Ciprico Debuts Latest RAID Storage

The Next Level in High Performance, Scalable RAID Storage

Ciprico Inc. introduces its newest MediaVaultä RAID array—the MediaVaultä 4440

The MediaVault 4440 is an innovative new product that delivers the next level in high performance, scalable RAID storage designed for the desktop or portable media applications including non-linear editing, real-time 2K and 4K film playback and comforming, uncompressed HD capture to disk and digital intermediate. The unit is configured with four removable vPODs or Video Pods, each containing its own 4Gb Fibre Channel controller and ten 2.5 inch SATA disk drives for a total of four channels and forty drives, resulting in a combined data transfer rate of over 1GB/s and a total capacity of up to 6.4TB. The benefit will be evident to users who travel for location shooting, remote editing or post production and the need to be able to transport content securely, compactly and easily. The use of the 2.5” disk drives is instrumental to the portability feature as these drives are designed for use in the ultimate portable environment—laptop computers. As such, their environmental specifications make them perfect for the 4440. To withstand the rigors of transport via checked baggage or common carrier, such as FedEx or UPS, Ciprico also offers customized, high impact shipping containers specifically designed for shipping canisters or the entire 4440.
