Symply, Inc., the new startup in high-performance storage for media and creative professionals, today unveiled its first product series, SymplyStor desktop RAID and SymplyShare for Thunderbolt and IP-connected workgroups.
SymplyStor desktop RAID delivers high-performance, easy-to-use storage with lightning fast throughput and low latency for demanding 4K and HD video production. Depending on performance needs, SymplyStor desktop RAID supports configurations in a choice of SSD or hard drives to provide capacities up to 64TB.
SymplyStor supports Thunderbolt 2 for throughput at 20Gb per second, and Thunderbolt 3 for throughput at 40Gb per second. When docked in a SymplyShare base, SymplyStor operates seamlessly with SymplyStor Expansion managed as a single RAID, up to a 120TB capacity and provides ‘plug-and-go’ collaboration for up to 8 users.
Powered by StorNext 5 and 100% Xsan compatible, SymplyStor management software provides a simple 5-step setup, and intuitive monitoring apps native on Mac OS X, Windows, on iOS for iPhone and iPad, and even watchOS.
“Symply products are really designed for creative professionals,” explained Alex Grossman, CEO of Symply, Inc. “SymplyStor and SymplyPro show what’s possible when you view storage in such a way that the perspective of the creative is always kept front and center; and the best technology with highest performance, highest throughput and easiest management tools are all brought together to let creatives stay focused on production. Production is hard enough – storage really shouldn’t be.”
In addition, Symply provided a technology preview of SymplyPro, powered by StorNext 5, for workgroups and facilities. The SymplyPro design provides true facility-level collaboration for large workgroups, optimized for 4K and 8K, with scale to 1PB of shared storage, an innovative first-of-its-kind front panel communications system, on a foundation of proven Promise RAID technology. The technology preview also shows how SymplyPro is designed to support up to 20 high-speed Fibre Channel clients in any combination of Apple Xsan, Windows or Linux clients, and additional IP-connected clients.
