to redeem a free petabyte of storage
Valhalla, N.Y., April 13, 2016 – FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of FUJIFILM Corporation, the leading global manufacturer of data storage media, today announced that it will exhibit Dternity and the new StrongBox VM at the 2016 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show beginning April 16 in Las Vegas. NAB attendees can join live demonstrations, and have questions answered by Fujifilm engineers in the South Lower Hall at booth SL7613.
Fujifilm’s new StrongBox VM is a storage gateway solution that provides protected and archive storage for unstructured data. As a virtual machine, StrongBox VM enables users to take advantage of their current storage hardware, which eliminates additional hardware and maintenance expenses. IT professionals can now turn existing tape libraries into a Network Attached Storage (NAS) for nearline and archive storage, or use StrongBox VM as a gateway to replicate off-site or to the Dternity Media Cloud. By combining flash, disk, and LTFS tape into a streamlined, cost-effective solution, StrongBox VM helps users protect their data on-site, off-site, or in the cloud.
Dternity’s complete storage solution
Fujifilm will also demonstrate the Dternity NAS, its on-site storage appliance that now offers Partial File Restore for media and entertainment customers. Partial File Restore allows segments of specific media files to be quickly restored and utilized from many hours of footage. By retrieving timecode-based segments, production teams can now avoid moving whole files to find individual shots, thus minimizing the use of storage resources and speeding up the production process. It allows media professionals to access only the clip they need and avoid the hassle of sifting through hours of content on disk, tape or in the cloud. Attendees that visit Fujifilm booth SL7613 and watch a short Dternity demonstration will be eligible to win a free petabyte of Dternity storage.
Groundbreaking LTO Ultrium 7 tape media
Fujifilm will also showcase its next generation FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium 7 data cartridge that uses Barium Ferrite (BaFe), and has been qualified by the LTO technology provider companies for commercial production and is available now. FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium 7 has a compressed storage capacity of 15.0TB with a transfer rate of 750MB/sec assuming 2.5:1 compression ratio. This capacity achievement represents a 2.4X increase over the outgoing LTO-6 generation.
