The latest iteration of HyperSpace will support flexible on-premise, hybrid and cloud-based workflows.
GB Labs will give visitors to NAB Show 2022 the first look at HyperSpace Generation 3, the latest iteration of its rack-based SSD accelerator.
Now delivering double the performance and an exponential increase in flexibility compared to the previous version, HyperSpace claims to give users access to the fastest data rates on the market when combined with GB Labs SPACE and SPACE+.
With HyperSpace Generation 3, GB Labs delivers more robust, faster and smarter algorithms that aim to meet the shifting real-world needs.
HyperSpace Generation 3 delivers a significant uptick in performance compared to previous versions. The combination of this new technology with GB Labs’ SPACE or SPACE+ gives creative teams performance of up to 9GB/s for simultaneous read and write tasks.
Now shipping, HyperSpace Generation 3 eliminates the need for customers to install additional racks of storage to support ‘peaky’ usage. Instead, this GB Labs solution delivers storage enhancements without increasing the environmental impact in an additional 1RU. HyperSpace Generation 3 aims to satisfy the needs of even the busiest facility, regardless of whether creative teams are working on-site, or accessing data via hybrid or cloud-based workflows. Together with SPACE, HyperSpace Generation 3 delivers the equivalent performance of numerous spinning disk drives and provides a three to ten times reduction in power consumption.
Dominic Harland, CEO and CTO, GB Labs commented: “Today’s production and post-production workflows are becoming increasingly complex, and facilities must manage users on-site, working remotely and via cloud platforms. While our customers’ operations have evolved, what has not changed is the need for zero downtime or compromises to the seamless running of a workflow. This means the demands on storage systems have drastically increased; add in the growing demand for collaborative, remote and home working and the strain on shared storage soon mounts up and places a significant load on available bandwidth. HyperSpace Generation 3 not only supercharges the performance of customers’ existing SPACE products – a game-changer, it also provides a more sustainable solution for a true, agile working environment and a flexible future.”The latest iteration of HyperSpace will support flexible on-premise, hybrid and cloud-based workflows.
