The Promise Technology VTA3800FDM VTrak A-Class Turnkey SAN File System Solution provides a single-vendor solution that is as easy to setup, configure, and manage as it is on the pocketbook.

Whether you need added capacity or increased high-speed access to the data, the VTA3800FDM VTrak A-Class Turnkey SAN Filesystem Solution provides the needed flexibility. The system seamlessly supports petabytes of data in a single namespace. SAN performance is delivered via Fibre Channel connectivity with the optional ability to expand to NAS access via NFS and CIFS. The VTrak A-Class interoperates seamlessly no matter what set of applications share the storage pool and is supported by all major operating systems including Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows.

This system allows complete file sharing across all aspects of the workflow without the need for multiple storage systems. It supports simultaneous shared reads and writes for online editing, color grading, graphics work, offline editing, transcoding, and more.

This Turnkey SAN Filesystem Solution delivers high-performance file sharing for nearly all aspects of Media and Entertainment, including video, film, and broadcast. The appliances combine to create a flexible multi-application ecosystem able to share files across the SAN or LAN from Mac OS X, Linux, or Windows applications.
