Symply - 'Spark XT 112TB 8-Bay Desktop Thunderbolt 3 RAID'

Symply Spark XT 112TB 8-Bay Desktop Thunderbolt 3 RAID

hyper-fast thunderbolt enabled shuttle raidIntroducing the SymplySPARK XT Desktop RAID, a revolutionary storage solution that takes an already hyper-efficient Thunderbolt RAID and doubles its performance without compromising on cost or capacity. By harnessing the power of Seagate's MACH.2 hard drives, it bridges the gap between SSD speeds and HDD arrays. MACH.2 drives incorporate cutting-edge Multi-Actuator technology, revolutionizing read and write performance. Unlike traditional hard drives with a single actuator, MACH.2 drives employ a second actuator, effectively doubling the IOPS with every platter revolution, offering colossal performance enhancements and a reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

What truly sets SPARK XT apart is its jaw-dropping performance. Benchmarking tools from AJA, ATTO, and Blackmagic have reported mind-boggling read speeds of up to 2,952 MB/s and write speeds reaching 1,977 MB/s. In real-world usage, you can expect sustained read and write speeds of approximately 2,000 MB/s. This makes it more than capable of handling the most complex 8K+ workflows, VFX, simulations, and extensive file management, ensuring seamless data ingest and delivery.

Designed with studio environments and on-set use in mind, it operates library-quiet, generating less than 45dB of noise. This is achieved by utilizing a larger fan than most shuttle RAID systems, allowing it to spin at a slower, less disruptive pace. Setting the SymplySPARK XT apart is its user-serviceable fan and power assembly. No more sending units back for a simple component replacement. With the optional Self Assist Maintenance kit, you can have your SymplySPARK XT up and running again in just minutes, putting you back on track with minimal downtime. SymplySPARK XT redefines the benchmarks for speed, capacity, and user-friendliness in RAID systems, ensuring your workflow is not only efficient but exceptionally seamless.

SSD Speeds, HDD Prices

Multi Actuator TechnologyBy using Seagate MACH.2 hard drives we're able to deliver SSD speeds from an HDD array. MACH.2 drives use innovative Multi-Actuator technology to increase both read and write performance. Normal hard drives are, in construction, a series of platters with a read/write head (an actuator) flying over the top of them.

MACH.2 drives add a second actuator to enable increased read/write actions with each revolution of the platter. In other words: double the IOPS.
