Scale-out NAS for Demanding Media Workflows
Powered by StorNext, the Xcellis Scale-out NAS appliance unites robust media and metadata management with industry-leading performance and unmatched scalability to support content creators’ most-demanding workflows and ease the transition to IP-based infrastructure.Xcellis systems boost productivity in collaborative media environments by integrating the most important components of workflow storage into a single, easy-to-manage hardware solution.
An Xcellis cluster can scale performance and capacity together or independently to reach hundreds of petabytes in capacity and more than a terabyte per second in performance. When deployed as part of a multitier infrastructure — which can include object, tape and cloud storage — Xcellis Scale-out NAS can cost as little as 1/10 that of an enterprise NAS-only solution with the same capacity.
Improved MAM With Xcellis Scale-out NAS and Dalet Galaxy
Dalet solutions streamline media operations, reduce production costs and increase revenue opportunities by simplifying the distribution of rich media assets across consumer platforms, both interactive and traditional. The combination of Xcellis Scale-out NAS and Dalet Galaxy significantly improves media workflows:
- Source material, work in progress, and finished packages can be shared and made instantly available on every desktop, or remotely.
- Users can produce more stories and packages in less time with a unique rights-managed workflow engine that enhances collaboration and productivity.
- Metadata can be captured from every data source, generated automatically and retained throughout the workflows, reducing manual data entry and accelerating access to online or archived material.
