mRAID16: High Performance massively scalable 4K/8K video storagefor the media and entertainment industry

The mRaid16 by Sourceit is the best high-performance video storage in the industry. It has been built to keep up with the challenges of media and entertainment sector. Even the most demanding broadcast or post-production workflows benefit from mRaid16. Right from creation till the time a video is archived mRaid16 has every feature to meet the required needs. As scalable storage system, the performance of it is based on the ability to have flexible configuration. Sourceit’s mRaid16 is the single product every production facility requires to address all storage needs.

The storage system for videos is designed to expand with need. It is a higher model of the much lauded mRaid system. It proffers an ease of use that promotes creativity and collaboration. Smooth operations and flow of work result in superior productivity with mRaid16.

Inventive Software

With an architecture that is hyper-converged and physical drives that are separated from logical volumes, mRaid16 is an innovative system. The storage system that works on a virtualised kernel design allows for perfect resource management through creation of RAId groups. Because the space of a disk is divided into smaller data blocks, load balancing is automated. Thus, there is more storage, higher space efficiency and quicker reconstruction of disk.

Friendly GUI

mRaid16 utilises ActiveManager, the latest graphical user interface. Compatible with Apple, the browser-based GUI helps in monitoring the system and configuring it. The interface can also be employed to check performance statistics. Potent, intuitive and simple to use, ActiveManager is the ideal tool.

4K& 8K Video Streams

The architecture of mRaid16 is built to support uncompressed videos of 4K and 8K. It has dual controllers that can give an output of 6GB/s which can be further increased to a bandwidth of 20GB/s. Sourceit’s mRaid16 has an inherent comprehension of workflow.

Gigantic Archive Storage

Every mRaid16 is provided with 2U 12 bay controllers that make it excellent for archiving videos and near-line storage. The expandable 4U 24 bay enclosures make certain that the system can sustain up to 6PB.

Additional Elements

  • Management suite that is browser based and Apple compatible.

  • Highest level of throughput provided by controllers that used automated load balance.

  • Completely compatible with Apple xSAN.

  • Zero data loss guaranteed as the hard disks have a battery supported cache.

  • All enclosures come with one touch On and Off power.

  • The cooling and power system is extremely energy-efficient and has minimal noise.
