Hybrid-Architecture Delivers High-Powered Performance to Uncompressed Collaborative Workflows
August 15, 2018 – Atlanta, GA – DigitalGlue has announced an addition to its ground-breaking creative.space platform. //DEUS EX – a hybrid NVMe SSD and HDD media storage solution – balances solid state and spinning disk technology with a fully optimized internal architecture to provide seamless playback in the most demanding environments. The hybrid system is the latest to launch in the creative.space series, an On-Premise Managed Storage™ (OPMS) service that includes 24/7 monitoring, technical support and next-day repairs for an affordable, all-inclusive monthly rate.
Designed for end-to-end post-production workflows, //DEUS EX is built for uncompressed high-resolution workflows and is capable of tackling even the most demanding real-world formats like 4K DCI OpenEXR. It eliminates the need for separate online and nearline systems with dynamic caching powered by Media Intelligence, allowing the entire team to work on the same system simultaneously. Featuring dual Intel Gold Processors, plenty of RAM, 4 NVMe SSDs, and up to 20 Helium-filled HDDs (24 without SSDs), //DEUS EX enables artists to implement dynamic collaborative workflows like those available in DaVinci Resolve and Adobe Creative Cloud to allow artists to get more done in less time.
//DEUS EX joins previously launched systems in the creative.space line-up including //AUTEUR, designed for small teams working with compressed 4K+ workflows starting with 120TB RAW capacity across 12 drives in a 24-bay 4 RU chassis; and //BREATHLESS, developed for scalable high-bandwidth DI, VFX, and OTT workflows with a 36-bay all-flash NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) packed into a 1U form factor.
“//DEUS EX offers the best of all worlds,” says Tim Anderson, DigitalGlue CEO/CTO. “It’s scalable for unlimited growth potential, delivers unparalleled performance in the most demanding environments, and raises collaboration to a whole new level. It is also part of our creative.space On-Premise Managed Storage service so facilities will experience support that can’t be beat!”
creative.space optimizes the latest, most advanced hardware and software to simplify the technical aspects of producing, storing, and distributing video-centric content, further enabling the creative process. DigitalGlue, a leading equipment, integration, and software development provider, also designs and implements solutions for complete turnkey content creation, post-production, and distribution.
