da Vinci and SGI complete qualification testing

da Vinci and SGI has announced that the two companies have completed qualification testing of SGI InfiniteStorage Shared Filesystem CXFS on a storage area network (SAN) with da Vinci Systems' Resolve digital mastering suite.
Designed to process extremely large files such as those used in DI processes,
Resolve delivers exceptional workflow flexibility and performance fully realised with a high-performance network. Their recently completed testing shows that SGI CXFS Filesystem delivers the performance benchmarks to confirm that Resolve is able to run two streams of 2K data simultaneously in real time over a SAN using CXFS. SANs can be configured with CXFS to provide enough bandwidth to satisfy the needs of multiple Resolve systems as well as other editing, compositing, and creative tools in a facility.
CXFS enables multiple computers running different operating systems to directly access a single shared 64-bit file system within a SAN, allowing all systems in the environment to access the same file simultaneously at local or near-local disk speeds. CXFS improves data workflow by providing customers the performance and scalability of a SAN with the file sharing and connectivity of network-attached storage, addressing two fundamental challenges in data management: fast access to information and seamless integration of multiple operating systems.
Resolve is da Vinci's digital mastering suite, featuring da Vinci's Emmy Award-winning image enhancement expertise and familiar interface packaged with nonlinear conforming tools. It is designed specifically for the DI postproduction environment and utilises a totally nonlinear approach that allows greater flexibility and speed while leveraging the power of da Vinci's well-known toolset. da Vinci's partnership with SGI and the CXFS system underscores how seamlessly Resolve's open architecture allows easy integration with other systems.
