Facilis To Display HUB Shared Storage System at IBC 2019

News Image
Facilis has announced that IBC2019 will see the first European presentation of its newly shipped HUB Shared Storage System, and previews of version 8.0 HUB software management.

Built as an entirely new platform, Facilis HUB represents the evolution of the Facilis Shared File System with the block-level virtualization and multi-connectivity performance required for demanding media production workflows. Additionally, version 7.2 of the Facilis system software and FastTracker 3.0 is now available and included in all HUB systems.

"The newest HUB Server boasts incredible performance that, when compared to other systems of a similar performance, enters at an incredible price point. The Tyrell team have always been fans of Facilis and we are excited by the potential of this system," said Dan Muchmore, Sales and Marketing Director, Tyrell.

Tommy Sassenberg, Technical Director, Story House, said: "After successfully having used Facilis shared storage systems for a number of years, updating to the new HUB solution was a logical choice. The integration of the new system into our edit facility has been seamless and very easy. The new architecture offers not only a significant increase in speed, but we're also seeing much improved stability and reliability. Continuing to rely with our post production on a Facilis shared storage system has again absolutely been the right decision for Story House."

Facilis Object Cloud and FastTracker
New innovations on stand 7.B48 include Facilis Object Cloud which virtualizes Cloud and LTO storage into a cache volume on the server, available on the client desktops through the Facilis Shared File System.
"When object storage is combined with FastTracker auto-indexing and proxy generation, it becomes a very powerful way to archive, track and restore project data through a simple, familiar interface," said Jim McKenna, VP Sales and Marketing at Facilis. "The object storage cache looks and acts like any other volume but has infinite storage behind it!"

Facilis version 7.2 new features:
Facilis Object Cloud - Brings Object Storage to the server and client desktop
Added Kernel Support for Linux - New support for Linux Kernel 5.0.x
Improved Web Console UI - Dark mode, more bulk actions, storage tab and much more.
Simplified Server Upgrade - New “one click, one reboot” server installer.
