Product Details

Unlimited collaboration - without inconvenient work-arounds

ELEMENTS GATEWAY transforms every existing Xsan or StorNext® SAN and any NAS environment into a ultimate collaboration network. By making StorNext FS accessible not only for virtually all non-linear editing and VFX applications, but even for Avid – natively and including true Bin-locking and Project-Sharing support – heterogeneous workflows become highly collaborative, across the entire facility and all platforms.

High-performance fileserver

ELEMENTS GATEWAY supports SMB, AFP and NFS, while two or more GATEWAY‘s provide a scalable high-availability server cluster. The integrated load balancing option prevents bottlenecks by assigning connections to multiple GATEWAY’s.
