About GB Labs

Space Has Re-defined Central Media Storage
GB Labs’ range of Space products represents 15 years of storage innovation in the media industry. All of our solutions have been developed to solve ‘real world’ needs - designed with customers, for customers.

We empower creative workflows worldwide for a number of sectors including broadcast, post production and film. Customers range from small to large enterprises, with our product range able to look after their needs from ingest to archive and everything in between.

All of our solutions can be optimised for your environment prior to installation. The Space range is fully scalable in both performance and capacity, meaning it grows with your organisation and its success.

Our easy to use user interface allows you to manage, automate and replicate your data. In the unlikely event you should need assistance, you can directly contact our global support team 24/7.

SUPER TIER 1
GB Labs created Super Tier 1 to fulfil the needs of the most demanding workgroups. Working with file formats such as 4K and DPX particularly in a shared working environment puts a huge strain on traditional hard disc drives (HDD). This is why we have created an entirely solid state drive (SSD) system which is Super Tier 1.
Our SSD range of Space media storage can achieve data rates in excess of 9000MB/s and is proven in multi-user 8K environments and the largest creative workgroups. What is more, because there are no moving parts they system will run virtually maintenance free.

TIER 1
Extremely fast media storage for your online projects…
GB Labs range of Tier 1 Space storage enables HD editors, colorists, graphic artists, motion graphics developers and sound professionals to work collaboratively on projects and share files with total security and no compromise on performance.
Space outperforms competitive systems in terms of ease of expansion, scalability, support and we are confident we can beat any other system in speed. Our own operating system has been designed to allow creatives to manage their workflow with minimum technical support.
When online projects are completed, they can be moved to our Tier 2 range, which means your Tier 1 storage is always optimized for the best performance.

TIER 2
Nearline, Tier 2, parking, disaster recovery or backup. What do you call yours?
As you know, keeping old projects and rushes on your expensive online storage will not only slow the system down but increase the chances of having to expand your system, not something your Finance Director would like.
This is where an intelligent nearline solution comes into play, think of it as ‘belt and braces’. GB Labs Space systems sit happily in the background taking snapshots of your Tier 1 storage, parking that data securely before sending it off to LTO Archive.
Should the unthinkable happen and your online is no longer ‘online’ your creatives can be linked to the Tier 2 nearline ensuring business continuity and minimal downtime.

TAPE ARCHIVE
GB Labs, Space LTO range allows users to write to multiple tapes at up-to 640MB/s and archive projects of any size. Our offline storage has unique HyperWrite technology, which intelligently optimizes read/write algorithms prior to writing to tape. This ensures the LTO performs at full speed with any data type* and, without putting unnecessary wear on the tape, thus prolonging it’s life.
The range consists of the Space LTO, Midi LTO and the 4K Duo. Choosing the right product to suit you will depend on which LTO format you are using and how big and how fast your system requirements are.
