GB Labs Announces Plans For NAB Show New York

News Image
GB Labs has unveiled its plans for the upcoming NAB Show New York 2019 later this month.

The intelligent storage solutions developer will introduce the new 25 GbE connectivity for its FastNAS storage systems and showcase its Dynamic Bandwidth Control feature.

Explaining more about the new 25 GbE connectivity, GB Labs CEO-CTO Dominic Harland said: "The current fiber link standard is approximately 10 GbE. To fully exploit the speed and power of our FastNAS storage system, we have developed connectivity that delivers a proven 2.3 GB/s from server to desktop, which is more than enough to handle 4K workflows."
 
The 25 GbE FastNAS advances, designed by GB Labs, can use existing LC fiber channel cabling infrastructures, which means that no additional devices or technologies are required, nor is it necessary to rebuild an infrastructure.
 
The FastNAS range is now shipping in 25 GbE configurations, with optional dual-25 GbE port versions available for most models. Media production storage systems are available in FastNAS F-8 Nitro Studio; FastNAS F-8 Nitro; FastNAS F-16; FastNAS F-16 Nitro and FastNAS F-16 Nitro MAX configurations.
 
GB Labs will also feature Dynamic Bandwidth Control, a proprietary process only available from GB Labs, that enables system clients to prioritize the use and capacity of available bandwidth. Client storage with most systems is capped to preserve capacity for priority users, irrespective of whether it is being used. Storage that is reserved but not used restricts the performance of others who could make beneficial use of the additional capacity.
 
GB Labs' Dynamic Bandwidth Control quickly identifies and selects high, medium, and low priority users to constantly balance performance. This guarantees that the entire system is operating at peak performance at all times.
 
Also on show, is the Mosaic automatic asset organizer and Analytics Centre. Mosaic integrates AI tagging to automatically scan inbuilt metadata to quickly identify and categorize content without having to manually enter metadata. Analytics Centre provides network visibility that identifies exactly how data is being used and by whom, thereby providing detailed, high-level analysis of system-wide usage, plus optimization recommendations.

The NAB Show New York 2019 will take place at the Jacob Javits Center from 16-17 October.

GB Labs will be available at Booth N359 during the show.
