DDP Dynamic Drive Pool - Award winning ethernet SAN (IP) shared storage

The DDP (Dynamic Drive Pool) is a multi award winning shared storage available with SSD caching, load balancing and automatic data redistribution. Other advantages are linear bandwidth scaling, mirroring and single namespace.

People working with multi-media appreciate that desktop drives need to handle large amounts of data. Multi-media software such as those from Adobe, Avid, Apple, Grass Valley, Autodesk, Image Systems, Fairlight and other video, film and audio editing applications frequently require direct high-speed shared access to drives or volumes.

As well as this, data-hungry multimedia applications may run into capacity limitations and there are always the worries about backup.

FC-SAN (Fibre-channel Storage Area Network) solutions are usually expensive, complex, require two different networks, and require qualified engineers as well as licensing which adds additional costs.

NAS systems are simpler, easier to manage however they are much slower using approximately 50-70% of the available IP bandwidth.

Now with the DynamicDrivePool we present the best of both worlds - all from one box on one Ethernet network. An IP-SAN based solution allowing full project and file level based sharing, it uses almost 100% of the available Ethernet bandwidth.
DDP is an ideal, affordable and simple storage solution dedicated to film, video and audio users.

DDP Products

The DDP comes in 5 different product series
