When used with the G-Tech PCIe 4x RAID controller, a single G-SPEED eS supports up to (4) simultaneous streams of ProRes422 HQ or (1) stream of uncompressed 1080/60i. As many as four G-SPEED eS enclosures can be attached to a single workstation providing up to 64TB of high-performance RAID protected storage. The G-Tech PCIe 4x RAID controller supports RAID 0, 1, 5 and JBOD, and is configured and monitored via a full featured web GUI. Storage for multi-stream compressed HD production has never been easier or more affordable!
G-Tech 4-Port, PCIe x4 RAID Controller
When used with the G-Tech PCIe x4 RAID controller (sold separately), G-SPEED eS can easily be configured as a RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 or as a JBOD. This flexibility enables the system to be tuned to the required level of performance and fault-tolerance necessary to support your application. G-SPEED eS can also be set up as a software RAID or JBOD when used with third party port multiplier aware eSATA host adapters.
The G-Tech PCIe x4 RAID controller has a built-in Web GUI that is accessed via any local internet browser. This simple GUI is used to configure and monitor the RAID system. Many aspects of the system are monitored and in the event of a problem, G-SPEED eS can send an email message to you alerting you of trouble.
