  • FastTRACKER INTEGRATED ASSET TRACKING

    Create custom catalogs, assign permissions and add metadata into a fully searchable database with FFMPEG codec library and integrated preview player with DPX support.
  • MULTI-PLATFORM SHARED FILE SYSTEM

    Apple OSX, Windows and Linux workstations access the same writable volume without 3rd party software or per seat licensing, external metadata controllers or complex networking.
  • 8/16Gbit FIBRE CHANNEL & 1/10/40Gbit ETHERNET

    Choose the speed of access to your video and audio files with multiple methods of connectivity to suit your bandwidth needs and budget. Clients connect directly to the server or through a switch.
  • UNITY-STYLE AVID PROJECT & MEDIA SHARING

    Native, application-level Avid Unity-Style Media Composer project sharing as well as interactive Adobe Premiere project sharing through the Facilis Project Manager.
  • SELECTABLE DATA SHARING METHODS

    Through software, choose whether each virtual volume is designated as file-level for total collaboration or volume-level for ultra-high performance data sharing
  • INTEGRATED NEARLINE & BACKUP

    Back-up, replicate and mirror through SyncBlock right from the server desktop. Utilize RAID6 nearline storage through the Facilis Shared File System, and schedule project back-ups to LTO and ftp or cloud services.
  • NO PER-SEAT LICENSES OR 3RD PARTY FEES

    While most shared storage system providers charge you for expanding your client count, Facilis allows you to connect TerraBlock to up to 250 Fibre Channel and Ethernet clients with no additional license or support costs.
  • CASCADING VOLUME EXPANSION

    Easily add capacity while maintaining volume structure with cascading volumes, Grow existing volumes into new drive groups, SAS expansion units or other TerraBlock servers.
  • DYNARAID DATA PROTECTION

    TerraBlock delivers the most efficient data protection at 9% overhead for RAID5. Protection type is selectable per-volume and can be changed on the fly.
