As ISE got underway, UK manufacturer GB Labs was spreading the news that Polar Graphics had been appointed as the European distributor of its SPACE SAN (storage area network) solution.
The result of many years' development informed by customer requests, SPACE is a high performance central storage device using 1Gbit or 10Gbit Ethernet connectivity. Designed to work with any combination of Mac, Windows or Linux clients, SPACE incorporates RAID6 technology to protect users against data loss due to drive failures.
Constructed to support from one to hundreds of users, SPACE has relevance to applications in education, broadcast and post-production.
Polar Graphics' MD, Peter Rowsell, commented: "We are very excited to be given the opportunity to distribute SPACE in Europe. Our years of experience in the international markets tell us that SPACE is worth serious consideration for anyone in need of a shared storage system. Our dealers have repeatedly asked us for a product such as this for a long time. We have known and worked with GB Labs for many years, and have great respect for their technical expertise and forward-thinking. With the addition of Polar Graphics as their distributor we will make a strong team."
