Fast, affordable shuttle RAID for media workflows
If you've been looking for a personal storage solution designed to deliver outstanding performance and reliability for media applications, you just found it! And with Symply you get personalized support when you need it from knowledgeable media and entertainment professionals.
SymplySPARK was designed to ignite your creativity by delivering consistently high throughput and low latency with plug-and-play convenience so you can do what you do best and not worry about managing your storage. SymplySPARK is ideal for media workflows in post-production, on-set, VFX, graphics, delivery, and in-house creative.
As a key component of the SymplyFIRST family of products, SPARK integrates seamlessly with the SymplyNEBULA cloud service, SymplyPRO LTO products, and SymplyADDR Thunderbolt PCIe expansions. Either on its own or part of Symply enhanced workflow SymplySPARK stands out.
When designing the product, we tapped some of the top development and manufacturers around and worked with media industry professionals to add the features and capabilities media professionals require. From simple things such as making the system more compact and lighter than other systems on the market using high quality steel, alloys and composites and adding a carry handle, to optimizing it for the new generation of multi-actuator hard drives that deliver SSD-like performance at a fraction the cost, and shipping in a wheeled hard case. All around the SymplySPARK was made with content creators in mind.
We also know how important deadlines are – time is money, and nothing is worse than missing a deadline due to equipment failure. Beyond hard drive hot swap-ability, the SPARK allows fast replacement of fans and power supplies. No need to send the system back with your valuable content on it or wait for an exchange system to arrive. The optional SymplySAM (self-assisted maintenance kit) comes packed in its own transport case with full instructions that have you back up and running in minutes. And if you ever need it, professional Symply support is just an email or phone call away.
