mRAID16+: All-in-one high performance massively scalable 4K/8K video storage with integrated shared SAN file system

An all-in-one storage system mRaid16+ by Sourceit is simple to use and has high performance ability. It has been created to meet head on the challenges of broadcast industry. The system can keep up with the infrastructure demands of post-production storage.

Even the most burdened media workflows can work seamlessly with mRaid16+ due to its SAN system. Integrated within the hypervisor, the SAN file system doesn’t require separate hardware. Scalable with ability to support 4K and 8K videos, the product doesn’t demand complicated configurations, expensive additional servers or extra cabling.

4K & 8K Supported Architecture

mRaid16+ by Sourceit was created to aid video streams of 4K and 8K in their uncompressed forms.

An in-depth understanding of how media operations flow, the storage system is perfect for this field.

Offered with the system are dual controllers. They come in normal configurations that offer an output of above 6GB/s.

If needed, it can be scaled up to a throughput of 20GB/s using multiple controllers. It is the apt essential storage system for all media workflows.

Advanced Software

A RAID kernel design and hyper converged structure makes mRaid16+ unbeatable in the system software.

  • Logical volumes are split from physical hard drive.
  • Disk space is divided into tinier data blocks.
  • Blocks can be employed to build RAID groups.
  • A fine-tuned resource management capability.
  • The latest and ground-breaking technology allows for better performance, higher utilisation of space, increased velocity of disk reconstruction and mechanical load balancing.

Built In File System

Sourceit’s mRAID16+ is simple to install and service as it has an integrated file system. The shared system is specifically created for:

  • editing of videos
  • Capture on-set for prompt dailies
  • Media education facilities
  • It provides a media-focused workflow with data life cycle management tools and project organisation.

Storage System Elements

  • Power on and off with single stroke for every enclosure.

  • ID assignments are automatic.
