SymplyWORKSPACE technology demonstrates company’s innovative
Thunderbolt™3 shared storage platform capable of 4K editing and 8
simultaneous Thunderbolt™3 clients
CAMBRIDGE, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#NABShowNY–Symply, a Global Distribution brand, will be demonstrating
SymplyWORKSPACE, the first Thunderbolt™3-based SAN technology using
StorNext®6, at NAB New York (booth N237).
With the high adoption rates of Thunderbolt-equipped workstations and
laptops being used in media production, being able to connect high-speed
shared storage has not been easy and requires expensive and bulky
adapters. SymplyWORKSPACE allows laptops and workstations equipped with
Thunderbolt™3 to ingest, edit, finish, and deliver without the need to
move content locally, even at 4K resolutions with a direct Thunderbolt™3
cable connection, and with no adapter needed.
Based on industry leading Quantum StorNext®6 sharing software, users can
reliably connect up to 8 laptops and workstations to the system using a
standard Thunderbolt with no additional hardware or adapters, and share
video files, graphics and other data files instantly.

length from storage to workstation. With the introduction of Corning®
optical cable technology, users can now be tens of metres away from the
While the company has not announced pricing or availability, the systems
are expected to start under USD$10,000 for 48TB and up to four users,
making the solution perfect for smaller post-production houses, in-house
creative, houses of worship, sports teams, ad agencies, and any creative
user facility with more than one user looking for high-speed sharing at
an affordable price.
