Powerful, intelligent and easily scalable media storage for demanding workflows 

SPACE is the true successor to SAN, designed to be used directly across the network with an abundance of sustained reliable performance and comprehensive workflow tools.

Key Features


Unique technology developed by GB Labs to deliver consistent high performance through Ethernet. Using standard sharing protocols and no client side software, NAS convenience meets SAN performance.

Scalable Performance

The performance of SPACE can be scaled using additional SPACE EX expansion units and beyond this our unique HyperSpace accelerator can take you to 4K and beyond.

Capacity Expansion

Technicians can go from Terabytes to Petabytes in seconds. Dynamic storage expansion is quick, cost-effective and non-disruptive.

Core 3

Feature rich operating system full of workflow tools designed for real-world media environments. These work seamlessly in the background allowing you to do what you do best – create.

Platform Agnostic

GB Labs storage is developed for total cross platform compatibility, allowing PC, Mac and Linux platforms to collaborate and share data freely and efficiently.

HyperSpace Compatible

HyperSpace’s SSDs and SPACE’s HDDs offer highly cost-effective and extreme performance. Investing in HyperSpace means you can take on projects you weren’t able to before.

How SPACE can help you

Content creation teams can work on files and projects together for complete creative freedom. With SPACE storage, Mac, Linux and Windows clients have simultaneous access to projects while administrators can specify users’ access rights, storage quotas and permitted bandwidth.

SPACE was designed to be easy to install, maintain and upgrade. IP connectivity means that dial-in support can address any issues remotely – anywhere in the world. Data transfers are swift using 1Gb, 10Gb or 40Gb connections, especially when moving data between tiers of GB Labs’ units where our system intelligence and workflow efficiency comes to the fore.


SPACE supports cost effective capacity expansion by connecting SPACE EX (16 disks) to the unit. Storage size can be increased dynamically, meaning that data can stay in place as the capacity changes.

RAID controllers will be added after a total of 6 units, this allows SPACE to utilize 17S EX chassis combined with large storage sizes up to 160TB per unit. This gives you a total expansion of 2.8PB from a single system.


Difference - The two largest capacity SPACE units have been given additional horsepower and even faster connectivity to create SPACE+.
The powerful SPACE CPUs have been further enhanced to get even more performance out of the hardware, translating to even greater performance being delivered to the network especially when using enhanced SPACE setups with 'SPACE EX' or 'HyperSpace'.

SPACE+ is available in 128TB and 160TB capacities and utilizes 12Gb SAS drives for class leading performance. The dual 10/40GbE (QSFP+) ports of SPACE are actually upgraded to dual 10/40/100GbE (QSFP+) ports in SPACE+ units and include the adapters to instantly change these ports to 10GbE (SFP+) if required.
