Leading European storage manufacturer, Fibrenetix, today announced a new addition to their E8 Storage Series with the latest 16Gbit Fibre Channel host connection. Developed for the demanding media & entertainment industry in Hollywood and worldwide, the new 16Gbit system from Fibrenetix offers market-leading performance for content creation.
Paul Weiser, CEO of Fibrenetix Americas, says, “Media & entertainment professionals continue to raise the performance bar. The need to produce and edit movies, and create content in high resolution 2K and 4K has truly challenged the storage industry to provide even faster solutions.” Weiser continues, “Fibrenetix is right at the forefront when it comes to meeting these performance and reliability needs. The technology in our new 16Gbit Fibre Channel system is based around our E-Series product range, which has a proven record as one of the most reliable, high performance storage systems on the market today.”
Fibrenetix E8 platform is unique in that the company provides an easy and cost-effective upgrade path; you can purchase to meet the production needs you have today, knowing that upgrading the system as your workload increases is as easy as replacing the controller.

Jes Nagel, CEO of Fibrenetix, comments, “Replacing the controller is a simple five minute NTR (no tools required) job, and our engineers have made sure the new controller is 100% backward compatible with our 8Gbit controllers, so there is no need to buy new hard drives, or another subsystem to support the next generation of technology. Simply upgrade the controller and away you go. This offers our customers real protection of their investment – a unique concept which only Fibrenetix is offering today.”
