Back up Your Storage Network
Most nearline archive products on the market deliver large capacities. Many deliver excellent security. A few provide the speed for multi-stream read / write operations. A handful give you fast and affordable expansion. A minority allow virtually instant scaling over Ethernet networks. Only Space Echo gives you the lot. Data security is essential. So is an instantly-available media archive. The scalable Echo (Eco) can fulfil both roles in a state-of-the-art nearline solution. Housed locally or remotely, it can provide disaster recovery, replicating your entire tier 1 media assets. It’s also got the speed and capacity to hold your growing archive, giving users instant access to every file over standard Ethernet networks.

Echo is a fast nearline storage system for:

  • Fast data back-up
  • Disaster recovery
  • Secondary graphics storage
  • Online media archiving
Cloud and Local Workflows
Additionally, Echo (Eco) is well suited to use in a cloud environment, either for remote point-to-point data replication, or as a secure, always available online shared back-up. In local networks, Space Echo (Eco) can write data to four LTO drives concurrently at full speed using Space LTO for an unmatched archiving workflow. Running GB Labs’ Core 3 OS, a comprehensive data toolset including a file manager, notification center, automated backups, intelligent watch folders, dynamic security settings, file replication, data offloading and media restoration is included as standard.

Scalable Energy Efficent Storage
The new Echo is highly energy efficient which means it is cooler running and more affordable than ever. From a single 3U chassis, Echo can host up-to 96TB – a considerable saving on rack space and energy usage compared with multiple lower capacity units. With dedicated expansion modules, Echo (Eco) can be increased to 1.7 Petabytes. This Eco version is up-to 45% more energy efficient than the previous model.
