GB Labs have launched some exciting new high availability storage at this year’s IBC. Called Echo 36, it offers complete failover in the case of disk failure or “localised disaster”, a phrase we do not hear enough. Here’s the press release:
Echo 36 is the big brother of GB Labs Echo nearline storage product. The Echo36 with our new Cloak DR software offers complete failover for power/disk failure and localised disaster. This makes Echo 36 a bulletproof storage solution for large broadcasters where data availability is paramount.
Two Echo 36 units working together provide unparalleled security and high availability with no single point of failure through storage and networking layers. Our unique Core operating system writes to both units simultaneously and in real-time, even when the units are up to 10Km apart.
Should one Echo 36 unit be completely destroyed, the same data is available in seconds from the other. Users on the network would be unaware because our operating system manages this transition over a single virtualized IP address, leading to no downtime and no relinking of media or other servers.
