The MediaPower Storage MX or MPS-MX is a powerful NAS/SAN media storage array that achieves the performance and reliability of large enterprise storage and the flexibility and scalability of small to medium-sized systems. It is a high-density storage providing operators and production studios the capacity to store thousands of hours’ worth of content in an economical footprint. It features load balancing and system failover capabilities, offering operators new levels of performance, reliability, and scalability, without limiting deployment options.
The MPS-MX is highly scalable with entry-level capacities starting at 16TB or 24TB. Base controllers can be expanded with additional 3U or 4U storage expansion shelves. Dynamic online expansion also happens seamlessly.
• MX16 - from 16TB (16-drive 3U base controller) to 192TB
• MX24 - from 24TB (24-drive 4U base controller) to 288TB
The MPS-MX features simultaneous NAS and SAN access. Files on the MPS-MX can be accessed by clients using iSCSI, CIFS, NFS and FTP without needing to reconfigure the system or set up separate gateways. Supporting both NAS and SAN in a single file system allows companies to eliminate their need for local storage islands for equipment which requires different types of connections. The MPS-MX can scale out in high capacities, scaling up to petabytes of storage within a single global namespace and allowing all media assets to be managed.
The MPS-MX is characterized by its unique ability to support both real-time and play-to-air transmissions, as well as high-performance production and media factory applications. For this reason MPS-MX provides operators with the ability to maximize the value of their storage investment, simplifying their workflow at the same time.
• Built-in Arkki asset management
• Real-time Broadcast Play-to-Air
• Production Editing
• Media factory applications
Optimized for Media Files
The MPS-MX employs media-centric file layout allowing space efficiency for small files and high- streaming performance for large media files. The MPS-MX is well suited for multi-user production environments with client-based bandwidth control, enterprise integration with LDAP and Active Directory for IT- friendly multi-user access administration, and file notification for efficient media inventory management.
Enterprise Availability and Reliability
MPS-MX is reliable due to its field-replaceable parts, hot-swappable drives and redundant power supplies. It ensures there will be no single point of failure by providing RAID-6 protection and high availability Active-Active controllers.
• Active-Active Controllers
• 4 x 10Gb/s Ethernet with Bonding
• Virtual IP with failover support
• RAID 6-protected arrays
• Block-level mirroring
