Harris Ramps up Efficiency, Performance of NEXIO Farad

As IBC 2012 approaches, Harris Broadcast Communications establishes a common shared storage platform that adds a significant 50% bandwidth improvement to its NEXIO Farad™ online storage solution — and introduces a second storage protection scheme with a lower cost of entry. 

 

The expanded configurations build on the early global success of NEXIO Farad, allowing broadcasters and media organizations to work quicker and build the storage environment they need today — with simple expansion to fit future business needs.  The configurations serve customers who need anywhere from 8TB to half a petabyte of online shared storage, essentially solving the storage challenges of any broadcaster through a single, common platform. 

All NEXIO Farad storage configurations feature RAID (redundant array of independent disks) technology to combine multiple hard drives into logical units for the most efficient system performance.  Harris NEXIO Farad with RAID-601 storage protection is ideal for large-scale ingest, editing and playout applications for production, sports, news and live events. 

The new bandwidth enhancements to NEXIO Farad with RAID-601 multiply performance benefits while retaining the resiliency and high system availability afforded through Harris’ patented Intrinsic Mirroring technology.  Intrinsic Mirroring, an integral part of NEXIO Farad with RAID-601 configurations, maximizes system redundancy by protecting content across two identical storage area networks — eliminating manual processes to back up data and minimizing on-air disruptions.

The new NEXIO Farad configuration provides industry-accepted RAID-60 technology that combines robust RAID-6 data protection and RAID-0 file “striping” that linearly increases bandwidth as users add storage arrays.  It offers very high value to customers seeking to add storage capacity, improve ingest-to-air time and reduce their hardware footprint in small-to-medium sized operations.
