Stream counts are based on Multi-user Write RAID5 Virtual Volumes at 100% full. TerraBlock’s virtualization maintains full stream count even at full capacity and at high levels of fragmentation. TerraBlock supports a diverse array of workflows, from 4K DPX color grading to low-bitrate  editorial for web broadcast. Your connectivity choice is based on your workflow requirements, not the architecture of the storage. 1Gb Ethernet clients collaborate with 16Gb Fibre Channel clients on the same writable volumes, at a fraction of the cost. Share the Performance - TerraBlock.
