    VTrak A-Class Series All in One Storage Appliance for Rich Media
    Marketing Information
    Scale out High Performance and High Capacity

    The VTrak A3800 shared SAN appliance is ideal for multi-user collaboration to ingest, edit, stream, and process rich media. The VTrakFS™ file system software integrated with metadata controllers and VTrak primary storage in a single box enables higher performance and workload productivity and for easier management. It is an "All in one" RAID storage subsystem, with integrated metadata appliance and embedded filesystem for Big Data with NAS Gateway.

    NAS Gateway

    The NAS Gateway enables hundreds of clients in the LAN network to access the highly scalable fibre channel SAN appliance via 10Gb Ethernet. While the NAS Gateway contains a file sharing protocol and file system management, the benefit is that the backend VTrak A3800 SAN can scale to petabytes while still appearing as a single NAS folder interface. This eliminates the need to reconfigure clients, as done in traditional NAS environments when additional storage is required.

    Fast and Simple

    VTrak A-Class is optimized for high performance, high bandwidth rich media applications requiring large block sequential IOPs. Plus, it's much less complicated that competing solutions because it's an "all-in-one" metadata appliance, RAID storage subsystem, and file system (VTrakFS™).

    Scalable, Reliable and Cost-Efficient

    With A-Class you can "pay as you grow" from 32TB to over 7PB for long-term storage investment protection. Additionally, VTrak x30 is the only Apple-qualified enterprise SAN subsystem, with high-availability dual controllers, hot-swappable modular disk array, and included 3-Year warranty. The A-Class can save 30-40% rack space and energy costs compared to nonintegrated multi-vendor solutions.

    Optimized for Video Centric Environments

    PROMISE VTrakFS™ file system is optimized for leveraging 8Gb FC interface for large file data ingesting, streaming, or processing between a SAN and its clients - unlike NAS file systems. Data is directly transferred between the SAN appliance and clients over the SAN FC network. This means higher bandwidth performance and lower latency data transfers, as required by Media & Entertainment, HPC applications, and other video-centric environments.

    Store Massive Amounts of Data
    Store massive amount of data required by media centric and HPC environments. Scale across multiple RAID storage subsystems thus scaling in capacity and performance.
    ? Supports 1024 RAID Logical Drives to make up the volume(s).
    ? JBODs can be added dynamically to increase the storage space.
    ? RAID heads can be added as Storage Nodes to dynamically increase the storage space as well as increase the number of FC counts, thereby scaling in performance.
    ? All this can be done online without interrupting the clients.

    Supersized File System for Big Data
    Supersized File System for Big Data

    VTrak A-Class virtualizes storage to create a single name space, shared storage volume.
    ? Each VTrakFS™ consists of a metadata LUN (MDL) and data LUNs (DL)
    ? MDL contains information about file location, size, access times, etc.
    ? VTrak A Class head unit manages directing each client the correct file info over 1Gb Ethernet, but each Client has full speed access to actual data via 8Gb Fibre Channel
