Free to choose your own creative toolset as well as a full set of RESTful APIs enabling you to support workflows to suit your needs.
Designed for media and production environments. Redefines storage to maximize digital media performance that is equally suitable for deployment on-premise or in the cloud.
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 creative 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 Adobe®, Apple®, Avid®, Autodesk®, Blackmagic Design® and more. 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 giving facility 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. Seamlessly read and utilize parity or copy data from elsewhere in the cluster when a particular storage node is busy or unavailable, increasing 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, with the EFS management console as the “brain” of the EFS technology stack, you can easily control user permissions, projects, security and administrative privileges.
Leverage the openly published RESTFul API’s 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 and reliability and reduce latency across the network. Optimized specifically for creative applications, EFS drivers are native for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems and allow direct connectivity to storage resulting in superior performance while also supporting standard protocols like SMB, NFS, and AFP if needed.
Auditing is a crucial part of the EFS technology stack. Real-time analytics reveal every nuance of your valuable content’s journey, in real time. There is complete accountability over who did what, when, to which files and directories which is compliant with industry standards and security guidelines.
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, and will maintain performance anywhere from many hundreds 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
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
