MediaPower combines enterprise performance and reliability with cost-effective flexibility & scalability in Storage MX, launches US regional office
Genoa, Italy (December 2, 2015) – European media technology solutions provider MediaPower is pleased to announce the release of its own enterprise-level cost-effective media storage system Storage MX, and the opening of a new regional office in the US.
The MediaPower Storage MX is a powerful NAS/SAN media storage array that achieves the performance and reliability of large enterprise storage and the flexibility and scalability of small to medium-sized systems. It is a high-density storage providing operators and production studios the capacity to store thousands of hours’ worth of content in an economical footprint. It features load balancing and system failover capabilities, offering broadcast operators and media companies new levels of performance, reliability, and scalability, without limiting deployment options.
The MediaPower Storage MX is initially available in two base active-active dual controller models – MX16 (16-drive 3U) and MX24 (24-drive 4U). Both models can be expanded using expansion shelves that also support an additional 16 or 24-drives per expansion shelf.
Along with the launch of MediaPower Storage MX, MediaPower is also pleased to announce its new regional office in the US serving the Americas region, marking its commitment in servicing the market beyond its home shores. Carrying the same homegrown product offerings (such as Storage MX, Arkki and NewsTouch), the MediaPower US office is located in Southern New Hampshire and headed by Ralph Beck, who has held executive positions with XOR Media and SeaChange .
"With the release of our own media storage system and the creation of our US-based regional office under Ralph Beck’s leadership, MediaPower is well positioned to grow our impact into the Americas region," says CEO Marcello Dellepiane.
