The Blackmagic Cloud Store is a very fast high capacity network disk that's designed to handle large media files used on Hollywood feature films.
The design uses advanced flash memory so it easily handles lots of simultaneous users. Plus it's extremely easy to set up. With Dropbox live sync, files can be distributed between multiple units globally for very fast local file access, even on lower cost internet connections.
Unlike SAN systems, you don't need IT consultants and there are no subscription fees. There's even an HDMI monitor output with real time storage status. All this means you get much better features than discount storage products sold at office supply stores.
Blackmagic Cloud Store is the perfect network storage solution for any use.
But it's perfect for film and television where large media files need to be shared between multiple users for editing, colour correction, audio post and VFX work.
It even handles massive 12K Blackmagic RAW digital cinema files. Each user gets zero latency and they don't need to store files on their local computer. It's the perfect solution for DaVinci Resolve.
Dropbox sync allows multiple disks to be synchronized in different locations globally. Then each location gets the fastest editing experience possible. That’s critical for multicam editing where multiple media files are playing simultaneously.
Unlike IT industry storage products that are rack mounted and have loud cooling fans, the Blackmagic Cloud Store is an elegant vertical design that's portable.
It's also whisper quiet so it can be used on location. Internally it has an array of flash memory cards working in parallel for speed and data protection. There are even 2 redundant power supplies.
The four 10G Ethernet ports operate as a switch so you can connect four separate computers, or they work together using "link aggregation" for a massive 40G Ethernet speed.
There is also an HDMI monitoring output so you can watch a live graphic view of the storage operating on a TV or monitor. It can even be maintained and repaired.
