If you need a scale out performance NAS / SAN without the cost of proprietary hardware then you need look no further than PixitMedia and its PixStor solution. Based on the IBM GPFS or General Parallel File System PixStor it can provide you with access to multiple pools of storage under a single namespace.

The bandwidth is calculated so that you don’t lose speed as your disks fragment and this is a guaranteed for the life of your system. When the time comes to scale the system you can rest assured this isn’t going to cost a fortune as the licence model is per node not per TB.
PixStor is flexible, offering 1Gb 10Gb 40Gb and 56Gb Infiniband connectivity utilising Mellanox switches meaning HD 2k and 4k workflows are all achievable.
