Key Code Media Announces Availability of the New StorageDNA 720

November 17, 2008 1 comment


StorageDNA has released version 2 which includes the new StorageDNA 720 system allowing clients to create peer to peer media synchronization workflows over LANs and WANs.  This technology is both platform and file type agnostic. 

The StorageDNA system creates a data synchronization pipeline to move media and meta data to a target cpu or set of drives.  This is used to connect systems within a workflow or protect media to help business’ centrally manage their data. The SDNA 720 is a web platform that manages different synchronization agents.  The overall technology is based on a Linux server which allows data workflows which effectively connect and protect media workflows. Examples of workflows include synchronization to lower cost storage from SANS such as Avid Unity or Facilis’ Terrablock. 


The agents are SDNA-Sync which creates file movement up to 160mb/second, SDNA-SANsync which allows fibre to fibre SAN backup, SDNA-WANsync which allows for TCP/IP file transfer acceleration over a wide area network.  StorageDNA also includes encryption technology, file automation, and file delta differencing which allows the system to only transmit the changes rather than resending the entire file.  Key Code Media can provide a SAN analyzer tool allowing clients to scan their SAN to determine current projects versus non-active projects which could be archived.


Tridib Chakravarty, CEO of StorageDNA states, “Key Code Media has been an early proponent of our technology and a knowledgeable partner. They have been instrumental in seeding the market within deadline driven workflows such as South Park, Buddha Jones, Image Movers, and two large studios.  Clients have used DNAsync to both minimize SAN storage and speed up their production pipeline.   


According to Mike Cavanagh, President of Key Code Media, “The StorageDNA team has created the ultimate glue to help clients both manage and protect their diverse platforms.  They have created an intelligent synchronization engine across the production pipeline.  All of our clients who’ve invested in StorageDNA have become raving fans of the technology.  Most importantly, the StorageDNA team is the most customer focused organization I’ve ever encountered.  They make enabling infrastructure tools that have significant value for our client base.”
