Archion Technologies Introduces Omni Hybrid Storage Solution for Virtual Reality, Visual Effects, Animation and Motion Graphics
Archion Technologies, a leader in high-performance shared media storage, has introduced its EditStor Omni Hybrid—the company’s newest product within its family of collaborative storage solutions for demanding media workflows.
The slogan promoting Archion’s new Omni Hybrid is “Creativity Rendered.” The system is intended as the ideal storage solution for virtual reality, augmented reality, visual effects, animation and motion graphics, and other rendered content. According to Archion, It offers the powerful combination of an unprecedented amount of bandwidth through a single NAS media server to handle 4K DPX/UHD streaming video and outstanding accelerated IOPS performance dedicated to rendering, CGI and trans-coding applications.
Omni Hybrid offers extraordinary performance: 8,000 MB/second for 4K and other streaming demands, and more than 600,000 IOPS for Rendering and CGI Graphics. The product has been certified with Adobe After Effects, Autodesk, Maya/Flame/Lustre, Foundry Nuke, Blackmagic Resolve, and more. The Omni Hybrid offers scalability, with simple and affordable expansion, and can grow to 1.5 Petabytes of data.
James Tucci, Archion’s CTO, said, “It’s a testament to the significant intellectual property we’ve built over the years that enables our company to offer such tremendous performance both in throughput and IOPS out of just a single affordable NAS system. This enables accelerated graphics and editorial workflows on the one system. This is a huge advantage, as the user does not have to wait to migrate media from one tier to the other.”
“Our brand new Omni Hybrid finally enables today’s creative facilities to avoid storage infrastructure that includes multiple storage servers and complicated, over-priced SAN technology,” adds Reuben Lima, CEO/Founder, Archion. “Omni Hybrid outperforms all other shared storage solutions for demanding streaming applications and for animation and visual effects workflows. We developed the Omni Hybrid as part of our ongoing commitment to meeting our customers’ needs as they move into new media platforms, including virtual reality and augmented reality. This remarkable new product is unmatched by any other company in the marketplace.”
“Our introduction of the Omni Hybrid proves that we are strategically focused on developing products that offer broad capabilities for content creation workflows,” said Dan Stern, Archion’s VP of business development. “Our company prides itself on the ability to provide powerful collaborative solutions that are affordable, scalable, and meet the most demanding creative requirements anywhere in the world.”
