SPACE CORE OS hits 3.1

SPACE CORE OS hits 3.1

The latest update to the SPACE operating system, CORE.3.1 is now available

The new version introduces:

• Bandwidth control

A feature guaranteeing quality of service for attached clients. Administrators can now assign bandwidth controls and data rates at the read and write level (MB/s) and for each client at an individual IP address or range of addresses. Critical, high impact jobs can be now prioritised over routine back-ups and lower data rate processes, such as audio editing.

• Supercharged NAS delivery engine

BlueShift technology has been developed by GB Labs to deliver incredible networking speeds for all sharing protocols. All acceleration is done server side with no client software required. This allows extreme performance without the support headache of installing and configuring your workstations. The result of this new and enhanced version is even faster networking performance, with AFP, NFS and SMB/CIFS via 1Gb, 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet connections.

• Simultaneous read / write performance gains

IDA (In-flight Data Acceleration) and Chaos Cache are exclusive GB Labs' technologies which combine dynamically to great effect. Dramatic performance gains are achieved, for example, when users continue to work using SPACE while media is ingested or copied to the central storage. IDA automatically controls all layers from disk platter to network and works intelligently with Chaos Cache, our new smart cache technology. We are very proud of the algorithms we use to achieve this within SPACE and are confident you will feel a marked difference.

Please note - IDA is now standard on all MiniSPACE, MidiSPACE, SPACE and SPACE SSD models.

• Improved support - CLI (Command Line Interface)

For advanced level usage and powerful technical support, all SPACE units running CORE.3.1 can now be controlled and interrogated at this level without the necessity to use the web GUI. The CLI is available from the VGA port at the back of the unit and through SSH* over an internal network or accessed remotely.

* Secure Shell (SSH) is a network protocol for data communication, remote command-line login, remote command execution, and other services between two networked devices.
