R&S SpycerNode is the first storage product on the M&E market to feature high performance computing (HPC), said the company
To meet the demands of today’s media environments, storage solutions must satisfy high requirements, in terms of scalability and workflow integration. In particular, it is crucial that users can access media files immediately, said Rohde & Schwarz.
Thus, the company is offering R&S SpycerNode, which is equipped with an easy-to-use interface, an HPC file system, erasure coding mechanisms and many more functions that let users focus on their creative work. In addition, Rohde & Schwarz has expanded its Web-based device manager for use with R&S SpycerNode to simplify system configuration and maintenance.
R&S SpycerNode also features IBM Spectrum Scale, which simplifies and optimises storage workflows using features such as single namespace, online scalability and information lifecycle management.
The R&S SpycerNode stores files intelligently based on performance requirements. All R&S SpycerNode storage tiers are presented under a single namespace, which greatly simplifies file handling. The storage solution can be scaled as needed, even during operation. R&S SpycerNode provides scalability irrespective of the system size, starting with the smallest unit up to large systems. As a result, there is no need to exchange or replace existing units, according to Rohde & Schwarz.
