SCALE STORAGE CAPACITY & PROTECT YOUR DATA
|The ProMAX Platform Nearline Series is a high capacity, cost effective workflow server that delivers a high level of data protection while providing easy access to projects and content that are not yet ready to be archived. It is extremely effective as a backup location or to augment the overall capacity of your storage network. Paired with Platform Online systems, Nearline Series can take advantage of the Media Management features in Platform software for ultra-high speed data transfers. It also integrates easily with other existing Tier 1 SAN or NAS systems.|
MULTI-TIER STORAGE NETWORKS FOR VIDEO
As digital file sizes continue to grow, video production groups face increasing storage requirements and higher costs. To alleviate this problem, many facilities are utilizing high-capacity “Nearline” storage systems as part of a multi-tiered strategy to maximize data protection and reduce costs. As projects are completed on high performance “Online” storage they are moved to Nearline systems that offer a higher level of data protection at a far lower cost per terabyte.

LARGE SCALE STORAGE CAPACITY
|Platform Nearline features 36 hard drive bays in a single 4RU server, with a max total capacity of 288TB. This storage can be expanded up to 864TB per node or to multiple petabytes across additional nodes.|
ULTRA-HIGH SPEED DATA TRANSFERS
|By utilizing built-in media management features, Platform Nearline is able to transfer data from other 10GbE connected servers on the network at fast speeds. This makes it extremely effective as a Tier 2 backup device or a staging area for archive operations.|
MAXIMUM DATA PROTECTION
|Platform Nearline Series features multiple layers of redundancy for maximum uptime, reliability and data protection. SSD system drives are mirrored for fail-over and all chassis feature dual redundant power supplies. Primary storage groups are protected by a multi-RAID-60 architecture.|
EASILY INTEGRATE WITH EXISTING STORAGE
|Platform Nearline integrates easily with existing Tier 1 SAN and NAS storage systems and can be used to augment storage capacity or as backup for other devices in a multi-tier storage environment.|
|Platform Servers feature a built-in transcode engine that can be upgraded to process up to 8 simultaneous transcodes. This enables creative groups to offload time consuming file conversions from their workstations. Create custom transcode workflows to convert media at ingest or for delivery with support for multiple formats.|
BACKUP AND ARCHIVE
|With LTO backup and Archiving capabilities built directly into the system, media administrators can easily protect, deliver and manage their digital assets by copying to LTO tape. Platform supports full and incremental backup as well as full MD5 checksum archiving and uses industry standard formats like LTFS and tar. And with the ability to generate and view proxies of archived assets, users save significant time managing media assets.|
|What sets Platform apart from other systems is its ability to join an existing Windows domain and integrate natively with the Active Directory structure. This means that Platform is able to utilize the same users, groups and permissions that are already in place at an organization rather than maintaining a separate user account system that must be synced periodically. This is especially important for enterprise and corporate environments, schools and colleges.|
Platform Nearline Series has been designed as a Tier 2 storage system and is optimized for file transfers rather than video streaming. In an optimal configuration Nearline servers can move data from Online storage groups at over 1GB/s.
