The NHL has purchased GB Labs’ MiniSPACE SSD 1RU storage system, the storage solutions company has announced.
The American hockey league made the move to GB Labs after its previous storage system proved unreliable, suffering from poor performance and inadequate portability.
The MiniSPACE SSD 1RU allowed the NHL to take advantage of its lightweight, high portability, fast SSD and the reliability of GB Labs’ acclaimed CORE.4 OS.
GB Labs’ MiniSPACE SSD 1RU storage system directly supports eight editors, a data wrangler connected by a high-performance 10GbE in order to receive 1000MB/s I/O, and a 24-port switch for instances when extra editors are required.
GB Labs North American channel account executive John Alaimo said: “A key component of what appealed to the NHL about SPACE SSD was its ability to provide simultaneous live ingest and direct connectivity for multiple editors, which opens up numerous opportunities for the multi-platform delivery of stylised content. Also, on top of the speed of the SPACE SSD range, it provides the performance, portability and reliability they had previously lacked.”
