Quobyte Introduces Parallel Distributed File System

Apr 10, 2018

Quobyte Inc., a developer of hyperscale storage system software, announced the availability of Quobyte’s parallel distributed file system to meet the performance, scalability, and collaboration challenges of the Media & Entertainment (M&E) industry.

Quobyte is leveraging hyperscaler technology to unify file, block, and object storage. Each person in the workflow, whether on a Mac, Windows, or Linux machine can access the same rich media asset with standard industry software applications or a Media Asset Management (MAM) infrastructure. This allows Post Production, Visual Effects, and Playout workflows to reduce administrative overhead while providing secure data integrity for collaboration across the entire workflow chain.

The system continuously monitors and detects hardware failures, operator errors, network partitions, and disk corruption. End-to-end checksums protect all file data, metadata, and communications, providing data integrity and eliminating the need for hardware and software RAID controllers.
