Join EditShare at NAB 2019 | Booth # SL8016

Today we are heading for the storage stratosphere with installs routinely hitting 1PB and beyond. The exponential increase of file size and quantity, together with the ever-expanding variety of formats and hi-res codecs, has made high-performance media engineered storage essential. Security has leapfrogged many other industry concerns to arrive at the top of the list: now a prerequisite for doing business in post-production pipelines. Global delivery formats, a long-time fantasy for many organisations, will become a reality in 2019 with the broader adoption of the industry-changing IMF. Increases in internet speed and improvements in file-sharing technologies have continued to dissolve distance, making remote collaboration a viable option.

New for NAB 2019 Include many feature enhancements including:
EFS ACL Media Spaces

An exciting new EFS storage capability is the Access Control List (ACL) Media Space. This feature was developed to satisfy organizations that manage storage using ACLs, instead of the simple, “read-only” or “read/write” rules that govern current EFS Media Spaces. With ACLs, all users typically mount a single “Media Space” and then, within that Media Space, a particular user can see into specific Active Directories (ADs) or not, depending on how the ACL is set on that directory for that user.

EFS File Auditing

Recent high profile content thefts at Sony Pictures, Netflix, and HBO were a wakeup call for the entire Media & Entertainment segment. EFS File Auditing answers the question, “Who did what, to which of my files, and when did they do it?”

EFS Performance Improvements

In the latest versions of EditShare storage, users will note many EFS performance improvementsincluding:

  • Improved single stream READs and Writes between Single Node EFS storage and MacOSworkstations.
  • Improved reading of file-per-frame content when making copies elsewhere.
  • Improved movement of many files with MacOS workstations.
  • Improved application of new storage goals to media spaces.
