DVG designed and installed a Shared Storage and Asset Management System for Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM), headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland. The system utilized Facilis Technology TerraBlock as the heart for media and asset storage. JHM uses CatDV for media management and StorageDNA for backup and archive. Both systems are tightly integrated with the Facilis shared storage network.
Connectivity options for the editors was a key requirement. The dual connectivity utilizing both Fibre Channel and Ethernet is an important part of the system. The Facilis web console is the principal interface for managing the TerraBlock from a simple browser interface. Wi-Fi connections through a secure VPN enable those with permission to access volumes remotely.
