Digidesign Pro Tools
MetaSAN-managed volumes are now recognized by Digidesign Pro Tools. Facilities relying on a mix of Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composers, Adobe After Effects, and Digidesign Pro Tools workstations can now consolidate their projects on a single volume so everyone can access the same mediafiles. MetaSAN is the first file-level sharing SAN management software capable of presenting Pro Tools with compliant shared volumes.
Popular in render farms and other computational-intensive applications performance, Windows 64-bit operating systems are now fully supported.
Volumes up to 18 exabytes in size
Microsoft GUID Partition Table (GPT) support enables MetaSAN 2.2 to manage volumes up to 18,000 Petabytes in size.
Improved bandwidth management
Bandwidth “reserve” and “quota” can be assigned to individual workstations, allowing administrators to perfectly match network loads with storage capabilities. The “reserve” settings ensure everyone gets the data they need, when they need it while the “quota” settings allow a fair distribution of the unutilized bandwidth.
“Combined with our stoneGate announcement, this new release further exemplifies Tiger’s unique ability to resolve specific workgroup issues that plague modern post facilities” said David Pollock, Director of sales for Tiger Technology “we’re working towards resolving the practical limitations that have prevented post and broadcast facilities from efficiently unifying their storage infrastructures and build true collaborative environments.”
