Shared Storage: SSD Performance with HD Capacity

HyPerDDP12D: Ultra fast shared storage and SSD performance for Post Production & Broadcast

The HyPerDDP12D is a modular and scalable high performance Ethernet SAN shared storage system that combines the best of both worlds: SSD cache performance with HD capacity for recording and editing audio, video & film.

It functions with Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, DaVinci Resolve, FCPX and all other applications and MAM systems.

The HyPerDDP12D shared storage server comes in a 2U chassis with dual 10GbE/RJ45 ports and 2 extra PCIe slots for cards. In the standard configuration, the HyPerDDP12D is equipped with a 4TB SSD cache, 32TB HD packs, and a total capacity of 36 TB. The SSD and HD packs are RAID5 protected. The 4 spare slots of the HyPerDDP12D can be equipped with an additional SSD or HD pack.

Watch this video with a short explanation of the HyperDDP12D and SSD caching

The stream count values in the table are minimum values for the DDP. The stream count of any format you use can be obtained by dividing 1000MB/bandwidth of your format.

Having an SSD cache and HD Data Locations has advantages:

  • 1. Files transparently can be moved/copied within the HyperDDP12D between cache and spindles without changes to the directory tree.
  • 2. Audio, DPX and low bandwidth video formats which give bad performance (seek time issues) with spindles, can be kept or consolidated on SSDs.
    That way they do not influence the spindle performance of regular video formats.
  • 3. If needed you can split copying / rendering from streaming with streaming materials on SSDs to prevent drop frames.
  • 4. Because bandwidth of SSDs and spindles add up the DDP has a bandwidth of 1 GB/s plus the spindle bandwidth.
  • 5. Files ingested to SSD are duplicated to spindles. The newest files are then on SSD and also on spindles.
  • 6. Folder volume files can be pinned to cache.
  • 7. Folder volume files can be copied on demand to cache.
  • Note: bandwidth during sustained writing or combining R/W may be lower.
