Infortrend win Future’s Best of Show Award at NAB 2019
Infortrend All-flash SAN-in-a-Box solution is the recipient of Future’s Best of Show Award, presented at the 2019 NAB Show by Video Edge. The solution is pushing the boundaries of workflow efficiency by showcasing a high-bandwidth 2 x 25Gb iSCSI SAN solution along with EonStor GSa AFA (All-Flash Array) that supports up to six 8K DPX streams. Infortrend is demonstrating this turnkey solution with ATTO Technology for today’s demanding media collaboration environments.


With the proliferation of high-definition production and delivery formats such as 8K and beyond, media storage systems not only require unprecedented IOPs performance and also demands a faster and efficient I/O to exchange data across networks.


A single 25GbE lane offers 2.5x bandwidth and is backward compatible with 10GbE. With two 25Gb/s Ethernet ports per host board, Infortrend storage offers our M&E customers a high bandwidth over Ethernet networks. In terms of full system configuration, a dual controller GSa 3000 system can support of up to eight 25Gb/s Ethernet ports with two host boards per controller.


In terms of all-flash performance, Infortrend’s next-generation AFA, EonStor GSa Family, optimizes SSD performance, reduces latency, and extends SSD life. GSa can reach more than 700K IOPS with response time of less than 0.5 milliseconds. GSa offers no single point of failure technology (redundant controller hardware) and is fully capable of taking on the 24/7 critical media operation. GSa 2024 AFA was recently awarded a prestigious 5-Star review from IT Pro.


Future’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of industry experts and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. Future publishes more than 50 magazines in fields such as technology, films, broadcast, professional video, and are best known for publications such as Tom’s Hardware, T3, and Gizmodo.
