Developed for journalists in the field, as a portable shared storage unit to work with laptops.

Mini SPACE is a high performance central storage system optimised for digital content creation and designed to work with any mix of Mac, Windows or Linux clients.

Mini SPACE is safe, fast and cost effective making it the perfect solution to the ever increasing need for fast and safe data storage. By using standard Ethernet connectivity in many cases Mini SPACE is easy to install without the need for new cabling or client adapter cards.

Designed to be portable, the 8 drive Mini SPACE is much smaller and lighter than standard SPACE units but still has the benefit of RAID6 protected storage.

Key features

  • Supports 20 streams of DV, HDV or DVCPro25
  • Supports 6 streams of uncompressed SD, DNxHD 220/220x, ProRes 422(HQ) or DVCPro HD
  • 8 Hot Swap drive compact portable model
  • RAID 6 operation for ultimate data protection

By default Mini SPACE is fitted with four 1G Ethernet (GbE) ports to which client workstations can be directly connected. However, for best performance with GbE clients we recommend that these GbE ports be channel bonded to a GbE switch, and client workstations connected to the switch. When used with a switch in this fashion these four GbE ports allow the maximum performance available from Mini SPACE to be extracted.

Mini SPACE has an additional expansion slot that allows a second network card to be added, this slot can be used to double the number of GbE clients that can be directly connected to Mini SPACE without a switch. Alternatively, it can be used to add two 10GbE ports that can be used to connect either directly or indirectly via a 10GbE switch for 10GbE client workstations that require greater performance than that offered by a GbE connection.

The standard Mini SPACE can be powered from AC or the optional external 12V DC PSU. Alternatively Mini SPACE may be ordered with a power supply that only accepts 12V DC. This alternative model offers a more compact solution for 12V DC operation but cannot be powered from AC. Mini SPACE also has optional internal removable dual redundant AC power supplies.
