LucidNAS is Ideal for Shared-Storage Video Applications

 

Largo, FL – April 2, 2014 – Lucid Technology, Inc., a leading provider of NAS/SAN unified storage solutions, announced the appointment of StorageRep LLC as a worldwide manufacturing  representative for the video market. StorageRep will actively promote all LucidNAS products to resellers and integrators serving the corporate video, film, television, and post-production industries.

 

“We have identified the video market as a key growth opportunity for our products,” says Vadim Carter, Lucid Technology’s President. “Video professionals are viewing NAS-based storage networks as an increasingly popular solution as it is easy to deploy and cost effective. We are excited to be working with StorageRep and are confident they have the expertise, relationships, and experience to help us succeed in this market.”

 

Lucid’s  flagship product, the LucidNAS Unified Storage Appliance, allows customers to easily make the transition to a lower cost NAS/SAN shared storage environment using any commodity  64-bit Intel or AMD server. LucidNAS provides video workgroups with fast, highly-scalable, ultra-reliable, and cost effective storage.  The Lucid product also removes the complexity of the filesystem and volume management with automated policies that dramatically reduce storage administration.

 

Lucid’s product perfectly complements our other product offerings in the video market. With a definite advantage in speed, and scalability – key requirements in 2K and 4K video – the Lucid partnership will enhance our customers’ high performance digital video solutions for film, TV and post production,” says Jerry Palace Co-founder, StorageRep LLC.

 

The video market represents data-intensive applications including computer graphics, streaming, editing, and content creation. The LucidNAS is well-suited for Adobe Creative Suite, Avid Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro 7, Apple Final Cut Pro X, and others. Multiple editors can access a hybrid storage pool that combines DRAM, SSDs, and spinning HDDs in order to speed up workflow completion time and overall project management.

 

LucidNAS Unified Storage Appliance provides customers with significant cost reductions and increased productivity by offering affordable, high performance access to networked storage. By utilizing existing Ethernet infrastructure, NAS-based solutions simplify storage deployment, management, and support for editors and IT personnel. Furthermore, many organizations can leverage their existing networks instead of having to purchase new network equipment.
