xStor Smart Petabyte From Galileo Digital Delivers Massive Storage Plus Axle Ai Video Search for Under $100k

REDONDO BEACH, Calif., Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Galileo Digital has announced immediate availability of a 1PB (one petabyte) storage turnkey solution priced at $99,995 and integrated with software from axle ai, Inc. The system represents a value breakthrough in an industry where petabyte-scale solutions have typically cost many hundreds of thousands, and even millions of dollars. A petabyte ? 1,000 terabytes of storage space ? is increasingly needed today as video production skyrockets and resolutions move ever higher.

Designed for excellent performance and reliability at an aggressive price point, xStor systems are the only hard disk-based storage systems to be painstakingly tested and optimized for use with Lasergraphics film scanners. It is no simple task to meet the massive storage demands of high resolution, ultra-fast scanners: enormous capacity, extremely high data write speeds, unrestrained scalability, and a low total cost of ownership.

The configuration includes a 1U application server running a 5-user version of axle ai 2019, the company's 'radically simple' video search software. The software features a browser front end that enables multiple users to tag, catalog and search their media files, and a range of AI-driven options to automatically catalog and discover specific visual and audio attributes within those files. Given the large amounts of video, often multiple terabytes, that are accumulated in a day of scanning or by a video team in a single shoot, this system saves enormous time and effort by allowing rapid search and management of those media files.

Steve Klenk, CEO of Galileo Digital, said "We've seen increasing demand for xStor family of network storage arrays, which combine filesystem and object protocols along with massive storage density and high throughput. Integrating axle ai's radically simple video search with a petabyte of enterprise storage ? at this price point ? is truly a breakthrough product."

Pricing and Availability

The xStor Smart Petabyte is available immediately from Galileo Digital and its global resellers, at a price of $99,995. This includes one petabyte of enterprise disk-based storage, 10 Gigabit/second and 1 Gigabit/second network interfaces, and both filesystem and object storage protocol access, as well as the axle ai 2019 video search application. Optional software modules ? including AI-driven speech transcription, face recognition and object recognition ? are available with prices starting at under $2.00 per hour of footage analyzed.
