Now you can share your media files globally, in minutes!
Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini lets you share your media files globally, eliminating the high cost of collaborating with talented editors and colorists around the world! The Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is storage that syncs and shares media with Dropbox and Google Drive. It even understands proxy workflows, so a whole timeline and its media can be shared in minutes. The internal memory core is so fast it can saturate the 10G Ethernet port to its theoretical maximum speed, even with multiple users connected. File access is very low latency, so responsiveness is fast. That means it's perfect for sharing large media files between editors, colorists, audio engineers and VFX artists!
Cloud Store Mini 8TB
High performance rack mount flash storage solution, features 8 TB capacity, RAID 0 flash memory core, 10G Ethernet, 1G Ethernet, USB-C, Dropbox and Google Drive sync for distributing files globally.
Designed for Film and Television
Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is the perfect network storage solution for any use! It's great for film and television where large media files need to be shared between multiple users for editing, color correction, audio post and VFX work. It even handles massive 12K Blackmagic RAW digital cinema files! Each user gets zero latency and they don't need to store files on their local computer. It?s the perfect solution for DaVinci Resolve! Dropbox and Google Drive sync allows multiple disks to be synchronized in different locations globally. Then each location gets the fastest editing experience possible. That?s critical for multicam editing where multiple media files are playing simultaneously!
Portable and Quiet Design
Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini features a compact rack mount design that's very portable and whisper quiet. Internally it has an array of 4 flash memory cards working in parallel for higher speed. The 10G Ethernet port and the 1G Ethernet port operate as a 2 port network switch. That?s great if you don't have a 10G Ethernet network, as you can connect the 10G port directly into your computer and the 1G port to your existing network. If you need to access files quickly, then the USB-C even operates as a network connection, simply by plugging it into your computer. There is also an HDMI monitoring output so you can watch a live graphic view of the storage operating on a TV or monitor.
Flash Memory Allows Multiple Simultaneous Users
The Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is available with 8 TB of flash memory, so you have lots of space for your files. That?s fantastic for television production, as it?s small enough to be portable, but it has enough storage space for lots of video media. M.2 flash memory cards are used for extreme reliability, high access speeds and zero seek times. Plus the four M.2 cards are arranged in a parallel RAID 0 group so they can operate much faster than a single card. That ensures enough speed to keep up with the 10G Ethernet connection. Plus in the future, as new larger M.2 cards are released, the flash memory cards can be replaced with new ones. That ensures a very long life!
High Performance for Digital Film Files
With a separate very high speed 10G Ethernet connection, Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is very fast. The internal memory core has been designed to saturate the 10G Ethernet port to its theoretical maximum speed, even with multiple users connected. It?s so fast, most computers cannot keep up! Plus file access is very low latency, so responsiveness is fast. That?s possible because of the parallel processing used by the memory core. Even at maximum speed, the Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is extremely quiet with very little cooling fan noise. Even when editing large 12K digital film RAW files. It?s so fast, multicam editing is very smooth, even if it?s used with large digital film camera files!
Sync to Dropbox and Google Drive
Now you can setup a local cache of your Dropbox and Google Drive files! This makes working much faster because files are instantly available without needing to be downloaded from the internet. Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini will constantly work to stay in sync. You can save space on your computer by moving cached Dropbox and Google Drive files to the Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini so everyone on your network can share them. You can even sync multiple Blackmagic Cloud Store Minis via Dropbox and Google Drive so people in different geographic locations can collaborate without latency because everyone has a local copy of the files. Dropbox and Google Drive are also fantastic backup solutions!
Distribute Files Globally
With support for Dropbox and Google Drive sync, you can use multiple Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini units to share files globally. That?s important when working with large datasets or massive digital film and video files. These files need to be constantly accessed dozens of times a second, so most internet connections are too slow to handle it. While the internet has too much latency to access large files remotely, you can use it to sync these files. Syncing the files to local storage totally eliminates delays in accessing them. That's because everyone has a local copy of the files on their network. Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini will constantly sync files, even if your computer is turned off!
Real Time Monitoring
The most exciting feature is the HDMI monitoring output! Simply connect a TV or computer monitor to get a live status of the Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini. The storage map shows a graphic representation of the memory core and real time read and write access happening for the connected users. It?s quite mesmerizing to watch! There are also graphs that show you the data transfers on the Ethernet connections. The main space indicator shows you the capacity of the memory core and how much is currently being used. You can also add a custom name to the store! The status for each Dropbox and Google Drive connection is also shown. It's even possible to see connected users and the power supply status.
High Performance 10G Ethernet
The Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini has a high speed 10G Ethernet port, which is only found on expensive workstation computers. With 10G Ethernet, you get 10 times the speed of regular Ethernet. Plus most computers can be upgraded to add 10G Ethernet. The Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is so fast, it will run the 10G Ethernet port to its maximum capacity. Even when connected to an Ethernet switch with dozens of users accessing files at the same time. The 10G Ethernet port also features very low latency for fast access times. There is also a separate 1G Ethernet port, plus Ethernet on the USB-C port, so you can keep the fast 10G Ethernet port free for a faster computer.
Connect via USB-C for Quick File Access
Modern laptop computers are so thin, they often don't even have an Ethernet connection! That means you need an adapter to connect to an Ethernet network. These adapters are annoying and make it harder to just plug your computer into the storage to access a file. Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini has a USB-C to Ethernet adapter built in and you can access it simply by plugging your computer into the USB-C port on the store. Plus USB-C cables are much nicer than stiff Ethernet cables! Once you have connected the Cloud Store Mini?s USB-C connection to your computer, you have an Ethernet connection to the store! That means you can just plug in to quickly grab files when you need them urgently!
Repairable Design for Long Life
Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is easy to repair by qualified IT engineers. The design is based on a single PCB that attaches to the 4 memory cards and the AC power supply. This means the flash memory cards can be removed and replaced. Plus Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini runs Blackmagic OS so it applies wear leveling, so each M.2 card won't see excessive data writes. You can also see any card faults on the utility and the HDMI monitor output. Plus in future, as new and larger M.2 flash memory cards are released, the Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini can be upgraded so it has much larger capacity. That?s possible because M.2 flash memory cards are an open standard and available from any computer dealer.
