Harris Ramps Up Efficiency, Performance of NEXIO Farad™ Online Storage Systems

As IBC 2012 approaches, Harris Broadcast Communications establishes a common shared storage platform that adds a significant 50% bandwidth improvement to its NEXIO Farad™ online storage solution — and introduces a second storage protection scheme with a lower cost of entry.
The expanded configurations build on the early global success of NEXIO Farad, allowing broadcasters and media organizations to work quicker and build the storage environment they need today — with simple expansion to fit future business needs. The configurations serve customers who need anywhere from 8TB to half a petabyte of online shared storage, essentially solving the storage challenges of any broadcaster through a single, common platform.
Harris will demonstrate NEXIO Farad at the show, taking place from September 7-11 at the RAI Exhibition Center in Amsterdam (Stand 7.G20).
“Many of our customers are scaling their storage applications from simpler workstation philosophies to enterprise-level strategies that support future growth,” said Paul Eisner, vice president, engineering and product line management, Harris Broadcast Communications. “Harris is consolidating its storage platform so customers can choose a single product that scales from the smallest to the largest requirements, including a new entry-level protection scheme that is typically the high-end solution for similar products on the market.”
All NEXIO Farad storage configurations feature RAID (redundant array of independent disks) technology to combine multiple hard drives into logical units for the most efficient system performance. Harris NEXIO Farad with RAID-601 storage protection is ideal for large-scale ingest, editing and playout applications for production, sports, news and live events.
The new bandwidth enhancements to NEXIO Farad with RAID-601 multiply performance benefits while retaining the resiliency and high system availability afforded through Harris’ patented Intrinsic Mirroring technology. Intrinsic Mirroring, an integral part of NEXIO Farad with RAID-601 configurations, maximizes system redundancy by protecting content across two identical storage area networks — eliminating manual processes to back up data and minimizing on-air disruptions.
The new NEXIO Farad configuration provides industry-accepted RAID-60 technology that combines robust RAID-6 data protection and RAID-0 file “striping” that linearly increases bandwidth as users add storage arrays. It offers very high value to customers seeking to add storage capacity, improve ingest-to-air time and reduce their hardware footprint in small-to-medium sized operations.
Visitors to the stand can see NEXIO Farad in use with Harris NEXIO® servers, Velocity™ editors and other Harris workflow solutions.
