Small Tree "Infused" ROBEN-3TS by Magma Turns Laptops into Mini-Server
System Optimizes Bandwidth for Video-Editing Teams
(March 12, 2014)
Post-production facilities seeking maximum bandwidth for video-editing projects should consider installing Magma's ROBEN-3TS, available through Small Tree. Featuring three full-length, full-height PCIe slots with a robust, high speed backplane, as well as modifications made by Small Tree to support the leading shared storage company's high bandwidth, enterprise 10Gb Ethernet cards and Thunderbolt(tm) 2 technology, ROBEN-3TS is available with either 1 TB SATA drives or 1 TB SSD drives.
"By installing the customer's networking product of choice and the Magma ROBEN-3TS sold by Small Tree, we can help turn laptops into a mini-server for use in the field or in the studio," said Steve Modica, Small Tree's Chief Technology Officer. "This enables small facilities to get work done quickly with only a handful of users."
Designed for integrated removable storage expansion, ROBEN-3TS' rack-mountable aluminum chassis includes eight 2.5-inch SATA/SAS HDD or SSD hard drive bays, a 540-watt power supply, auxiliary power, and two 40mm 6.37 CFM Bay Fans. With Thunderbolt(tm) 2 capable devices, added power can be channeled at 20Gbps bandwidth, an extremely attractive benefit for studios seeking affordable solutions to optimize their workflow. The Small Tree infused ROBEN-3TS can transform a video editor's computer into a powerful workstation. Connect two or more ROBEN-3TS systems in a series and create the performance equivalent of a server.
