EditShare has announced the expansion of its high-performance XStream EFS scale out storage product line with XStream EFS 40NL. The new XStream EFS 40NL scale out storage model is designed to deliver the performance and economics of traditional nearline storage with the scalability, fault-tolerance, and ease of use of the proven EditShare EFS shared storage solution. Administrators can easily add one or more EFS 40NL nodes of cost-optimized storage to an existing XStream EFS storage cluster as well as configure the EFS 40NL as an independent storage cluster for disaster recovery or media backup. Each XStream EFS 40NL 4U storage node provides 240TB of raw capacity and can be configured to protect against the loss of one or more nodes.
Like all existing EFS nodes, EFS 40NL nodes leverage EditShare's “Storage Node Group” concept, which allows users to assign media spaces to a specific set of nodes and define how the files in the media space are protected.
