Ludicrous Mode Storage
PAIN POINT

Do you need shared storage that just works? 

For most creatives, a large capital budget, racks of servers, and dedicated IT staff are not an option. The storage solutions that fit their speed, capacity, and budget requirements are unattainable so compromises are made. Lengthy legacy storage testing cycles result in “cutting-edge” hardware being obsolete by the time it hits the market. creative.space’s //ROGUE PRO was built without compromise; fitting next-generation technology into a desktop form factor. 

Benefit

Enterprise-level performance, without enterprise-level problems

The //ROGUE PRO is quiet, runs cool, and is easy to manage while delivering blazing fast speed for the most demanding workflows. No corners were cut in the building of this storage powerhouse. Small enough to sit directly in your workspace, the //ROGUE PRO achieves the capacity and performance typically expected from a rack of storage servers. 

PROOF POINT

Got speed? PCIe 4.0

Edit at the speed of your own creativity. While other storage solutions struggle to pass 500-700 MB/s per connection, over a 10GbE connection the //ROGUE PRO consistently writes at 850 MB/s and reads of 1065 MB/s using Blackmagic Design’s Disk Speed Test.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy this system?

As a systems integrator, DigitalGlue has sold enterprise storage solutions from other vendors. With the traditional sales model, storage is purchased as a capital expense, which means you must pay taxes on it and depreciate the value each year. In addition, you still have to pay 10-25% of the purchase price every year for a SLA (Service Level Agreement) just to get reactive support. The SLA is an operational expense which means you CAN deduct it from your taxes as part of your operational costs.

On-Premise Managed Storage (OPMS) simplifies storage by combining hardware, software, and support into a single monthly or annual service rate. All three can be claimed as a single operational expense. Our next-gen architecture enables us to provide industry-leading performance at a dramatically lower price point, so this single service rate is often lower than JUST the SLA cost of traditional solutions.

What kind of support is included?

DigitalGlue's creative.space platform uses integrated monitoring tools to provide the first and only storage solution with proactive support. Over 2000 metrics are tracked every second, which trigger prebuilt alarms to notify the proper support staff to investigate.

There are three levels of support that are available based on the level of access:

1. VPN-based Proactive Support:
Storage is connected to the internet and the support team is able to access via secure VPN.

2. Email-based Proactive Support:
Storage is connected to the internet with a secure firewall in place that only allow outbound emails over a single port. Automated emails are sent based on alarm triggers that include a description of the problem and a 10 minute diagnostic view of the system. Support will reach out to assist customer-defined representative.

3. Reactive Support:
No connection is available to storage. Notifications can be sent to customer-defined representatives internally. Customer must reach out to DigitalGlue team for support. Support logs can be downloaded by customer and sent to support.


Is the creative.space software included?

Yes. The software is included on all systems. Support also includes updates to both front-end and back-end software.

What happens if I don't renew the support?

No problem. You keep your system as is.

If you want reactive support or updates in the future, you can get phone support for $150/hr. On-site visits are $1500/day plus travel costs.

If you need replacement drives, just let us know.

Can I connect and offload files off of USB devices?

Yes! We auto-mount USB devices that are connected to the //AUTEUR and present them under the Ingest tab on the Spaces page of the web app. From there, you can use the compare and copy tool to ingest files to your spaces.

Two scenarios this functionality can be helpful for...

1. Offloading Camera Media: You can connect a card reader for your camera media and offload directly into the //ROGUE PRO. You don't have to worry about reformatting the card. Keep shooting and use the built-in conflict resolution options to bring in only the new files.

2. Syncing Editor Drives: Connect the drives to the //ROGUE PRO and copy the project folder to them. The editors can go work on their drives, updating their project files and adding additional assets as needed. When you need to update your //ROGUE PRO with each editor's new work, just point the Copy and Sync tool to the project folders on each device and use the conflict resolution options to push, pull, or sync them. No more manual investigation to see what's new.

How is the storage backed up?

The //ROGUE PRO is designed as an online storage appliance. It is recommended that you always backup your valuable data to a secondary and even tertiary storage tier to prevent loss.

We provide RAID options, which protect against data loss in varying drive failure scenarios.

Another feature that can protect you from data loss is Snapshots. When you take a Snapshot of one of your Spaces, a read-only copy of it is instantly created that doesn't take up any additional space. The Snapshot grows in size as you orphan files and/or blocks in the Space through deletion or revision.

Can remote editors connect to my spaces?

Yes, but with a few caveats. The //ROGUE PRO is an enterprise shared storage system that is accessible over whatever networking you set up for it. While you can provide access via a public IP address, we recommend setting up a Virtual Private Network (VPN). The main caveat is that speed will be limited to your internet connectivity.

Will it work with X Application?

Any application that can access SMB or NFS mounts should work out of the box. We have tested and optimized for Adobe Premiere and After Effects, DaVinci Resolve, Apple Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and more.

The only caveat is that Avid Media Composer requires you to use the Ultimate version for Bin Locking and MIMIQ, an additional per-seat 3rd party license, to unlock SMB support. Licenses for MIMIQ are available for $250 a seat with volume discounts available.
