Create cost-effective media content repositories and archives

Simplify the management of your media and entertainment data with a solution that prioritises efficient scale. Reduce the virtual and physical footprint of your data, along with the workload for your data storage engineers.

Select the media that’s best suited for your media content repository requirements

Deploy different performance tiers to effectively manage your performance and density requirements all within the same architecture.

Choose high performance, all-flash storage tiers to allow for multi concurrent operations such as private copy recording and restart catch-up/timeshifted services.

Demote long tail recordings to HDD pools, while deploying NVMe pools to accommodate multiple concurrent writes and reads.

Seamlessly expand storage from terabytes to exabytes for the ultimate in operational agility

With SoftIron HyperDrive it is possible to independently scale all components to grow as your needs require. This inherent scalability aligns well with a horizontal approach, so you can stage your expansion by adding HyperDrive nodes as demand dictates.

Efficient use of metadata reduces input/output operations per second (IOPS), minimising bottlenecks. Choose to write large or small objects, where large objects group all your adaptive bit-rate renditions into one write, then only extract what is needed on read.

Why SoftIron

Task-specific engineering that delivers power efficient performance

HyperDrive has been designed from the ground up for full interoperability with Ceph. This, combined with a form factor designed to maximise cooling efficiency, means that single racks can be densely provisioned while remaining within power limits. Filling racks in this manner, and distributing data evenly with powerful replication methods, can offer dramatic cost savings compared to traditional enterprise solutions.

Fully auditable secure provenance

Where other manufacturers opt to cut costs by outsourcing manufacture to third parties (and therefore passing on the supply chain risks to their customers) SoftIron takes the opposite approach.

SoftIron has in-house, full control over the design and manufacture of our products. Because of this, we can readily enable appliance integrity audits and system verification at a granular level by third parties.

Simplify infrastructure management tasks at any scale

Skilled network and data engineers are difficult to find, and not all organisations can afford to hire one even when they’re available.

HyperDrive addresses critical skills shortages around data infrastructure management, by simplifying common data centre administration and maintenance tasks. By using SoftIron’s products, customers can conduct many previously complex data management tasks via the dashboard provided by the HyperDrive Storage Manager, and our patented “Ceph button”.
