MediaStore 5100 storage arrays provide scalable and reliable high-performance, disk-based shared storage for Spectrum™ media server systems.
Spectrum MediaStore Features
Each hot-swappable drive in a MediaStore 5000 enclosure is connected via two integral SAS expanders. Storage capacity can be added at any time without disrupting on-air operations, while SAS connectivity between MediaStore and MediaDirector chassis guarantees the bandwidth required for real-time media operations. Up to four MediaStore chassis can be daisy-chained in a single Spectrum system.
MediaStore 7200 provides optional expansion storage to increase the internal capacity and performance of MediaCenter 2200B integrated servers. Featuring cost-effective, Ethernet-based drives and superior, consistent performance for media workflows, MediaStore 7200 is ideal for customers utilizing high bitrate codecs and 3G or UHD rasters.
All MediaStore systems are designed for high throughput of large media files. MediaStore connects to MediaDirector system controllers via two 6-Gbps SAS interfaces, while MediaStore 7200 connects to MediaCenter 2200B via a dual 12-Gb SAS fabric. Since all disk subsystem management is provided in software by MediaDirector and MediaCenter — including all file system and RAID information — no hardware controller is required.
