About OpenDrives

OpenDrives specialise in building high-performance NAS arrays that let media professionals work collaboratively, regardless of the resolution and file sizes they have to handle. OpenDrives' founders were technology leaders in the media and entertainment industry, and their solutions have been built from the ground up to address the industry’s frustrations with traditional data storage. They're now used by some of the most demanding post companies in the world, and are becoming the go to storage solutions for 4K workflows and above.

OpenDrives and Jigsaw24

We love OpenDrives’ storage solutions because they provide the 100GBps performance, capacity and flexibility needed for all types of media workflow, in any resolution or codec. As different stages of production feel the pressure to consider 4K and 8K as part of their standard workflow, our engineers can specify, install and support OpenDrives storage that’s optimised for any stage of your pipeline, including video ingest, transcoding and rendering to editorial, VFX, distribution and archiving.

The OpenDrives range

Summit

Summit is a versatile, powerful hybrid SSD/HDD storage array with superior cache management and NVMe acceleration. Summit delivers your network’s highest possible throughput, allowing you to support multiple concurrent workflows.

Being able to bring these workflows into a single storage system means you’ll never have to divide large projects among multiple volumes or move files between systems just to make room for projects, improving access for everyone and increasing the efficiency of technical teams and creatives.

Apex

Apex is OpenDrives’ most powerful all-flash NAS array for high-resolution image workflows. Ideal for working with multiple streams of 4K, 6K, 8K resolution content and supporting HDR and HFR workflows, Apex integrates seamlessly with leading editing and finishing software applications to speed up your editing, rendering, transcoding and grading workflows.

RidgeView

Ridgeview is a high density, all-HDD nearline array that can be scaled to multiple petabytes. It’s designed to let you create an ‘active archive’ of recent work and reusable assets in a single, easy to manage volume. Finding and remonetising existing work becomes simple, and much faster than it would be using a traditional LTO library. If you’re looking to update your RAW camera ingest workflow, RidgeView can provide huge efficiency savings here, too – get in touch to find out more.

Atlas OmniManagement

Atlas is OpenDrives’ enterprise-grade management platform, purpose-built for managing high-performance media workflows. Key features include an extensible 128-bit file system with efficient data striping, resilient data protection, and an integrated, web-based user interface for central management. Because OpenDrives understand how important resiliency is in a media environment, Atlas offers enterprise-class security, data protection, availability, and reliability compared to traditional RAID storage, all while optimising throughput and IOPS to improve write speeds and deliver greater than 85% utilisation of your network’s potential.
