Collaboratively Edit from AVID with non AVID hardware

September 29, 2008 Leave a reply

Earlier this year Condor was in the press for rolling out the first 42TB. array built for the MAC/Apple platform while concurrently supporting other OS’s. Combined with backup software that ignores per terabyte licensing costs, we were able to deliver the perfect D2D backup solution for larger MAC clients. That brought us to the question…what other nifty MAC products can we find to help clients reduce costs, save time and go non-proprietary with Apple/Apple vendors. We have clients developing websites, video games and involved with both pre and post production and usually they have more than one person working on things. For clients with three or more editing stations wanting to collaboratively share one project with true file level sharing, not just read access sharing, that’s been expensive to achieve. Condor Storage now has storage plus the front end share solution and it’s truly unique. Avid and Final Cut Pro editors can instantly see, copy or revise the work of colleagues with the assurance that a bin, sequence or project will never get accidentally deleted or overwritten. This kind of sharing “fuels’ the creative process, and is crucial for feature film editing, news editing, promo production, reality TV production, and any genre where rapid content creation is required.

Open Source Cloud Computing

Hello Condor Readers,

We are seeking beta participants for a new open source cloud computing NAS gateway. You can build this privately or port to a public cloud such as Amazon S3 or Nirvanix.  Differentiator: Performance scales as you add nodes and up to “150+” nodes can be built out with no performance penalties, plus it’s easy to administer by a typical IT person (no need for knowledge of clustering/luster/HPC, etc.). ROI [vs. a public cloud price model], is less than 6 months in most cases. Condor Storage is a Value Added Reseller, meaning we architect, showcase and integrate data storage products we have carefully selected for their unique edge over what is commercially available at higher costs. We are proud of our abilities to broker significant price breaks for our repeat clients. If you are interested in more details on this product, please contact us. Special early adopter pricing is available. email: or Visit our Contact US page and we’ll call you right back:

Also, have you played around yet with Animoto, a web2.0 startup for making your own online videos set to music tracks. I am pasting in a link to this site, all you need is digital pictures to get started. This company is bound to be snatched up, as they have a revenue model right out of the gate (if you would like videos longer than 30 seconds). $30 a year gets you unlimited videos or buy one at a time for $3 each. Unlimited “Free” videos are are available but are limited to 30 seconds or less (about 15 pictures). A way cool idea and some very nifty coding/programming going on behind the scenes. I am impressed.
