The pandemic has been a catalyst for rapid change and a monumental shift to remote working, but from a data perspective it has made planning a lot more complicated. Which storage should you invest in? Cloud, on-prem, or both?

One thing is certain - remote working here to stay.

As short term fixes need to become longer terms plans, many people are finding efficient workflows are much harder and more difficult in the new landscape. Adding historic issues of multi-format data over spread out over numerous locations, into the mix also escalates the  problem.

UNIFY GBLABS

Introducing GB Labs Unify Hub, which unifies the many worlds of storage – on-prem, cloud and remote –  in a simplified and logical way, giving you ultimate flexibility. 

Unify Hub is a platform designed to meet all the challenges of today’s (media) production environment.

It applies intelligence to combine on premise and cloud storage, empowering remote production while maintaining data integrity and security. It also provides a ‘unified’ approach to content and metadata - wherever your material is physically stored – allowing the content needed to appear as a single, secure and coherent source, ideal for high-efficiency, collaborative and remote working.

UNIFY HUB SIMPLIFIES THE DIFFICULTY OF MANAGING MULTIPLE USERS TO/FROM MULTIPLE CLOUD SERVICES IN ONE ORGANISATION.

It’s a game-changer when it comes to the workflow behaviour that is not going away anytime soon. The cloud and/or on-prem experience has been completely redesigned – for remote or onsite users. And those users will just get what they want, when they want it, with minimal delay and expense.

SIMPLIFY, REVOLUTIONISE AND ULTIMATELY ‘UNIFY’ ALL ASPECTS OF MEDIA

Unify Hub is an appliance not only designed for the turmoil of today’s COVID-workflow, but it’s also a mind-shift of what and how storage actually is and means. Unique, independent, and compatible with all brands of storage – cloud and on-prem – there is no other product on the market that makes such an immediate and impactful difference to media professionals.

A GREAT BENEFIT TO THE UNIFY HUB APPLIANCE IS THAT PROVIDING YOU HAVE SMB SHARE ON YOUR STORAGE IT CAN WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANY THIRD PARTY STORAGE.

Unify Hub works with GB Labs storage, other manufacturer storage, cloud storage and cloud computer services – all packaged in a 1RU interface.

A comprehensive, evolving cloud storage platform provided by Amazon.

Unify Hub allows users to create specific ‘Cloud Workspaces’ on shared storage platforms linked to AWS S3 buckets. This allows multiple users to access the same content as if it were stored locally without the need to download the same files repeatedly.

Unify Hub allows users to create 'Cloud Workspaces' that scale with the needs of your business, which optimises the flexibility of Backblaze B2 storage.

Teams can collaborate on the same content stored remotely with Backblaze as if it were held on premise.

File hosting service that offers cloud storage, file synchronisation, personal cloud and client software.

For Dropbox users Unify Hub features a specific sync tool to ensure that data on premise is always aligned with your Dropbox storage locations. GB Labs ‘Live Sync’ can be configured to synchronise in both directions or push content to Dropbox as well as pull content from specific Dropbox locations.

Cloud-based file storage and synchronisation service.

Ideal for smaller collaborative projects, integration with Google Drive allows users to remotely add content to the cloud without having to go anywhere near their on premise storage. Creative teams in the office get the same local storage experience as if this remote content was actually stored in the building, offering teams the best of both worlds.

Wasabi hot storage is fast becoming a platform for long term project storage.

Unify Hub allows users to create the same ‘Cloud Workspaces’ with the ability to intelligently download content and cache it locally, when needed thus dramatically reducing egress charges. This has the greatest impact for teams collaborating on the same content.

 

Unify Hub is available as a turnkey appliance that’s going to simplify, revolutionise and ultimately ‘unify’ all aspects of media. Available immediately, aggressively priced, with full support and maintenance options, Unify Hub is the missing link to your data workflow.

Unify Hub leverages your current infrastructure, as well as your future plans and can work in conjunction with your current on-prem storage to give remote workers a seamless in-office experience.

Unify Hub can handle remote access to the content without having to move any content from the original storage. A massive bonus - enabling remote users to continue to work securely with this original content.
