In conjunction with NAB 2017, Archion Technologies, a leader in intelligent, ultra high performance shared storage solutions for media workflows, will be announcing several additions to its products and services offerings, as well as significant enhancements to its Authorized Channel Partner Program. During NAB, Archion will be based at Booth Number SL14617. The company will also be raffling a full turnkey EditStor Velo . Please visit www.archion.com for a free NAB exhibition pass.
Archion is renowned within the creative storage industry for offering the most intelligent, shared storage solutions - solutions that truly support collaborative 4K, 8K and 360 video workflows: including DPX, standards based compatibility, quick and easy expansion up to 2.4 Petabytes, speeds of 8000 MB/sec and IOPS in excess of 600,000, and management user interfaces for multiple audiences.
In addition to Archion’s nearly two decades of delivering high performance shared storage solutions for content creation professionals, Archion’s Patented IP, which provides virtualized dynamic storage that accelerates the throughput and speed of the backplanes, protocols, Ethernet connections, and the overall chassis performance, is what truly differentiates Archion from the competition.
The combination of Archion’s IP, experience, broad capabilities and high scalability give creative teams the confidence to invest in Archion’s single, centralized solution - one designed to grow with them as the workflow demands within their infrastructures also grow.
Archion’s NAB 2017 presence follows the company’s successful 2016 show in which SSD solutions were introduced to improve the IOPS performance needed for many media workflows, such as visual effects. This year, the company will be introducing all new flash products that will deliver bandwidth and IOPS speeds far in excess of existing Archion EditStor solutions and other flash solutions within a comparable price range.
During NAB 2017, Archion will be using workflow applications such as Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, Blackmagic Resolve and more, to demonstrate how capable Archion's EditStor models are in handling very demanding workflows, such as 4K DPX.
Additionally, Archion will be showcasing its new networked User Interface (UI) for EditStor, which was based on feedback from Archion’s clients and their requirements for collaboration and ease within their workflows. The whole UI has shared group control custom features like changing volume names and description of shares that are updated to all users.
While existing HDD based solutions such as EditStor Omni and EditStor Velo deliver industry leading speeds and overall price and performance, Archion’s all flash solutions will deliver the performance required to handle the next generation of 4K, 8K and 360-degree workflows.
Regarding his company’s prominent position within the creative storage solutions marketplace, Reuben Lima, Archion’s CEO, said, “We are continuing our pursuit to bring our clients the best price performance in the industry while protecting their original investment with Archion. This year we will be announcing greater performance with flash technology. The best part is our existing customers can take advantage of this performance by simply upgrading their drives and retaining their original Archion hardware. This is a testament to the fact that we work to bring our customers the latest in technology without requiring a forklift upgrade or additional appliance hardware. Come visit us at NAB and see the performance that the competition does not want you to see. We will be demonstrating our technology and providing attendees hands-on demos with our system to work freely instead of conforming to a structured demo.”
Adds James Tucci, Archion’s CTO, “We have continued to advance our EditStor platform so that content creation professionals can easily move from one workflow or editing application to another without changes - other than launching the next editing software. Media is always available in one centralized EditStor storage server, and there is no special formatting or procedure required for high speed DPX.”
Archion has been dedicated to the channel, inclusive of Solution Providers, System Integrators, and more, and at NAB 2017 will be announcing multiple enhancements to its channel program by which to further enable the company’s success. Says Dan Stern, Archion’s VP, Business Development, “NAB is a terrific place for potential resellers to meet members of our team and learn about the multiple solutions we have to offer their prospects and customers. It’s also a great opportunity to sit down and discuss how Archion’s program is geared toward addressing reseller challenges, keeping requirements low, improving margins, and developing qualified referrals.” Please see: https://www.archion.com/partners/partnering-overview/

These additions will come at no extra charge to Archion customers, and are just part of the company’s consistent goal of exceeding customer expectations.
