SymplyULTRA. ULTRA Flexible Design No Compromises 10GbE and 16Gb FC Collaboration

Symply Inc. announced the SymplyULTRA, the next evolution of the collaborative storage workspace. It is a collaborative ‘workspace’ – developed from technologies including Xeon multi-core processors and a bedrock Linux OS.

The architecture features a software-defined virtualized RAID and application hosting environment that eply integrates HA Quantum StorNext5 integration with nearly unlimited tuning and optimization capabilities. This combination allows SymplyULTRA to deliver on the concept of the ‘complete collaborative workspace’ – an inclusive collaboration environment for FC and Ethernet users. While ensuring truly collaboration and connectivity, the system is designed for performance.

With eight 16Gb FC ports users can handle the demands of online 4K editing, while eight additional 10GbE ports are provided for proxy editing, graphics, review and other lower bandwidth operations that are for Ethernet. Broadcasters, film studios, post-production houses, and other media creatives will experience a level of flexibility, efficiency, and workflow collaboration capabilities.
“Today there are many choices for workflow storage, and until now you either had to compromise on performance, space, or price, but SymplyULTRA and the workspace concept truly changes the game.” said Alex Grossman, president and CEO, Symply. “We are taking system integration to a new level and bringing the power of Quantum StorNext to small workgroups that likely wanted the best sharing solution, but could not afford it. With SymplyULTRA you no longer have to compromise on quality, redundancy, performance, or interface type, it’s all here.”
Unlike many integrated storage solutions sold for media, SymplyULTRA is built on a enterprise hardware platform that offers HA operation. It delivers not just RAID protection, but redundant RAID controllers, redundant metadata controllers and IP re-share servers, all presented in one 2U system. 4U expansion systems can be added to provide workspaces above 1PB.
Workflow storage deployment is easy with SymplyULTRA – the integrated platform is managed by an all-new application called SymplyR (Real-Time Management). SymplyRis workflow management tool that combines the setup and management of StorNext and all RAID management steps into a single operation. Users can deploy systems locally or around the world. SymplyULTRA is available in a range of configurations to meet a variety of requirements depending on performance, capacity and number of users – all backed by the company’s storage and workflow experts and integrators and resellers worldwide.
SymplyULTRA is shipping, as is its companion RAID-only product SymplyIO.

Some models offer up to five-year warranty and five years of maintenance.
