Product Information:

Versatile and Light weight

Weighing less than 5kg (11 pounds), this B08S2-PS is small and compact, easily  fits in any  transportable cart systems for on-set, on – location, or near-set makes this the best  solution for use by DIT for ingest, copy, and post production work.

Amazing Performance

Unlike other small form factor storage, the B08S2-PS takes full advantage of using PCI Express protocol throughout the storage path. The 20Gb bandwidth is 20Gb throughout. There is no PCIe to FC conversion eliminating any protocol conversion delays. That is why it can reach 1400/1300 MB/s for read/write, respectively.

The new B08S2-PS SSD bundle from ExaSAN 

A small, compact in size, RAID storage system, versatile enough for transportability, easily fits on the desktop or in any DIT cart.  The B08S2-PS requires a footprint of less than 1 square foot.  Bundled with Intel SSD drives, it delivers amazing performance.

Focus on Content Creation, Not on Storage Speed Limitations

The B08S2-PS was developed with the changing workflow in mind where much editing work is done closer and closer to where powerful cameras capture content. On-set and on-location are words heard often as producers and directors realize cost and time savings, for example, from creating dailies on-location.

Powerful and demanding applications require high performance storage, such as the B08S2-PS, to enable completion of dailies and make final decisions before shooting starts the next day. The B08S2-PS works well with demanding editing applications from companies such as Autodesk, Blackmagic, Assimilate, and IRDAS.

B08S2-PS Bundle for 4K DPX Workflow

2K DPX file requires 300MB/s speed, where 4K DPX file may require up to 1300MB/s performance from storage. The B08S2-PS with SSD can provide 1400MB/s read and 1300MB/s write to play multiple 2K  as well as 10 Bit 4K DPX.

Performance optimization

The B08S2-PS features include performance equalization mode (EQ). This reduces the fluctuation between data transfer speeds over time so that the likelihood of potential frame drops are minimized which is a great thing. Another feature called disk lag proof (DLP) computes the RAID algorithm of weakening/failing drives (that may require multiple retries) preventing the data transfer delays caused by the deteriorating drives enabling the actual data transfer to complete even before the weak drive has successfully completed retries.
