Media production server
The sQ Server is a compact 3RU video storage server containing all the components required for acquiring, storing and managing content in a shared production workflow.

The sQ Sever is supplied in two variants, one with internal storage and the other which supports one or up to four external storage units. They are known as sQ 1200 and sQ 1800 respectively.

The sQ 1200 and sQ 1800 are otherwise functionally identical, supporting the full range of workflows. The sQ 1200 contains a single RAID set of 7 data and I parity disks. The sQ 1800 uses external SAS eBOD and contains 24 disks split across three RAID sets in a RAID 30 arrangement. RAID 30 is specifically designed for high-bandwidth file transfers and high availability, as demanded by video production systems. The servers and RAID units have dual power supplies and the disks are hot-swappable.
