Increasing network performance is essential to the creative process

Small Tree Communications (booth #2411), an industry leader in providing unique, state-of-the-art enterprise networking solutions for Mac OS X, will be demonstrating BlazeFS, a new remote file sharing system designed specifically for Macs, during the MacWorld Expo in San Francisco. BlazeFS is a high performance file system designed to work in concert with the high performance networking products Small Tree is noted for, such as 10Gb Ethernet and InfiniBand. BlazeFS provides remote file sharing that is completely transparent to client applications and works as if the user were accessing files on a local disk. Additionally, BlazeFS can drive data to the maximum speed of a Gigabit Ethernet link.

BlazeFS offers users the ability to store large data files, such as uncompressed HD video, on a file server rather than local to each client and allows clients to access these files at speeds similar to the local disk. BlazeFS will benefit all users sharing data, but will especially be useful in those industries where significantly large data files need to be transferred between users, including video editing, content creation, print media, and rendering farms.

To validate performance and stability, Small Tree tested and achieved exceptional results with BlazeFS using the demanding application Final Cut Pro HD, the professional video industry’s benchmark tool for precise editing.

“Increasing network performance is essential to the creative process,” stated Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree Communications. “There’s nothing more frustrating then having work sessions interrupted and inhibited by slow network performance — it’s like having a great engine in a car but not having it tuned properly to take advantage of all the horsepower. BlazeFS will maximize workflow, enabling the professional workforce to be more efficient and effective.”
