    Why Facilis and Key Code Media

    Facilis BuildingTerrablock offers our client’s unmatched performance and flexibility at a very competitive price. Facilis’ Terrablock delivers uncompressed HD performance better than any product in the market. With today’s mixed system workflows using Apple, Assimilate, Digital Vision, DS, Symphony, Avid MediaComposer, or Protools, the Terrablock is our industries first choice. Facilis requires no per seat license charges for the basic client CPU connection, this allows editorial, audio and graphics departments to be connected seamlessly over a hybrid 8Gb fibre and or, 10GigE infrastructure, while keeping long term growth costs at a minimum. Shared HD 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 as well as 2k or even 4k DPX playback can be achieved across multiple work stations.

    Francis Albert, President of Facilis claims his objective is to deliver a simple, high performance shared file system at the greatest price performance value in the industry. In June 2009, Facilis introduced a shared file system, now TerraBlock shared storage breaks down the boundaries between high performance volume-level sharing and total collaborative multi-user write access, all without IT infrastructure or per-seat fees.

    Key Features

     

    NewWorkflowDEC

    BENEFIT FROM VIRTUAL VOLUME CONSISTENCY & CARE FREE OPERATION

    Disk set virtualization delivers dynamic project-based volume creation, expansion and reduction. Virtual Volumes are tolerant to fragmentation and impervious to speed degradation. Maintain 100% performance even when TerraBlock is 100% full.

    SECURE YOUR FILES WITH DYNARAID DATA PROTECTION

    Customize data protection on a per-Virtual Volume basis, and change or remove that protection without loss of primary data. RAID5 protection takes only 9% overhead and available cross-server mirroring doubles your data security.

    NEVER PAY A PER-SEAT LICENSE OR 3rd PARTY FEE

    TerraBlock is the first and only shared file system available over fibre channel and Ethernet without per-seat licensing. Connect up to 100 Ethernet and Fibre Channel clients at no additional cost and no 3rd party fees.

    ACCESS ULTRA-HIGH PERFORMANCE FOR THE MOST INTENSE 4K JOBS

    TerraBlock was the first shared storage system to deliver shared uncompressed HD, and Facilis continues that tradition by enabling the most demanding 2K and 4K workflows through Single-user Write and up to 2160p UHD support on Multi-user Write on a single 5u chassis.

    SELECT THE RIGHT DATA SHARING METHOD FOR YOUR WORKFLOW

    Dynamically designate volumes to be shared through the Facilis Shared File System for collaborative multi-platform access over Fibre Channel and Ethernet, or volume-locked sharing for ultra-high performance up to 1.5GB/sec over 16Gb Fibre Channel.

    ServerManagerMANAGE USERS THROUGH ACTIVE DIRECTORY & LDAP

    Easily synchronize TerraBlock users with Active Directory groups within specific organizational units. Add multiple volume permissions to entire groups in a single step, and manage all user account creation and deletion from a single location.

    CONNECT WITH8/16Gb FIBRE CHANNEL & 1/10Gb ETHERNET

    Access image and audio data through various connectivity methods to fit your particular requirements and budget. Client workstations can connect directly to the TerraBlock or through cost-effective network and fabric switches.

    RESIZE YOUR PROJECT-BASED VOLUMES FOR EFFICIENT USE OF SPACE

    With TerraBlock, volumes can be made of any size, and the size can be increased or reduced on the fly, as the project requires. Project-based volumes offer low-level media management, ease of permissions allocation and security, and a familiar workflow.
