Advancing capabilities of the product line to achieve much higher concurrent video stream editing, large connectivity via state of the art multiple 10GE and GE connectivity and introduction of SSD (Solid State Flash Drives) to address the demanding needs of high user count and high resolution raw video formats such as ProRes, DnxHD, HQ and DvcPro-HD as some of the features of the fourth generation. The hybrid disk systems blends optimized SSD performance with high capacity HDD cost advantage to address performance and capacity requirement of most demanding media uses. Linear scalability of performance and capacity is assured through a multi-system topology over IP networks.

Additionally, intelligent new FileManager software from Apace paired with vStor offer streamlined management of workspaces between SSD/HDD storage pools making access and use optimized for editing workgroups and more versatile to support video, audio and still media needs. The SSD based solution will run green and consume less power and generate less heat in your server room. vStors can be clustered together over the 10GE backbone to linearly scale performance and capacity and by pairing them with eStor (Near-Line storage) can address tapeless workflows from ingest, edit to archive of content on vStor/eStor storage server Lego building blocks.

Additionally, as a new feature for Avid ProTool users, vStor can be equipped with iSCSI module to address block based access needs of ProTool and audio applications while leveraging its SSD advantage. Supporting still image editing via SSD based vStor offers ideal shared storage for Photoshop, Maya and likewise graphics application. As such, vStor can be a file based and a block based storage appliance to address all video and audio workgroups. Additionally, for graphics application in need of frame level editing and high render storage, vStor online storage offers direct work in process access for high I/O and high sequential access traffic. Multiple editing workstations can simultaneously access the storage pool and share the content through ubiquitously available Ethernet. Shared content can then be sent to tape or directly broadcasted on air. Users with Ethernet access can review the content from their desktop using QuickTime or Media Player: no client software/ license or special hardware needed! vStor product line offers deterministic latency/ jitters with guaranteed stream count for clients served over the gigabit Ethernet. vStor platform offers better management of media, protection, sharing and access with other editors to greatly improved productivity. vStor series products are easy to use, simple to maintain, versatile, scalable, and reliable.
