TerraBlock

TerraBlock is an industry-leading shared storage system dedicated to post-production and content creation workflows. The Facilis Shared File System included with every TerraBlock easily accommodates the most complex multi-platform environments and enables collaboration among diverse applications and image formats. With TerraBlock, DO IT ALL - From 4K film color grading to HDV craft editorial, TerraBlock provides the performance to get the job done.

Key Features
  • RESIZE YOUR PROJECT-BASED VOLUMES FOR EFFICIENT USE OF SPACE

    With TerraBlock, volumes can be made of any size, and the size can be increased or reduced on the fly, as the project requires. Project-based volumes offer low-level media management, ease of permissions allocation and security, and a familiar workflow.
  • CONNECT WITH 8/16Gb FIBRE CHANNEL & 1/10Gb ETHERNET

    Access image and audio data through various connectivity methods to fit your particular requirements and budget. Client workstations can connect directly to the TerraBlock or through cost-effective network and fabric switches.
  • MANAGE USERS THROUGH ACTIVE DIRECTORY & LDAP

    Easily synchronize TerraBlock users with Active Directory groups within specific organizational units. Add multiple volume permissions to entire groups in a single step, and manage all user account creation and deletion from a single location.
  • SELECT THE RIGHT DATA SHARING METHOD FOR YOUR WORKFLOW

    Dynamically designate volumes to be shared through the Facilis Shared File System for collaborative multi-platform access over Fibre Channel and Ethernet, or volume-locked sharing for ultra-high performance up to 1.5GB/sec over 16Gb Fibre Channel.
  • ACCESS ULTRA-HIGH PERFORMANCE FOR THE MOST INTENSE 4K JOBS

    TerraBlock was the first shared storage system to deliver shared uncompressed HD, and Facilis continues that tradition by enabling the most demanding 2K and 4K workflows through Single-user Write and up to 2160p UHD support on Multi-user Write on a single 5u chassis.
  • NEVER PAY A PER-SEAT LICENSE OR 3rd PARTY FEE

    TerraBlock is the first and only shared file system available over fibre channel and Ethernet without per-seat licensing. Connect up to 100 Ethernet and Fibre Channel clients at no additional cost and no 3rd party fees.
  • SECURE YOUR FILES WITH DYNARAID DATA PROTECTION

    Customize data protection on a per-Virtual Volume basis, and change or remove that protection without loss of primary data. RAID5 protection takes only 9% overhead and available cross-server mirroring doubles your data security.
  • BENEFIT FROM VIRTUAL VOLUME CONSISTENCY & CARE FREE OPERATION

    Disk set virtualization delivers dynamic project-based volume creation, expansion and reduction. Virtual Volumes are tolerant to fragmentation and impervious to speed degradation. Maintain 100% performance even when TerraBlock is 100% full.
