Higher bandwidth and better performance.
It’s time to Embrace the power of High-Speed Connectivity!
As technology evolves, network speed is getting faster. Applications are becoming more sophisticated and require intensive data processing power. A company needs an effective and high-speed IT infrastructure so mission-critical information can be handled without delay. Therefore the storage requires faster front-end network connectivity to process a large amount of data.
Your business data are increasing with an unprecedented rate of growth, the time you spend on backing up increases as well. Disaster could happen during the backup time. You need higher bandwidth to finish a backup within a shorter period of time. so your data will not be in risk.
4K 8K Surveillance
In a video surveillance system, two factors determine the storage you need: the quality of the image received, and the number of camera and recording devices. With 4K/8K video and a large number of surveillance devices, there are a great amount of data flow into storage. Higher speed network provides enough bandwidth to make sure all images are recorded.
Media Editing in M&E Industry
Near-line image editing or offline image editing require high-performance network environments and storage solutions. You need super-fast network bandwidth to meet 4k, 8k and higher resolution production requirement.
The virtual architecture generates a large amount of IO that makes the storage indigestible and dragging down the host server. With more virtual desktops, storage requires higher network throughput to deliver the best user experience for all VDI users.
Reducing the Deployment Complexity
25GbE and 32G Fibre Channel cards support much higher bandwidth compared to 10GbE Ethernet and 16Gb Fibre channel card. A system requiring 80Gb throughput will need twice as many wires if only 10GbE/16Gb cards available. Using 25GbE and 32Gb Fibre channel cards, the network infrastructure is neat and easy to maintain. Moreover, the company is now able to provide higher bandwidth service with the presence of high-speed cards, no necessary to buy more storages just to fulfil the high bandwidth requirement.
Transmit Much More Data
Using 25GbE or 32G FC card to connect to the storage, users can transmit much more data in one physical line, and even more with port trunking!
- Allows to run more virtual machines
- Accommodate large scale surveillance
- Backup at lighting speed
- Multiple media editing and video on demand(VOD)
- Massive data flow in 5G network
