Near Limitless Storage
Echo 36 guided the industry towards massive capacities in a single rack unit. Now with EX 36, the Echo 36 nearline system can be greatly expanded to huge multi-petabyte capacities. Go from 192TB to 4.6TB; simply add EX units as and when the need arises. EX 36 is available from 32TB to 192TB configurations. Multiple EX 36 devices can be joined to a core unit as requirements change. The expansion units do not just add space; they deliver an increase in data throughput, making for an enhanced workflow experience for users.
With EX 36, users can:

  • Add up to 5 expansion units to grow your Space capacity to 1.15PB per RAID controller
  • By installing additional RAID controllers and EX units, performance and capacity can be further enhanced
  • Connectivity: high speed SAS connectivity

Growth: Pain-free
When additional storage is required, typically administrators have to off-load files onto tape (which usually entails slow file retrieval) or connect further full-cost storage arrays to the network. With EX36, adding capacity is dynamic: it’s a faster, safer and more cost-effective solution that does not change editing and media workflows in any respect. EX36 also has the added benefit of a performance boost in the core system, delivering the best ever user experience.
