SGO, a developer of globally-acclaimed hero-suite Mistika Ultima, and RAIDIX, a leading data storage vendor, have joined forces once again and delivered cutting-edge custom built full-finishing post-production systems for some of the most renowned facilities across the world.
Depending on Mistika Ultima configuration, Mistika-Raidix can be incorporated as an integrated storage system component. This enables low latency, high throughput and increased speed for even the most demanding post-production workflows with collaboration between multiple workstations.
“Most storage systems are fast in the server side but they fail to deliver the same speed to the other hosts”, pointed out Javier Moreno, Technical Director at SGO. “The software integration between Mistika Ultima and RAIDIX not only gets more bandwidth from the same hardware, but this bandwidth also goes exactly where you need it and when you need it. For example, we have essentially ‘hard wired’ Raidix QOS to Mistika Play / Stop functions to make sure that all bandwidth valves in the entire infrastructure are instantly opened or closed on demand."
Based on patented algorithms and erasure coding methods, RAIDIX allows maximum speed of applications and data integrity. In order to identify process-critical applications and assign them maximum priority RAIDIX employs machine learning in QoSmic add-on.
Stepping ahead, RAIDIX offers software RAID for NVMe devices, showing full potential of new hardware where speed matters. Flexible RAIDIX ERA allows customization on demand and is free for the system with 4 drives at raidix.com.
