HoneyShed Uses JMR Electronics BlueStor Storage System

JMR Electronics Inc, a premier supplier of storage and server platforms for OEMs, systems integrators and VARS, has announced that its BlueStor External PCle RAID Storage System with PeSAN Technology has been in use at HoneyShed as part of their post-production process.
HoneyShed, which will launch in Q3 of this year, is the first interactive web-site designed to connect a generation that lives online to the popular large brands they love, via world-class video content. The web-site's look and feel is similar to QVC meets MTV and targets a wide expense of the younger demographic, selling everything from hip clothing and high-tech gadgets to a Volvo C30 car.
HoneyShed had previously used two non-scalable eSATA Direct Attached Storage arrays connected to a Mac workstation with Final Cut Pro and Pro Tools, called the Assistant Edit Station, to store their content. The Assistant Edit Station was in turn connected to a Gigabit Ethernet switch and network to four other Edit Bays, each with a similar Final Cut Pro enabled Mac workstation equipped with 2TB of internal storage.
Firewire drives were used to transport raw footage from the DVCPRO HD cameras to the main storage repository where the content could be accessed by the edit workstation.
JMR's BlueStor PeSAN Technology is a wide bandwidth, high performance expandable storage using a switched architecture that avoids costly storage bus bridges or components like SCSI or Fibre Channel. The feature-rich direct attached or networked attached BlueStor solution utilises off-the-shelf PCle RAID cards from a variety of popular manufacturers, all of whom are 100% compatibility tested.
SAS or SATA disk drives can be used interchangeably in the array allowing for very diverse customisation options.
Disk drives are installed vertically rather than horizontally to improve SAS signal integrity and to maximise airflow, resulting in the coolest-operating disk drives possible.
Only one multilane cable is used in the data path in order to maintain the flexibility of interchangeable RAID controllers. The PeSAN solution delivers extremely high performance and availability and its cost-efficient implementation drives storage costs down to well below one dollar per gigabyte.
