JMR Shows Mac Storage Systems

SAN FRANCISCO -- JMR Electronics, Inc., a leading value provider of scalable storage systems for video and data intensive applications, will showcase their new line of Mac-compatible 16-bay BlueStor PeSAN™ RAID and 8-bay BlueStor 888™ storage solutions at the 2009 Macworld Conference and Expo in San Francisco, January 5th - 9th.

The BlueStor PeSAN RAID line was developed to be the ultimate in high-performance Direct Attached Storage or Networked Attached Storage for data intensive IT applications as well as content creation, VOD, video editing and 2K/4K Digital Intermediate (DI) film applications requiring extremely high sustained throughput and reliability. A single 16-bay 3U RAID array with up to 16TB using SATA HDDs (or 4.8TB using SAS HDDs), delivers over 1,400 MB/s – making it ideal for encoding, multi-stream SD/HD real-time editing, and 2K DI applications. For collaborative or multi-stream SD/HD and 2K/4K DI workflows requiring even higher performance and scalable storage, BlueStor PeSAN powered RAIDs can achieve up to 4,000 MB/s and be expanded to over 4,000 TB using the current JMR PeSAN technology.

As with all other BlueStor 3U rackmount products, the system utilizes hot-swappable, lightweight, vibration-dampening resin disk drive canisters with integrated light pipes, latching handles and EMI shields. These are interchangeable amongst all BlueStor 3U rackmounts. The unit also features N+1 hot-swappable cooling elements with centrifugal blowers mounted in noise and vibration-dampening resin modules and N+1 hot-swappable power supplies which are also interchangeable with other BlueStor products for simplified, low-cost spares programs.
