What does it do? By marrying data-management software with purpose-built hardware, it is claimed to provide the processing power of enterprise-level IT departments in a box. It is also able to integrate with any major disk subsystem or tape library.

How does it work? The combination of StorNext’s metadata software and dedicated hardware enables the device to simultaneously share and access large video data files and route them at fibre channel speeds over a storage area network.
