seamlessly read and utilize parity or copy data from elsewhere in the cluster when a storage node is busy or unavailable. EFS increases performance and reliability with our SwiftRead technology.
Single Name Space
Scale as needed, while retaining a single namespace across tiered storage including nearline disk, SSD, and fast HDD options.
Leverage an open platform that provides unprecedented scalability, optimized performance, and data protection.
Additionally, the management console works as the “brain” of the EFS technology stack. You can easily control user permissions, projects, security and administrative privileges.
Creativity Beyond Boundaries
EFS Swift Link technology revolutionizes the creative process by enabling seamless and secure access to media stored on EFS nodes from anywhere in the world. Whether editing with proxies or downloading for offline work (automatically relinking to high-res files when available), Swift Link ensures minimal disruptions and optimal throughput with its advanced latency detection, boosting VPN performance up to 10 times and empowering creatives to collaborate more efficiently across the globe.
Leverage the openly published RESTFul APIs for simple but powerful integration.
Easily accomplish automation of administrative tasks including user permissions, quotas, and projects, saving countless hours of administration.
Experience increased bandwidth, reliability and reduced latency across the network.
Optimized specifically for creative applications, EFS drivers are native for:
They allow direct connectivity to storage resulting in superior performance. EFS also supports standard protocols like SMB, NFS, and AFP.
EditShare Guardian offers real-time visibility into the ongoing operations of an EditShare system.
A set of dashboards and analytics tools provide custom search capabilities. The software offers the ability to create custom dashboards and reports based on these searches.
Guardian also records user activities such as media space mounts and unmounts, individual file opens, reads, writes, and deletes. The software provides full system accountability.
Writing and Playback of Files
Excel with a system that is optimized and tuned for the high performance, multi-stream video playback demands of post-production.
EFS maintains performance anywhere. From 100s of streams of concurrent low-bitrate offline editorial streams to demanding multi-stream uncompressed 4K single-file per-frame workflows and beyond.
A 3-node, 192 TB entry-level cluster with over 2.3 GB/s of bandwidth that can scale linearly to more than unlimited capacity
Enterprise-scale high-perfomance shared storage for media production
An entry level server that can scale to a three-node configuration supporting 360 TB
The ‘control system’ for the movement and connections to any large-scale deployment of multiple EFS nodes
Engineered for bandwidth-hungry formats such as uncompressed DPX, DNxHR 444 and ProRes 4444 – scaling from 8TB to 5PB
Enterprise class, distributed scale-out storage designed for the most demanding collaborative media environments
A storage node intended for ‘parking’ media that needs immediate accessibility but at the extreme speed of an online production workflow
The solution for backup your content to tape or disk – whether temporary, short-term, or permanent archive
Managing your media is hard enough with one editor involved. But throw in a larger team and the simple act of storing and organizing your content can become a major bottleneck to your workflow – and to your team’s creative output. EditShare’s EFS makes setting up and managing your projects fast, easy, and automatic.
