FLUX Store - Post-Production Data Server
Fit for Purpose
FLUX Store is networked post-production storage that utilises the high-bandwidth internal disk system and cloud network infrastructure developed for Baselight.
It can be deployed in a facility as easily as general storage, whilst providing a solution that is purpose designed and industry proven for streaming high-resolution media.
You can connect any client to the FLUX Store via Ethernet - connection speeds from 1 to 100Gbps are available, with a range of different interfaces, according to the hardware options chosen.
Scalable and Affordable
Each FLUX Store provides either 0.25PB, 0.75PB or 1.5PB of streaming protected storage using a constant-rate hardware RAID 60 — developed by FilmLight — across 24, 72 or 144 drives respectively. FLUX Store has a filesystem designed specifically for handling image streams with minimal fragmentation and seeking, which allows the use of high-capacity, lower RPM drives resulting in a low cost per TB.
Each store is connected to the Baselight cloud network by dual 10GbE, or 40/50/100GbE links capable of multiple streams of uncompressed playback to remote Baselight systems. Additional FLUX Store systems can be added to the cloud simply, as projects demand.
The store also appears as a high performance NAS to the rest of the facility using NFS or SAMBA over Ethernet.
