HyperFS

HYPERFS data flow between LAN and SAN

Optimized for video production workflows

HyperFS presents a unified storage file system that takes the worry out of shared SAN/Block and Scale-Out NAS/File data storage, no matter what your needs are. HyperFS is created specifically for working with video and other large media files, making it a solution native to the demands of media-centric enterprises rather than something tweaked to work as well as it can in that environment.

Scalable as workloads increase

Data is continually growing, a phenomena codified by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965 when he observed that “The number of transistors on a chip will double every two years.” Moore’s law has held ever since, and with the extra storage and computing power allowed by those extra transistors, file sizes get larger and larger, as seen in video definitions as they move from HD to 4K to 8K.

That is one aspect of scalability, the ability to grow a storage pool to accommodate the growing storage needs of an organization. Another is scale-out, the ability to give more users access to the storage. No matter the size of your organization or the specifics of your storage needs, HyperFS can handle your data storage better and with less hassle than any other file system.

The alternative file system for SAN and Scale-Out NAS

  • Better TCO than the competition
  • Complete set-up through easy-to-use GUI
  • Compatible with most media-centric applications
  • US-based support with software engineers

HyperFS’s features can make your life easier through certifications on a wide variety of industry applications, file and block level access to a single file system, and simultaneous access to that file system on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

"There are several factors that I think the Unlimited differentiates itself from other storage options. I love the simplicity of the Unlimited in that we don’t need to provision for an additional MDC like traditional SAN deployments. I also love that it can also function as a NAS. Many of our clients end up having to create unique solutions to bridge their SAN and NAS solutions. This product provides both in a simple to deploy package. Not many other storage solutions provide this much flexibility in options and performance at this price point."
