If your content is outgrowing your archive, if you're concerned about securely replicating your primary data, Echo 36 is the solution. It's massive, safe, fast and flexible.

Suitable for broadcasters, large post houses and dedicated media archives that have 24/7 data requirements.

Key Features

How Echo 36 can help you

Massive tier 2 storage is becoming a vital resource for media organizations that see their primary archive as the heart of their facility. The nearline is treated as the exchange hub where files are imported, backed up, shared, transferred to specialist editing, grading and playout servers, and transcoded for distribution.

Benefiting from economies of scale, Echo 36 is capable of storing vast amounts of data and is massively scalable. Suitable for broadcasters, large post houses and dedicated media archives that have 24/7 data requirements.

Capacity Expansion

Echo products offer large unit sizes throughout the range, none more so than with the Echo 36 platform with single units offering up to 256TB and total storage expansion available up to 6.1 PB (Petabytes).

Echo EX 36 SAS expansion units can be connected to the Echo 36 platform to grow the storage dramatically. Unit sizes ranging from 32 TB to 256TB can be added quickly and without interruption.

Different capacity units can be mixed and a single volume can grow as your needs require. Data stays in place while dramatic re-sizing can be achieved instantly, eliminating costly down time.

Cloak DR

Unique GB Labs technology is available on the Echo 36 platform, an automatic failover technology for high availability. The unit can be linked to another Echo 36 on the network (using 10GbE or 40GbE) and present a single virtualized IP address, whilst channeling new data to both units simultaneously and maintaining its ultrafast read performance. For highly resilient deployments switches and clients can also be channel bonded for no single point of failure.

Echo 36 can therefore suffer complete failure or even removal without serious issue as the secondary system will go live within 10 seconds and any incoming new data will be held and then safely written after failover has occurred.
