(Oakdale, Minnesota--November 6, 2013) During this year’s Content & Communications World Expo in New York City, Small Tree will feature its GraniteSTOR TitaniumZ-8 shared storage system, an all-in-one real-time Ethernet-based shared storage solution designed and optimized for the demanding needs of professional video editors requiring shared access to media files (Booth 953). Creative teams will immediately feel the difference in increased performance and productivity with Small Tree’s full-featured, high-performance dedicated video editing shared storage appliance with advanced file sharing capabilities.

Offering the right levels of storage capacity and connectivity to keep creative professionals working efficiently, TitaniumZ-8 is built on an operating system that was customized to be easy to use, feature-rich and reliable, while performing at a high level. Customers can choose from an eight-drive system with 2TB drives or up to an 80-drive system with 4TB drives.

TitaniumZ-8 provides high-performance sharing, quickly and directly from the RAID, features simplified setup and management, and RAID protection for multimedia editing, and includes Small Tree’s industry-leading tech support. Configurable with up to 20 10GbE ports or 24GbE ports with storage capacities (raw) from 10TB to 320TB, TitaniumZ-8 can be upgraded on site through advanced ZFS technology, which enables servers to seamlessly integrate newly added storage while keeping existing files intact.

Just like Small Tree’s TitaniumZ-5 and 16 systems, the Z-8 offers optimal flexibility with the capability to work across multiple protocols (AFP, SMB, NFS and iSCSI) and platforms, including Adobe Creative Suite, Avid Media Composer, Avid Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro 7 and Apple Final Cut Pro X. Additionally, the TitaniumZ-8 system includes Mint project sharing software from Flavoursys – customers can purchase a 4 or 8 seat license – which offers seamless project and media sharing for Avid Media Composer.

“TitaniumZ-8 and its sister products were designed to provide users with tremendous flexibility at an attractive price point,” said Corbin Seeber, Small Tree president. “The appliance’s scalability makes it an ideal solution for growing and forward-thinking companies, while its capacity to work with a wide range of popular applications is perfect for those content professionals who aren’t committed to a single platform.”
