An ideal fit for digital media applications requiring shared, real-time storage with features such as ingest, playout, archive, edit-in-place, collaborative editing, transcoding and over-the-top (OTT) adaptive bitrate streaming.

Its exceptional performance is enabled by a proprietary distributed file system and the installation of the MediaGrid file system driver (FSD) on each client server.

Media operations can start with smaller MediaGrid systems —as little as 48 TB of capacity — and seamlessly scale to petabytes of capacity and tens of gigabytes per second of throughput. An industry-leading, high-density storage option — up to 672 TB of raw capacity in 5-RU — can reduce rack space and lower storage-related costs, minimizing total cost of ownership (TCO) through its exceptional price/performance capabilities.


Ethernet-based, scalable shared storage
High-density, up to 504 TB of raw capacity in 5 RU
Unique file system technology enables exceptionally high bandwidth across all capacity points
Simple and cost-effective to deploy, manage, and scale.


High scalability

MediaGrid is based on a fully distributed scalable architecture, resulting in increased performance as additional storage nodes are added. As the system is expanded, bandwidth and capacity increase linearly, actually improving access speed to content already on the system.

Simple & cost-effective

Based on standard hardware components and cost-effective Ethernet technology, MediaGrid is economical to purchase and maintain. There’s no need for file system reconfiguration as you scale, or for file system defragmentation as the file system ages.

Optimized for media workflow

MediaGrid works with dozens of leading media systems, including Harmonic Spectrum™ media servers. It also enables collaborative editing workflows with nonlinear editors, such as Apple® Final Cut Pro®, Avid® Media Composer® and Adobe® Premiere® Pro.

Reliability & availability

MediaGrid systems have no single point of failure, leverage features such as dual active-active controllers with transparent failover, redundant data paths to protect against storage node failures and transparent client failover to protect against controller failures. No downtime is required even for activities such as software and firmware upgrades or adding storage nodes.
