GB Labs Launch FastNAS NitroMAX

October 19, 2018 11:32 am

GB Labs will be building on the success over the last two years of their FastNAS series by launching a brand new product, FastNAS NitroMAX. 

The intelligent storage company, who provide a comprehensive range of online, near line, backup and archive solutions for Media and Entertainment workflows, recently announced their latest product for their FastNAS range, FastNAS NitroMAX at IBC this September. 

Marking two years since the launch of FastNAS, NitroMAX offers double the NVME acceleration layer in order to expedite more data simultaneously; now with 40GbE as standard for faster and more flexible connectivity. 

  • Bringing twice the capacity and twice the performance to the Nitro layer along with 40GbE as standard the new FastNAS NitroMAX is capable of up to 4000MBytes/s read performance from its combined NVME and HDD technologies. However, it really wins in the real world with its ability to deliver around 2000Mbytes/s of read performance from its 1TB of NVME accelerator whilst simultaneously allowing the spinning disks to accept over 2000Mbytes/s of write performance.
  • This is made possible using GB Labs’ unique technologies and intelligent algorithms for maximising real world missed IO data application. The end result means that users are gaining far more read streams whilst writing new data, supporting today’s modern, mixed environment workflows compared to existing shared storage technologies.
