iNAS_12_SIDE.jpg “The ExtremeStor-DI is the ideal solution for CPU intensive content and storage!”
The demand for Digital Intermediate solutions has taken a turn to the extreme in the digital film and video marketplace. Digital Intermediate skyrocketed and quickly transitioned as the new industry standard for most applications. Globalstor has worked hard to develop it’s next generation line of Digital Intermediate capture and playback servers. We listened to what our customers had to say and integrated many of their ideas into our latest line of workstations and servers. By doing so, Globalstor once again achieved success with the next generation of its flagship ExtremeStor workstations and servers. They are faster than ever before and offer greater scalability than any other system available today. Now post-production facilities, independent editors, colorists and cinematographers can reap the rewards of the DI’s best of breed architecture.

The ExtremeStor-DI 10 drive workstation is designed for real-time capture and playback of un-compressed 2K content and is certified to work with the industry’s leading providers of feature rich, high performance graphics, capture, and playback cards as well as the best open platform color grading, editing and visual effects technologies the industry has to offer. Featuring an integrated 10 drive disk array with capacities up to 40TB and read/write speeds up to 1400MB/Sec, the ExtremeStor-DI 10 drive Workstation is an ideal platform for workflows that require a high performance workstation with minimal upfront investment. By utilizing the benefits of SATA III disk drives, users can expect their cost per gigabyte to be well within their budget, making the next generation of ExtremeStor series workstations and servers the most attractive ROI in your digital intermediate workflow.


Extreme Performance
The ExtremeStor series of workstations and servers integrate your choice of single or dual Intel processors for maximized computing power. Featuring PCI-Express 3.0 x16 video bus support and integrated hardware RAID, the ExtremeStor-DI 10 bay delivers up to 1400 MB/Sec. of sustained data throughput in RAID 5.

Extreme Reliability
The ExtremeStor-DI integrates the Windows 7™Pro 32 bit, Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, Winodws 8, Windows Server or Linux open platform operating systems. A choice of magnetic or solid-state operating system drives in single or redundant configurations provide a rugged and reliable architecture. Combine that with hot swappable enterprise class disk drives, power supplies, and blowers and the result is a well-equipped solution gdesigned to safeguard against downtime and critical data loss.

Extreme Scalability
The ExtremeStor-DI 10 drive workstation can hold up to 40TB’s of RAW storage and has the ability to scale as you grow for applications requiring even greater storage capacity, by implementing your choice of either ExtremeStor PCIe Expansion with integrated RAID, SCSI, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand or SAS host bus adapters for external add-on RAID arrays. ExtremeStor-DI workstations feature ten card slots for unprecedented scalability.

Extreme Sensibility
The ExtremeStor platform is one of the lowest cost-per-gigabyte solutions available in the industry today. Certfied for use with the industries leading software providers and applications, the ExtremeStor-DI provides the ultimate platform for applications such as Assimilate Scratch, Adobe CS6, DaVinci Resolve, Iridas Frame Cycler, Iridas Speed Grade, Marquis Technology and many other leading applications. The ExtremeStor-DI is also an ideal solution for real-time Red Digital Cinema workflows. By providing virtually unlimited scalability options, the ExtremeStor line of workstations and servers provide the ability to manage and process growing amounts of content more efficiently and provide realtime playback of the leading content formats.
