After showings at previous NAB Shows, the company returns to the 2022 exhibition with  a line rich media storage solutions, including the live demonstration of Pegasus Series’ ability to fully support Mac Studio and Studio Display.

The proliferation of rich media products and services fueled by the massive migration of digital services online over the past 2 years has increased demands on faster, more efficient and higher production values from creatives, broadcasters, marketers and the content community as a whole.

The VTrak N-Series is Promise’s first NAS storage solution optimized for post-production workflow and team sharing. We are excited to debut the VTrak N1008 tower and N1616 3U offerings, and demo the Pegasus32 which fully supports the brand-new Mac Studio desktop. These solutions are aligned with NAB’s ‘Where Content Comes to Life’ theme, while building on years of Promise’s experience and expertise with rich media storage systems throughout the digital media revolution,” said Alice Chang, CMO.

Ultimate media collaboration
The VTrak N-Series is a NAS with performance optimization and file sharing for rich media and production teams for collaborative workflow features on Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Autodesk Flame, and other professional editing software. It offers teams the options for either 10Gb/s or 25Gb/s ports, with 10bE connecting shared asset storage to team workstations.

In addition, the N-Series installs performance NVMe for caching or tiering, using either FileBoost or TierBoost technology for storage performance. These performance specs are packaged together with simple user interfaces for data administration and rich media team access, but remain a cost-efficient NAS solution. The VTrak N-Series is powered by the company’s RAID engine, which is known for stability and performance while enabling easy backup to both NAS and cloud storage.

The VTrak N1008 tower can take on 10GbE of up to 4 ports without frame drop. With NVMe cache, it boasts a RW throughput of up to 4.2GB/2GB/s and teams can choose between several configurations: 4x10G Base-T ports, 4x10G SFP+ ports, or 2x25G SFP28 ports.

N1008 also features FileBoost technology, which enables fast file transfer and sharing among team members, improving post-production workflow efficiency on 4K and 8K productions.

Supercharged performance with TierBoost

Promise Tierboost Scheme 2204Meanwhile, the TierBoost-powered VTrak N1616 3U boasts a read/write throughput of up to 6GB/3GB/s with the options of 8x10G Base-T ports, 8x10G SFP+ ports, or 4x25G SFP28 ports.

TierBoost is a data tier management service that automatically classifies data by frequency of access available on the VTrak N1616. ‘Hot’ data is migrated to the fastest tier (NVMe SSD), ‘warm’ data to the middle tier (SATA SSD), and ‘cold’ data in the lower priority tier (SATA HDD).

VTrak N1616 users can automatically or manually classify digital assets for efficient use over their network, with the most frequently used files in the most rapid tier. It leverages intelligent tiering to deliver performance on SSD and large capacity on HDD – TierBoost’s 3-tier design is engineered to meet rich media teams’ performance and capacity demands.

Mac Studio support and NAB demos
Attendees will be able to view demos of the Thunderbolt port performance from Pegasus32 and PegasusPro’s connection with Mac Studio. The Mac Studio setup will showcase the first macOS Driverkit based DEXT driver running in the user space, replacing KEXT kernel extensions, which improves system stability and security.

The company currently supports all Mac platforms including Mac Studio, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, iMac, Mac Pro with either x86 or M1, M1 Pro/MAX/ULTRA, and macOS 12 OSs.

The firm’s booth will also feature interactive demos of its performance solutions such as its sustainable JBOD, the VTrak J5960 as well as both PegasusPro and Pegasus R4i/J2i storage devices.

Optimized for massive shared storage and data backup, the J5960 is a ‘green’ high-density and high-capacity 20TB HDD with the capacity to support over 1PB per chassis. The company will be running a joint demo with Toshiba 18TB.

Meanwhile, the FileBoost demo with PegasusPro will display the simplification of video team collaboration with faster copying for both editing and team volumes. The attendees will also experience how Pegasus R4i and Pegasus2i internal storages customized for Mac Pro to provide end-to-end solution to creative professionals. Each demo will showcase how the firm constantly and repeatedly delivers sustainable performance on each product without frame drop.

VTrak N-Series enhances the existing suite of the firm’s rich media solutions such as Pegasus Pro Series, Pegasus32 Series, PegasusR4i and J2i internal storages, VTrak D5000 Series, Vess R3000 Series, and the Green JBOD VTrak J5960.
