Scalable Performance for CM&E

Features

  • Built in Enterprise File System
  • No Per Seat Client Cost
  • Real-time Initiator
  • Real-time Latency Enhancements with Zero Impact Rebuild
  • Application Intelligence
  • Genesis can learn the I/O patterns/behavior for an application while admins can give those applications a “real-time” status or “non realtime”. This means “non realtime” applications auto-throttle down to allow realtime apps the bandwidth. Many popular applications come pre-learned, like Finder, Explorer, Resolve, Premiere, in addition allowing for admins to add their own apps as well.

Some thoughts on the product from an industry professional

"There’s several factors that I think the Unlimited differentiates itself from other storage options. I love the simplicity of the Unlimited in that we don’t need to provision for an additional MDC like traditional SAN deployments, I also love that it can also function as a NAS. Many of our clients end up having to create unique solutions to bridge their SAN and NAS solutions. This product provides both in a simple to deploy package. I especially love the available options for connectivity which includes Infiniband, not many other storage solutions provide this much flexibility in options and performance at this price point."
