mLogic will be showing four new products at IBC 2018: mSpeed Pro, mRack Pro, mShare MDC and mTape SAS.
Booths that will be showing product at IBC include Archiware (7.D35), Atomos (11.D15 11.D25), Hedge (11.B04), StorageDNA (7.A32), Tiger Technology (7.B58), and Global Distribution (7.A55).
mSpeed Pro — The mLogic mSpeed Pro is a 10-drive RAID system with integrated LTO tape. Featuring the best of both worlds, this hybrid storage solution and hard drive provides high-speed access to media for coloring, editing and VFX, while also providing an extended, long term archive for content to LTO tape, which promises more than 30+ years of media preservation.
mSpeed Pro supports multiple RAID levels including RAID 6 for the ultimate in fault tolerance. It connects to any Linux, macOS, or Windows computer via a blazing fast 40Gb/second Thunderbolt 3 port.
The unit ships with the mLogic Linear Tape File System (LTFS) Utility, a simple drag-and-drop application that transfers media from the RAID to the LTO.
The mLogic mSpeed Pro will be available in 60, 80 & 100TB with an LT0-7 or LTO-8 tape drive. Pricing starts at $8,999.
mRack Pro — The mRack Pro is the industry’s first 2U rack-mountable archiving solution to feature full-height LTO-8 drives and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. Full-height (FH) LTO-8 drives offer numerous benefits over their half-height counterparts:
- FH drives have larger motors and move media faster
- FH drives work more optimally in LTFS (Linear Tape File System) environments
- FH drives provide increased mechanical reliability
- FH drives are a better choice for high-duty cycle workloads
- FH drives have a lower operating temperature
The mRack Pro is available with one or two LTO-8 FH drives. Pricing starts at $7,999.
mShare MDC — mLogic’s mShare is a metadata controller (MDC) with PCIe switch and embedded Storage Area Network (SAN) software, all integrated in a single compact rack-mount enclosure. Designed to work with mLogic’s mSAN Thunderbolt 3 RAID, the unit can be configured with Apple Xsan or Tiger Technology Tiger Store software. With mShare and mSAN, collaborative workgroups can be configured over Thunderbolt at a fraction of the cost of traditional SAN solutions. Pricing TBD.
mTape SAS — Designed for archiving media in the Linux and Windows environments, mTape SAS is a desktop LTO-7 or LTO-8 that ships bundled with a high-speed SAS PCIe adapter to install in host computers. The mTape SAS can also be bundled with Xendata Workstation 6 archiving software for Windows. Pricing starts at $3,399.
