Symply Demonstrate Industry’s First Affordable High-Speed Multi-User StorNext®6 Powered Thunderbolt™

SymplyWORKSPACE technology demonstrates company’s innovative Thunderbolt™3 shared storage platform capable of 4K editing and 8 simultaneous Thunderbolt™3 clients.

With the high adoption rates of Thunderbolt equipped workstations and laptops being used in media production, being able to connect high-speed shared storage has not been easy and requires expensive and bulky adapters. SymplyWORKSPACE allows laptops and workstations equipped with Thunderbolt™3 to ingest, edit, finish, and deliver without the need to move content locally, even at 4K resolutions with a direct Thunderbolt™3 cable connection, and with no adapter needed.

Based on industry leading Quantum StorNext®6 sharing software, users can reliably connect up to 8 laptops and workstations to the system using a standard Thunderbolt with no additional hardware or adapters, and share video files, graphics and other data files instantly.

One of the early limitations of Thunderbolt™3 has been the short cable length from storage to workstation. With the introduction of Corning® optical cable technology, users can now be tens of metres away from the SymplyWORKSPACE.

While the company has not announced pricing or availability, the systems are expected to start under $10,000 USD for 48TB and up to four users, making the solution perfect for smaller post-production houses, in-house creative, houses of worship, sports teams, ad agencies, and any creative user facility with more than one user looking for high-speed sharing at an affordable price.
