Xcellis stores metadata on fast, redundant SSD storage (Xcellis MD Array) in configurations shared with online storage or as standalone metadata storage.
Flexible Client Connectivity
Xcellis provides flexible client connectivity with any combination of Fibre Channel and IP clients and in mixed SAN and NAS topologies to meet any workflow requirement, whether you are looking for the fastest multi-stream 4K performance or simple NAS connected transcoders or review stations.
Xcellis also allows StorNext DLC clients for Mac, Windows, and Linux users providing Fibre Channel – like performance over lower cost Ethernet IP for many client applications.
