With no drivers to install, no licenses to buy, GB Labs has made owning and using shared storage equipment a whole new experience. Mixed OS (Mac, PC, Linux) workgroups can easily work collaboratively for greater efficiency and creativity, while safe in the knowledge that critical assets are suitably protected.
All FastNAS platforms benefit from best of breed technology exclusively developed in-house using 16 years of shared storage experience. Unlike other NAS products FastNAS is purpose built to sustain heavy workloads and provide stable and reliable performance.
The powerful FastNAS F-16 Nitro stands head and shoulders above the competition, delivering performance beyond its 16 disk configuration, thanks to the revolutionary Nitro hybrid boost technology and GB Labs unique Velocity RAID Engine. The combined performance of the FastNAS F-16 Nitro is up to 3000MB/sec and the stream performance is way beyond anything in its class.
Our Velocity RAID Engine (VRE) is optimised for AV usage and low latency response and is at the heart of the FastNAS experience. This technology is unique to GB Labs and offers superb performance, using minimal system resources and offering lightning performance.
Further performance comes with our Nitro boost technology. Nitro is our intelligent hybrid disk technology, developed by the team that brought you the award winning HyperSpace Solid State Accelerator. This is not just cache and this is not a general purpose hybrid. Nitro is specifically designed for real world usage and brings dramatic enhancement to collaborative media workflows, offering close to a pure SSD experience for creative users.
All GB Labs products are tested rigorously to ensure that they exceed the needs of the most demanding workgroups. The procedures include extended data read/write routines using multiple file types and sizes. This guarantees the end user the fastest possible performance in real world environments.
Nobody likes downtime, especially when it involves copying large amounts of data on and off your storage just to make it larger in capacity. FastNAS F-16 Nitro and the F-16 offer dynamic storage expansion which when combined with a FastNAS EX unit allows you to grow your storage instantly with your data still in place.
